President Trump says CNN’s story is a ‘total lie’ misrepresenting John Kelly’s position on NFL fight

Ah, CNN and their ‘anonymous sources.’

The supposedly reputable news agency can use them to literally put out any news they want, and they don’t have to reveal how they got the ‘information.’

No wonder President Trump has stuck the network with the “Fake News” label, one which continued to apply as CNN reported yet another controversial story citing two “unnamed administration officials” (of course they are) who said that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly “was not pleased with the fight that erupted over the weekend” between President Trump and the America-hating, knee-taking snowflakes at the NFL.

Except, the report itself included an actual interview with Kelly in which the former Marine general, and gold star father, said, “I believe every American, when the national anthem is played, should cover their hearts and think about all the men and women who have been maimed and killed. Every American should stand up and think for three lousy minutes.”

Wow, CNN. Sounds like Kelly was REALLY upset at President Trump for, you know, agreeing with him.

The president noticed the discrepancy also and was quick to Tweet it out on Monday.

Did Megyn Kelly redeem herself with debut of TODAY?

From the report:

Kelly declined to talk about the President’s decision to wade into the issue. White House officials say they believe this will blow over, but did not know how long the President would keep it alive.

Two distinct issues are driving the national debate: Believing players should stand during National Anthem and the question of whether it’s wise for a president to make issue of it.

CNN’s PR people responded with this tweet:

If Kelly did disagree with Trump’s handling of the issue, it was unclear as to why, especially since Kelly clearly and vehemently agrees with his boss.

Why indeed?
