Politico reported that fake news network CNN will boycott the White House Christmas party this year. The news doesn’t get any better than that. Try not to panic.
“CNN will not be attending this year’s White House Christmas party,” a CNN spokesperson said. “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. We will send a White House reporting team to the event and report on it if news warrants.”
With a little luck they will boycott the press briefings too. Maybe the NY Times and WaPo will join them?
The reaction from the White House was priceless!

President Trump also responded.
“Great, and we should boycott Fake News CNN. Dealing with them is a total waste of time!” the president wrote online in a retweet of Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ tweet praising CNN’s decision to not attend the White House Christmas Party.

Did you ever think we’d have a President who would actually tel the truth.
Wayne Durpee had an interesting response too.
So #CNN is going to boycott the White House Christmas Party because Trump calls them Fake News? I knew something was up when I heard all the bathhouses around the Atlanta studio were reserved for that night.
