It's no secret that #Donald Trump is not a fan of the mainstream media, with #CNN being one of his top targets [VIDEO]. With #Fox News being the only major network to throw solid support behind Trump, one host on CNN took time to rip into the rival network.

CNN on Fox News

When Donald Trump first announced that he was going to run for president [VIDEO] back in June 2015, he quickly got on the wrong side of the majority of the mainstream media when he labeled illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." In the two years that have followed, the former host of "The Apprentice" has made bashing the media part of his daily routine, while singling out select news outlets for separate attacks.

One of Trump's top targets has been CNN, who the president labels "fake news" in an attempt to discredit their reporting. While Trump hasn't been a fan of most major news outlets, he has expressed support for Fox News who gives almost universal praise of the administration. After eight months in office, Fox News has become Trump's only cable news safe space, which was a topic of discussion during the September 3 edition of "Reliable Sources" on CNN.

On Sunday morning, CNN host Brian Stelter addressed the ongoing scandal linking Donald Trump to Russia, while playing several clips from Fox News showing the network's constant support and defense of the president. In response, Stelter hit back against the network.

"The message from these Fox shows is people are out to get Trump no matter what," Brian Stelter said.

"Whether it is about Russia, whether it is about Charlottesville, no matter what it is," he continued. "Trump morning host, excuse me, Fox & Friends morning host , not 'Trump and Friends,' though that would be a good name for it," Stelter noted, before finally pointing out, "Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade suggested this is a conspiracy!"

Lahren takedown

Not stopping there, Brian Stelter also exposed recently hired Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren who openly admitted that she would end her obsession with Hillary Clinton's email scandal when the mainstream media dropped their reporting over Russia's interference in the 2016 election and what relationship Donald Trump had with the Kremlin.

Moving forward

After eight months in the White House, Donald Trump's presidency is off to a rocky start. With the exception of Fox News and those on the far right of the political spectrum, the billionaire real estate mogul is struggling to increase his popularity, with just 35 percent of the American people giving him favorable remarks in the most recent polls.
