CNN has been in hot water this week after they hunted down the creator of President Donald Trump’s now-infamous wrestling gif. Twitter users have accused CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski and his team of blackmailing Reddit user “HanA**holeSolo,” who allegedly created the gif.
CNN forced Mr. “Solo” to apologize for allegedly posting anti-Semitic messages before issuing a controversial threat, “CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.” However, this comment completely backfired, as the network was accused of extortion.
In the wake of CNN being exposed as the fake news network that it is, a hilarious clip has surfaced of CNN anchor Don Lemon being confronted about knowingly spreading these lies. Talking Points Memo reported that the clip above this story shows an enraged Lemon cutting off a guest after he claims CNN is reporting “fake news.”
Lemon was moderating a discussion about frequent trips away from the White House and the costs of them to taxpayers when Paris Dennard, a former staffer in the George W. Bush administration and now a political analyst and commentator, called the story “fake news”
“The President is not breaking any laws, and he’s not doing anything,” Dennard said.
“Fake news is when you put out a story to intentionally deceive someone and you know that it is wrong,” Lemon interjected. “This story that we’re doing right now is not to intentionally deceive anyone. We are simply talking about the cost to keep a President safe.”
“Please stop it with that stupid talking point, that it is a fake news story,” Lemon said. “If you don’t want to participate in the news stories on this network, then don’t come on and participate. But don’t call them fake because you don’t agree with them. Go on.”
“Don, this is a fake news story, in my opinion,” Dennard fired back, “because the underlying assumption is that— ”
“Okay, Paris, thank you very much everyone,” Lemon interrupted, ending the segment. “Thanks everyone, thanks for watching. Have a great weekend. Goodnight, all.”
How typical of a CNN host!
