On Saturday, President Donald Trump hammered CNN at a campaign-style rally in Moon Township, Pennsylvania, dismissing the left-leaning organization as “fake as hell.”
Speaking in reference to a news anchor at CNN, Trump said, “Fake as hell CNN. The worst. So fake. Fake news.”
Trump paused briefly while the crowd booed and chanted, “CNN sucks,” before saying, “Their ratings are lousy.”
Trump also compared the news organization to Fox News, motioning his finger to the floor when comparing CNN’s ratings to Fox’s ratings.
Trump’s shot at CNN is the latest in a long list of jabs he has thrown at the network, as he recently tweeted: “CNN’S slogan is CNN, THE MOST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS. Everyone knows this is not true, that this could, in fact, be a fraud on the American Public. There are many outlets that are far more trusted than Fake News CNN. Their slogan should be CNN, THE LEAST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS!”
