Saturday night was just another weekend jam packed with partying or parenting for most, but something amazing happened at the Trump event in Harrisburg, PA. CNN accidentally showed video coverage of Trump’s event while the crowd chanted “CNN SUCKS” in the background.
How hilarious is that! But that’s not the only highlight of the night in Harrisburg. There was much more to it than just that pure gold highlight that might have CNN execs sucking on their own teeth in despair.

The night encompassed talking about Trump’s first 100 days as President and some other topics that swooned over a wowed crowd in Pennsylvania.
During a Saturday night rally packed with devoted supporters at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA, President Donald Trump spent extensive portions of his first 100 days speech torching the news media for their liberal tilt, using facts like the blockbuster April 19 Media Research Center study.
Trump launched into a lengthy disassembling of liberal media outlets on the same night of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD) by suggesting that “before we talk about my first 100 days which has been very exciting and very if, let’s rate the media’s 100 days.”
Trump should have talked about the last ten years when the media slowly began turning from a source of information to a group partisan networks fighting over ratings. They’ll always fight over ratings, which is normal, but to have our news networks begin picking sides instead of remaining neutral is a disgrace to the integrity of presenting the facts without an opinion. Real news should present the facts and allow the people to present their opinions. Once it was discovered that news agencies can attain higher ratings by race baiting people or catering to a particular crowd in their area, that’s when we took the wrong turn down the road of partisanship and ratings. Money hungry junkies choosing opinions over facts. But it works, so we keep doing it and it’s up to us to sort it out.
That’s fine, but could the liberal media at least report the truth. You can be a partisan network and still report facts. You don’t have to be fake news.
Knocking the media as “a disgrace,” Trump led into the MRC study by citing Morning Consult poll that revealed “more than half of Americans say the media is out of touch with everyday Americans and they’ve proven that.”
Trump previously cited an MRC study during the campaign, so he again name-checked the parent organization of this site on Saturday:
According to Media Research Center’s, 89 percent of the media’s coverage of our administrations has been negative and purposely negative and perhaps that’s because according to the Center for Public Integrity, 96 percent of journalists who made donations in the last election gave them to our opponent. Does anyone remember who our opponent was?
President Trump is correct when he states the media has been a disgrace lately. If there’s any bit of real news on the Internet right now, that is it. If half the American population feels the mainstream media news outlets have lost touch with their customer and have become caught up in their ratings races that require race baiting and choosing sides, then I wonder what the other half are thinking. It’s fine for a network to side with a candidate or system of beliefs as long as their reporting is accurate. As you’ve seen in recent months, the likes of CNN and similar keep getting caught up in nonsense that forces them to lose credibility.
“And I could not possibly the more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from Washington swamp, spending my evening with all of you and with a much, much larger crowd and much better people, right? Right,” Trump added.The rowdy crowd seemingly got ahead of Trump when it broke out in “CNN sucks” chants when Trump pointed to the members of the media who, likely to their chagrin, were at the rally instead of the WHCD.
For the Americans in Harrisburg to break out a CNN SUCKS chant that accidentally gets aired on CNN is one of the most hilarious moments in news history. That is a classic gaffe by CNN. They seem like they’re always so quick to cut the cord on people who say things that they don’t agree with, so where was their camera guy or programmer when this happened? How did they let that slip onto their channel and show their viewers how the American people really feel about their station and network?
Enjoy more coverage of the night in Harrisburg, PA, at the Trump rally. Share the good laughs with your patriot friends.
