The sanctimonious liberals running CNN got their proper comeuppance after Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to point out that the anti-Trump network refused to run an ad from his father’s campaign calling on the invading migrant caravan marching on the southern border to be stopped.
“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. Remember this on Tuesday,” tweeted Trump Jr.

CNN justified its actions in a response to the tweet, declaring the Trump ad “racist” — the network inexplicably continues to openly engage in its feud with the president.
Thew network tweeted: “CNN has made it abundantly clear in its editorial coverage that this ad is racist. When presented with an opportunity to be paid to take a version of this ad, we declined. Those are the facts.”

All of which prompted Katrina Pierson, the former national spokesperson for the 2016 Trump presidential campaign, to blow the network out of the water.
Using CNN’s resident racists Don Lemon and Marc Lamont Hill, the former Trump aide called the liberal network out for its hypocrisy.
“.@CNN employs openly racist @DonLemon, who thinks we need to “start doing something” about white men,” Pierson tweeted. “You employ @marclamonthill, who defends his friendship with noted anti-Semite @LouisFarrakhan.
“The only racists I see are the executives at @CNN who continue to employ bigots.”

But this was just the beginning of the shellacking CNN set itself up for — and they wonder why their ratings are embarrassingly low?
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter, beginning with the most brutal:
You wouldn’t know a fact if it bit you in the ass.

Im latin american, and this add might be innacurate, exagerated, not factually correct, etc. But IS NOT racist.
Not everything that you don’t like is racist. And the fact that you rejected the add on that basis shows, once again, that you’re not a news network, but propaganda.

People have an innate desire to flock to the truth. Viewers seem to be finding @CNN to be un-flocking-believable these days, based on ratings. They’re getting beat by many small cable channels, some too small for my cable provider to deliver. That should tell you something.

And yet you have hosts and guests making continuous rascists and disparaging comments. Good luck with viewership after this race. You have definitetly shown you are even less reliable than @msnbc. That’s a hard feat to achieve.

Spin it anyway you want but that ad is truthful and factual. We’ve all seen from WikiLeaks how CNN coordinates their coverage to favor Democrats. To say that their decision to not air this ad is anything other than political is an obvious lie. And THOSE are the facts. ?

. C’mon #CNN you are as biased as you can get. Plus you all got your Journalism degrees via mail order. What a joke!

A CNN contributor said, "Kanye West is what happens when negroes don't read." When presented with an opportunity to condemn that remark, you declined. Those are the facts. ? https://t.co/lLlOwYPbwh

"The biggest terror threat in this country is white men." – Don Lemon ? https://t.co/6ZDR5vDeBW

No, that's an opinion, but y'all are so goddamn biased you can't see the difference
Btw, would love to hear what you call Don Lemon saying white men are the biggest terror threat to the country ? https://t.co/AEBGRfLVOp
