‘We are real news, Mr. President’: CNN covers Donald Trump Jr. and the chocolate bunny reporter

Really CNN? Is this the “real news” Jim Acosta likes to talk about? Yes, this is a funny picture of Donald Trump Jr. and some lifesize Easter candy, but did you need to do an entire article about it?

Donald Trump Jr. appeared to take questions from an attentive gaggle of chocolate bunny reporters in a Pennsylvania journalist’s perspective-bending photo. The image was captioned, “This is the danger of campaigning at a candy factory.” https://t.co/lNpJkU7kOf pic.twitter.com/k3ZfmfnGKT

Here’s the original photo, via Andrew Rush of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Also, this line from CNN’s report is crazy:

The chocolate bunny — or perhaps rabbit — in the photo’s foreground obscures what is likely an actual journalist conducting a television interview with Trump Jr.

Oh really? It’s “likely an actual journalist” asking the president’s son a question and not some freak chocolate Easter treat come to life?

At least Donald Jr. had a good sense of humor about the photo:

The chocolate rabbit gave a hard hitting interview and was delicious afterwards. https://t.co/OGiBFNEIc5

Don Jr. also had to wear a hair net to tour the factory:

And he had a good sense of humor about this photo as well:

I think it’s a good look for me… no? https://t.co/fGw2oXhDff

Don Jr. was at the Sarris candy factory to campaign for Republican Rick Saccone ahead of today’s special election in the PA-18:

It’s weird how CNN covered the bunny reporters but not the jobs added by Sarris thanks to the Trump tax cut:

Enjoyed a visit to @Sarris_Candies in #PA18 with their future Congressman, @Saccone4PA18. Sarris added 80 jobs after the implementation of the #TaxCutsandJobsAct.
That can continue but we need people like Rick who will fight for @realDonaldTrump go vote tomorrow!!! pic.twitter.com/Xr0HEzdduK
