CNN seems to be stooping to new lows — and that’s saying something.
The left-leaning network has worked itself into a fury over President Trump’s alleged use of the word “s**thole” to describe places like Haiti, and are absolutely aghast that somebody might use that term.
At the same time, CNN seemed to have no problem saying the exact same word themselves, and acted almost giddy to repeat it. The mainstream media actually parroted the same “s-word” so many times that pundits edited together a video mocking how obsessed the left is with it.
Perpetually offended reporter Chris Cuomo took the faux outrage one step further, and blatantly called President Trump a “s**thole” on live television — all while lecturing America about how insensitive it was for Trump to say it in a closed-door meeting.
“We just have to be very clear about what’s going on in the White House, because the president is just showing you who he is. This is who he is, OK? We sum it up in a word, OK?” the liberal host bloviated.
Chris Cuomo wrote, “This is who he is” — referring to Trump — in bold, and then underneath it enthusiastically wrote “S**THOLE” in giant letters.
Hilariously, Cuomo then sanctimoniously scolded viewers about what a “bad word” it was, after having literally just wrote it on a whiteboard with his own hand.
“It’s a bad word, my kids are watching right now,” the CNN host griped. “I don’t want to teach my kids and your kids a bad word, our president decided to make that choice.”
In fact, the president did no such thing. By all accounts, Trump used the word in a meeting he believed was private, during a heated discussion among adults.
Even CNN admitted this in a recent article, which reported that Trump “expressed frustration behind closed doors with people coming to the US from ‘s**thole countries’” (emphasis added).
Suddenly, according to Cuomo, using it is bad, boys and girls… even through the network itself has been repeating it endlessly! They’re tripping over themselves to say it, like teenagers feeling smug by getting away with muttering swear words under their breath.
Even from their vantage point atop a high horse, the media seems to have missed that Barack Obama frequently used rough language as president. He even used a word almost identical to Trump’s to describe the African country of Libya. Que horror!
“Libya is a mess,” The Atlantic quoted Obama saying. “Mess is the president’s diplomatic term; privately, he calls Libya a ‘s**t show,’” the well-known magazine reported, without the asterisks.
Or how about the time former Mexican President Vicente Fox dropped “the F bomb” numerous times on CNN? The network didn’t seem worried about children’s sensitive little ears then… but of course, Fox is anti-Trump and a liberal ally, so it’s fine.
Finally, it’s worth pointing out that even Trump’s critics acknowledge that he was allegedly talking about countries and situations, not people. The very word “s**thole” is meant to denote a location.
“An extremely dirty, shabby, or otherwise unpleasant place,” is the Oxford Dictionary’s definition of the word Trump used. Seems pretty accurate.
Does anybody dispute that Haiti does not meet this definition? Many parts of Africa? Crime-ridden cities in Central America?
CNN is making fools out of themselves. Trump speaks plainly like a normal American, and tells the truth about the reality of the world.
Maybe liberals should be more concerned about why places like Haiti are in such a mess, instead of working themselves into a tither that somebody dared say it out loud.
