From Legal Insurrection, by Mike LaChance
The media seems to “jump the shark” on Trump at least once a week. The newest example comes from CNN which wants you to know President Trump gets two scoops of ice cream while other people get only one.
This is a real report from CNN:
Trump gets 2 scoops of ice cream, everyone else gets 1 — and other top lines from his Time interview
President Donald Trump is living every child’s dream: More ice cream.
According to an extensive interview with TIME Magazine, Trump’s White House staff has settled into Trump’s routine and know his desires, sometimes before he does.
For example: Trump takes two scoops of ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, TIME reported, while everyone else around the table gets just one.
In the interview published Thursday, Trump also expanded on his view of Russian hacking during the 2016 election, refuted reports that he is unhappy with his current national security adviser and took a level of blame for his combative administration.
This was even reported on the air:

“PRESIDENT GETS 2 SCOOPS OF ICE CREAM, EVERYONE ELSE 1,” the chyron reads.
This brings me to the obvious question: WHO CARES? Who cares if the president’s waitstaff are able to anticipate his preferences and have a Diet Coke or a second scoop of ice cream ready? That’s called good customer service! The White House waitstaff serve Trump nearly every day, so of course they know what kind of dressing he likes on his salad or what his beverage of choice is. And why are we all assuming that the other dinner guests couldn’t just ask for another scoop of ice cream if they wanted it? I have a hard time imagining the White House kitchen staff denying someone more dessert.
Brian Maloney of the Media Equalizer asks the obvious question:
CNN ‘scoop’: More ice cream for Trump than others
Is this why voters have lost faith in the American news media?
In what some are now calling “Ice Cream-gate”, CNN’s coverage of Donald Trump’s interview with Time Magazine highlights an apparent “scoop”: the president is said to receive extra ice cream with his chocolate cream pie.
It sure is a good thing Trump doesn’t drink. Can you imagine the headlines?
