Things are really sucking at CNN these days as the network is reaping their rewards for years of lies, race-baiting and pushing conspiracy theories about President Trump.
When the Meuller report fizzled despite CNN’s promises to viewers that it would contain the smoking gun “evidence” that would lead to Trump’s impeachment for colluding with Russia, ratings took an immediate nosedive as those who realized that they were being lied to wisely chose to turn the channel.
With only the dead-enders and dumbasses as an audience, the self-proclaimed “most trusted name in news” has been laying off employees in droves, most recently the cutting of an entire division.
But CNN is doubling down on Trump hatred and since the disgraced “creepy porn lawyer” Michael Avenatti is no longer the hot commodity that he was last year, Anderson “Pooper Scooper” Cooper dredged up the foul-mouthed ghoul Howard Stern who claims that he has the goods on Trump.
According to the 65-year-old shock jock, Trump’s presidential campaign was really just a big publicity stunt.

Radio host Howard Stern, who often hosted President Trump on his show before the reality star and real estate mogul entered politics, claims Trump’s 2016 campaign was a “publicity stunt” to get NBC to give him a raise for “The Apprentice.”
“This is a publicity stunt,” Stern said in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “I have no doubt because I have some inside information.”
Stern said it all started with the 1987 book “The Art of the Deal,” ghostwritten by Tony Schwartz but credited to Trump. Stern said that a public relations professional suggested Trump start a “rumor” that he was planning to launch a White House bid.
“So, all of a sudden, he was being interviewed — the book goes right to No. 1,” Stern said.
Stern said that when Trump’s second book came out, “that’s when he started the rumor that he was running for president.”
“‘The Apprentice’ ratings were not what they were, NBC was not going to give him a raise,” Stern said.
“And what’s a better way to get NBC’s interest? I’ll run for president and I’ll get lots of press. And I think that’s what happened.”
Granted that it’s a step up from Stormy Daniels but CNN is really scraping the bottom of the barrel here.
