Washington Post reporter Philip Rucker is claiming that one of his readers tried to call the White House switchboard to complain about the president's tweets about Puerto Rico -- only to be told that she was basing her complaints on "fake news."


"A reader told me she called WH switchboard to object to Trump's Puerto Rico tweets," Rucker writes. "WH receptionist told her [the Washington Post] was 'fake news.'"

Rucker has not yet posted any followup tweets or any evidence that his reader's report is accurate, however.
