CNN edits ‘Crooked’ out of Trump tweet on Hillary
CNN is willing to quote Donald Trump’s talking points on Hillary Clinton, but apparently not his nickname for her.
In a continuing effort to cast doubt on his presidential opponent’s health, Trump called on Clinton to release her full medical records in a tweet Sunday night.
I think that both candidates, Crooked Hillary and myself, should release detailed medical records. I have no problem in doing so! Hillary?
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 28, 2016
But when CNN reported the tweet on “CNN Newsroom” with anchor Jim Sciutto, a graphic of the tweet omitted the GOP nominee’s use of “Crooked” proceeding “Hillary.”
A CNN.com story that updated Monday morning does include Trump’s tweet in its entirety.
A CNN spokesperson told The Hill that “the tweet should have been shown in its entirety.”
