Trump Team Apologizes For Sending Out Email Criticizing CNN After Bomb Scare

Donald Trump

President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign manager issued an apology Wednesday after an email was sent out to Trump supporters criticizing CNN after a pipe bomb was sent to their headquarters in New York City.

“The email went out today, unfortunately, was a pre-programmed, automated message that was not caught before the news broke,” campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement.  “We apologize for this. We in no way condone violence against anyone who works for CNN, or anyone else.”

The automated email, signed by the president’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump, criticized CNN for their reporting of a Trump rally in Florida.

“I have some breaking news for CNN … That is the real America that exists outside the liberal bubble,” the email reads. “It’s time for us to give the media another wake-up call from the American people. The President needs you to take the Media Accountability survey to do your part in fighting back against the fake news’ attacks and bias against hardworking Americans.”

The president has criticized CNN throughout his campaign and presidency, constantly calling their reporting “fake news.”

President of CNN Jeff Zucker put out a statement about the attempted attack on his company today, criticizing Trump for his rhetoric surrounding his attacks on CNN and other media.

“There is a total and complete lack of understanding at the White House about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media,” Zucker said.  “The President, and especially the White House Press Secretary, should understand that their words matter. Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that.”

Democratic leaders agreed with Zucker’s sentiments. Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer put out a joint statement not only criticizing Trump for his attacks on the press but for his tolerance of violence as well:

“Time and time again, the President has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions: expressing support for the Congressman who body-slammed a reporter, the neo-Nazis who killed a young woman in Charlottesville, his supporters at rallies who get violent with protestors, dictators around the world who murder their own citizens, and referring to the free press as the enemy of the people.”

The statement emphasizes that Trump condoned the bombing attempt against CNN and similar attempts against the Clintons and Obamas.

  1. In Rotterdam you van read on a very big billboard. “Alles van waarde is weerloos” “Everthing of worth is defenceless”.
    No neef tot say more.

  2. No apologies necessary. F CNN. That network is brain rot.

  3. I don’t see anything “unfortunate” in the wording. It’s a coincidence.

    Perhaps CNN and the rest of the MSM will take a moment to actually practice journalism and report on the Left’s riots, the assassination/rape fantasies of Hollywood, its occupation of neighborhoods and harassment. Maybe they should consider that NOT doing so is tacit encouragement for others to reciprocate/retaliate.

    Here’s a thought: try NOT reporting as if half the country is the enemy. If you wish NOT to be considered an enemy of the people then you must first establish that the people are NOT your enemy.

    1. F CNN. Every damn minute is trashing America on the Commie Nazi Network. They want to blame trump for this stupidity but when we say some dem lunatic shot Scalise, they get all twisted up over the truth. A dem shot Scalise. Not a rino, not a conservative, not a republican.

      1. Clown Noise Network has a past history of not only “making shit up” but passing along uncorroborated, partisan news to keep the narrative, i.e. propaganda, going against Trump.

        Somehow, somewhere I hope a network exec realizes that without Trump and the rabid anti-Trumpers they’d have no ratings. It’s late and I’m tired, but a veteran newscaster actually told them that on one of their shows.

        1. They’re too stupid to realize anything. Tree stumps have higher IQ’s.

  4. The wording is unfortunate, but I’ll buy that it was an automated email message.

    The wording is the same thing they say every other day, its just not the best wording when paired with a news cycle about bombs being sent to your political opponents.
