CNN Poll: 78% Viewed President Trump's Speech To Congress "Positively"
It would appear that CNN has found it's way out of "fake news" purgatory, at least for the moment.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer tweeted out the news that CNN's poll following last night's address by President Trump at a joint-session of Congress found the speech "Very positive" (57%) or "Some-what positive" (21%) of those polled.
Morale of the story? You get out of detention when you say things Team Trump likes.
As many know, in the past several weeks, the Trump administration has labeled CNN and other media outlets "fake news" when those sources have reported less-than-flattering information on the nascent presidency.
The feeling is so joyous over the current warm fuzzies regarding last night's speech that the White House has announced a delay on the new, revised executive order regarding immigration policy.
A senior administration official told CNN that they don’t want to take away from the president’s speech. “We want the (executive order) to have its own ‘moment.’”
For historical comparisons, the reaction to President Obama's first address to Congress was 68% "Very positive" and 24% "Somewhat positive."
