Washington Post reporter apologizes for ‘bad tweet’ after Trump calls him out

December 10, 2017

694940094001_5673136222001_5673113157001-vsA Washington Post reporter on Saturday apologized for his “bad tweet” after President Trump called him out by name for posting a misleading photo about the crowd size during Friday’s rally.

“It was a bad tweet on my personal account, not a story for Washington Post,” the reporter, Dave Weigel, tweeted Saturday. “I deleted it after like 20 minutes. Very fair to call me out.”

In a now-deleted tweet, Weigel, known for his humorous take on the news on Twitter, posted a photo of a half empty arena to mock Trump for saying Friday’s rally in Pensacola was “packed to the rafters.”

But that photo was not taken while Trump was speaking. Trump tweeted photos showing the arena full.

    This is the Washington Post, which is a big pile of crap and other things. That’s why it is called the Washington Compost.This fellow is only sorry because he got caught!

  • WhiteFalcon says:

    He needs to apologize for being a Washington Post reporter. I would change professions before working for that bunch of liars.

  • ccblogging says:

    Apologize is an empty word from the Deep State Democrat controlled FAKE NEWS MEDIA’S.

    Again, where is the condemnation from the rest of the press? I remember when an FBI agent wrote a book in the early part of the Clinton Administration blasting the conduct of that administration. It was hammered in the press. None other than George Stephanapolis, before he took over the show, went on “This Week” and said if you can’t confirm one statement in a book, the entire book is false. What does this say about the press now? ABC, CNN, the Bezos Washington Post all LIE regularly about this administration, yet very little in condemnation from the rest of the media. Yet let Fox News or One America News get Obama’s birthday wrong and see how quick they are to pounce.

    Honesty and Integrity!

    What other foolish notions does PRESIDENT TRUMP expect from the PROPAGANDA MACHINE commonly known as the ‘main stream media’?
