Is he serious?!

If there’s anything that president Donald Trump can’t stand, it’s news coverage that paints him in a bad light. And considering he does a lot of shady shit, it happens pretty often. That still doesn’t stop him from taking to his Twitter account for the regular tantrum, though.

Evidently, Trump was quite bored on his flight to the UK last night and took the opportunity to send out a bunch of bizarre tweets. But perhaps the weirdest of them all was his call on Americans to boycott their AT&T services because he’s big mad at CNN.

CNN is owned by AT&T, and Trump has made it clear numerous times that he and CNN are not friends, because they tell the truth about our president, and he deems that “fake news.”


“I believe that if people stoped [sic] using or subscribing to @ATT, they would be forced to make big changes at @CNN, which is dying in the ratings anyway,” Trump tweeted shortly after landing in London.

“It is so unfair with such bad, Fake News!” he continued to ramble. “Why wouldn’t they act. When the World watches @CNN, it gets a false picture of USA. Sad!”

Of course, this is an extremely inappropriate action from a sitting US president, as there is an unspoken rule against publicly calling for American businesses to lose their customers. But when has that ever stopped Donald Trump before?

Trump’s call for a boycott against AT&T actually comes on the heels of an earlier tweet where he complained that CNN was the only American news coverage he could get in London.

“Just arrived in the United Kingdom. The only problem is that @CNN is the primary source of news available from the U.S. After watching it for a short while, I turned it off. All negative & so much Fake News, very bad for U.S. Big ratings drop. Why doesn’t owner @ATT do something?” Donald’s tweet whined.

Apparently, despite the fact that Trump supposedly watches “very little TV,” all he’s done since boarding the plane is watch the TV he claims to watch so little of and whine about it all over Twitter.
