Donald Trump hit out at CNN during a press conference yesterday, accusing the television channel of being “fake news” and “a bunch of mooks”.
In his first press conference in six months, the President-elect slammed mainstream media outlets such as Buzzfeed and CNN for peddling “phony stuff”.
The term “mook” is defined in the Oxford English Dictionary as a “a stupid or incompetent person” or, more recently, “a person who believes fake news”.
Trump seems to be insinuating that all CNN journalists, producers and executives are all “mooks”, as well as anyone who believes their stories.
As for the allegations that Trump will be banning all representatives of mainstream media from future conferences and only granting access to hand-picked publications, Mook News can confirm that this is absolutely true.
