Trump attacked CNN after his supporter was arrested for threatening a mass shooting at the network’s headquarters.
President Trump 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 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.
A 19-year-old Michigan man, 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.
Even Crazy Jim Acosta of Fake News CNN agrees: “Trump World and WH sources dancing in end zone: Trump wins again…Schumer and Dems caved…gambled and lost.” Thank you for your honesty Jim!

“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.”
