Heavy Lies the Crown
This is a hilarious but galling story and video of Trump's Ambassador to the Netherlands Pete Hoekstra slamming a Dutch journalist for "fake news" and insisting he never said what he's asking about saying -- then being shown the tape of him, in fact, saying it -- and then insisting he never said "fake news". The reporter's reaction of pure bewilderment leaps out as understandable.
This is pure Trump administration. Just deny reality, even when the reality is crammed in your face, and try to tear down the press by crying "Fake news!" about anything and near-everything you don't like and lie, lie, lie, lie.
You can read the story here -- and this is the video of the full exchange.

II think you misspelled clown. Though, with this administration, we're talking Pennywise more than Bozo.

"Clown" would have been good. Though him being ambassador, I'm okay with it as is.

That's because you're a nicer person than I am. 😁
