CNN Jumps to Conclusions After Trump Wishes Rob Porter Well

President Trump offered his well wishes to his now former staff secretary Rob Porter following his resignation in the wake of domestic violence allegations from his two ex-wives. Trump commended his "hard work" while he served in the White House and said he hopes he was a wonderful career ahead of him.

He also reminded the press that Porter has said he's innocent.

Aware of the president's remarks, CNN jumped to the following conclusion during its breaking news report.

It's unclear whether it was mentioned in this Wolf Blitzer segment that the White House has expressed its shock over the "serious" and "disturbing" Porter allegations. It's unclear what exactly White House Chief of Staff John Kelly knew in terms of the severity of the allegations, but he did note "there is no place for domestic violence in our society." 

CNN loves throwing shade at the Trump administration with its editorialized chyrons. In the past year, the network has shared its biased opinions on everything from Russian collusion, to how many scoops of ice cream the president eats.

"Trump: I Don’t Support WikiLeaks (He Loved it in 2016)," one of the chyrons read. Last month, when White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway insisted that no one in the administration is obsessing over Hillary Clinton, CNN shot back with the following subtitle.

The network's anti-Trump, pro-Hillary agenda led to a public scolding by Conway live on air last year.

"I love CNN but you've got to be honest here," she told Jake Tapper. "The lower thirds, what's always on the chyron, the panelists, the so-called experts constantly saying, 'She can't lose. The race is over.'"
