CNN requested press passes to cover the Deploraball which is being held at the Press Club in downtown D.C. Thursday night before the inauguration. Remember Seinfeld’s famous no soup for you episode? The organizers of the Deploraball, MAGA 3X published a scathing response on their Twitter which pretty much amounts to no press pass for you CNN. CNN you have been denied. The organizers of the inaugural ball just shut down CNN. This is another slam to CNN who was just accused of being fake news by Donald Trump during after CNN ran that unverified, unsubstantiated fake news story. Senior White House Correspondent, Jim Acosta rudely yelled at Trump during that press conference.
CNN won’t be covering the 2017 inauguration Deploraball from the inside after event organizers told the news network that it was withholding press passes for reporters because of unfair coverage of President-elect Donald Trump during the campaign season.
The Deploraball — which is a callback to Hillary Clinton’s famous “basket of deplorables” remark about Donald Trump supporters — is a sold-out social event this evening, the night before the GOP standard-bearer is sworn in as president, for about 1,000 pro-Trump grassroots activists and social media luminaries who backed the New York real estate mogul in the election. The gala will take place at the National Press Club in downtown D.C.
On Twitter, the Deploraball #MAGA3X group disclosed a response that it had sent to CNN.
“We’re hosting the Deploraball at the Press Club because we support quality journalism. We sincerely want to rebuild trust with the media. Unfortunately, we feel your coverage during the election was biased to the point of being irresponsible. We question your integrity as an institution of journalism. Therefore, we will not be issuing you press passes.”
The “no press passes for you” response added that the New Yorker and New York Magazine, neither of which are Trump-friendly outlets, will receive press credentials.
