Trump does his 'Fake News' schtick again on Friday to avoid taking any real questions on Russian meddling from CNN, and instead turns to Fox News. On Saturday, the White House cancelled a Sunday morning appearance by John Bolton on Jake Tapper's show because Jim Acosta "disrespected" Trump at the presser.
America deserves better than this tinpot dictator. Or maybe it doesn't. Whatever.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Saturday that the White House decided to cancel an interview between CNN and national security adviser John Bolton after a CNN reporter “disrespected” President Trump earlier this week.
CNN’s “State of the Union” host Jake Tapper on Saturday tweeted that the White House intervened and canceled a scheduled interview with Bolton who “remains fully prepared to do the interview” on Sunday.
Sanders was referring to Trump's refusal to take questions from the network on Friday during an international press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May.
Trump lashed out at the network after CNN reporter Jim Acosta tried to ask him a question.
“CNN is fake news. I don’t take questions from CNN,” Trump responded.
“Let’s go to a real network,” he added, giving a question to Fox News's John Roberts.
Sander's stupid tweet got deserved derision and scorn from the internet.
