CNN on White House

Donald Trump has never held back his thoughts about the mainstream media as the president has engaged in a war of words [VIDEO] with the press since the early days of his campaign. During the entire 2016 election, the former host of "The Apprentice" made a habit out of calling out the press, even doing so during his campaign rallies and creating a hostile environment for reporters and journalists in attendance.

Of all the news outlets that have rubbed Trump the wrong way, CNN is at the top of the list. Trump has often taken swipes at the cable news network on more than one occasion, whether it's during interviews or on social media. Due to the tension between the network and the commander in chief, CNN announced that they would boycott the yearly Christmas party at the White House, much to the joy of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who celebrated with a tweet on November 28.

Taking to her Twitter feed on Tuesday night, Sarah Huckabee Sanders expressed her happiness that CNN would not be at the Christmas party. "Christmas comes early! Finally, good news from CNN!" Sanders wrote.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders' tweet comes just moments after CNN made the offical decision through a spokesperson for the network. "In light of the President’s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as invited guests," the network explained.

Twitter reacts

In response to Sarah Huckabee Sanders' comments, those who oppose Donald Trump took the time to make their thoughts known. "This is so remarkably inappropriate," one tweet read.

"Sarah, you do know you work for us the American people and that you are accountable to us? Why are you so petty?" one Twitter user asked.

"How many times has President Trump lied? Last count i saw it was over 600 times since being elected," Matthew Dowd wondered.

"Really Sarah? Really? You don't have something better to do? Oh wait that's right you work for a fake president who does nothing makes perfect sense that you have time for Little Snips at news organizations. Sorry excuse for a presidential Administration," a tweet read. "Just when I think you can't get worse..." an additional post stated. The negative reaction to Sarah Huckabee Sanders continued to pour in as the media's rift with the president moved forward.
