On Jan, 11th many headlines in the media read, ‘Trump Calls CNN ‘Fake News’. It happened at his first press conference in months as he shouted, “Your organization is terrible,” at correspondent Jim Acosta. “I am not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”
He then called on Breitbart New’s Washington editor, Matt Boyle.
Gary Trudeau’s comic strip Doonesburys 12/18/16 edition seemed to predict that exchange.
The Twitter account StuffJournalistsLike first noticed it and shared it on the same day as Trump’s press conference.
Was this a prophecy? No, but it does show that if someone pays close attention and has a well-rounded knowledge of history and politics that nothing is really unpredictable. History does indeed repeat itself.
