The foot-stomping brass at CNN announced that they would boycott the White House Christmas Party, a direct response to President Trump’s continuing attacks on the network as ‘fake news.’

“CNN will not be attending this year’s White House Christmas party,” a spokesperson announced. “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.”

They aren’t attacks on freedom of the press, they’re attacks on shoddy journalism in which CNN has cornered the market. The only people unaware of that distinction work … at CNN.

So the network took their fake news ball and went home.

 

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders posted a response that was straight fire, mocking the network’s temper tantrum.

“Christmas comes early!” she wrote after retweeting an article on the news network’s boycott. “Finally, good news from CNN.”

Oh. No. She. Didn’t!

 

President Trump later joined in the celebration over CNN’s boycott …

 

This isn’t the first time media snowflakes have threatened a boycott to show the President that they’re super, super angry, and they’re not going to take it anymore.

Earlier this year, top media figures openly discussed the idea of boycotting the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner.

 

President Trump made a mockery of that boycott as well, beating them to the punch by announcing he, himself, would not attend the dinner.

 

Now, Sanders is telling CNN if they don’t want to attend the Christmas party, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

When will the network finally realize they’re no longer relevant in this administration?
