In recent months, Donald Trump has been making more and more appearances. With the success of his “TRUTH Social” app, he has once again become a major influence in the nation’s conversation. And the liberal media has no control over it. This Save America PAC has been hosting his legendary rallies, once again.
And, during such monumental midterm elections, Trump’s endorsement has been successful 133 times to only 10 misses. He continues to use his considerable influence and skills of persuasion to help America-first candidates win big this November. He was in Illinois, in support of Rep. Mary Miller’s re-election campaign. During his raucous speech, he gave the “fake news” a new name.
Former President Donald Trump said the new name for the “Fake News” media would be “Corrupt News” at a rally in Mendon, Illinois, on Saturday evening.
Trump was talking about how he dubbed the January 6 Select Committee the “unselect committee” when he introduced his new nickname for the corporate press.
“Unselect Committee. Do you like that name? The unselect. I came up with that one,” Trump said. “Of course every time I say that they say, ‘no, actually 100 years ago, somebody else came up with that term.’ I think I came up with it.”
Trump said the “Fake News” moniker is “not strong enough” to describe the media today.
“And Fake news is another one right? That was a good one,” Trump added. “That’s not strong enough, though. It’s more than fake news. It’s corrupt news.”

It seems like, to 45, the term “fake news” isn’t strong enough to convey just how poorly our MSM is performing. For Trump, the term “corrupt news” is more appropriate, for a media industry that blatantly lies to its viewers, denies facts and reality, and holds the water for a dirty, crooked political party.
Trump’s nicknames have this stubborn tendency to stick around. Whenever Trump gives a rival a nickname, the end up getting branded by it permanently. That is why we call them “Crooked Hillary, “Sleepy Joe,” and “Cryin’ Chuck.”
“Fake news” spread like wildfire in the aftermath of 2016. At the time, a liberal professor was trying to get Google to block news websites she deemed “fake,” meaning run by bots that published actually made-up stories. But included her in list were a few prominent, conservative-leaning news sites, including Breitbart.
Trump jumped on this story, flipping the term and calling liberal-biased news outlets “fake.” And it’s a term that has stuck with us ever since.
Will Trump’s re-christening of this dishonest, swamp-infested industry stick as well? It might if he keeps using it.
