Trump tweeted Saturday: ‘So much Fake News is being reported. They don’t even try to get it right, or correct it when they are wrong. They promote the Fake Book of a mentally deranged author, who knowingly writes false information.’
The president added a parting shot at the media, in closing: ‘The Mainstream Media is crazed that WE won the election!’
The president was lambasted for the tweet, which he sent during a day of golfing at Mar-a-Largo. He has not addressed an incident earlier in the day that saw Hawaiians running for their lives after an emergency alert erroneously went out about an incoming ballistic missile.

Smerconish took particular issue with the idea that Wolff gained access to the White House, and people within, under false pretenses.
