President Donald Trump is not too pleased with the mainstream media’s coverage of the exit of White House counsel Don McGahn.

McGahn’s departure was announced on Wednesday of this week.

And the president teased that he already had a replacement in mind on Thursday.

“I am very excited about the person who will be taking the place of Don McGahn as White House Counsel!” Trump tweeted on Thursday.

McGahn had been a leading figure in the administration’s relationship to the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump had nothing but positive words for McGahn when he departed his job.

“I liked Don, but he was NOT responsible for me not firing Bob Mueller or Jeff Sessions. So much Fake Reporting and Fake News!” he also tweeted.

Trump said McGahn was a “really good guy” who had done an “excellent job.”

After McGahn’s exit, Trump’s critics immediately began turning the wheels on the conspiracy theory bus.

A report from The New York Times claimed McGahn was fired due to pressure from Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and a key figure in the current administration.

The report claimed that the first daughter had convinced her father to drop McGahn after she heard the White House counsel had spent hours spilling his guts to Robert Mueller, the head of the special counsel investigation into Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election.

The report from The New York Times made its way across leftist circles.

And it was shared endlessly on social media.

Not surprisingly, President Trump was not too pleased with the attacks on both his daughter and son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

And he took to Twitter, as he so often does, to correct the report.

“The Rigged Russia Witch Hunt did not come into play, even a little bit, with respect to my decision on Don McGahn!” he wrote.

Trump also directly defended his daughter and son-in-law in another tweet, saying, “Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner had NOTHING to do with the so called “pushing out” of Don McGahn. The Fake News Media has it, purposely, so wrong! They love to portray chaos in the White House when they know that chaos doesn’t exist — just a ‘smooth running machine’ with changing parts!”

Others have also taken to social media to call out the report from The New York Times — and its reliance on anonymous sources.
