The Washington Post’s headline proffers a convenient Leftward-bound leap characteristic of most of the MSM’s coverage of President Trump, and the Right, in general.
…screams the headline.
A day after defending his use of social media as befitting a “modern day” president, President Trump appeared to promote violence against CNN in a tweet.
Trump, who is on vacation at his Bedminster golf resort, posted on Twitter an old video clip of him performing in a WWE professional wrestling match, but with a CNN logo superimposed on the head of his opponent. In the clip, Trump is shown slamming the CNN avatar to the ground and pounding him with simulated punches and elbows to the head. Trump added the hastags #FraudNewsCNN and #FNN, for “fraud news network.”
The Leftist MSM has no qualms about extrapolating violent motivations from oblique thematic references when it comes to Conservative expression, but they seem amazingly restrained from such leaps when musicians, actors and politicians portray mock executions of the President.
It’s OK, WaPo.
Keep it up. The Reckoning will come.
