Pretty much every president since there have been press conferences has, in one form or another, concluded by saying “thank you,” but CNN set out to translate what they think Trump really means when he says it:

That’s elementary school depth of CNN reporting…

Presumably CNN didn’t think President Obama meant “get out” when he said “thank you” at the end of press conferences:
And now I’m going to go on vacation. Mele Kalikimaka, everybody. (Laughter.) Mahalo. Thank you, everybody.
Translation: “Get out”?
The meaning of a presidential “thank you” has changed, according to CNN.
