CNN: Trump Has ‘Army of Trolls’ Defending Anything He Does
CNN’s Jake Tapper tries to delegitimize pro Trump outlets
CNN’s Jake Tapper said on “The Lead” that President Donald Trump has “an army of trolls” who defend his every word.
"It’s been pointed out that Nixon had a better legal apparatus to defend him and Bill Clinton as well during their impeachments than President Trump has.”
“But President Trump has something that Nixon didn’t have. He has Fox News."
"He has an army of trolls. He has sites, websites that will defend anything he says or does, and that could very well come into play. They are already coming to his defense.”
Tapper seemingly attempted to belittle any news sources which have a counter-narrative to the establishment media.
But CNN failed to focus on the fact that House Intelligence Committee Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff read out fabricated quotes from the president's phone call with the Ukrainian leader.
Anti-Trump California Democrat Schiff read a portion of a transcript from the now-infamous telephone conversation between President Donald Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.
In July, Neon Nettle reported that CNN's ratings plummeted even further than in 2018.
While Fox News averaged 1.3 million viewers in the second quarter ratings for cable shows, CNN saw well below half of that with 541,000 total viewers.
The gap in primetime was even more pronounced, with Fox News as number one and CNN in 15th place, averaging 761,000 viewers to Fox’s 2.4 million.
According to Forbes, CNN’s second-quarter viewership average was 18 percent lower than in 2018.
Trump tweeted at the time:
“Wow, @CNN RATINGS HAVE CRASHED. LOST ALL CREDIBILITY!”
