Donald Trump went after The New York Times this morning, embarking on yet another rant about the poor persecuted alpha male with a pair of tweets:

What Donald Trump is referring to here is a lie he told back on November 13, 2016, in another tweet:

Of course, this never happened. The New York Times did not apologize to readers or tell them their coverage of Trump was “bad.”

In fact, as PolitiFact reports of the incident,

“A spokeswoman for the New York Times told PolitiFact: ‘We’re incredibly proud of our coverage of the 2016 campaign. There was no suggestion either in our note to staff, or the note to subscribers, that we were apologizing.'”

So no, Donald. We don’t remember. Because it never happened.

What has happened is that while the media has begun to actually report about Donald Trump‘s lies they have gone easy on him, often declining to use the word “lie” in favor of “false” or “inaccurate.”

The fact is, media coverage is far from “vicious” and inaccurate only in the sense that many media outlets are far too willing to normalize, even now, Trump‘s extremism.

We are left this morning with ‘President’ Trump repeating an already debunked lie about his coverage in the Times, actually lying about the Times lying about him.

Which is about what you would expect from a morning tweetstorm from Donald Trump, the most persecuted alpha male in the history of persecuted alpha males. Sad!
