They say “what goes around comes around,” and CNN just found that out the hard way. After bashing Donald Trump for over a year now, both during his campaign and presidency, the leftist news network is not too happy these days – and it’s all because of the perfectly brutal revenge that Trump finally got on them.
Respect is a two-way street; in order to get it, you usually have to give it. With that being said, the mainstream media has shown Trump no respect, attacking him at virtually every turn over the past year instead.
Unfortunately for them, now that the one thing they never thought would happen has happened, they need the man they’ve been so rude to for so long. Of course, now that he wants to treat them the same way they’ve been treating him, they’re crying foul.
However, things are only going to continue to get worse for CNN in particular as Trump just got his brutal revenge. According to reports, “In what appears to be a power play by the Trump administration, the White House has reportedly chosen not to allow their surrogates or officials to appear on CNN.”
In short, Trump isn’t allowing anyone on his team to talk to the leftist propaganda network – and rightfully so. Although the White House hasn’t officially announced that this is what they’re doing, they aren’t really holding anything back from the public except an outright admittance of the fact.
White House officials are still answering questions from CNN during daily press briefings, and White House press secretary Sean Spicer rejected the claim that CNN was being denied access to surrogates. While speaking at George Washington University Monday evening, Spicer was asked if the White House was shutting CNN down. Spicer responded that while there was no specific intention to ban CNN, he did not feel he should have to waste time speaking to media outlets who don’t want to report truthfully.
“I’m not going to sit around and engage with people who have no desire to actually get something right,” Spicer said. [Source: The Blaze]
CNN better hope that the things they did during Trump’s campaign year were worth it because their actions come with consequences. Not only did Hillary Clinton lose the election, but now they’re being shunned from the news world.
Even better yet, as Trump shoves them out the door, he’s exposing them to be nothing more than a political tool that spews fake news to promote an agenda. Although some may feel bad that they’re being shut out, what good is having a platform when your credibility is shot anyways? Stick a fork in CNN. Trump just cooked that goose – and it’s done.
