Juan Williams: Donald Trump Is the 'Snowflake President'
Juan Williams said Thursday on "The Five" that Donald Trump is the "snowflake president," given all of his gripes with press coverage and allegedly unfair practices by bureaucrats in his administration.
Reacting to discussion on Trump's war of words with Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein -- who Trump said "thinks like a degenerate fool" -- and several media outlets, Williams said it shows a pattern of complaints by the president.
CNN is being torn apart from within based on their being caught in a major lie and refusing to admit the mistake. Sloppy @carlbernstein, a man who lives in the past and thinks like a degenerate fool, making up story after story, is being laughed at all over the country! Fake News

"He's going on about 'alternative facts' and 'fake news' -- Oh gee, I wonder what the FBI had to say when he picked up on this conservative report saying Hillary [Clinton's] emails were hacked by the Chinese," Williams said.
He said that after Trump publicly mentioned the report, the FBI came out and dismissed the claim. However, at least one Republican lawmaker, Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas, has stood by it.
Williams said that Trump continues to battle an FBI "run by a Republican" in former Chris Christie (R-N.J.) attorney Christopher Wray and a DOJ "run by a Republican" in former Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.).
What’s going on at @CNN is happening, to different degrees, at other networks - with @NBCNews being the worst. The good news is that Andy Lack(y) is about to be fired(?) for incompetence, and much worse. When Lester Holt got caught fudging my tape on Russia, they were hurt badly!

"Then he goes after Lester Holt," Williams remarked. "So, exactly who has trouble telling the truth? ... I think it's one guy named Donald Trump."
Williams said Trump is "the snowflake president."
"He's got a grievance, and he can't get beyond [it]... I want to give him a safe space," Williams said.
