Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News: President slams the US media on foreign soil, prompting CNN’s Jim Acosta to say Trump had a ‘fake news conference’ in Poland. But is CNN only making things worse for themselves with their ‘selective outrage’ and by playing victim?
CNN’s political reporter Chris Cillizza today retweeted a 2-second clip showing Polish Leader Andrzej Duda’s wife Agata Kornhauser-Duda walking past President Donald J. Trump to shake the hand of First Lady Melania Trump. See the Fox Video at 5:40 and following and watch the identical two seconds, plus the following 4 seconds and beyond that show Agata Kornhauser-Duda immediately turning to Donald Trump to give him a warm handshake.
Cillizza called the 2-second clip “legend”, apparently because it shows a fabricated snub when the video is limited to two seconds. Intelligent people wouldn’t conclude anything from a 2-second video clip when the audio isn’t even heard.

According to CNN’s website, Chris Cillizza is a CNN Politics Reporter and Editor-at-Large, covering national politics including the White House, Congress and every district they represent. His reporting lives under the brand, “The Point with Chris Cillizza,” and includes a nightly newsletter and weekday Amazon Echo and Google Home flash briefings.
Prior to CNN, Cillizza spent a decade at The Washington Post where he founded “The Fix” political blog and built a reputation as the authority on fast, incisive analysis of the day’s events. A frequent TV guest across networks, Cillizza was a MSNBC political contributor for eight years. Prior to The Washington Post, Cillizza reported on campaign politics for Roll Call where he served as their White House Correspondent. He also previously reported for The Cook Political Report where he covered gubernatorial and House races.
Cillizza is a graduate of Georgetown University.
If Cillizza replies the retweet was a joke or a put-on, the sharing of fake video editing is not appropriate following CNN’s retraction and apology regarding a story that untruthfully connected Anthony Scaramucci to a $10 billion Russian investment fund.
The 2-second “snub” was another “nothingburger” — a term used by frequent CNN contributor Van Jones to describe Trump-Russia collusion. However, Van Jones claims that his use of “nothingburger” to describe the lack of a story regarding Trump-Russia collusion in a secretly recorded video by conservative provocateur James O’Keefe, was a hoax by “out of context” editing.
