CNN Reportedly Boycotting White House Christmas Party, Citing Trump’s ‘Continued Attacks’

A new report tonight reveals that CNN has decided not to attend the White House Christmas party.

Per Politico, a spokesperson for CNN––in explaining the reasoning––cited the President’s attacks on the press in general and CNN in particular:

“CNN will not be attending this year’s White House Christmas party,” a CNN spokesperson said. “In light of the President’s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests. We will send a White House reporting team to the event and report on it if news warrants.”

In the past week alone, President Trump went after CNN International for being “a major source of (Fake) news” and put CNN in the running for the “FAKE NEWS TROPHY”:

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders weighed in on Twitter about the “good news”:
