There will be no armistice in the ugly feud between President Donald Trump and CNN this holiday season. The cable news network announced late Tuesday night that it will boycott the White House’s annual Christmas party for members of the media, news that will come as an early Christmas gift for Trump and his staff.
“In light of the President’s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests,” CNN said in a statement.
In keeping with the president’s petty attacks on CNN and other liberal media outlets, Trump’s press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders rejoiced that the boycott was “finally, good news from CNN.”
There’s also this from Newsweek:
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a “serial congenital liar” who buries the American people “in an avalanche of horse shit” and must know in her soul that what she’s doing is wrong, a GOP strategist and media consultant said Monday night.
Rick Wilson piled on Sanders after the White House mouthpiece defended Trump’s use of the insult “Pocahontas” during a White House reception honoring the Navajo code talkers, a group of Native American World War II heroes. Sanders said the term was “not a racial slur,” even though Native Americans absolutely see it as one.
