First Lady Melania Trump responded to a New York Times report that suggests she isn’t allowed to watch CNN with a subtle, yet blistering, statement on Wednesday.
When CNN reached out to the first lady for comment, her office humiliated the network.
"Did you know that every 15 minutes a baby is born with NAS? Maybe you'd like to talk about the 160,000 kids who skip school every day for fear of being bullied, or that 280,000 students are physically attacked in schools every month," Grisham told CNN in a statement.
She added, ”Seems kind of silly to worry about what channel she watches on TV (any channel she wants btw) or if she heard some recording on the news.”
The New York Times report claimed President Donald Trump caused a "bit of a stir" when he saw a TV used by his wife tuned to CNN.
"He raged at his staff for violating a rule that the White House entourage should begin each trip tuned to Fox — his preferred network over what he considers the 'fake news' CNN — and caused 'a bit of a stir' aboard Air Force One," the report said.
Following the incident, officials confirmed that tuning the TVs to Fox would be standard operating procedure going forward," according to the report.
President Trump recently warned people not to "believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news."
During a speech at the annual convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars on Tuesday, the president urged his supporters to "stick with us" when it comes to information from the White House.
