One of Donald Trump’s favorite punching bags is CNN. He even once tweeted a GIF image of himself punching a person with a CNN logo superimposed over the head – indicating that he’d like to enact violence against CNN’s reporters. Then there was the time he tweeted the “Trump Train” roaring over “CNN.” Now, he’s back at it – this time suggesting that “fake” CNN should be the ones representing America to the world, and that they are doing a bad job. Here is that tweet:
.@FoxNews is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly. The outside world does not see the truth from them!

Of course, it is beneath the dignity of most people to respond to a moronic buffoon like Trump under normal circumstances. However, he is currently squatting in the White House, and has his tiny orange hands on the levers of power – not to mention the nuclear codes – so they have to stoop to a Trumpian level when personally attacked. However, being, well, you know, FIT to be doing the job they are doing, the good folks at CNN Communications fired back at Trump, and their response is nothing short of perfect:
It’s not CNN’s job to represent the U.S to the world. That’s yours. Our job is to report the news. #FactsFirst 🍎

BOOM! Couldn’t have asked for a sicker burn than this. And they are right of course – especially the part about #FactsFirst. Trump has a problem with the truth, as we all well know. That’s what makes what the CNN Communications people replied so fabulous. It is the ultimate truth – something the likes of the pathological orange liar that is Donald Trump knows nothing about.
