Following Kathy Griffin releasing an ISIS style photo of herself holding the decapitated head of President Donald Trump, Mike Cernovich and Alex Jones offered $1,000 rewards for photobombing CNN live shots with a sign that reads “CNN is ISIS,” along with the photo.
Griffin is a co-host of CNN’s annual New Year’s Eve coverage, and the network has not yet announced whether or not she will be pulled from future broadcasts. In a statement over the controversy, CNN stated that they “found what she did disgusting and offensive.”
“We are pleased to see she has apologized and asked that the photos be taken down,” CNN added. “We are evaluating our New Year’s Eve coverage and have made no decisions at this time.”
Unsatisfied with the response, Cernovich — a popular author, journalist, and InfoWars host — announced that he and Jones were offering the reward money.
Big League Politics reached out to Cernovich, who sent us the proposed rules for the contest:
“We want you to win and do not want to create a bunch of boring rules. We also don’t want to play games. If you make a good effort, that might get you a prize,” the rules explain.
- $1,000 prize for anyone who is seen on TV with a “CNN is ISIS” t-shirt or sign.
- $2,500 prize for anyone who is seen on TV with a “CNN is ISIS sign” and who also is heard to say, “InfoWars.com ”!
- Follow the law. Do not trespass or violate any other state or local law.
- This contest is open for the next 30 days, or until $100,000 in prizes have been given out.
- You can tag @realAlexJones under the hashtag #CNNisISIS
“Again, this is fun! We want to award as many prizes as possible. Even if you don’t quite make it on TV, post your pictures to Twitter and social media,” Cernovich added.
Cernovich also announced that InfoWars will be setting aside $100,000 to be paid out as rewards.
The contest is already generating enthusiasm.

During the election season, Infowars announced a contest offering up to $1,000 for anyone who gets on national television and asserts that the former president is a rapist, or $5,000 if they do it in Roger Stone’s infamous “rape” shirt. The challenge immediately went massively viral and many completed the stunt.
The first person to claim the $5,000 prize came just hours after the contest was announced, as a man crashed a live broadcast of Fox and Friends. The stunt cracked up Fox News host Tucker Carlson, and was an internet sensation.
Deplorables are also currently leading a charge of boycotting CNN sponsors, as well as venues planning to host Griffin and companies that work with her.

So far, at least one venue that Griffin was supposed to appear at has cancelled her event. She has also been disavowed by “Squatty Potty,” a company that she had done a commercial for — who announced that they were pulling all of her ads.
The Secret Service has also issued a statement about the photo.
“We don’t have the luxury of knowing a person’s intent,” a statement from the agency read. “Each alleged or perceived threat has to be investigated thoroughly which taxes Secret Service manpower and resources that could be utilized elsewhere.”
Griffin has since tweeted a video apology, however, many noted that her eye rolling and lack of addressing the reasons she was sorry lead them to believe it was disingenuous.
Biden Calls Donald Trump Supporters Protesting Pennsylvania Event “Chumps”
Joe Biden exploded over a group of Donald Trump supporters picketing an outdoor campaign event in Pennsylvania on Saturday, calling the peaceful protestors “chumps” for seemingly disrupted his event. Demonstrators were standing on the side of the road next to his event, holding pro-Trump signs and referencing the Biden laptop scandal during the Democrat’s event in Bucks County.

In ironic fashion, the former Vice President then went directly on to opine how he would govern as a uniting force for the country, once again calling the Trump supporters present “chumps” in saying that he’d be a president for them.
The rattled Democrat would go on to leave the mini-rally a short time later. He’s appeared increasingly rattled and agitated at his latest campaign events, and has returned to form in committing a series of unforced mental errors and gaffes. He said that the Democratic Party has “the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud operation” during another Saturday campaign event.
Some likened Biden’s error to Hillary’s infamous “basket of deplorables” remark in 2016, when the then-Democrat candidate revealed her contempt for working-class white Americans.
This guy tends to have a lot of problems when he’s forced to deviate from a planned stump script. Just imagine the endless serious of gaffes if he’s elected President.
