President Donald Trump came up with a marvelous idea for those who lost money in the stock market drop after ABC News reported a false story about former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
ABC reporter Brian Ross reported that Trump ordered Flynn to contact the Russians while he was still a candidate for president.
But that was a blatant falsehood.
Instead, Trump had asked Flynn to contact the Russians when he was president-elect — plus the contact was about how to defeat ISIS.
Nevertheless, after the false story broke, the stock market fell 350 points.
Shortly after the damage was done, the news outlet corrected the story and issued an apology. The network also announced that it suspended Ross for four weeks without pay.
“We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error we made yesterday. The reporting conveyed by Brian Ross during the special report had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process,” a statement from ABC read.
Seems a like too little, too late, doesn’t it? What about those who lost money because ABC published fake news?
Trump had an idea.
On Sunday, the president tweeted that those who lost money in the stock market following the inaccurate report should consider suing the network.
“People who lost money when the Stock Market went down 350 points based on the False and Dishonest reporting of Brian Ross of @ABC News (he has been suspended), should consider hiring a lawyer and suing ABC for the damages this bad reporting has caused – many millions of dollars!” the president wrote.

If you lost money yesterday based on @ABC & @BrianRoss fake & malicious reporting, call a lawyer. Their actions were intentional malpractice & perfect class action lawsuit fodder. pic.twitter.com/l67Xp85seN

Let’s start the class action lawsuit now…if Trump can’t bring ABC to its knees, perhaps “We The People” can….and should! We’ll start with one…and then take down the rest of the “Fake News Networks”.

The mainstream media has been desperate to take down Trump, and ABC jumping the gun on this story proves it.
The network could be in deep trouble if Americans who lost money after their shoddy reporting decided to follow through on the president’s suggestion.
It would serve them right.
