Crybaby CNN Hosts Whine About Trump Calling Them FAKE NEWS

By

It was actually the mainstream media that created the specter of “fake news.” Now that the scheme is backfiring on them, CNN and the others are throwing a childish fit.

President Trump especially has latched on to the term “fake news,” and his favorite target for it is none other than CNN.

The president was at it again late last week when CNN’s Chris Cuomo interviewed Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal.

Blumenthal is most widely known for lying about his “heroic” service in Vietnam (spoiler alert: he was NEVER IN VIETNAM!)

Trump wanted to know why CNN did not raise a point that speaks directly to Blumenthal’s credibility.

CNN fired back at the president, insisting that Cuomo did bring up Vietnam at the very beginning of the interview.

And that’s true. BUT, and this is a major BUT, Blumenthal skirted the question, and Cuomo failed to press the issue, despite how important it is.

That, folks, is not real journalism. That is CNN doing just enough to claim they asked all the important questions, without properly addressing the real issues.

In other words – FAKE NEWS!

Well, instead of learning from their mistakes, CNN got all weepy in hopes the American people would side with the media against the “bully” Trump.

Cuomo complained:

“‘Fake news’ is the worst thing that you can call a journalist. It’s like an ethnic disparagement. We all have these ugly words for people, and that’s the one for journalists.”

Now, that is beyond hypocritical.

Remember, it was the mainstream media like CNN that started this whole “fake news” craze to attack their conservative competition like Fox News.
