Donald Trump is no stuffed-shirt politician. His willingness to fight back against a corrupt federal government, and the left-leaning press has endeared him to his fan base.
While CNN has been doing a fine job of destroying their own credibility, President Trump kicked off the Independence Day weekend with some fireworks of his own. The president sent out a revised video of his appearance at Wrestlemania XXII in 2007. In the original video, he was bodyslamming WWE President, Vince McMahon.
However, in the latest edited version, (courtesy of Trump supporters), McMahon’s face has been replaced by the CNN logo. In the past month, the troubled network was forced to retract an erroneous story on Russia which prompted the resignation of three employees. In addition, Project Veritas has published a series of undercover videos showing various employees, including Van Jones, admitting the Russia stories are all about ratings.
CNN responded to the tweet, insisting it was evidence that President Trump was inciting violence against the media. “It is a sad day when the President of the United States encourages violence against reporters,” CNN said. “Clearly, Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied when she said the President had never done so.
The network also touted that President Trump wasn’t doing what he was elected to do. “Instead of preparing for his overseas trip, his first meeting with Vladimir Putin, dealing with North Korea and working on his health care bill, he is instead involved in juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office,” the statement continued. “We will keep doing our jobs. He should start doing his.”
If publishing fake stories and bashing the president every day is what CNN calls “doing their job,” then it’s no wonder they are the least trusted news network in media history. It also explains why they think President Trump isn’t doing his job. After all, they were used to having someone in the Oval office that lied as easily as they do.
