A new CNN ad throws some serious shade at President Donald Trump and his supporters’ “alternative facts.”
“This is an apple,” the ad says while showing a red apple. “Some people might try to tell you it’s a banana. They might scream, ‘Banana, banana, banana,’ over and over again. They might put banana in all caps. You might even start to believe this is a banana. But it’s not. This is an apple.”
The New York Times has similarly shaded aides like Kellyanne Conway with an ad saying, “The truth is alternative facts are lies.”
“The truth is hard. The truth is hard to find. The Truth is hard to know. The truth is more important now than ever,” the ad says.
While CNN certainly has the right to mock the surrogates, they are also the ones that give Trump boosters like former Rep. Jack Kingston air time to push complete lies on their network.
