Res ipsa loquitur.
This isn’t news reporting. It isn’t respectful or fair. It’s not even a valid point. That CNN allowed this pure, nasty, trolling tweet to issue under its name makes any defenses of CNN’s objectivity and professionalism ludicrous.
What was the President supposed to do, play the Mozart Requiem and eat bitter herbs?

I don’t even care if he had two scoops.
As an ice cream lover myself, that sounds awesome! I bet it tastes way better than all that crow those clowns at CNN are feasting on.
Brilliant! Bananas Foster!
Check your headline, this is CNN, not CBS. Not that there isn’t plenty to criticize them about either, but let’s criticize them about the right things. BTW, the president’s favorite flavor of ice cream is cherry vanilla, and so what if he was chowing on it as he sent this guy into the next life? He isn’t Jed Bartlett, and he isn’t going to kneel for confession after taking a bad guy out of circulation.
While Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Jr., et al, were “(f)easting on Shrimp Cocktail Canapés and Diet Coke, the WH group watched CNN’s Wolf Blitzer announce the strike.”
I myself am more partial to shrimp cocktail canapés, but I’d never touch a Diet Coke…
At least it wasn’t fava beans with a nice chianti.
The proper response would have been to be somber and solemn, like members of House were after the impeachment vote.
Except CNN accidentally made a whole lot of Americans think “hell yes”.
I read this somewhere else:
When CNN accidentally makes Trump look like a badass….
I’d break a diet if there was really good news. Would they have been happier if it was brie and truffles, or baklava?
What. The. Hell?
I don’t know what it is about Trump that makes journalists get so unhinged.
He doesn’t wear pant suits.
They expected the impact of “Let them eat cake,” but it didn’t quite work out as hoped.
It’s a problem: there’s no path back to normalcy. They know now that they tried to undo a legitimate election, and they know that they tried to overthrow a legitimate government. The only way back is by confession to treason, and their egos won’t allow that.
