Reporters at the New York Times and the Washington Post (with plenty of help from anonymous sources) kept a back-and-forth volley of bombshells coming all week long, but the credit for that really has to go to TIME and for raising the bar with its scoop on the president’s extra-large serving of ice cream at dessert.
CNN did its part for the resistance by following up on the ice cream scoop, and now it’s checking in with third graders to take their temperature on the president. Are elementary schoolers cooling on Trump?

@CNN More exactly, they're good at parroting whatever they hear, with no actual comprehension of the matter at hand.

@CNN So now that (according to CNN) 3rd graders hold valid political opinions, should we let 3rd graders run our country?

@CNN This looks like an SNL skit. Words cannot describe how much I wish everyone in your news building would sink in to the ground permanently.

@CNN This is not an interview, how about interviewing their teacher or parent who rehearsed the answers!

@CNN Interesting… moderator corrected 3rd grader on lowering tax comment but not on wall comment? Clear bias. CNN is trash.

@CNN Lol, CNN is trying to manipulate 8 year olds. They're putting up a good fight I would call it a draw.

@CNN Disgraceful! Politicizing third graders. For shame. Teach them reading, writing, math, music and the arts and ethics. Not politics at age 8.

@CNN Shame on CNN. Baiting children with guided questions to disrespect the president. Not a Trump supporter but this biased reporting is wrong.

@CNN Shows you how the press can influence. That is why it is important to be fair and objective. Kids were smart though.
