They’re at it again.
Fake news CNN reported early Monday that the family of Charlottesville victim Heather Heyer does not want the condolences of President Donald Trump.
In the video, which aired Monday morning on CNN, Marissa Blair claims her friend Heather, “would not want his condolences,” and, “she would not want him to speak her name.”

But there was one major problem.
When Trump offered his condolences to the family of Heather Heyer on Monday, her mother publicly thanked him.
In a statement Monday, Trump denounced racism and bigotry, saying, “Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”
He then mentioned Heather Heyer by name, saying, “her death fills us with grief and we send her family our thoughts, our prayers, and our love.”

Heather Heyer, 32, was killed after a madman drove his car into a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville over the weekend.
Her mother Susan Bro released a statement Monday thanking Trump for the very condolences CNN reported she didn’t want.

It’s another example of CNN using unchecked sources because they conveniently fit their anti-Trump narrative.
Trump tweeted shortly following Bro’s statement, chastising “fake news.”
Made additional remarks on Charlottesville and realize once again that the #Fake News Media will never be satisfied…truly bad people!

In an event of tragedy, CNN once again politicized the event to use it to their advantage in order to increase ratings, regardless of the truth.
