President Donald J. Trump has barely been in office 3 days and the left is already trying to question his legitimacy to occupy the White House.
In what may be one of the most unintentionally funny lines we’ve heard in a long time, CNN President Jeff Zuckerberg, responding to Donald Trump’s accusations that the network is “fake news,” said “I think our credibility is higher than ever.”
“It doesn’t worry me that Donald Trump hasn’t done an interview with CNN in eight months,” Zuckerberg claimed. “I think our credibility is higher than ever, and our viewership is higher than ever, and our reporting is as strong as ever.”
With that in mind, here is an example of what he and other liberals think is ‘credible.’
In what can only be described as a bizarre report, CNN ran a segment about what would happen if President-elect Trump was killed before or during his inauguration, either by terrorist attack or assassination attempt.
This is insane!

How does a report like this get past the “credible” production team at CNN?
First off, the scenario has such a miniscule chance of occurring, that it can’t possibly be considered newsworthy. So why run with it?
At least one Congressman saw the segment, and is not happy:
Not just #FakeNews—it’s dangerous messaging.
CNN: Assassinating Trump Could Keep Obama Administration in Power https://t.co/MyNuJGdQxg
— Rep. Steven Smith (@RepStevenSmith) January 19, 2017
The violent left doesn’t need any encouragement. Trump has been receiving a large number of death threats – including a Clinton family friend who was arrested after he threatened to assassinate Trump at the inauguration.
Don’t think they’re crazy enough to do anything? They’re setting things – and themselves – on fire, because they’re so distraught over the thought of a President Trump.
Not exactly playing with a full deck. But definitely a good idea to make this suggestion, eh CNN?
