White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer got into a huge debate with reporters today after Trump accused them of making “fake news” today. A reporter then asked Sean Spicer to list an example of “fake news,” so Spicer pointed to a tweet by a BBC reporter and all hell broke loose…. Watch.
Russian officials must be laughing at the U.S. & how a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election has taken over the Fake News.

That’s right Sean Spicer caught Jim Acosta right then and there in that video. He pointed out a fake news article put out by a BBC reporter that claimed Trump was not wearing a translation earpiece.
“On Friday, the president was having a great discussion at the G7 and someone from the BBC, and ultimately an incoming reporter for the New York Times retweeted that the president was being rude by disrespecting the Italian prime minister,” Spicer complained. “When in fact, you all in all of the meetings watched the president with that one earpiece that’s been used by all the other presidents… That’s just fake!”
The BBC issued a public correction on the article and less than two hours later, or at least that’s what reporters shot back with.
“I was asked to give an example, and I did it,” a testy Spicer shot back.
Hit them where it hurts, Spicer. The media is consistently attacking him and the Trump administration
