READ: CNN Communications Tweets to Donald Trump Jr.: ‘CNN Has Made It Abundantly Clear in Its Editorial Coverage That This Ad Is Racist’

Shut down.

CLEVELAND, OH - JULY 18: Donald Trump Jr. listens to a speech on the first day of the Republican National Convention on July 18, 2016 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.

Last week, Donald Trump unveiled a provocative new web ad that accuses Democrats of allowing an illegal immigrant, who later went on to kill a police officer, into the country.

Turns out that accusation isn’t true, of course, but that hasn’t stopped Trump and his boosters from sharing and promoting the ad, which has widely been derided as “racist.”

On Saturday, Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to excoriate CNN for not airing a shorter TV-ready version of the ad, saying “I guess they only run fake news.”

CNN was not going to let that slide without comment, and even got a little snarky with the president’s son:

And went after Jr.

But some felt CNN was being hypocritical.
