The anti-Trump hysteria at CNN reached a fever pitch Thursday morning, with the cable news network bizarrely suggesting Russian agents had infiltrated the National Prayer Breakfast; an annual event in the nation’s capital traditionally featuring a speech by the sitting President.
During its coverage of the low-key event, the media outlet quickly claimed that this year’s breakfast included a significantly larger delegation of Russian businessmen, religious authorities, and officials than in previous events.
“As many as 60 Russians are expected to attend the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, more than three times last year’s number, per Russian officials,” tweeted CNN.

“The spike in the number of Russians attending the event compared to last year comes amid multiple ongoing investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia as well as continued fallout from Russian interference in the 2016 election,” adds the Cable News Network.
CNN MELTDOWN: Don Lemon BLAMES TRUMP for DEATH THREATS
CNN anchor Don Lemon unloaded on President Trump Tuesday night, viciously blaming the Commander-in-Chief for death threats leveled at the cable news network; breathlessly claiming the suspect was inspired by Trump’s repeated references to “fake news.”
“This story hits close to home. A Michigan man has been arrested after he allegedly made numerous calls to CNN headquarters in Atlanta threatening to kill this network’s employees,” said Lemon.
“There’s nothing random about this. Nothing. This is what happens when the President of the United States -Donald Trump- repeatedly attacks members of the press simply for reporting facts he does not like,” he added.
“Mr. President, I’m going to speak directly to you. We are not the enemy. We are not trying to silence you. It’s the job of the free press to report the facts, to ask question, tough questions, ones you don’t like,” said the CNN anchor. “When you make that baseless and incendiary charge, be aware that people are listening to you, some very dangerous people.”
