Former president and current Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump helped CNN out with their ratings Wednesday night by doing a New Hampshire town hall meeting. The bottom line was that Trump got a big forum and CNN’s usual liberal audience was left — well… pissed off. “Thanks CNN” was trending Wednesday night no doubt due to applauding Trump fans and libs angered at CNN for giving Trump the time.
For starters, things got contentious when Trump called Kaitlan Collins a “nasty person” for how she framed the classified documents situation:

CNN is famous for planting questions in the crowd during their town halls.

CNN cut short the network’s town hall with President Trump Wednesday night by twenty minutes after Trump, backed by a wildly supportive audience (hand picked by CNN), took control of the forum from anchor Kaitlan Collins right from the start and never let up. The live event at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire was scheduled to run from 8 p.m. EDT until 9:30 p.m., however right before 9:10 p.m. Collins abruptly ended the town hall.
They thought that if they tried talking with the audience that would help them smear Trump!
They couldn’t have been more wrong:
It’s just getting painful for CNN at this point.
