On Monday, Donald Trump signed a revised version of his temporary travel ban. Afterwards, CNN host John King mocked Trump for not speaking to the press afterwards, even though the mainstream media has been firmly against the president since before he was inaugurated.
King quickly learned he never should have messed with Trump.
“Look how the president signed this,” CNN senior White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny noted, according to Mediaite. “In fact, we can’t look at it. The media was not allowed in the oval office. This is a president in the first six weeks or so who seems to me to love signing executive orders. He holds them up.”
That’s when King began his rant.
“We won’t show you the picture of the president signing an executive order that was incredibly important to his administration and a very important policy debate in our country,” King said. “We will not show you the picture because we have a policy that you cannot have canned press release pictures from a White House.”
“You have to let the reporters in,” he continued. “The president is a big boy. He doesn’t have to answer questions if they’re shouted at him, but they wouldn’t let anybody in because of the other issue front and center today. That is the president saying that he believes his predecessor somehow wiretapped him during last year’s campaign.”
Twitter users immediately let John King he shouldn’t be mocking Trump.
