Trump Dished Out Fake News Awards. Twitter Dished Them Right Back At Him.

That didn’t get the reaction he was hoping for.

President Donald Trump's "fake news" awards didn't get off to a great start on Wednesday when they crashed the GOP's servers.

The Washington Post earlier this month reported that Trump has made more than 2,000 false or misleading claims in his first 355 days in office.

Others mockingly wished to win the awards themselves or cracked jokes.

And still others called Trump the "#FakePresident."

Here is some of that reaction:
