Trump Calls on Washington Post to Fire Writer Dave Weigel

President Donald Trump is embroiled in another row with the press, calling for a Washington Post journalist to be fired after the reporter admitted tweeting a inaccurate image of an empty arena the President was due to speak at.

He posted the photo of a half-empty arena, in contradiction to Trump claiming that it was "packed to the rafters".

The President had earlier told his 45 million followers: "Packed house, many people unable to get in".

U.S. President Donald Trump has rarely been shy to voice his disapproval of the Washington Post, a newspaper he has repeatedly denounced as being a "fake news" organization.

Weigel quickly deleted the tweet after another journalist pointed out his error, but a screenshot of the original tweet made it to Trump (or a member of his staff) regardless.

Weigl had deleted the tweet after 20 minutes, and apologized for posting the image-but the president still demanded his sacking. He said he deleted the photo after another reporter "told me I'd gotten it wrong".

Weigel, who is known for his humorous take to politics, tweeted back, "It was a bad tweet on my personal account, not a story for Washington Post". On Saturday morning, he attacked CNN for making a what called a "vicious and purposeful mistake" when it was forced to correct a story about the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks. "There are many outlets that are far more trusted than Fake News CNN". The photo Weigel shared, however, was taken before all the rallygoers or the president had arrived, and the venue eventually did ultimately fill up to what looked like capacity by the time Trump's speech began.

You can always count on President Trump to bash the media, whether the reporting is accurate. "Watch to see if @CNN fires those responsible, or was it just gross incompetence?" he tweeted. Everyone knows this is not true, that this could, in fact, be a fraud on the American Public.

So when is Trump going to acknowledge his crowd size lie?

Meanwhile, Twitter comedians are fabricating their own feuds with Trump, which are at least as credible as the actual president's obsession with the crowd sizes. "You should have been apologizing for the last two years", Trump said to laughter and cheers at a rally in Florida.
