This is real life: Trump vs truth #283098

Go back in time one year and tell your younger self that this:
is a tweet from the U.S. President, who also happens to be this same person that same day:


How far can Trump go in this direction before his supporters oppose him? My year-ago self said this would have already crossed a line of shared sacred values to Americans for any President to say. My current self thinks there's no limit on what his supporters will accept here. Shepard Smith defended the press' obligation to question Trump on his Russia scandals, and now I'm seeing people calling for him to be fired from Fox News. Are people done pretending they watch Fox News because it's "fair and balanced"? How many people have started to exclusively go to Breitbart because Fox News is the liberal mainstream media to them?
