Trump attacked our Judicial Branch earlier today, and CNN just showed that they have no patience for his idiocy. Enraged by the latest overturning of one of his wrongheaded and illegal executive actions, Trump took aim at the 9th Circuit Court, threatening to break it up.
CNN stepped in. Continuing their trend of honest and hilarious chyrons, they ran the following text:
CNN deserves a round of applause for continuing to correct Trump’s lies. The president can’t just decide he doesn’t like the way our courts work and them summarily destroy them. For Trump to suggest he has such powers is sinister and stupid.
CNN isn’t being partisan, they’re simply being accurate.
