CNN has devolved into nothing more than an anti-Trump channel.
The network traded any shred of credibility it had to become a wing of #TheResistance.
And now CNN’s coverage of one deadly outbreak will have you furious.
The coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China has spread across the expansive country and is responsible for at least 425 deaths.
China is being cagey about the outbreak, so the number could be much higher.
And that’s only one country.
The coronavirus has spread to other countries, including 11 confirmed cases in the United States.
World health officials are scrambling to mitigate the damage done by the illness.
In the face of this scary pandemic, CNN has far less trivial things on its mind.
Commenting on a photograph of Trump officials convening to tackle the threat of the coronavirus, one CNN writer penned an entire piece on the lack of diversity in the picture.
CNN contributor Brandon Tensley commented on a side-by-side picture of the Trump team and a 2014 picture of the Obama administration team strategizing on the Ebola virus.
Tensley wrote, “Who are these experts? They’re largely the same sort of white men (and a couple [of] women on the sidelines) who’ve dominated the Trump administration from the very beginning.”
This line of thinking is insidious.
A virus with a mortality rate as high as 4% is sweeping across Asia.
The race and gender of the people fighting to stop it should matter to exactly no one.
But that’s not the way leftists think because they’ve been brainwashed into looking at nothing but disparities among groups.
Tensley continued, “By contrast, former President Barack Obama’s circle of advisers in the face of the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa was hardly so monochromatic…Neither was it so abysmal in terms of gender diversity. (Of course, to contextualize, Obama’s administration, on the whole, was far more diverse than Trump’s.)”
Leftists exalt radical egalitarianism as the highest virtue, and nothing else matters, but even that is a lie.
The game that this CNN writer is playing is a trick leftists have been pulling for decades.
They don’t care about “diverse” people if their opinions don’t align with the left.
Trump was given no credit for naming Betsy DeVos Secretary of Education, Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Stephanie Grisham as Press Secretaries, Nikki Haley as UN Ambassador, Ben Carson as HUD Secretary, or Gina Haspel as CIA Director, among others.
In fact, these members of the administration have arguably been attacked more viciously than any other cabinet members.
Leftists love diversity until diversity of thought comes into play.
That CNN is more concerned with ticking off boxes than an outbreak that has already triggered multiple quarantines shows how deranged the left has become.
These people can’t be trusted with power, and they can’t be counted on to present you with the truth.
Articles like this CNN tripe are precisely why Trump calls them the enemy of the American people.
