President Trump is officially enjoying the first day of his 17-day extended vacation at his National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, but that’s not stopping him from tweeting.

He wants everyone to know what a success he’s currently having against ISIS, so he tweeted a story from the Washington Post in order to back up his claims. That’s all fine and dandy, but Trump has repeatedly called out the Jeff Bezos ‘Amazon-owned’ paper as being ‘fake news.’

So, that begs the question: are they only fake when they publish stuff he doesn’t like?

This makes them pretty well-rounded – the fact that they publish the news and not just hit pieces on Trump. This is evidence of that fact.


The truth is, as the Post reports, “nearly a third of territory reclaimed from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria since 2014 has been won in the past six months, due to new policies adopted by the Trump administration.” Note how the Post states that the source of the information came from a senior State Department official. The claims haven’t been verified independently but we aren’t in any position to doubt the claims at the current moment.

In any case, the internet immediately responded to let Trump know about the hypocrisy of his post:

It sounds like Trump is considering the Washington Post an accurate supplier of information, again. The more they praise Trump the more legitimate they will be.
