CNN Snarkily Responds to Trump Tweet About Their Failing Ratings

You may have seen President Trump's entertaining tweets Tuesday morning targeting CNN. The network recently embarrassed itself by publishing another report about Trump-Russia collusion with an anonymous source. Lacking evidence, it was forced to completely retract the story and offer an apology for not living up to the standards it set for itself. 

In the since deleted story, CNN writers suggested Trump transition team member Anthony Scaramucci was under investigation by the Senate Intelligence Committee for his ties to Russian businessman Kirill Dmitriev. Three CNN employees were reportedly forced to resign as a result of the hack job.

Trump responded to CNN's actions by dismissing the network as "fake news" and predicting its shoddy reporting can account for its plummeting ratings.

CNN's public relations Twitter account responded with the following snarky message.

On a similar note, Project Veritas has just released an investigation in which undercover reporters got a CNN producer to admit they were obsessing over the Russia story for ratings.

We are looking to President Trump v. CNN round 201.
