The hosts of “New Day” dug a deeper hole for CNN on Wednesday when they said that the network would not identify the Reddit user behind the viral video of President Trump wrestling a man with CNN’s logo imposed over his face because he apologized. CNN had previously written that it had decided not to publicly identify the man because he was a private citizen who showed remorse, but “reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change:”…THAT’S BLACKMAIL!

Sooo if this guy “behaves” according to CNN then they won’t out him to the world…Nice threat!

In case you missed it – Here’s our previous report on this viral video:
CNN reported that they declined to expose a private citizen who made the WWE video of President Trump wrestling with a CNN logo if  the guy promises not to do it again: “CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.” This is blackmail…right?

The hysterical video has been seen over 1 million times after it was tweeted out by President Trump. It was produced by a Reddit user who is private:

Save big on MyPillow products. Use promo code FedUp at checkout and save big on the MyPillow Body Pillow.

Soon after the CNN statement, twitter was abuzz over the fact that CNN was extorting this private citizen:

DONALD TRUMP JR RETWEETED THE THREAT:

CONGRESSMAN SCOTT TAYLOR TWEETED OUT:

#CNNBLACKMAIL IS TRENDING WORLDIWDE!

What CNN thought was a gotcha moment turned putto backfire on them. It’s being reported that the private Reddit user who made the WWE video is only 15-years old!
