Rare moment of unity when CNN reporter gives props to Trump & Melania for heartfelt note to cancer-stricken friend


For all the animosity between President Donald Trump and CNN, one network reporter offered a refreshing and transparent change with a gesture of appreciation.

CNN White House reporter Betsy Klein took a moment to share a “personal note” on Twitter about a family friend battling brain cancer who was encouraged when she received a letter from the president and First Lady Melania Trump.

A “personal note for a gesture that doesn’t often make it onto WH twitter but should be recognized,” Klein tweeted Thursday, along with an image of the letter sent to a cancer-stricken friend named Lillie.

“Her mom says it brought her much joy after a very tough week,” Klein noted.

“We are so inspired by your strength and spirit as you take on cancer with uncommon courage,” the letter read. “You are in our heartfelt prayers.”

The president and first lady added, “Always remember that there are many people in your life who love you and support you,” and concluded with “We are all on Team Lillie!”

Klein’s tweet brought cheers from many on social media.

But it was not all positive feedback for Klein who unfortunately ended up with a Twitter feed filled with the left’s typical hatred for the president, even in a personal moment of someone’s struggle.

The ridiculous thread of negativity focused repeatedly on the Trumps’ signatures, as if that were the important part of the tweet.

Fortunately for Lillie, there were many responses to Klein’s tweet that not only wished her well but blasted the nasty commentators.
