CNN’s Chris Cillizza found himself in hot-water Monday after he mocked President Trump’s heartwarming message to a mother who recently lost her son to the national opioid crisis; bizarrely trashing Trump for watching too much television.
The cable news network anchor took a swipe at the Commander-in-Chief after a recent segment on Fox News that featured Sue Kruczek, a mother who sent a letter to the President following her son’s passing from an opioid overdose.
“Thank you to Sue Kruczek, who lost her wonderful and talented son Nick to the Opioid scourge, for your kind words while on @foxandfriends. We are fighting this terrible epidemic hard – Nick will not have died in vain!” tweeted the President.

Cillizza was apparently unmoved by the President’s touching tribute, blasting Trump’s television habits after he commented on Kruczek’s family tragedy.
“‘But I don’t get to watch much television. Primarily because of documents.’ — Donald Trump,” he viciously posted.

ACOSTA GOES GLOBAL: The CNN Reporter HUMILIATES HIMSELF at International Conference
CNN’s senior White House correspondent took his anti-Trump road show onto the international stage Thursday, following the Commander-in-Chief to Europe to harass the President over his “America First” foreign policy.
The President was speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week, touting his “America First” agenda while speaking with foreign leaders and business executives from the world’s largest corporations.
After Trump says of Davos “It’s been really successful…” I asked him how he can be America First if he’s rubbing elbows with big wigs. He did not respond. Video from @ElizLanders pic.twitter.com/jPWWRfTLir

“We want great prosperity, and we want great peace, and that really is the message. A lot of people are coming back to the United States for jobs, we’re seeing tremendous investment and today’s been a very exciting day,” said Trump while exiting the high-level meetings.
Acosta pounced within seconds, nonsensically asking Trump how he plans to advance his agenda while speaking with foreign leaders.
“Mr. President, can you be ‘America First’ but also be rubbing elbows with all these big wigs?” shouted Acosta as the President walked away.
CNN DENIED: President Trump Deploys GIANT TRUCK to Cut-Off CNN Crew
A mysterious white truck appeared out of nowhere and effectively blocked CNN reporters from filming President Trump while golfing during his holiday visit to Mar-a-Lago on Thursday; cutting-off the camera crew from hounding the Commander-in-Chief while relaxing on the links.
CNN’s Don Lemon commented on the truck’s surprise appearance while speaking with the network’s White House correspondent, asking the reporter to explain the mysterious incident.
“Our job down here is to cover the President and to tell our viewers what he’s doing on a daily basis […] There’s a break in the hedges,” said the journalist.
“Today, a big white box truck parked in front of the hedges trying to obscure our shot of President Trump golfing,” he added. “This may seem trivial, but it’s important to get video of the President as he does things on a daily basis.”
