Step right up folks and take a gander because here we are in America's darkest timeline where a man who made money by dumping a bunch of his capital into legal fees to protect him from the inevitable lawsuits that occurred when he defaulted on several loans and business ideas, scammed the US government for tax money that provided his myriad bailouts and launched himself into the public by $#*!-talking on network television and pretending to be the smartest and richest guy in the room earned him the Presidency. And he isn't even doing much with the position either.
We have a President now who's biggest enemy isn't terrorists, or tackling hunger and creating jobs for citizens, but constantly opposing the journalists who simply report on what he is, and more importantly, isn't doing as commander-in-chief.
The feud between the Trump family and CNN isn't exactly new.
When President Trump isn't tweeting #fakenews at CNN, he's reposting shady GIFs and degrading images:
So when President Trump pledged $1 million to the Hurricane Harvey relief fund, I guess it was inevitable that Eric Trump, now executive VP of The Trump Organization, would take to social media to go after the network.
Eric Trump taunted CNN on Twitter:
The news outlet fired back at Eric Trump, with receipts and time stamps of how they had already reported Trump's pledge.
And his tweet backfired... hard:
Not surprisingly, Twitter users were quick to respond:
No one knows the Trump family's real reason was for tweeting CNN, but we know that Hurricane Harvey is nothing to joke about. Somehow it's difficult to believe that Trump and his family actually care about that, though, given their past history and all.
