First Son Donald Trump, Jr. mocked the liberal media’s biased treatment of his father after NBC News admitted it had falsely claimed President Donald Trump had said that Turkey’s invasion of Syria “is not our problem.”

On Wednesday, NBC News tweeted a “correction” to the inaccurate claim it had previously headlined:

CORRECTION: A previous tweet misquoted President Trump saying Turkey's invasion into northern Syria “is not our problem.”

He said, “They have a problem at a border — it's not our border,” as well as “it’s not between Turkey and the US," according to White House transcript.

On Thursday, the president’s son replied to the tweet, feigning surprise at the NBC News misrepresentation of something his father had said:

“Shocking that we’ve never seen one of these fake news stories break in favor of @realDonaldTrump. Only against. It’s like the media is biased or something.”

NBC News also issued a correction at the bottom of its online story misquoting President Trump (https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/trump-says-turkey-s-incursion-syria-not-our-problem-calls-n1067391).
