Yes, Really: President Trump Gives CNN a Presidential Pat on The Back

We did NOT see this coming.

We’ve been saying for months that 2020 might be one of the strangest years on record, but perhaps no one quite expected this.

Donald Trump this week actually heaped praise on CNN – the infotainment network that has been the bane of his political existence for years now.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday praised CNN for consistently airing the Republican National Convention — after Republicans widely fired at Fox News for doing the opposite.

“Very appreciative that @CNN covered the vast majority of the Republican Convention last night. That was really good for CNN, while at the same time being good for our Country,” he tweeted. “Thank you!”

And while that may seem strange all on its own, the reason for the President’s benevolent compliment may have been an attempt to shame Fox News.

Fox News came under fire from conservatives after declining to air parts of the RNC on Monday, opting instead to show commentary from the network’s own hosts and guests.

Republicans complained that they were unable to watch the convention in full on the network and had to frantically surf between channels to hear all the speeches.

“Can’t believe I have to watch the convention on @CNN. Unbelievable,” declared Trump’s former campaign manager Brad Parscale on Twitter, tagging Fox News in the post.

With night 2 of the RNC coming on Tuesday, all eyes will be on Fox News to see if they’ll adjust their coverage based on these high-level complaints.
