Bernie Sanders recently appeared on CNN and made a joke about fake news. Someone in the control room apparently didn’t like that because he lost his feed right afterwards.

CNN Feed Cuts Out After Bernie Sanders Makes ‘Fake News’ Joke During Interview
During an interview Friday night with CNN, former Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) joked about “CNN fake news” at which point the feed cut out.
Speaking to Erin Burnett, Sanders was responding to a clip of President Donald Trump saying he had not seen reports that his National Security Adviser Michael Flynn had discussed sanctions with Russia before being sworn in.
“Well, I don’t know. Maybe he (Trump) was watching CNN fake news. What do you think?…It was a joke,” Sanders said.
Soon after, CNN experienced technical difficulties but got Sanders back on the air after a commercial break.

Here’s where it gets even funnier. Trump tweeted about it!
While on FAKE NEWS @CNN, Bernie Sanders was cut off for using the term fake news to describe the network. They said technical difficulties!

That is a riot. CNN clearly doesn’t like being called fake news but the shoe fits!
