Ever since the Left tried to blame the results of the election on “fake news,” Trump has mocked them as “Fake news!!!” He has turned it against them, using it to point out the extreme blatant bias in their reporting. Left media’s reaction has been to continue reporting with an extreme bias, and a perfect example of this is their reaction to his latest tweet.
Trump tweeted out a video clip of his appearance on WWE from several years back clothes-lining and punching an opponent. The video had been edited so that his opponent had a CNN logo for a face.
In my opinion, this is one of the most hilarious and tasteful jokes Trump has ever tweeted out. CNN, The Washington Post, and several other left-leaning media outlets, on the other hand, we’re absolutely appalled. They went on to report that Trump was encouraging his supporters to be violent against CNN news reporters.
Yes, I’m serious. CNN even issued a statement in which they said, “It is a sad day when the President of the United States encourages violence against reporters.
This is, of course, a completely ridiculous accusation. It was clearly a joke – something meant to cause laughter, not to be taken seriously. Yet, they can’t help themselves. They rant on like he just did something that could easily be taken as a threat like, I don’t know, holding up a bloody head.
Even if the Left did take Trump’s tweet literally, they still couldn’t have reasonably assumed this to be a threat, nor an encouragement violence.
The video showed him pretending to punch someone for people’s comical entertainment at what everyone knows to be fake wrestling show. If CNN was actually stupid enough to take this joke literally, then the only reasonable assumption they could have come to would be that Trump was challenging one of their reporters to a fake wrestling match.
The good part about CNN expressing fake outrage over this joke is that Trump wins, again. They’ve used every Saul Alinsky tactic they can think of to beat him, but have, once again, proved him right. They are making it clear that they have no intention to report the news in an unbiased manner.
Simply put, CNN and their media pals have proven themselves to be “Fake News!!!”
