BREAKING: CNN Is Boycotting Christmas… SERIOUSLY- Look What They Just Announced


The war between CNN — which has affectionately been dubbed “Fake News” by the current administration — and President Trump continues to rage on, this time the media giant is taking a big shot of their own.

They have decided to boycott the White House Christmas party, a move that, according to Fox News, has a whole lot to do with their tiff with the current occupants of the Oval Office.


Seems a bit childish, doesn’t it? Highly unlikely such a move will mean anything to Trump who has made it clear he’s not a fan of the organization to begin with.

Here’s what a CNN spokesperson told Politico:


“CNN will not be attending this year’s White House Christmas party. In light of the president’s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests. We will send a White House reporting team to the event, and report on it if news warrants.”

The party is to be held on Friday, December 1, at 2 p.m. and is typically an event where reporters get to mingle and connect with varying members of the current administration, but with all the tension between Trump and CNN, it seems there’s no love lost between these folks and the White House.


Press Secretary Sarah Sanders wasn’t the slightest bit bothered by the fact CNN wouldn’t be in attendance at the party.

News of CNN’s plans to boycott the event was greeted positively by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. “Christmas comes early,” she tweeted. “Finally good news from @CNN.”

Earlier this month, the president was on a trip to Asia when he let his true feelings for the news network be known on Twitter after being forced to watch it’s programming, saying the experience reminded him of why he dislikes the channel.

“While in the Philippines I was forced to watch @CNN, which I have not done in months, and again realized how bad, and FAKE, it is,” the president wrote. “Loser!”

It doesn’t end there. Trump never misses an opportunity to take a shot at CNN, letting the punches fly in this gem from Monday:

“We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me). They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!”

What really takes the taco is how CNN complained that Trump’s tweet was “dangerous” as it encouraged violence against reporters operating in countries hostile to journalists.

The bottom line is, if CNN spent more time actually doing their job, reporting the facts in a well balanced manner, they wouldn’t be getting hammered so much and would likely have higher ratings.

The purpose of a free press is to equip citizens with the information they need to make well informed decisions, not shove an agenda down their throats.
