President Donald Trump went off on Fox News on Twitter Sunday and carried that anger over to a Pennsylvania rally Monday evening. Their crime: airing a town hall with a Democratic challenger to cheers from a crowd. CNN hosts Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo couldn’t help but laugh at the president’s ragegasm.
“But they’re doing their job by having on both sides,” Cuomo said. “That’s what they’re supposed to do. He has to know that. He has to know that. How do you go bad on people that carried you like a newborn for months.”
“Because they carried you like a newborn for months and they have to wean him off the — off the–” Lemon said before Cuomo shouted out.
“The teat!” Cuomo shouted.
Lemon said that he was glad Cuomo said the word out loud.
“That’s not what you were going to say,” Cuomo retorted, laughing.
“I was like, ‘Can I say that?'” Lemon smiled. “They have to do it. They want him to be on. They want the opponents to be on. They had all the Republican candidates on CNN. We couldn’t say, ‘No Republican candidates,’ because that’s not how we operate. We’re a true news organization even at night.”

CNN analyst has a question for Dems: ‘How low will Trump have to go for you to impeach him?’
Following a day of bombshell reports on the rapidly-growing scandal involving President Donald Trump and Ukraine, a CNN analyst wondered what it will take for House Democrats to impeach the commander-in-chief.
Earlier on Friday, in an interview with NPR, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she was still not in favor of impeaching Trump.
CNN analyst and New York Times contributing op-ed writer Wajahat Ali wondered what -- if anything -- could result in Speaker Pelosi backing impeachment.
CNN’s Jim Acosta busts Trump’s whistleblower lies: ‘Just not answering questions in a straightforward fashion’
CNN's Jim Acosta busted several falsehoods in President Donald Trump's remarks from the Oval Office about a whistleblower complaint filed against him by an intelligence official.
The president answered questions about the complaint, which appears to center on a phone call he made to the Ukrainian president, during a White House news conference with Australian prime minister Scott Morrison.
"He did not really answer the question whether or not he spoke with the Ukranian prime minister about former Vice President Joe Biden, at one point saying it doesn't matter what he discussed," Acosta said. "But there are plenty of contradictions here that the president offered up to reporters when he was sitting down in the Oval Office, at one point describing the whistleblower has being partisan and part of a hack job, but at the same time saying he doesn't know who the whistleblower is."
Dem lawmaker encourages acting-DNI to ignore White House and deliver the whistleblower report directly to Congress
Appearing on CNN on Friday morning to discuss an alarming whistleblower report on Donald Trump's actions that the president's administration is withholding from Congress, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) encouraged the acting Director of National Intelligence to hand the report over and ignore the administration.
Speaking with CNN host Jim Sciutto, Swalwell made a direct appeal to acting-DNI head Joseph Maguire.
"This is an opportunity for Republicans and Democrats to unite and say, we don't want this in our democracy," Swalwell explained. "You know, that's why I wrote the Protecting Our Democracy Act, to, you know, have a bipartisan commission look at this."
