President Donald Trump lashed out at Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel Saturday over a misleading photo of the crowd at a Trump event Friday that the reporter tweeted.

Trump’s tweet references a photo Weigel tweeted showing a mostly empty arena, sarcastically repeating Trump’s claim that the arena was “packed to the rafters.”

It appears that Trump is indeed correct, the stadium was packed when Trump spoke.

Weigel apologized almost immediately after, even admitting that it was “very fair” for Trump to call him out:

Trump has only increased tension with the media over the last week, tweeting Saturday morning that CNN made a “vicious and purposeful mistake” after they published a report with a major error about contacts between Donald Trump Jr. and Wikileaks.
