Trump attacks CNN and ‘crazy Jim Acosta’ after Michigan man arrested for gun threats against ‘fake news’ network

Published

on

President Donald Trump slurred CNN as “fake news” and attacked one of its reporters by name as news broke about a Michigan man who was arrested for threatening a mass shooting at the network’s headquarters.

The president gloated over the end of the brief government shutdown by citing a tweet by CNN correspondent Jim Acosta, who said Senate Democrats had “gambled and lost.”

Trump has complained about Acosta’s coverage in the past, and deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley last week loudly confronted the reporter during a press event in the Roosevelt Room.

Acosta said the deputy press secretary shouted so loudly the president was unable to hear reporters’ questions.

Trump has bashed CNN as “fake news” since the election campaign, and reports broke late Monday that a Detroit man had been arrested for making threats against the network and its employees.

Brandon Griesemer allegedly made 22 calls to CNN on Jan. 9 and 10, and some included violent threats and anti-Semitic and racist slurs, police said.

“Fake news. I’m coming to gun you all down,” the caller said. “I am on my way right now to gun the f*cking CNN cast down …. I am coming to kill you.”
