    Default CNN Loses Its Shit

    Trump tweets a link to a parodic video of himself slamming "CNN" to the ground, based on an old appearance in WrestleMania.

    The media loses its shit.

    But none more than CNN itself, which ran the original author of the video to ground:

In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.

    CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.
    Nice, huh? Not at all thuggish, CNN.

    And the best part? They probably got the wrong guy. Or at least not the proximate source of the video.

    This is a whole lot worse than disputes over fake news. This is fucking thuggery.

    The next time that piece of shit Phrost puts up a fanciful list of fake news sites, maybe the pathetic asshole should also list news organizations which commit despicable, possibly criminal acts.

    The far right and left have become hopeless fascists.

    We have all gone insane. In this specific incident, I believe CNN comes off far worse. In the overall picture, I think when you get far enough left or right, it all meets at the end.

    Does CNN represent the far left? They seem more like smug Clinton-voting just-left-of-centrists to me.

    I think the current situation has polarized absolutely everyone out of recognition. I can't even talk to half the country about how they're being lied to about things Trump did and said, and I can't talk to the other half of the country about the other lies about things Trump did and said. His haters won't hear it, his supporters won't hear it, nobody is hearing any facts. It's all bullshit. Bullshit is King.

    From outside the US, Trump appears to be a nationalistic economic populist with poor impulse control. That can be dangerous but he's not a Nazi or a rapist as cariacatured and some of his ideas are capable of generating substantially increased full-time employment in the US, at least over a 2-5 year timescale.

    Steve Bannon is an interesting character. He appears to function at the polymath genius level, but with all kinds of resentment/anger issues he still struggles to control.

    I'm glad to see a view from outside the asylum.

    Rapist or Racist? it's hard to know what you meant to write because he has been accused of both

    He's a bit xenophobic but he seems to be comfortable socialising with and employing Americans from different ethnic groups. It's extremely unlikely that he would be antisemitic given his daughter's conversion and his welcoming of his jewish son in law into the administration.

    He's not a rapist because he's never been convicted of rape.

    All of his character flaws are massively amplified by poor impulse control and his apparent inability to grasp that it's not prudent for heads of state to vent on twitter.

    That and the fact that the media/washington establishment appear to genuinely hate him.
