White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany blasted CNN as “a sad parody of a news network” after it ran a graphic saying President TrumpDonald TrumpSchumer: Impeachment trial will be quick, doesn't need a lot of witnesses Nurse to be tapped by Biden as acting surgeon general: report Schumer calls for Biden to declare climate emergency MORE is participating in a “desperate coup attempt.”

CNN’s coverage of pro-Trump protests on Wednesday ahead of the president’s expected speech at a demonstration included a chyron that read: “Soon: Trump to speak to supporters in desperate coup attempt.”

McEnany pounced on the network, saying the language was “unsurprisingly OUTRAGEOUS.”


“Apparently abiding by a constitutional process that Democrats themselves have used is now considered a 'COUP' by the Fake News activists!” she posted. “CNN has become a sad parody of a news network.”

Representatives from CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
