Trump Flips Out On CNN's Jeff Zeleny For Challenging Him On Voter Fraud

Trump continues to attack the press like no other president, elect or otherwise since Richard Nixon during the run up to Watergate.

Donald Trump took to twitter to attack CNN over Jeff Zeleny's report on Anderson Cooper's AC360, that there isn't any evidence of mass voter fraud of which Trump claimed stole the popular vote away from him.

Zeleny said, "Donald Trump is showing signs of being a sore winner. The president elect is suggesting with zero evidence to back up his claims, if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally."

Vanity always seems to get the best of Trump and he took to his trusty twitter account to let the world know just how horrible CNN and Zeleny are.

As always, he doesn't need any evidence because it's up to the press to find evidence that there wasn't massive election fraud against him.

Jeff Zeleny replied:

Trump has always thrown out "lies as facts" during his run to the presidency. Proving a negative" or an "argument from ignorance" is part of his calling card and if reporters dare expose them, they are just bad and never learn.

Politico writes, "Trump's Sunday claim of mass voter fraud in California, Virginia and New Hampshire was rebuffed by officials in all three states Monday.

“We have heard claims like this in the past, relative to our elections, but we have been provided no evidence that suggests that there is voter fraud on a widespread scale in New Hampshire,” David Scanlan, New Hampshire’s deputy secretary of state, told POLITICO in a phone interview Monday."

Apparently they aren't looking as hard as Alex Jones has, but don't mind the alien invasion attacking humanity!

UPDATE: Dylan Byers writes:

Trump's penchant for peddling conspiracy theories and attacking critics and media organizations on Twitter is unprecedented, and has been cause for concern among journalists and media watchdogs who are wrestling with how to cover a president who is a leading source of misinformation.

You have to continually call him out for it.
