Last week, the President of the United States tweeted out an idiotic meme of himself, from his WWE days, pummeling another combatant after clotheslining him. The meme included a CNN logo pasted over the combatant’s head, making it appear as though Trump was pummeling the CNN logo.
Dumb, funny, ridiculous.
Par for the course.
It was difficult for CNN to find a way to screw up the story. Here was President Trump tweeting out juvenile insults at them. All they had to do was scoff and point out that Trump is the president, not some 4chan shitposter. This was a gimme.
They blew the putt.
First, they claimed that the gif was an actual threat of violence — or at the very least, would prompt violence from Trump supporters. This comes shortly after a Bernie Sanders-supporting, Trump-hating leftist attempted to assassinate dozens of Republican congresspeople, and CNN insisted — rightly! — that left-wing rhetoric wasn’t responsible for nut jobs committing evil crimes. But that logic went directly out the window when CNN saw an opportunity to pounce on Trump.
Then it got worse.
On Sunday, CNN dropped a report on the tweet. The report didn’t focus on why the president would tweet such a thing; it didn’t focus on why the president would be trolling Reddit for Twitter material; it didn’t even focus on why the Trump White House and Trump campaign made unsubtle overtures to the underbelly of the internet.
No, CNN decided to focus on the original shitposter who put up the Reddit meme Trump hijacked for his Twitter. CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski put out a piece tracking down the Redditor who put it up; Kaczynski reported that the guy’s feed was full of anti-Semitic and racist imagery, but added that the man had apologized profusely online, said that he never wanted Trump to put up the meme, and stated that the meme wasn’t meant to encourage violence. Then CNN dropped this incredible two paragraphs:
“CNN is not publishing “HanA**holeSolo’s” name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.
CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.”
That’s essentially blackmail. That’s CNN stating that it will out the guy if he dares to defy their political perspective or offends them sufficiently.
……CNN has accomplished the Houdini-esque feat of turning itself into the villain after President Trump tweeted a gif of himself body-slamming the CNN logo and punching it. This should demonstrate once again that Trump isn’t ruining CNN — CNN is so obsessed with Trump that it’s busily ruining whatever is left of its credibility.
Here, CNN. There’s some more where that came from:
The idiots in the main stream liberal media are typical school yard bullies. They taunt, hurl vile insults, and generally act like jackasses. When a fraction of what they do gets flung back at them, even in a funny way, they completely lose it.
Just a few examples of the violence and filth the Left has spewed in the last eight months:
Kathy Griffin, a noxious washed-up comedian made a video holding the fake bloodied head of Trump.
CNN sponsored an assassination play, “Julius Caesar”, at “Shakespeare in the Park”, with the main character bearing a strong resemblance to Donald Trump.
Chris “Tingles” Matthews, who longs for his old position of giving Obama blow jobs, suggested that Trump should murder his son in law, Jared Kushner, because Kushner and wife Ivanka Trump are ‘just like the sons of Saddam Hussein, Uday and Qusay’ — both brutal murderers.
James T. Hodgkinson, a Bernie Bro wackjob inspired by the Democrat rhetoric of violence, sprayed a hail of bullets at a GOP baseball practice.
There’s been a steady barrage of death threats, assaults, and filth-laden tantrums on social media from leftwing journos, college professors, and disgruntled Hillary/Bernie voters who hate the fact that Trump was elected. Tough shit.
Now they know how we felt the eight years Barky Obama occupied the White House.
BTW: Kaczynski is the shitbag who orchestrated a social media attack against a young woman—a 30-year-old PR director named Justine Sacco—because she posted a lame joke about Africa and AIDs. Kaczynski decided the Tweet was ‘racist’ and by the time she landed at the airport after an 11 hour flight, she was mobbed by reporters, was fired from her job, and had to go into hiding.

CNN is full of the most hideous media bile ever made and it’s pure entertainment to watch the meltdown.
