Forget about the Golden Globes or Oscars this year. President Trump unveiled the ‘winners’ of the highly-anticipated 2017 Fake News Awards on Thursday night, naming names and calling-out the worst mainstream media offenders as they breathlessly attacked the President during his first 12-months in the Oval Office.
“2017 was a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage, and even downright fake news. Studies have shown that over 90% of the media’s coverage of President Trump is negative,” writes the official GOP website. “Below are the winners of the 2017 Fake News Awards.”

HANNITY: Mainstream Media TOTALLY ADDICTED to Attacking TRUMP
Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night, Sean unloaded on the mainstream media; saying liberal journalists are completely “addicted” to attacking the President.
“Hating President Trump is their drug in the media. By the way, to them, it’s more addictive than heroin and crack cocaine,” said Hannity.
“In their liberal media bubble, a Trump tweet literally sends them into orbit. Alka-Seltzer in water, they bubble and fizz every day. It’s like a dopamine rush to their brains, the drug is that powerful they can’t duplicate it any other way,” he added.
“Not only are they all a bunch of sheep… But they’re drug addicts in this sense: They crave their next Trump tweet, they need their fix,” said Sean. “If for some reason there’s not a tweet within 24 hours, there’s not a comment, there’s no fake outrage, well then they have to latch onto something that’ll satisfy their craving, they race back to their gateway drug: Trump-Russia.”
“For over a year, you have been subjected to Russia collusion… the only thing missing are facts,” he added.

BOMBSHELL: Washington Post Publishes SCANDALOUS Report on Trump’s ‘Favorite Candy’
The mainstream media continued its non-stop obsession with President Trump and his administration this week, pushing crazed conspiracy theories for months including a new “bombshell” report from the Washington Post that details Trump’s scandalous candy preferences.
The Post took some time from its never-ending conspiracy theories surrounding Russia’s attempt to steal the 2016 presidential race from Hillary Clinton to focus on yet another scandal surrounding the White House: The President’s preference for Starburst.
In an exposé published Monday, the left-leaning newspaper shed groundbreaking new light on Trump’s preference for cherry and strawberry flavored Starburst candies; the chewy, square-shaped sweets.
“President Trump and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) were alone in the presidential suite on Air Force One, flying east toward Washington in early October, when the president reached for a handful of Starbursts, the fruit-flavored, box-shaped chewy candies,” writes the Post.
“But instead of unwrapping all the treats, the president was careful to pluck out and eat two flavors: cherry and strawberry,” the author adds.
“A bit later, a couple of his aides saw me with those colors and told me, ‘Those are the president’s favorites,’” McCarthy told the paper.
Even liberal reporters on social media were quick to point out the absurdity of the Post’s article, saying, “This Starburst thing doesn’t seem that crazy. People have favorite Starburst flavors. http://wapo.st/2mFLcbQ .”
