Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

CNN Slams Trump, Says Him Going After Anchors are ‘Beneath the Dignity’ of the President

On Thursday, Time Magazine released parts of an interview conducted on Monday during which President Donald Trump called CNN’s Chris Cuomo a “chained lunatic” and his colleague Don Lemon “perhaps the dumbest person in broadcast.” There were others, but those were counted among the most inflammatory remarks.

CNN released a statement about Trump’s comments later on Thursday, and while brief, it did get the point across:

His comments are beneath the dignity of the office of the President.

President Donald Trump has combated against major media networks since his campaign, but out of all of them he has been the most combating with CNN, especially after the election. In January, shortly before his inauguration, Trump reused to take a question from CNN’s Jim Acosta at a press conference, lambasting him in the process.

“She’s trying to ask a question, don’t be rude,“ Trump said as he attempted to call on someone else. ”Don’t be rude. No, I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”

Trump has been insistent that he got CNN President Jeff Zucker his job, something that Zucker has denied. Then-candidate Trump even wrote Zucker a letter to that effect during the campaign:

Jeff —

Too bad you [at CNN] couldn’t be honest with how well I did in the debate. The dumbest thing I ever did was get you the job at CNN — you are the most disloyal person. Just remember, I always seem to find a way to get even.

Best wishes,

Donald J. Trump

Phil Kent, the former CEO of Turner Broadcasting who hired Zucker, issued a statement when the letter came to light publicly, saying that Trump’s recommendation “was not a factor in the decision to hire Jeff.”
