Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
CNN got an epic smackdown when it requested press passes to cover the highly anticipated DeploraBall, a pro-Trump inauguration party held January 19 at the National Press Club.
MAGA 3X, the group that organized the DeploraBall, posted a blistering response to CNN, saying its press application was rejected because of the network’s history of biased news coverage.
MAGA 3X said it had issued press passes to other liberal media outlets like the New Yorker and New York magazine, but CNN didn’t deserve to cover the event.
DeploraBall co-organizer Jack Posobiec tweeted that BuzzFeed was also denied a press pass.
Trump loyalists and DeploraBall fans loved seeing “fake news” king CNN being put in its place.
it's about time CNN gets put in their place… outside with the protestors.

The DeploraBall recently made headlines after undercover videos by Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe showed a network of anti-Trump protesters planning to disrupt the black-tie event with acid attacks.
In one video, a man named Scott Green blithely discusses with fellow conspirators Colin Dunn and Luke Kuhn how they planned to release stink bombs in the HVAC system of the National Press Club, where the DeploraBall is being held.
The trio brags that the stink bombs would ruin partygoers’ clothing with their stench. The obnoxious smell would infect the entire building and eventually cause the DeploraBall to shut down.
“This stuff is very efficient. It’s very, very smelly,” Scott Green said. “It lasts a long time and a little bit of it goes a long way.”
Colin Dunn agreed: “If you get it into the HVAC system, it will get into the whole building.”
Luke Kuhn chimed in: “If you had a pint of butyric acid, I don’t care how big the building is, it’s closing.”
The DeploraBall has since alerted the FBI, and the matter is now under investigation.
