Twitter laughs after Sean Spicer cites poll from a network Trump called ‘fake news’

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer caught some flack on Twitter after he tweeted out a CNN poll that suggested a positive reception to President Trump’s speech to Congress the night before.

In the wake of the Trump administration characterizing CNN as “fake news,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer caught some flack on Twitter after he tweeted out a CNN poll that suggested a positive reception to President Trump‘s speech to Congress the night before.

According to the CNN poll cited by Spicer, 3 out of 4 Americans thought Trump’s speech was good overall.

Trump and other members of his administration have repeatedly labeled CNN as “fake news.” CNN was among the number of media outlets barred from Spicer’s press conference last week.

CNN anchor Jake Tapper immediately pounced on the tweet, saying it was an example of how “dishonest” the White House’s claim is.

Naturally, other Twitter users piled on as well:
