"A source says that Donald Trump is a disgusting, frightful human being". "They're very dishonest people". He also fell back on the old "they're suppressing my free speech by not letting me say very bad things about Jews" argument, and argued that the real problem with the world today is prejudice against white people.
"And they shouldn't use "sources", he said, adding they should be required to put the names of everyone to whom they speak into their reports.
Conservatives are ready for the main event at their annual gathering, and President Trump is not likely to disappoint a faithful already electrified by a shocking November triumph. Therefore, he said, he had the "right to criticize fake news".
Of course, that was only one of the many cringeworthy parts of Trump's speech. We'll see you again next year, and the year after that. "I love the commotion", he said. "I don't believe there was one or two people... they make up sources".
"There are some terribly dishonest people who do tremendous disservice to our country".
Trump said the building of a border wall along the southern US will start "very soon", and that its construction is "way, way, way ahead of schedule".
He explained that Trump and his supporters are fighting a four-front war against the establishment media, establishment Republicans, Democrats and the "snowflake brigade".
Cool, Donny - why don't you take the lead on that?
"I would have come previous year, but I was anxious I would have been too controversial", he said.
During his speech, he called his victory "a win for conservative values". "This is the kind of person that the country needs and we need it now".
In a speech Thursday night, Pence touted the Trump administration's plans to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, declaring "America's Obamacare nightmare is about to end".
CNN also condemned the move, tweeting: "This is an unacceptable development by the Trump White House". He had better be careful though - this dump on the media shtick may wear thin if he overuses it and even if Breitbart News - which could easily be called Bannon News - continues to only report Trump's triumphs.
Bannon participate in a Q&A with White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus moderated by Matt Schlapp, the chairman of the American Conservative Union, which organizes CPAC.
