As an amateur historian, I can say with all confidence that there has never been a time where any president ever said anything bad against a member of the media.
There is a clause in the US Constitution that actually says that people can insult the president and he can't do sh!t about it.
Thomas Jefferson wanted to have it say "Crap", but Larry Finklestein, a proofreader back in 1776, actually put "sh!t" in instead because he had a bad date the night before and was angry that she didn't put out.
"Putting out", in 1776 meant holding hands after the 10th date and she thought that might be moving too fast.
Getting a look at "side boob" didn't happen until the 4th year of marriage.

Is the press allowed to print lies and make stuff up ? Is lieing covered under the freedom of the press?

Unless Trump has passed a law "respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances," I'm not sure which bit of the Constitution he is meant to be violating.

If the President engages in this type of behavior, striking back 10 times as hard, then he violates his Oath of Office to defend and protect the Constitution which includes the right of the press to criticize and call the President every name in the book and to even call his sanity into question .
The President, once more, has provided his to opponents one more point, just more grounds to be included in a draft of Articles of Impeachment.
It isn't "hard hitting" reporting, it's pure libel/slander. Libel is grounds for retaliation by Trump.
OF course the left will defend their libel, slander under the umbrella of the first amendment, but America is getting quite sick of this ploy.
I would like to see Trump drop a 20,000 bomb on CNN headquarters as enemies of the state. Just like Hillary wanted to do to Russian HQ for the hacking they never did do.
Who deserves it more? Russia for doing nothing? Or CNN for continually damaging America with faked and manufactured propaganda? I don't really want to see anyone bombed, just making a point, like Hillary made, except it is fitting the actual criminals here, not the false target she insinuated..
