White House, CNN Engage In War Of Words Over Explosives Packages

Asked whether the president "bears any responsibility" for the wave of attacks, given his accusations that the media is "the enemy of the people", Sanders claimed falsely that the president has "condemned violence in all forms... since day one". "So if you want me to say he's a liar, I'm happy to say he's a liar", Scaramucci said.

This comes on the heels of his appearance on NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday, where Scaramucci said that he doesn't believe Kelly personally likes President Donald Trump and that he throws "hissy fits". "But he's doing it intentionally to incite certain people which would include left-leaning journalists and most of the left-leaning politicians".

Sanders was speaking with reporters outside the White House just hours after CNN's NY offices were evacuated Wednesday.

But Trump rebuked mainstream media outlets on Twitter Thursday and urged them to adhere to a higher standard of reporting in such a divisive political climate.

The majority have died during protests, while smaller numbers have been killed by airstrikes and tank fire. The fresh violence could also scupper hopes of a deal to end the months of increasing tensions.

Just like an alcoholic's addiction for alcohol is what defines him as an individual, a liar's penchant for bending and twisting the truth is what defines his personality. "It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description".

Sanders also responded to former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan who demanded that the president "act presidential" after the attacks. "Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!" "Look in the mirror". "Your inflammatory rhetoric, insults, lies, & encouragement of physical violence are disgraceful".

Trump has spent much of the last two weeks stoking fear about a migrant caravan that's making its way north to the U.S. -Mexico border but is still several hundred miles away in southern Mexico. And, a similar package arrived at the home of Democratic megadonor George Soros earlier this week. Local members of the media says they've noticed more hostility from the public since Trump began his attacks on 'fake news.' Trade groups are spreading safety tips because of the incidents. "A Washington Post columnist said I deserve a lifetime of harassment. That's a bunch of malarkey, and we all know that".
