I’m sure everyone has heard of this by now.
CNN and the rest of the MSM can do all the “spin” they want; the overall picture of what happened here is crystal clear…and quite disgusting indeed. Even some guy from Vox of all places blasted them about it.
Further, one can ask a more basic question: why did CNN need to “investigate” the whole video incident to begin with? Why did they act if it were an outrageous case of lese majeste, rather than as a juvenile joke?
This blog is critical of Trump, so if a pro-Trumpite (Roissy perhaps) wanted to make a video of Der Touchback wrestling someone with “EGI Notes” written on them, fine – that would be funny. Who cares?
One good thing about Trump is that he has exposed the soft underbelly of the Establishment – their humorless over-inflated sense of self, their pathological ego, their unjustified monumental self-esteem. They are unable to stand being mocked without lashing out (ironically, like Trump himself) – thus they can be baited into making mistakes (like this).
The bad thing about Trump is that there are no real consequences when the Establishment mucks it up. We have the “God Emperor” as President and “America’s Senator” as Attorney General, and neither one does a damn thing about anything.
Antifa runs wild in the streets for months, the government has the power to crack down if they had the will and desire to do so, but the Justice Department can motivate themselves only for those who rioted during His Majesty’s Inauguration. As regards the rest of it, Trump’s supporters just have to fend for themselves. Indeed, Nathan Damigo’s fist made more of an impact – in more ways than one, eh? – on that whole situation than anything Fat Don or Howdy Doody Sessions has done or likely will ever do.
One problem is that Trump’s fanboys never criticize him. He gives de facto amnesty to the “Dreamers” and the fanboys instead drain their prostates spontaneously ejaculating about a “Congressional Picnic.”
CNN has nothing to fear from the likes of them.
