BOTTOM OF THE BARREL: CNN Hires ELMO As A Political Commentator….
Wow, by the time this gets over with they are going to have the guy that played Goldie Wilson in Back to the Future on to give his two cents as a political analyst because he once played a guy that was running for mayor in a movie. I hate to say that CNN is scraping the bottom of the barrel….
Liberal cable news channel CNN has come under fire for not only pushing fake news but also substituting anti-Trump opinion for hard news. With viewership down and public trust at an all time low, the network took a bold move to restore faith by hiring a Muppet to provide some foreign policy analysis.
I’m not kidding about this: Elmo was on CNN with commentary on Trump’s immigration policies.
On Monday CNN held a panel discussion about the Supreme Court restoring most of President Trump’s travel ban on certain terrorist-sponsoring nations. So far so good. This is a legitimate thing to talk about and a newsworthy subject. Unfortunately, that panel included a Sesame Street character so their credibility took a nose-dive.
Do yourself a favor and watch this video. CNN report Clarissa Ward interviews Elmo like he’s a real person and it couldn’t be any more hilarious if it tried. Elmo talks about how he went to a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan and learned that everyone is the same.
“Did you find that the Syrian little girls and little boys were a lot like your friends here in America?” Ward asked the Muppet.
“Yeah, they really were. It was very interesting because they like to play and learn just like Elmo and all of his friends at Sesame Street,” replied Elmo.
You see, we should let all people from the Middle East into out country without vetting them because Elmo says so. In case your heartstrings haven’t yet been tugged, Elmo tried to yank them some more:
“Elmo thinks it’s important to know that everybody is the same deep down and that’s very important,” Elmo said.
Even those Muslims who kill innocent people in the name of their religion? Are they the same as everyone else deep down? What about the ones who behead people or mutilate the genitals of little girls?
