On Monday, CNN hosts dedicated a segment to dissecting President Donald Trump’s apparent addiction to Diet Coke featuring a gastroenterologist — and Twitter had a lot to say about it.

“BREAKING NEWS: Trump has a coke problem,” activist and Amplifire News editor Jordan Uhl tweeted, accompanied by a screenshot of CNN’s Brooke Baldwin speaking with Gastroenterologist Dr. Samantha Nazareth.

Right Wing Watch’s Jared Holt, on the other hand, noticed how fluffy the piece seemed and joked “Ah, I see our friends at Apple Bannana [sic] TV are only covering the biggest stories and definitely not giving ammo to people who want to shred their legitimacy.”

Uhm, ok CNN. I don't think Trump's 12 diet cokes a day is really his health concern. There's not currently compelling evidence that artificial sweeteners increases insulin production. Plenty of real things to criticize other than President's diet.

It's bad enough that Trump eats his steak well done with ketchup. But Diet Coke? Really? #CokeZero is where it's at, dude.

My boss had to have basically emergency surgery last year that can be almost solely attributed to his four 32 oz diet cokes a day

This is a lot of caffeine for one day…..and I doubt Trump is drinking caffeine-free Diet Coke! Between the tannic acid in the soda and caffeine, what a health nightmare! https://t.co/M8L95EKSxf

Nicolle Wallace rains hell on GOP: ‘It’s going to take a dead Russian hooker’ before they wake up to Trump criminality
MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace this week heaped scorn upon her former party for making their minds up about impeaching President Donald Trump seemingly before hearings even started.
"It's going to take a dead Russian hooker at the bottom of the Hudson before Republicans wake up," she said. "They don't care about anything -- and now they also don't care about foreign interference in domestic elections."
Wallace then said that Republicans should be very careful about embracing a precedent in which it is acceptable for presidents to use their office to pressure foreign countries to investigate their political opponents.
Meghan McCain snaps at View co-hosts for getting ‘cheap applause’ after she’s schooled on impeachment hearings
"The View" co-host Meghan McCain exploded after her fellow panelists criticized Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) for signaling he would not support impeachment for President Donald Trump, despite the testimony placing him at the center of an apparent extortion scheme against Ukraine.
The conservative McCain pointed out that independents had lost support for impeachment since hearings began, and she played a clip of Hurd explaining why he didn't believe the evidence supported impeachment -- and her co-hosts wondered if he had heard the testimony.
"I think the point of the show is we live in a world where every panel has a different view," McCain said. "I also lived in Virginia -- Trump MAGA hat people everywhere -- and there are people in this country, and congresspeople like Mike Turner who are not convinced what happened."
Mar-a-Lago to host event for conspiracy nuts who believed Obama was a secret Muslim
President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club is hosting an event for a far-right organization that once spread bogus conspiracy theories about former President Barack Obama being a secret Muslim.
The Washington Post reports that Trump's prized Florida resort on Saturday night will play host to the Center for Security Policy, a group that believes "mainstream Muslim organizations in the United States are secretly agents of anti-American jihad."
