Trump rages at CNN as the 'opposition party' for reporting on TSA sickout as government shutdown continues
American citizens are not taking this partial shutdown with good grace. Many (most?) see it as a bully trying to get his way at their expense; so they resist!
Just as the new Congress is sworn in, with democrats in control of the House, Trump decides to continue his massive temper tantrum to get millions of tax payer money to fund a wall he promised boastfully that Mexico would pay for. He partially shuts down the government, and threatens to use his "emergency powers" to get the wall if Congress won't give it to him, leaving over 800,000 Federal workers hung out to dry by expecting them to work for no pay. Surprise: many balk, and CNN reports on the resulting TSA "sick out."
Now he is carrying on hysterically and calling CNN the "opposition party" because they have reported on actual events caused by Trump's tyrannical behavior and verbal threats. Hundreds of TSA Screeners are calling in sick rather than to work for nothing.
It is long past time to do something about this juvenile man at the helm. What is next?
President Donald Trump on Saturday lashed out at CNN for reporting that hundreds of TSA screeners are calling in sick rather than work without payduring the government shutdown.
“The mass call outs could inevitably mean air travel is less secure, especially as the shutdown enters its second week with no clear end to the political stalemate in sight,” CNN reported.
“Great tweet today by [DHS spokesperson] Tyler Q. Houlton on the fake news being put out by CNN, a proud member of the opposition party,” Trump claimed.
“TSA is doing a great job!” he added.
Despite the president’s claim, Houlton has not tweeted yet on Saturday.
But on Friday, Houlton attacked CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins for reporting on the sickout.
