Donald Trump recently pulled an awesome prank on the liberal media. Reporters had been waiting to hear him speak, and were expecting him to talk about Barack Obama’s birthplace, and whether or not Trump believed Obama had been born in Hawaii. But reporters didn’t get the results they were expecting — and they reacted like toddlers.
Trump walked into the room, and he had a short statement to make: Hillary Clinton started the “birther” conspiracy theory in 2008, in order to further her presidential campaign in the primary against Barack Obama, and he had finished it. Trump closed by saying that he believed Obama was born in the United States, and closed by saying that he was going to get back to making America great again. And that was it. Trump finished speaking, and left the room without taking any questions… and the reporters were furious.
After Trump left the room, the members of the media assembled there began shouting and literally jumping on chairs:

Reporters tried to claim that Trump had tricked them somehow.

Press just shouted for about 5 minutes while Trump stood at the front of the room. He then walked out.

It’s clear that the reporters expected to hear Trump put out some kind of crazy tale about how Obama was born in Kenya. They wanted to hear him embarrass himself. Instead, they got coverage of a group of veterans endorsing Trump, followed by Trump himself putting the birther issue to rest. Suffice it to say, things did not go as planned. Trump refused to play their game, and they reacted like babies throwing temper tantrums. Do they really not understand how pathetic that is?
