Even Bernie Sanders gets it right once in a while. America’s favorite socialist grandpa recently went on CNN and joked about them reporting “fake news.”
They did not take it well.
In an interview with Erin Burnett, Sanders was discussing President Trump not being aware of a particular news report. Sanders then joked that perhaps the President was watching “CNN fake news.” CNN’s response was even funnier than the joke. They cut him off and then cut to a commercial.
Seriously, Bernie should know better than to defy his liberal overlords. They do not tolerate independent thought, and certainly not jokes at their expense.
CNN, it seems, had the most convenient “technical difficulties” in television history.
Bernie responded, “Well I don’t know. Maybe he was watching CNN fake news. What do you think? It was a joke!”
CNN’s Erin Burnett responded awkwardly saying, “I, I know it was a joke…I’m saying you don’t buy what he said obviously”
At this point Bernie Sanders couldn’t hear the CNN anchor and he kept asking, “Are we on?”
They quickly cut to commercial break.
Here is the video.
One can just imagine the chaos in the CNN control room when Bernie Sanders stepped out of line? Someone must have been yelling for a cut-off and cut-to-commercial. The truth will not be televised, it seems.
What do you think about Bernie Sanders’ “CNN fake news” joke? Do you think the “technical difficulty” was authentic or an attempt to silence him? Let us know in the comments, because we want to hear from you!
