The National Rifle Association modified an infamous CNN advertisement to mock the mainstream media outlet, which has routinely been accused of being "fake news" in the Trump-era.

To combat the rise of fake news, CNN released a series of ads featuring fruit. The advertisements also took pot shots at President Donald Trump.

The NRA's ad featured a lemon and alleged CNN "colluded" with Hillary Clinton's campaign during the 2016 presidential election. Indeed, it was revealed last year that Donna Brazile, then a CNN analyst, gave Clinton's campaign pre-determined debate questions during the Democratic primary.

Seung Min Kim, a Washington Post White House reporter, tweeted the video.

"This is a lemon. Its network colluded with a Democratic presidential candidate. It's colleague gave debate questions to Hillary Clinton. Don't be fooled. This is not a journalist. This is a lemon, a bitter lemon," the ad stated.
