Donald Trump can’t stop getting dunked on by news organizations.
On Saturday, Donald Trump took to Twitter for one of his favorite activities: attacking CNN (now in 280 characters!).
.@FoxNews is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly. The outside world does not see the truth from them!

In the tweet, the president once again decries CNN as fake news, this time arguing that CNN International “represents our Nation to the world very poorly.”
CNN Communications, though, was like “you tryna read, sis?!” and clapped all the way back, pointing out that *cough cough* it’s Donald Trump‘s job to represent the U.S. to the world, not theirs.
It’s not CNN’s job to represent the U.S to the world. That’s yours. Our job is to report the news. #FactsFirst 🍎

CNN Communications closed their response tweet with an apple emoji, a reference to CNN’s latest ad campaign about fake news and facts.
If Donald Trump thought CNN’s burn would pass by quietly, we have some sad news from him: the internet definitely took note.
Clapback of the year 😩👏🏽👏🏽

CNN’s clapback comes just one day after Trump claimed that he turned down Time Magazine‘s Person of the Year honor on Friday.
Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!

The internet collectively called BS, sharing out a wave of tweets parodying Trump’s. Time ultimately denied the allegations.
The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6.

So much for a quiet Thanksgiving weekend.
