A day after Sports Illustrated (which apparently has ventured off into politics now because that’s worked so well for declining ESPN), reported — based on anonymous sources — that President Trump had referred to the White House as a “dump” while at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf club, the president is denying the report in no uncertain terms and classified the report as “fake news.”
“I love the White House, one of the most beautiful buildings (homes) I have ever seen,” Trump tweeted. “But Fake News said I called it a dump – TOTALLY UNTRUE.”

All mainstream media outlets reported the news, of course, framing the narrative that the President thinks he’s too good to live in the White House.
But unless they had the “deep state” record the conversation, for now, we’ll have to take Trump at his word since the track record of these types of stories based on anonymous sources is not very good, especially when it comes from leftist sources (yes, almost all of sports media journalists are leftists) who are out to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump.
