In the wake of two congressional wins in North Carolina, President Trump is pointing out supposed hypocrisy in the media’s coverage. He took to Twitter Tuesday, saying CNN and MSNBC were hoping for a big left-wing victory. That is until Dan Bishop and Greg Murphy won both races.

The president claimed if they had lost, the left-wing networks would have said it was a preview of what was to come in 2020. However, since they won the president said CNN and MSNBC will never talk about them ever again.

In fact, both networks were quick to move on from the coverage, but not before CNN was forced to give credit to the president for the achievement.

On the other side of the spectrum, Republicans are saying the North Carolina cases are a bellwether of what’s to come. They say the turnout during the special election is a promising sign for 2020.
