On Monday, former President Donald Trump replied to the Washington Post making several massive corrections to its story accusing Trump of rigging the Georgia elections and calling the Post’s allegations a “joke.”
The damned quotes from an unnamed “source” that the Washington Post is now admitting that Trump didn’t do them were used by the Democrats in his second impeachment trial.
President Trump releases statement on @washingtonpost:
“While I appreciate the Washington Post’s correction that instantly makes the Georgia witch hunt a non-history, the original story was a hoax from the start.”

Washington Post admits damn quotes were wrong
The Washington Post corrected its bombshell story, which originally claimed that Trump had pressured Georgia’s best polling officer, Frances Watson, to “find the scam” in his state’s election.
The Post also alleged that the then president allegedly told her she was “a national hero” if she found any disagreements.

The current audio of the call was released by the Wall Street Journal last week, which proved the Trump quotes were wrong.
The quotes were used during his second impeachment trial against Trump.
Obviously, this is an important fix and story. This is not a mere typo.
The Washington Post, citing quotes from an anonymous source, corrected its story on Monday.
Trump’s statement read: “The Washington Post has just issued a correction to the contents of the misreported phone call I had regarding election fraud in the Great State of Georgia.”
“While I appreciate the Washington Post’s correction that instantly makes the Georgia witch hunt a non-history, the original story was a hoax from the start,” Trump said.

Trump doesn’t pull punches
The former president also noted that media bias seems to be “one-way”.
Trump added, “You will find that media errors, omissions, mistakes and outright establishment lies always lean in one direction – against me and against Republicans.”
“In the meantime, stories that hurt Democrats or undermine their narratives are buried, ignored or delayed until they can do the slightest harm – for example, after an election is over,” Trump wrote.

Trump calls news agencies “political units”
Trump said coverage of the coronavirus vaccine was part of that trend.
Trump said, “Look no further than the negative coverage of the vaccine that preceded the election and the overdue celebration of the vaccine after the election is over.”
“A strong democracy requires a fair and honest press,” he continued. “This recent media travesty underscores that older media should be viewed as political entities – not as journalistic companies.”
Donald Trump then “thanked” the Post for updating their story.
“In any case, I thank the Washington Post for the correction,” wrote Trump.
