CNN hit a new low on Monday as one of their reporters tormented disabled Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
You heard it right. Danielle Diaz is a political reporter for CNN. She was on scene during a joint press conference between President Trump and Senator McConnell. She witnessed Trump assist McConnell down the stairs. After the press conference, she preceded to tweet about the assistance between President Trump and McConnell. The tweet was aimed to attack McConnell.
That hand-lock between Trump and McConnell, though. https://t.co/xFClDYCmdQ

Danielle Diaz may have thought the tweet was harmless, but it was so damaging. Mitch McConnell is a survivor of polio. He was infected before the cure was introduced in 1955. McConnell made it public during an election run in 1990. McConnell, like thousands of other victims of polio, is experiencing the effects after recovering from polio. He tends to have weak muscles so sometimes he needs assistance with climbing or descending stairs.
CNN political reporter Daniella Diaz sent a tweet on Monday pointing out that President Trump and Sen. Mitch McConnell locked hands while walking up stairs at the White House following their Rose Garden press conference. Diaz seemed to be mocking the Republican duo – but while followers quickly pointed out that the Kentucky senator is a polio survivor, the tweet remains on her feed nearly 24 hours later
Many users commented on Diaz’s tweet, saying it needs to be removed and criticizing the CNN reporter for the message. “You’re making fun of the President of the United States helping a polio survivor that stumbled. Stay classy CNN, stay classy,” one user responded.
Before the polio vaccine was introduced in 1955, tens of thousands of American children developed paralytic polio every year, according to WebMD. Post-polio syndrome affects some people who had the condition, and symptoms include extreme fatigue, joint pain and progressive weakness in muscles.
I am speechless about this. How can anyone tease the disabled? In my opinion, that was a below the belt kind of hit. This is proof what kind of news network CNN is. There is no way CNN can get out of this one. They have done a lot of horrible things, but this takes the cake. Either CNN is a racist news network or they hire incompetent reporters.
With this new development, I hope you all see that you can never trust CNN. They are the liberal media that will do anything for views. They have been caught so many times giving out fake news. It is no wonder our president has been threatening to pull their broadcasting license. I mean what more does it take for everyone to see how wrong CNN is.
