According to sources, the renowned publication -The New York Times- is going to run an ad during Sunday night’s Academy Awards.
While it is important to note that the closest that the ad gets to mentioning the President is mentioning a statement made by Kellyanne Conway. Nonetheless, Trump is fuming.
During the ad, the words flash across the screen: “The truth is, alternative facts are lies.”
Conway used the term “alternative facts” on a number of occasions to defend some of the Trump administration’s most blatant lies.
Again, Trump is never mentioned in the ad, yet the President chose to respond to the ad in true Trump fashion.
In fact, Trump tweeted: “For first time the failing New York Times will take an ad (a bad one) to help save its failing reputation. Try reporting accurately & fairly!”
For first time the failing @nytimes will take an ad (a bad one) to help save its failing reputation. Try reporting accurately & fairly!

However, according to Google, The Times last ran brand focused advertising about a ten years ago.
Maybe Trump should try consulting Google before he tweets?
However, it is clearly evident that Trump just does not care about the facts or implications of what he’s saying. He just tweets without out thinking, which makes him impulsive and dangerous.
