President Donald Trump lashed out at the national media in a string of tweets on Sunday, slamming both a New York Times report about his work habits and the overall news coverage of the Russia investigation.
"I work from early in the morning until late at night, haven't left the White House in many months (except to launch Hospital Ship Comfort) ... and then I read a phony story in the failing @nytimes about my work schedule and eating habits, written by a third rate reporter who knows nothing about me," the president wrote.
Trump continued in another tweet, "The people that know me and know the history of our Country say that I am the hardest working President in history. I don't know about that, but I am a hard worker and have probably gotten more done in the first 3 1/2 years than any President in history."
Trump also turned his attention to the media's reporting during the Russia investigation, writing this in a tweet that was taken down a short time later: "When will all of the 'reporters' who have received Noble Prizes for their work on Russia, Russia, Russia, only to have been proven totally wrong (and, in fact, it was the other side who committed the crimes), be turning back their cherished 'Nobles.'"
As The Hill pointed out, Trumps's tweets on the Russia investigation were mocked for his repeated misspelling of "Nobel" and the fact that there is no Nobel Prize for journalism.
If Trump was referencing journalism's Pulitzer Prize, the two Trump-related stories that won the award last year were not about the Russia probe.
