Occasionally you hear something someone said and think, ‘How did they make that incredible, Mensa-level leap?’ CNN is a great source if you like head scratching comments that clearly serve one purpose — take President Donald Trump down at any cost, including their integrity.
Trump hosted the 2018 NCAA National Champions in football, the Clemson Tigers, on Monday evening. As everyone knows by now that since the White House residence staff is furloughed, Trump personally paid to cater the event with fast food from multiple chains.
The president then tried to bring a little levity to the Clemson White House visit by going through his thought process on how he should cater the event:
So I had a choice. Do we have no food for you because we have a shutdown, or do we give you some little quick salads that the First Lady [Melania Trump] will make, along with the Second Lady [presumably Trump meant Vice President Mike Pence's wife, Karen Pence], they’ll make some salads? And I said, ‘You guys aren’t into salads.’ Or do I go out, [Republican senators from South Carolina] Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott, do I go out and send out for about 1,000 hamburgers, Big Macs?
It was after those comments that CNN took issue with Trump’s “toxic masculinity.”
“That’s appalling,” CNN contributor Joan Walsh said. “It seems to me like the president will not be happy until there is not one single female Republican voter in the country. It’s incredibly sexist.”
Oooooo-kay. That was impressive. I wonder if CNN host Erin Burnett can top it?
“Sometimes what people say when they’re being funny exposes exactly who they are and what they think,” Burnett uttered. “Not that there was any question, but this is pretty clear.”
Give me a friggin’ break. The puppets at CNN wouldn’t know a joke if it slapped them in the face.
CNN Republican commentator Scott Jennings seemed to be the only voice of reason during the segment.
“It [Trump’s comments] didn’t strike me that way,” Jennings said. “I think he was trying to make a joke about feeding hamburgers to football players. I think you might be over-reading this one.”
Without fail, Burnett snapped back at Jennings.
“I’m not over-reading it,” Burnett responded. “He made a joke that was sexist about women. I guess maybe what we’re disagreeing with is whether it’s funny, and whether humor is something that’s serious.”
There it is, folks. If you ever needed more proof on what is killing actual comedy, Burnett just said it. The left hates humor, because it involves freedom of speech. And, God forbid if somebody might say something that CNN disagrees with.
As far as Trump being a “sexist” because of these comments, get over yourself, Erin. Just because you may have never seen the inside of the kitchen, doesn’t mean that if a women cooks something it’s because a man forced her to. Both men and women can cook. They really can. I do it all the time. It’s called a mundane daily occurrence that people like Burnett turn into supposed controversies in order to fit their agenda.
For video of the criticism and exchange, watch below:
Burnett is no stranger when it comes to manufacturing outrage. In just one example of many, Burnett raised the question whether there’s any way to take Trump’s tweets as “anything other than racist.”
Burnett is a fraud. She’s a bought-and-paid-for shill that toes the CNN line to the point that her show seems to be little more than propaganda.
