CNN and Ice Cream-gate

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Is this why voters have lost faith in the American news media?

In what some are now calling `Ice Cream-gate`, CNN`s coverage of Donald Trump`s interview with Time Magazine highlights an apparent scoop: the president is said to receive extra ice cream with his chocolate cream pie.

`Trump takes two scoops of ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, TIME reported, while everyone else around the table gets just one,` CNN trumpeted.

Media Equalizer

The revelation that Donald Trump receives an extra scoop of ice cream with his chocolate cream pie isn`t exactly breaking news. Trump resembles a baby hippo; I`m surprised he doesn`t eat two cartons of ice cream with his damn pie.

If the Food Channel gave the breaking news treatment to the discovery that Trump usually gets two scoops of ice cream while everyone else around the table gets just one, it might be understandable. But for a cable news network to give so much play to such an insignificant story is unforgivable.

We already know that Trump is a greedy pig who thinks he deserves special treatment, if he ate two scoops of ice cream served on Sarah Huckabee Sanders` naked butt that would be a big story, but I hope to God there wouldn`t be any video.

I realize that we need a little bit of comic relief from the disastrous Trump administration, but CNN played it straight.

I`m glad I`m an unknown blogger, because if Trump read my article he would tweet: No soup and certainly no ice cream for Robert Paul Reyes! He is pathetic. SAD!!!
