Dan Rather made a complete fool of himself for this attack on Trump
President Trump is waging a war on the fake news media.
He tweeted that the fake news media is the “Enemy of the People.”
But Dan Rather just went on the attack and made himself look like a complete fool.
Dan Rather is considered by many as the father of fake news.
In 2004 during the heat of President Bush’s reelection campaign, Rather used his national broadcast to report on memos that called President Bush’s Texas Air National Guard service into question.
The memos were fake and Rather was eventually forced to resign in disgrace.
He is the least-qualified person to attack President Trump for calling out fake news, but he did so anyway, tweeting:
Whenever I see President Trump rail against "Fake News" or call us the "enemy of the people" I think "you can't handle the truth." You may not like it, but the press is protected by the Constitution (you know that document you swore to preserve, protect, and defend?)

Rather seems to be completely ignorant of the fact that he has been caught red-handed reporting fake news to push his bias on the American people.
Even the late Andy Rooney, former 60 Minutes contributor, called Rather “Transparently liberal.”
Now he is hocking his recently-published memoir, “What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism.”
It’s nothing more than virtue signaling to attack President Trump.
Rather is totally transparent and the embodiment of President Trump’s most recent tweet:
The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it’s TRUE. I am providing a great service by explaining this to the American People. They purposely cause great division & distrust. They can also cause War! They are very dangerous & sick!
