I’m about to say something that will send shivers up your spine, make you nauseous, and possibly even make your brain start melting out of your ears.

CNN is awesome!

Really! Look at all the favors they did for President Trump last night. They gave Trump a free primetime rally, put him up against a lightweight nobody who stood no chance, filled the audience with Trump supporters, and then even provided video of their network getting beat up by town hall viewers.

If you haven’t seen it already, they also produced what is destined to be one of Trump’s funniest and greatest moments.


While Trump’s receipt game was my personal favorite moment of the night, there was another one that was just so delicious I’ve watched it about 500 times already.

Voter Wrecks CNN Stooge

By now everyone is familiar with the post-event focus groups put on by outlets like CNN and Fox.

The idea is to gauge the immediate reaction of your average voter to what they just heard and saw.

Since the outlet is CNN, you know going in that the questions will be outrageously stupid and biased, and CNN did not disappoint.

In the focus group, voters were asked, “Does it bother you that he [Trump] keeps talking about 2020, and not 2024?”

Such a question is designed to accomplish several purposes: First, to get sneering liberals to laugh at the yokels who think there were severe problems with the 2020 election.

Second, to make it look like Trump is an obsessive living in the past, instead of focusing on tomorrow’s problems.

Third, to get a Trump supporter to say something stupid.

They might have accomplished the first one, but boy oh boy, not the second and definitely not the third.

It was a crucial mistake to call on Jonathan, CNN!

Focus group attendee Jonathan is obviously familiar with their games. But even he probably wasn’t expecting a question so stupid and lazy. If you watched the event from beginning to end, you might already have realized what Jonathan knows.

“So, I feel like part of it is also the media narrative, as you guys asked him in the first question at the town hall about the 2020 election,” Jonathan retorted (and emphasis added.)

So CNN tried to paint Trump as not shutting up about 2020, while also making that the first question they asked him. In other words, TV for scumbags.


But it got even better!

CNN Blames Trump For CNN Questions

You didn’t think CNN would do the honorable thing and apologize for such ham-fisted skullduggery, did you?

Of course not. The moderator then tried to blame Trump for answering the questions CNN asked!

“Don’t you think he could say, ‘It’s time for me to start talking about 2024, not lies that are untrue.'”

OK, maybe “TV for scumbags” wasn’t harsh enough, but I don’t think my editor will allow anything more graphic.

Attendee Jonathan has seen all this before though, and wasn’t taking the bait. He replied, “Couldn’t the media ask him a question about 2024?”

Finally, Mr. Moderator realized he was banging his head against a brick wall, and gave up after admitting that the entire set up was a horseplucky, saying, “There were questions, but you’re right, that was the first thing and it was something on our mind.”

Yeah, we know. It’s because we know that voters like Jonathan are no longer fooled by Scumbag TV.

The only thing left to do is for Elon Musk to buy CNN next, and change the name and tagline to: Scumbag TV: TV for scumbags.
