CNN, the news organization, published a piece accusing soldiers of possibly violating Department of Defense rules by asking President Donald Trump to sign Make America Great Again hats.
This isn’t a joke, this is a real “story” that CNN is pursuing, both in its web format and in its televised version. This is something that a CNN reporter actually wrote, and a CNN editor presumably signed off on and published.
Here are some paragraphs from the “report,” which was credited to Eli Watkins and TWO OTHER contributors, bringing the size of the reporting team on this piece to three individuals:
“President Donald Trump made his first visit to a war zone on Wednesday, receiving an enthusiastic reception from many US troops there — some of whom may have run afoul of military rules.
Video footage and the written report of Trump’s visit with service members in Iraq showed the President signing “Make America Great Again” hats and an embroidered patch that read “Trump 2020.”
But troops’ requests for the autographs could brush up against Department of Defense guidelines for political activities…
US military authorities in the coalition did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.
Retired Rear Adm. John Kirby, a former Obama administration spokesperson and a CNN analyst, said on CNN’s “The Situation Room” on Wednesday that service members having Trump sign the items was inappropriate.
CNN passage ends
It’s hard to know exactly how to feel about this supposed news article. It is hard to wrap one’s mind around the staggering delusion, the complete and utter disconnect from reality and decency, exemplified here by CNN. It’s hard to even place oneself in the mindset of a CNN “reporter” who feels that it’s appropriate or interesting to do something like this.
Some people laughed when CNN blackmailed a Reddit user named Han A**hole Solo into hiding after he posted a pro-President Trump meme.
Some people merely shrugged when CNN showed up on the front lawn of a nice older lady who allegedly unwittingly shared Russian stuff on Facebook.
Some people turned a blind eye when Don Lemon got drunk on the air.
Now, we are here. At this point. CNN is trying to get active-duty military service members in trouble for asking President Trump to sign their MAGA hats.
That’s where we are now with CNN. There are no words for this new reality. There is only sadness.
I have made my thoughts on CNN known.

New York Times Writer Blames Evangelical Christians for Chinese Coronavirus
Not China’s Communist Party.
A New York Times writer published a column largely assigning blame for America’s Chinese coronavirus epidemic on Evangelical Christians.
In Stewart’s column, titled ‘The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response,’ she frames conservative Christians for a supposed lacking national effort to contain the disease. Stewart alleges that Christians within the administration are preventing the federal government from recognizing ‘science,’ repeating a trope long alleged by liberals that their political opponents are supposedly ignorant of the discipline.
In the article, Stewart claims that “Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown.”
She fails that recognize that scientific experts on viral outbreaks such as Dr. Anthony Fauci have informed the federal government’s response since the beginning of the crisis.
Stewart fails to mention that it was progressive liberals across the world who largely opposed international travel bans, a scientifically verifiable means of virus transmission and spread. The European Union lagged well behind the United States and Canada in placing curbs on travel across borders.
Perhaps most egregiously, she fails to even so much as assign any culpability for America’s coronavirus epidemic on the Chinese Communist Party, which failed to so much as even admit the scale of the problem as the disease first took the form of a true public health pandemic in China. The CCP’s negligent cover-up of the coronavirus epidemic in undoubtedly the most ‘unscientific’ governmental approach to the virus, with grave consequences. And China’s authoritarian leaders are by no means conservative Christians.
Stewart’s reaching move to blame Evangelicals for the coronavirus outbreak in America is merely a reactionary take from a cultural liberal seeking to impute political commentary in the midst of a pandemic.
