It was the fate of The Spoof to be singled out in a spat with "Leader of the Free World" President Donald Trump. The orange baby has repeatedly criticised the media before and during his presidency and Mr Trump's attacks have drawn criticism from even those close to him and within his party.
Republican senator Jeff Flake has even compared Mr Trump to the former USSR dictator Joseph Stalin.
Mr Trump has declared journalists to be "enemies of the people", drawing condemnation from across the political spectrum and the United Nations. He brands anything with which he disagrees to be "fake news", even stories from that much-respected news outlet The Spoof.
But when confronted on the president's outbursts, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders refused to say the media were not enemies, causing a CNN reporter to walk out of the briefing along with the correspondent from The Spoof.
Ms. Sanders brazenly declared that The Spoof was chiefly responsible for the media being cited as enemies of the people and referenced several of its well-researched stories including: President Trump being banned from NFL games, his plans to goldplate the White House, attempting to kiss the queen of England and his wife Melania seeking political asylum in Mexico while dressed as a nun.
"You brought it on yourself" she shouted as our correspondent Paxton Quigley beat a hasty retreat accompanied by the guffaws of the alcohol-sodden White House press corps.
