Donald Trump has taken his feud with the press to a whole new level.
On Tuesday evening, the president took to Twitter (because, duh) to announce that he’s launching a new awards ceremony. And, after berating the mainstream media for the last year, it’s no wonder the honorees are those from the press whom POTUS deems “dishonest” and “bad.”
For someone who criticizes the media so much, you’d think he’d try to improve his vocabulary. SMH.
Anyhoo, the Commander-In-Chief shared with his 45.7 million followers:
I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR on Monday at 5:00 o├óΓé¼Γäóclock. Subjects will cover Dishonesty & Bad Reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media. Stay tuned!

The reality TV star-turned-politician first teased the awards show idea back in November. At the time, the Trumpster posted:
We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me). They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!

We’re so glad that the leader of the free world is focusing on THIS as his big platform. *Eye roll*
Not to mention, Donnie has yet to elaborate on how he intends to execute the anti-press ceremony. What is this? The Razzies for the media world??
Regardless, many online have taken to roasting Trump over his unnecessary and unprecedented gesture against news professionals. See the best reactions (below).
. @realDonaldTrump you are honestly an invalid idiot. Please go away. Please go away tomorrow. As soon as you can. Please. At least do some good for the world. Resign. Then you can go live a happy life at the Trump Vegas.

Donald Trump inventing “fake news” awards are in the same category of crazy as when Venezuela invented a peace prize and awarded it to Vladimir Putin.

The weirdest part of this is he├óΓé¼Γäós going to creep into the nominees├óΓé¼Γäó dressing room when they├óΓé¼Γäóre half naked. https://t.co/mZViUaXkJe

The tweet about North Korea followed up by the tweet about an awards show for fakest news is the most Donald Trump 20 minutes imaginable

At a time when an authoritarian regime that is the United States’s adversary is trying to shut down pro-democratic protests through media censorship (as well as plenty of violence), this seems unhelpful https://t.co/xQsrbPmqQj
