CNN Commentator Angela Rye on Donald Trump and “Fake News”
Jeannie Mai: Angela, you happen to work for CNN, what do you take of this comment regarding CNN being “fake news”?
Angela Rye: So I think that Donald Trump’s entire Twitter account is fake news.
[The Real audience cheers and claps.]
Angela: Um I don’t think that uh we should take his words too seriously. We should take them with a grain of salt. He has bullied reporters through out. We’ve seen him bully people from the moment he slid down that escalator. I shouldn’t say slid down. Because he glided down. He didn’t fall… although… Anyway, but um [Laughs.] I just think we’ve seen him do this kind of through out and there’s no surprises here. Donald Trump does not like news where it is bad for him, right? Anything is fake, if he doesn’t like it.

About The Real
THE REAL is a daily, one-hour Emmy® nominated talk show on Fox Television Stations and in national syndication (check local listings), with a rebroadcast on cable network BET. Led by bold, diverse and outspoken hosts – Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley — these women reflect the home audience and unapologetically say what women are actually thinking. Their unique perspectives are brought to life through their candid conversations about topics ranging from their own personal lives to the news of the day to beauty, fashion and relationships. Emmy® nominated for Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment in its second season, THE REAL is unlike other talk shows, since each of the hosts are admittedly a “work in progress,” and fearlessly invites the viewers into their lives. Their fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion have turned the traditional talk show on its head. Produced by Telepictures Productions and distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, The Real originates from Los Angeles. Rachel Miskowiec (Good Morning America, Katie, The Tyra Banks Show, Judge Hatchett, The Ricki Lake Show) is Executive Producer.
