In a Sunday morning tweet, President Trump accused CNN of cutting off Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for calling the network "fake news."
However, the full context of the interview reveals Sanders was actually criticizing Trump for calling CNN "fake news," which he has done for months, particularly after CNN reported on the controversial Russian dossier.
In an interview on Saturday, CNN's audio cut out after Sanders referenced the network.
Here's the full clip.
And here's Trump's response.
A president who attacks media that makes critical remarks about him as “fake news” does not understand what democracy is about.— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) February 11, 2017
Sanders, in the past, criticized Trump's tendency to call news critical of him "fake."
Observers insisted Trump was drawing improper connections.
Conspiracy theorists, however, sided with Trump.
Trump supporters believed Sanders was intentionally cut off.
