President Trump met with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban at the White House Monday afternoon; prompting a fierce backlash from CNN that labeled the European politician a “far-right leader” who was “iced out” by Barack Obama and George W. Bush.
“He’s rolled back democratic checks on his power, mused about creating a European ethnostate and erected a razor-wire fence to keep migrants out, angering the rest of the European Union. So why was Hungary’s far-right prime minister Viktor Orbán meeting with President Donald Trump in the Oval Office on Monday?” writes CNN.
“Orbán was largely iced out during the administrations of Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, both concerned about the steps he took to consolidate power and block independent media,” adds the news network.
“I know he’s a tough man but he’s a respected man,” Trump said during a joint press conference.
“We are proud to stand together with the United States on fighting against illegal immigration, on terrorism and to protect and help the Christian communities around the world,” said Orban during the briefing.

THIS IS CNN: Anchor Says Trump ‘MENTALLY UNFIT’ After North Korea Tweet
CNN host Brian Stelter viciously smeared President Trump on Tuesday, saying the Commander-in-Chief’s tough talk with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un demonstrates he’s “mentally unfit” to hold the office.
Stelter was speaking with colleague Anderson Cooper when he was asked to weigh-in on the President’s response to Kim’s New Year’s Day warning that he has a “nuclear button” on his desk and could strike the US at any moment.
“North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the ‘Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.’ Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!” Trump tweeted.

“If this were the leader of Germany or China or Brazil, what would we say?” asked Stelter. “How would we cover these tweets? We would say these are the messages from a person who is not well, from a leader who is not fit for office.”

THIS IS CNN: April Ryan Accuses Sarah Sanders of Starting a 'PHYSICAL FIGHT'
CNN White House correspondent April Ryan was still fuming after the daily press briefing Thursday; telling a network panel that Sarah Huckabee Sanders was trying to “start a physical fight” during their fiery exchange.
Ryan was speaking with Don Lemon when she claimed the Press Secretary took the briefing into “the gutter” when she told the reporter, “you don’t know much about me.”
“I guess I was her whipping post. But I’m not a whipping post. She’s 35 and I’m 50. I’ve been at the White House for 21 years to her one,” said Ryan. “I was not making this a personal statement to her… If she’s upset about that that’s fine.”
“What I will say to you, that for her to say, ‘You don’t know me,’ in certain quarters of this nation that starts a physical fight. I was very shocked. It was street, it was gutter,” she added. “There’s no room, there’s no place for that in the White House briefing room.”
