Not only is CNN doing little to downplay its adversarial relationship with President Donald Trump, the network seems to be embracing the acrimony.
In an effort to minimize any potential momentum Trump may realize from Tuesday’s address to Congress, which was well received by the average American, CNN created a widget on Wednesday keeping track of just how long it’s been since Trump attacked someone on Twitter.
“He hasn’t knocked, tweaked or attacked anyone on Twitter since Sunday afternoon, when he claimed, ‘Russia talk is FAKE NEWS put out by the Dems, and played up by the media, in order to mask the big election defeat and the illegal leaks!'” wrote CNN’s Gregory Krieg and Tal Yellin.
A few tweets was all it took for Mary Katharine Ham to put lib haters who bashed SEAL’s wife to shame
“We’ll see how long it lasts — literally. So far, he’s gone…”
The network touted its petty creation on Twitter, naturally:

CNN set itself up to be excoriated on social media, which is precisely what happened as folks have grown tired of the inherent bias in today’s media.
Here’s a sampling of some of the vicious responses from Twitter:
@CNNPolitics How many days since cnn attacked a sitting president? 0. War of willls?
