CNN’s Chris Cillizza Calls Trump’s References To ‘Riots’ A Show Desperation; Tweet Features Building Burning In The Background
CNN’s Editor-At-Large Chris Cillizza once again demonstrated how delusional the radical left-wing mainstream media apparatus is after tweeting out a piece that calls President Trump desperate for calling the unrest happening in our nation “riots” rather than “protests.”
You see, the article he shared, which he himself penned, showed a building burning in the background, which more or less proves Trump’s point about these not being protests, but riots intended to cause chaos.
CNN recently caught a lot of flack for having a segment on the network where a reporter was on the scene during just such a riot, building burning and all kinds of madness unfolding behind him, while the caption read “fiery, but mostly peaceful protests.”
Here’s more from The Daily Wire:
“Trump’s efforts to label what is happening in major cities as ‘riots’ speaks at least somewhat to his desperation, politically speaking, at the moment,” writes Cillizza.
Included at the top of his column, however, was a photo of a building on fire in Kenosha, Wisconsin, which was ravaged in the days following the shooting of Jacob Blake by police last Sunday.

While it’s unlikely Cillizza hand-picked the photo for the column himself, the bizarre spectacle echoes a similar incident from last week in which a CNN television chyron referred to the Tuesday night unrest in Kenosha as “fiery but mostly peaceful,” all the while a field reporter was standing in front of a large fire.
You cannot make this up… A CNN reporter is standing in front of a building engulfed in flames and CNN's chyron reads:

It seems to me that CNN are the ones who are desperate. They are going to absurd lengths to try and brainwash the viewing audience that these “events” are peaceful protests, despite looting, violence, and all sorts of chaos happening right on camera.
You’d have to be a total fool to buy any of what these folks are selling. Unfortunately, there are many such individuals out there who are weak-minded, falling for the lies hook, line, and sinker.
