The tables have turned…
On Sunday, President Donald Trump challenged ABC News to cover up
charges against Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire.
“ABC is as bad as the rest of them,” Trump shared his thought on Twitter. “Journalistic standards are nonexistent today.”
Trump released a clip of Fox News anchor Jesse Watters bashing ABC News and their “standards” after Project Veritas organizer James O’Keefe exposed a recording of journalist Amy Robach expressing her outrage at the network for not broadcasting her investigative work on Jeffrey Epstein three years ago.
“What the hell are ABC’s editorial standards?” Waters exclaimed the attorney Michael Avenatti announced uncorroborated claims against Justice Brett Kavanagh on his show Watters World, citing ABS News.
“The press is so dishonest that we no longer have Freedom of the Press!” Trump reiterated.

In an interview with Breitbart News Daily, White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley also mocked ABC News on Wednesday.
“For ABC to make the comment that it wasn’t up to our standards to put on television, I guess that doesn’t apply to Kavanaugh, I guess that doesn’t apply to Covington kids, I guess that doesn’t apply when you put up a video that and say ‘look at the shelling in Syria’ but it’s actually Kentucky,” Gidley boasted.
Gidley also pointed to the alleged ABC News Brian Ross bombshell on the Russia report that shifted the stock markets.
“You want to succeed, you try to take down a president, facts or reporting or news reporting be damned,” Gidley concluded.
