CNN’s Cillizza Mocks Trump’s Talk of Riots While Providing Proof of Riots
It only took one tweet for CNN to prove why it’s fake news.
Editor-at-large Chris Cillizza wrote on Twitter over the weekend how “Trump’s efforts to label what is happening in major cities as ‘riots’ speaks at least somewhat to his desperation, politically speaking, at the moment.” Accompanying his mockery of Trump was a photo of a building on fire.

Does he think the building in the picture was struck by lightening?
This came just days after a chyron on the network described the riots in Keanosha as “fiery but mostly peaceful.”
And that somehow isn’t even the first (or second) time this has happened. During the Minneapolis riots, a MSNBC reporter stood in front of a burning building to report that everything is A-OK.
Similarly, the New York Times described of the Kenosha “protests,” peaceful marches gave way to destruction.

Sometimes it is just too easy to dunk on members of the media for the hacks they truly are.
