Trump Slams BuzzFeed as ‘Failing Pile of Garbage,’ Rejects CNN Question Over ‘Fake’ Report

Included in the report was the accusation that Trump has “personal obsessions and sexual perversion,” including for graphic sex acts.

“It is disgraceful” that the US intelligence agencies allowed the two-page report that was “false and fake and never happened” to be made public, Trump said of the report published by BuzzFeed, which he called a “failing pile of garbage.”

CNN, which also published the report, said that they tried to get a comment on the story from Trump’s team for “more than half a day.”

“What I suspect you’re seeing here is an attempt to discredit” genuine news sources, said CNN host Jake Tapper immediately after Trump’s press conference.

Tapper added that he could understand why the president-elect was upset by uncorroborated accusations being posted on the internet.

“I would be too,” he said. “That’s why we didn’t publish any of the details.”

Acosta later tweeted that he got another reporter to ask the question. He told CNN that Trump’s spokesman Sean Spicer threatened to eject him from the press conference if he tried asking another question.

CNN has sought some distance from BuzzFeed on Wednesday, saying they were “fully confident” in their own reporting and calling on Trump and his team to “identify, specifically, what they believe is inaccurate” in the network’s coverage.
