The sharp-eyed CNN PR department fired back at President Donald Trump's oldest son for running to Twitter to whine that the cable network won't run his Dad's anti-immigrant ad that has been universally condemned as racist.
On Saturday morning Don Trump Jr. tweeted, "CNN refused to run this ad... I guess they only run fake news and won’t talk about real threats that don’t suit their agenda. Enjoy. Remember this on Tuesday," along with a clip of the video.
CNN wasn't having it and called the younger Trump out with a blistering tweet.
"CNN has made it abundantly clear in its editorial coverage that this ad is racist. When presented with an opportunity to be paid to take a version of this ad, we declined. Those are the facts," they responded.
