It would probably be more accurate to say that Trump despises CNN with the fire of a thousand suns. Of course, this is because CNN reports facts, and often times, those facts don’t make Trump look all that great.
The rebuke against Trump went further than a simple tweet. Anderson Cooper, on Monday, said about Trump, “His assault against a free press, a free press that stands up to him, will not stop us or any other legitimate news organization”, going on to say that the journalists at CNN “can handle criticism, but we’ll damn sure call it out when it’s a lie.”
Western journalists could already be facing foreign people who are hostile to them, and every time Trump disparages the journalists, “It sends a message very clearly that even our own president is volubly and publicly disparaging us. It’s open season on journalists.”
Perhaps if Trump doesn’t like the way he is represented in the factual media, he should stop being such a raging abomination to our country and a disgrace to the office which he holds.
Facts are facts, and as long as Trump continues on his path of ignorance and divisiveness, those facts are going to be ugly.
