Priebus: ‘You Should Take’ Trump’s Enemy Tweet ‘Seriously’

‘We spend “48 hours” on bogus stories and the American people suffer’

RUSH EXCERPT:

DICKERSON: "He recently tweeted that the press was the enemy of the American people. Should we take that seriously from him?" 
PRIEBUS: "Well, I think you should take it seriously. I think the problem we have got is that we are talking about bogus stories like the one in “The New York Times” that we have had constant contact with Russian officials, the next day the “Wall Street journal” had a story that the Intel community was not giving the president a full intelligence briefing, both stories grossly inaccurate, overstated, over blown, and it is total garbage, so we spend “48 hours” on bogus stories and the American people suffer. So I do think it is a problem and I think that the media needs to, in some cases forks, not every case, John, but in some cases really needs to get its act together."
