CNN host John Berman barely controlled his fury on Thursday morning while reporting on a tweet issued by Donald Trump where the president linked the rash of terrorist bombs aimed at his critics to the “fake news” media.

Trump tweeted. “A very big part of the Anger we see today in our society is caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media that I refer to as Fake News,” Trump tweeted. “It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description. Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!”

After reading Trump’s tweets on-air –and prior to displaying a map that showed the locations of eight terrorist mail bombs sent by an unidentified terrorist — Berman  snapped at the president, “Well, let me tell you what the mainstream media has been doing this morning.”

“We have been reporting on a bomb delivered to the office of Robert De Niro, an eighth bomb delivered somewhere over the last 2 1/2 days, and some of the other targets of these bombs include two former presidents, a former secretary of state, a former attorney general, a member of Congress and a former director of the CIA.,” he continued. “Explosives sent to either kill, threaten or scare these people and American society. Traffic was stopped on the West Side Highway today as this bomb was delivered to a safer area, and buildings have been evacuated.”

“That is what is going on this morning, and the president is blaming the media,” he bluntly concluded.
