CNN Sends Sketch Artist to White House Briefings

CNN Just Trolled the White House and Now We Can't Stop Laughing

It's safe to say the White House press briefings have been their own kind of circus since President Donald Trump took office in January. (See Melissa McCarthy's hilarious impressions of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer for more proof.) Things got even weirder — and more alarming — when the White House informed news outlets and reporters it would be breaking a longstanding tradition and barring audio and video recordings of the morning press briefings.

Both CNN and Fox News have expressed concern over the lack of transparency that has plagued the current administration, but it comes as no surprise that Trump and his staff would want to limit interactions with the press, especially since the president has repeatedly referred to news outlets — besides Fox News — as "fake news."

So, CNN decided to troll the White House on Friday by sending a sketch artist to draw the morning briefing and releasing his art to the public. "The White House has been prohibiting cameras at some press briefings, so we sent a sketch artist," the cable news station said.

The internet, of course, found some humor in the dismal state of affairs. Read on to see some of the best reactions to CNN's epic troll ahead.
