Viewers were outraged when CNN aired a special about Ivanka Trump on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
In the 30-minute segment titled “CNN Special Report: First Daughter: Ivanka Trump,” Gloria Borger interviewed the president-elect’s family about Ivanka’s childhood, her relationship with Jared Kushner and her strong business acumen.
Minutes after the interview started airing, CNN’s viewers got on Twitter to voice their complaints the special was being aired on a civil rights holiday.
@CNN Would it kill you to air a program about MLK on MLK Day? Ivanka Trump?
