In case it hasn’t become clear by now that CNN is a news network that fits the cultural definition of “snowflake” with their constantly hurt feelings over being criticized and shut out by the Trump administration, what they just did to a pro-gun Parkland shooting survivor should erase all doubt.

Kyle Kashuv, a student who survived the shooting in Parkland, Florida that left 17 people dead, was scheduled to have an interview with CNN host Brooke Baldwin. However, after Kashuv shared a tweet of someone calling Baldwin a “fake news hypocrite,” the interview was cancelled.

The Free Beacon is reporting:

Kyle Kashuv, a Parkland shooting survivor and proponent of the Second Amendment, claimed Wednesday that CNN canceled his scheduled interview with host Brooke Baldwin because he quote-tweeted a tweet that referred to Baldwin as a “fake news hypocrite.”

“My friend just got a call from @CNN. They’re canceling my interview because I quote RTed a Tweet where @ClayTravis called @BrookeBCNN a ‘fake news hypocrite’ (and was quoted in the title),” Kashuv tweeted.

The Free Beacon reached out to CNN for comment and has not received a response.

Kashuv continued to criticize CNN for cancelling his interview over a tweet, and for allowing people on its network to make unchallenged incendiary comments, such as calling National Rifle Association (NRA) spokesperson Dana Loesch and NRA members child murderers, and saying that to look at Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) is like looking down the barrel of an AR-15.

In other words, CNN totally thinks it’s okay, even righteous, to insult other people for the sake of pushing their political agenda, but if anyone dares to call them out for their constant half-truths and inconsistencies, they suddenly change their tune.

This is practically the definition of what it means to be a snowflake. And this kind of attitude pouring out of the mainstream media is precisely why people came out in droves to support Trump. He is not at all afraid to stick it to them. The American people are sick of being lied to all the time by politicians and news reporters, so electing Trump was their way of getting revenge.

It appears to be working.
