BUSTED: President Trump Calls out CNN LIE [VIDEO]
CNN fabricated news about a second Trump meeting with Putin.
The media network lied about a supposed second meeting between President Trump and Putin. And in its journalistic malfeasance, they now attempt to cover it up.
But in quintessential Trump, the president rightfully slammed CNN on Twitter.
“Fake News story of secret dinner with Putin is “sick.” All G 20 leaders, and spouses, were invited by the Chancellor of Germany,” the president tweeted. “Press knew!”

President Trump followed this tweet with a second, adding
“The Fake News is becoming more and more dishonest! Even a dinner arranged for top 20 leaders in Germany is made to look sinister!”
CNN reported that a White House official confirmed the meeting. Further, CNN claimed the meeting to be nearly an hour-long meeting and came after a dinner hosted by German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the G20 economic summit on July 7.
As the president’s tweet indicates, that meeting did not occur.
However, CNN ran with the unsubstantiated story, and even added more intrigue.
According to them, only a Russian translator was present, ergo President Trump didn’t have his translator. Because how could Trump function without a translator? If something got lost in translation, we could end up in global nuclear war!
CNN then implies the White House defended the meeting. According to them, the White House issued a statement that read, “It is not merely perfectly normal, it is part of a president’s duties, to interact with world leaders.”
I went to the link and could find no statement. Even if they had issued such a statement, it would not have necessarily been referring to the “fake news” meeting contrived by CNN.
And if that wasn’t enough, CNN’s political commentator, David Gergen declared to Anderson Cooper that the meeting (that never occurred) just “arouses more suspicion” about the “obsession” the president has with Russians.
“The White House is saying that it is not merely perfectly normal,” said Cooper, “it is part of a president’s duties to interact with world leaders, adding that it was ‘just a brief conversation at the end of a dinner.’ I mean if it was an hour long as it’s being reported, that doesn’t seem like a brief conversation. And there’s no official government record, and they wouldn’t even mention it.”
“It is the president’s duty to circulate and to meet foreign leaders in an informal way,” Gergen said. “But it’s highly inappropriate for a president to sit down in a way Donald Trump did with Putin.
If anybody has demonstrated an obsession with the Russians, it’s CNN.
Here is another segment on CNN where they discuss their “fake news” meeting that never occurred between Presidents Trump and Putin.
Charles Blow bloviates about how the Trump administration releases information in drips and drabs, exposing the hypocrisy of the Left with each word.
The Trump administration has been an open book, and not necessarily by choice. Leaks abound, thus this administration has a right to release information carefully.
What the Trump administration doesn’t need is the fake news networks lying constantly about its activities.
CNN again has been caught. Yet they wonder why people call them fake news.
Remember when an anchor walked of the set, because one of his guests declared the story of his segment “fake news?” The network is now very sensitive to the term, yet they do nothing to change it. Like reporting the truth.
