Note the tone of CNN's response? What about the tone of what they are responding to? He flat out said CCN's Carl Bernstein "makes up story after story, thinks like a degenerate fool, fake news, major lie, etc".. Also note the anonymous source that was "discovered"- Trump's ex-lawyer's current lawyer, Lanny Davis. Basically he gave CNN a story, denied being the source of the story, then later admitted to being the source, and then later claimed his own story was false.... (possibly because it opened his own client up to a perjury charge.). Trump then bashed CNN over it, and CNN defended themselves.
