Even when CNN was presenting Donald Trump’s own words, some at the network tried Monday to make sure to edit disrespectful references to Hillary Clinton.

In a tweet Sunday night, the Republican presidential nominee called on Mrs. Clinton to release her full medical records in response to speculation, which Mr. Trump has fueled, about the former first lady’s health.

“I think that both candidates, Crooked Hillary and myself, should release detailed medical records. I have no problem in doing so! Hillary?” Mr Trump tweeted.

However when CNN reported on the issue Monday, the network flashed a graphic representation that looked like, but wasn’t, Mr. Trump’s tweet. There was also a word removed.

“…both candidates, Hillary and myself, should release …” CNN’s image read.

The tweet was shown in its unedited form on the CNN website and a spokesman for the network acknowledged to The Hill on Monday afternoon that “the tweet should have been shown in its entirety.”
