President Donald Trump proposed a contest for mainstream media networks to highlight the most dishonest network reporting about his presidency.

“We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me),” he wrote on Twitter on Monday. “They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!”

Trump’s frustration with the media continues as they spent the morning focusing on the unfolding leadership squabbles over the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Russia investigation, and more coverage of the Access Hollywood tape that was released during the election:

The president also highlighted a Breitbart News story about Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski pre-taping fake banter about Thanksgiving for their show.

“The good news is that their ratings are terrible, nobody cares!” he responded.
