Don Jr. blasts CNN for not running dad’s new ad. Network tries to hit back, but Trumps get last laugh

President Donald Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. briefly beefed with CNN on Saturday over the network’s decision to not run one of his father’s recent campaign ads about illegal immigration.

Seen below, the ad depicted convicted cop killer Luis Bracamontes, an illegal immigrant who smirked in court after being sentenced to death earlier this year for the 2014 murders of two Sacramento cops.

Featured alongside Bracamontes were snapshots and video footage of the incoming caravan of migrants, illegal immigrants, gang members and criminals headed to the U.S. southern border.

“CNN refused to run this ad… I guess they only run fake news and won’t talk about real threats that don’t suit their agenda. Enjoy,” Trump Jr. tweeted Saturday morning around 7:41 am.

“Remember this on Tuesday,” he added, alluding to the generally accepted belief that CNN is an arm of the Democrat Party, meaning voting against Democrats is equivalent to voting against CNN.


CNN responded three hours later by accusing the ad of being racist.


A number of Twitter users responded to the network’s tweet by arguing that outlining the risks inherent in allowing an unscreened mob of foreigners to simply waltz across the border is not racist:

Several also highlighted the racist rhetoric of the network’s own left-wing commentators, including far-leftist Don Lemon. Earlier in the week Lemon had smeared all “white men,” telling his audience that they pose the “biggest terror threat” in America.


But there’s a catch: It turns out CNN’s been airing the president’s ad the whole time.

“In the two days since the president posted the ad, CNN aired the clip with its audio at least 19 different times, totaling more than seven minutes of free airtime for the video between the network’s normal programming and reruns,” The Daily Beast reported.

Instead of airing the clips during commercial breaks, the network wound up airing them during segments about the president’s alleged “racism.”

Look at the response below:

It seems like the president and his son will get to have the last laugh.
