Rather Than Unite Against Political Violence, Trump Attacks ‘Fake News’ Media Hours After CNN Pipe Bomb Mailings

Donald Trump blamed the “mainstream media fake news” for the “anger in our society” hours after White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders admonished CNN President Jeff Zucker for “attacking and dividing” by criticizing Trump’s attacks on the media. The exchange came in the wake of a series of suspicious pipe bomb devices were sent to CNN and prominent Democrats around the country.

Tweeted Trump: “A very big part of the Anger we see today in our society is caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media that I refer to as Fake News. It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description. Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!”

Trump’s attack came just hours after this tweet from Sanders: ‘. asked Americans “to come together and send one very clear, strong, unmistakable message that acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the USA” Yet you chose to attack and divide. America should unite against all political violence.’

Trump also attacked the New York Times, tweeting: “The so-called experts on Trump over at the New York Times wrote a long and boring article on my cellphone usage that is so incorrect I do not have time here to correct it. I only use Government Phones, and have only one seldom used government cell phone. Story is soooo wrong! … The New York Times has a new Fake Story that now the Russians and Chinese (glad they finally added China) are listening to all of my calls on cellphones. Except that I rarely use a cellphone, & when I do it’s government authorized. I like Hard Lines. Just more made up Fake News!”

Back to basics: Falling back in love with the roll neck

It’s at the top of our knit list.

From Steve McQueen and James Dean to Robert Redford and David Beckham, the roll neck has long been a classic that has served us well when it comes to our autumn/winter wardrobes. It has the appeal of a jumper with the added bonus of a scarf and yet a strangely unexplainable sex appeal that works throughout all ages. So it’s good news if you’re a fan of the humble roll neck, because the autumn season is here and with it returns our need for warmth and style rolled in to one… pardon the pun.

There are many ways that one can wear a roll neck: Cashmere and silk-blend styles are thin enough that they can replace your existing base layers and be worn beneath a button up shirt or even under another jumper, while thicker styles should be worn as a statement piece that can be rolled down or pulled over your chin to stay warm and stay chic.


When it comes to wearing a roll neck on a formal occasion there are two things to think about: your outfit and fabric. Fabric plays a big party in the dressing scenario for two reasons: A thicker knit will always make the outfit appear more casual and will also not allow you to layer under jackets or blazers and your outfit should be smart enough that you’re going sans shirt. This Raey sweater is a fine-cashmere so would look equally as chic worn alone with a black blazer as it would underneath a shirt.


When it comes to wearing a roll neck in the day you’ve got free reign over fabrics, silhouettes and prints. We’re loving this AMI Alexandre Mattiussi knit with dropped armholes and a big cosy roll neck. Wear it with some great selvedge denim or try some high waisted pants and biker boots for a more modern look.
