Here we go again. Memesmith Carpe Donktum has made a video dragging CNN for its sensational coverage of race and President Trump has tweeted it, leading us into another round of pearl-clutching over the president feeding fake news to his followers. We’re certain Brian Stelter or Oliver Darcy will host a lengthy segment on it, but right now it’s MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin sending out the warning.
The president is tweeting out a fake, edited CNN video.

I'm sorry this is happening to you.

At the risk of being shut down for passing along fake news, here’s the video, clearly watermarked with Carpe Donktum’s name although bearing the CNN logo:

And again …
I’m sorry this is happening to you.

Dear Ferret Faced Human
CNN is already fake, so a parody of CNN is the truth.
Go back to your den and sleep it off. https://t.co/3OkODfrB8A

Will CNN once again label you as an "Anonymous Troll"?
— Carlos Lejjena (@MKDAWUSS) June 19, 2020
They’ll probably let this one slide … but we’ll see. You know it’ll make Stelter’s “Reliable Sources” newsletter at least.
'Am I doing the satire right'? Carpe Donktum gives CNN a much-needed taste of political analyst Joe Lockhart's BS medicine https://t.co/mOsWknWNQG
