Another network insider referred to the town hall as a “f***ing disgrace.”Meanwhile Trump’s campaigners and advisers were overzealous with how “well” the night went for him. “We want to thank CNN for their generous donation to President Trump’s campaign!” one Trump adviser said late on Wednesday.
The fact that @CNN decided to give Trump, the sexual predator, an uninterrupted platform after the way he dragged them for filth (for years), tells you all you need to know about what’s happened to that network. Trainwreck.#TrumpTownhall #CNNTownhall pic.twitter.com/gUd4sSE4QP— Christopher Webb (@cwebbonline) May 10, 2023
“[Trump] should literally do this every night,” one Trump 2024 adviser said about an hour into the event. “Nightly CNN hits!”Those who were close to the rally-like show weren’t the only ones to criticize the network’s decision. Netizens took to Twitter to tear down CNN.
Jake Tapper sums up Trump's town hall: "He called a black law enforcement officer a thug. He said people here in Washington, D.C. and Chinatown don’t speak English. He attacked Kaitlan as a nasty woman… he made fun of [Carrol's] sexual assault and many in the audience laughed." pic.twitter.com/NSzVzVEApP— Justin Baragona (@justinbaragona) May 11, 2023

The fact that people watched a #TrumpTownHall (on @cnn or anywhere else) is the issue.— Greg Carr (@AfricanaCarr) May 11, 2023
Break their political backs. There’s more than enough of us. And turn off commercial news/entertainment media as a starting point for information. It’s not there to do anything but make money.
Tonight, in their serious spectacles – @jaketapper and @andersoncooper want voters to know they’re very disappointed in the New Hampshire voters in attendance who enjoyed Donald Trump’s answers. Very disappointed in you all. #TrumpTownHall pic.twitter.com/z6XAvifFJK— Chris Stigall (@ChrisStigall) May 11, 2023
