CNN Takes Swipe at Fox News in New Promo Featuring Democratic Candidate Andrew Gillum

CNN is airing a new promo that uses a clip of Democratic candidate for Florida governor Andrew Gillum taking a shot at Fox News.

Gillum, in his televised debate with Republican opponent Ron DeSantis that was held by CNN, delivered a sick burn when the congressman lambasted his job as mayor of Tallahassee.

“Andrew couldn’t keep Tallahassee safe, he’s not the guy to keep Florida families safe,” DeSantis said.

“Ron is being Don, and that’s Donald Trump, neglecting all sense of reason and facts,” Gillum shot back. “I preside over a city that’s experiencing a five-year low in our crime rate on trajectory to be at a 20-year low in our crime rate.”

“This is CNN, not Fox. You have to bring facts to the conversation,” Gillum added.

CNN has now turned that burn into a promo — first spotted by the Washington Free Beacon’s Andrew Kugle — which aired on the network on Tuesday.

“CNN — Facts First,” the promo concludes.

Meanwhile, Gillum appeared on Fox News Monday night for an interview with Special Report‘s Bret Baier….
