President-elect Donald Trump went on another Twitter tirade, this time attacking CNN and its journalists who claimed his accusations of voter fraud were false.

“@CNN is so embarrassed by their total (100%) support of Hillary Clinton, and yet her loss in a landslide, that they don't know what to do,” Trump tweeted, along with tweets from a number of others panning his critics.

Instead of providing his critics with facts to expose any inaccuracies in their statement, he fired tweets at the network from a number of unverified accounts.

“what PROOF do u have DonaldTrump did not suffer from millions of FRAUD votes? Journalist? Do your job!” Trump tweeted at CNN’s Washington Correspondent Jeff Zeleny, quoting the account @HighonHillcrest, a faceless pro-Trump account.

Other questionable sources Trump used on his attack on Zeleny included @JoeBowman12, again an unidentifiable user with few followers. He also quoted a tweet from @Filibuster, who is described in his bio as being 16 years old.

The tweets came after Zeleny said on air that Trump was being a “sore winner” and had “zero-evidence” supporting his claim that he was the victim of voter fraud. Zeleny described the claims as “blatant and baseless.”

Zeleny responded to Trump on Twitter seeking “examples of voter fraud. Please send our way. Full-time journalist here still working.”
