“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

Some QAnon news: QAnon figure Austin Steinbart, who goes by the alias "Baby Q" and has claimed to be the leader of QAnon visiting from the future via time travel, just filed to act as his own attorney in a federal felony case. What could go wrong?
