CNN: Stop the presses — Trump drinks 12 Diet Cokes per day!

On Monday, CNN — the cable outlet now seen by many as the least-trusted name in network news — reported that President Trump drinks 12 Diet Cokes every day, citing a report at the New York Times.

According to CNN:

President Donald Trump downs a dozen Diet Cokes each day, The New York Times reported this weekend. His love of the bubbly beverage is shared by many Americans and at least one of his predecessors. President Bill Clinton was frequently photographed with a can in his hand and reportedly placed a Diet Coke — along with a now-outdated cell phone and other items — in a time capsule at his official presidential library.

So, what happens to those who drink a dozen cans daily of the caramel-colored elixir, which contains a blend of the sweetener aspartame and artificial and natural flavors, among other ingredients?

Some research suggests that artificially sweetened drinks can increase one’s appetite and the desire for sweets. This effect was linked to aspartame, the most frequently used sweetener in diet beverages, which generates a similar response in the body as sugar. Just 30 minutes after drinking either a diet soda containing aspartame or the same amount of regular soda (with sucrose), the body reacts with similar concentrations of glucose and insulin.

It’s not exactly breaking news that Trump drinks lots of soda — he told us as much back in 2012:

Naturally, the report raised more than a few eyebrows on social media.

Yeah, they are…

Should be, but they’re not.

Remember, this is the same CNN that went ballistic with a report that Trump eats (brace yourself) TWO scoops of ice cream while giving everyone else just one.

CNN also investigated Russian salad dressing after former White House Press Secretary used it as a joke to hammer the left-wing fake “news” media.

Not long before that report, our own T.K. Whiteman joked about the media using Russian dressing to hammer the Trump administration.  Who knew they would actually go there…

How long before Democrats demand an investigation and call for impeachment as a result of this ground-breaking report?

One person wondered:

Good question.

Twitchy observed: “The Russia collusion thing must REALLY not be going anywhere when the fallback is sounding the alarm about Diet Coke consumption.”

We agree…
