When journalists report the news, that doesn’t mean it’s an attack on President Donald Trump, but that’s what White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused The Washington Post of doing on Sunday, only to get totally schooled on Twitter for it.

The Washington Post’s front page on Sunday featured the mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue over the weekend that left eleven people dead. As part of the story, the newspaper also reported on Trump’s critics, who have been slamming him in recent days for sowing hatred and division that has radicalized his supporters and incited them to commit violence.

Of course, Huckabee Sanders threw a hissy fit over it.

It should be pointed out that The Washington Post did not attack Trump. The paper merely quoted his critics, who are the ones actually attacking him. So, the good journalists at WaPo were actually just doing their jobs. Huckabee Sanders seems to be crying foul because the paper did not censor Trump’s critics.

Twitter, naturally, had a field day mocking her for not knowing how journalism works.

Even New York Times journalists Maggie Haberman and Peter Baker jumped to defend their rival newspaper.

Seriously, Trump and his minions need to stop attacking the media for telling the truth about him and his crooked administration. The press is not supposed to act as the president’s propaganda machine, but that’s exactly what Huckabee Sanders seems to expect. It’s pathetic.
