CNN finally got to the bottom of the Scooby Doo mystery of whose white truck blocked them from reporting on Trump golfing at Mar-a-Lago over the Christmas break.

Did Trump use a nine-iron or wedge? Did the president fudge on his scorecard or play it straight? How about that last putt – did he nudge the ball towards the hole with his foot or hit it clean?
The world will never know.
One thing CNN does know, after reporting on it at least 23 times in the past week (while conveniently forgetting negative stories like Obama’s Iranian wheeling-and-dealing) is whose white truck blocked them from getting their money shot.
23: The number of times over the past day that CNN has mentioned the white box truck that obscured view of Trump golfing
0: For comparison, the number of times CNN has mentioned that Politico report on Obama admin’s quashing of Hezbollah investigation. https://t.co/M07SwXvBpT

Behold the heavy mouth breathing:
This comes after CNN repeatedly accused the White House of ordering the mystery truck to be parked obstructively in front of the network’s video crew. Its reportage conjured up a comical scene:
As the president completed another round at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida, a large white truck obscured nearby journalists — who were positioned on public property — from getting a shot of Trump on their cameras.
When CNN’s photojournalist moved his camera, the truck likewise moved, blocking the picture.
The cable news network received healthy mockery for its am-bush reportage, which many compared to stalking.
This entire clip is creepy. But hey, journalism in 2017, amirite? https://t.co/UtEI1m7x9i

Obama and Hezbollah? Nah
ISIS losing 98% of it’s territory and power? Not interested
Bernie Sanders admitting 90% of Americans get tax cuts? Shhhhh.
No, WE NEED TO TRACK DOWN THIS TRUCK THAT KEPT US FROM FILMING TRUMP LIKE WE WERE CREEPY STALKERS!!
Well done Noah. LOL

After getting roundly mocked for its pestering coverage on the golf course, CNN should have learned a harsh lesson.
President Trump is always watching.
