NRATV appeared to mock CNN and call the network a “bitter lemon” during the National Rifle Association Annual Meeting in Dallas this weekend, reports The Washington Free Beacon.
Washington Post White House reporter Seung Min Kim shared a video, recording Friday, on Twitter that included the clip mocking CNN.
“This is a lemon. Its network colluded with a Democratic presidential candidate,” the clip stated. “It’s colleague gave debate questions to Hillary Clinton. Don’t be fooled. This is not a journalist. This is a lemon, a bitter lemon.”

The clip refers to the 2016 campaign when it was discovered former CNN contributor Donna Brazile relayed CNN debate questions to then-candidate Hillary Clinton. Brazile later said she would “forever regret” her actions.
“In October, a subsequent release of emails revealed that among the many things I did in my role as a Democratic operative and D.N.C. Vice Chair prior to assuming the interim D.N.C. Chair position was to share potential town hall topics with the Clinton campaign. I had been working behind the scenes to add more town hall events and debates to the primary calendar, and I helped ensure those events included diverse moderators and addressed topics vital to minority communities. My job was to make all our Democratic candidates look good, and I worked closely with both campaigns to make that happen. But sending those emails was a mistake I will forever regret.”
