Why CNN is Trump’s favorite foil

If Trump fixates on television and hates criticism, then why isn’t MSNBC his No. 1 target?

Probably because criticism from MSNBC is so predictable.

Thin-skinned as he is, Trump generally ignores liberal voices who reflexively oppose Republicans. When is the last time you heard him gripe about the New Yorker or HuffPost? Or Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell?

Trump knows his supporters don’t pay attention to these voices, anyway. In his world, they just don’t matter very much.
