Naw, it's the president who's fake. All the news has to do is replay what he says. If it is interpreted any way other than favorably, he'll call it fake anyway. Why'd he fire Comey again? Cause he did such a bad job :) Yep, Trump is cleaning the swamp --of a guy who said he'd be honest. Some see the irony.

Meanwhile over at the CIA
President Donald Trump’s comments are undermining the integrity of the office of the president, former US Secretary of Defense and CIA Director Leon Panetta said on Tuesday.
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On Monday, the Washington Post newspaper reported that Trump had shared with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov intelligence about the Daesh terror group (banned in Russia) without the permission of the US ally nation that had obtained it.
"The problem that really bothers me is that it undermines the credibility of the office of the presidency. He is president of the United States. He is not a reality TV star," Panetta said on CNN’s "New Day" program.
Trump on Tuesday morning said he had every right to share with Russian officials facts about the fight against terrorism and airline safety.
Panetta, who served as defense secretary from 2011-2013 and CIA director from 2009-2011, said Trump should understand that his words have consequences, and he should take responsibility for the country and national security.

Former CIA acting director Michael Morell said President-elect Donald Trump will undermine the agency by causing a “wave of resignations” and affecting its ability to work with foreign intelligence services.
“First, expect a wave of resignations. Attrition at the C.I.A., which has been remarkably low since Sept. 11, 2001, will skyrocket,” Morell wrote in a New York Times op-ed published Friday.
Morell’s latest criticism of the president-elect comes as the intelligence community issued a declassified report that found Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign to help Trump win the presidency.
Morell said Trump’s rejection of the CIA’s assessment about Russia’s interference is “an unprecedented political challenge for our national security establishment” and “a danger to the nation.”
While Morell called Trump’s Friday intelligence briefing “a step in the right direction,” he also said “his disparagement of American intelligence officers over the last few months is likely to cause significant damage to the CIA.”
Trump’s comments will make it difficult for the agency to work with other foreign intelligence services and develop foreign assets, Morell explained.
“Why would a foreign intelligence service take the CIA seriously (and share important information with it) when the American president doesn’t?” he wrote.
Trump, who signaled throughout his presidential campaign that he wanted to improve relations with Russia, has criticized the Intelligence Community for its assessments about Russia’s interference in the United States election.
After the Washington Post reported last month on a CIA assessment that concluded Russia meddled in the election in an effort to help Trump win, Trump’s transition team slammed the CIA, citing its intelligence about supposed weapons of mass destruction in the lead-up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq.
Morell previously criticized Trump in an August op-ed for the New York Times in which he declared his support for Democratic presidential candidate
Trump's visit was his first official one since becoming President
The President sought to send a message of support to the intelligence community

Washington (CNN)Former CIA Director John Brennan is "deeply saddened and angered" at President Donald Trump after the commander in chief addressed CIA employees at their headquarters in Langley, Virginia, on Saturday, Brennan's former deputy chief of staff says.
Trump spent much of his speech -- which he gave in front of a memorial wall that honors the 117 CIA officers who have fallen in the line of duty -- focusing on the size of the crowd size at his inauguration, his appearance on magazine covers and saying he "has a running war with the media."
"Former CIA Director Brennan is deeply saddened and angered at Donald Trump's despicable display of self-aggrandizement in front of CIA's Memorial Wall of Agency heroes," Nick Shapiro said in a statement. "Brennan says that Trump should be ashamed of himself."
One source who attended Trump's appearance said many people there were troubled by the political aspect of the remarks, in which the president speculated about how many people in the room may have voted for him.
"We are not political in that way," the source said. "Talking about whether we voted for Trump is offensive and foreign to us by the president ... Many people felt used and awkward throughout. Of course there was applause, but it was uncomfortable."
