Having immediately googled “CNN Trump two scoops” in disbelief, it was quickly discovered that not only was this an actual CNN segment, they also saw fit to run an entire article on the explosive revelation.
And the report, from their YouTube channel:
Some explosive reporting there, CNN. Will Trump ever recover?
Regardless of the pointlessness of the story, it got plenty of attention for the opposite reason CNN wanted.

That's so unfair! Thanks CNN for bringing the ice cream scandal to the forefront. We need an investigation into two scoops gate. https://t.co/X9fDdt2nnu

Admittedly, the ice cream expose was still an amusing break from endless mainstream media coverage over nonexistent ties Trump has to Russia. Hopefully CNN doesn’t look into Putin’s ice cream habits next.
