Oh to work at CNN this week. Rather an embarrassing affair. At least you’re not Van Jones. Put that in your happy hooka and smoke it. Becuase Project Veritas, after busting a CNN producer yesterday who admitted “The Trump-Russia story is for ratings” now has Van Jones admitting “The Russia story is a nothing burger.”
Jones is one of CNN’s most prominent political commentators, and has appeared on CNN in the past attacking President Trump for his “Putin relationship.”
On December 18, 2016 Jones said: “Other Presidents tried to say nice things about the Russians — not in the face of an active attack on the country!”
To be fair, as far as I know, Van Jones hasn’t been waving the flag of “TRUMP IS RUSSIAN” as heatedly as some of his CNN comrades. The issue here is CNN staff, now a commentator, find the narrative that CNN is pushing as BS. Goes to relevance, your honor.
You know and I know CNN is as objective as Ebola. The TRUMP IS A RUSSIAN PLANT OMG story has always been predicated on nothing. It’s a tinfoil hat conspiracy in a microwave. Set on high. The media, with no real proof of any kind of Russian-Trump collusion, has greatly damaged its own reputation with the American people. Not helped by galactic morons like Chris Cuomo who actually demanded evidence of no evidence. A crap show for critically thinking humanoids everywhere. An inspiration for single-celled amoebas with career aspirations greater than a straw-bender.
Well, now we have a CNN commentator, not a behind the scenes producer, admitting TRUMP IS PUTIN OMG is a steaming pile of dino droppings.
If the TRUMP IS A MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE OMG conspiracy had been a passing comment on CNN, Van Jones admitting as much would be a “nothing burger.” To our (now) delicious delight, CNN made the Trump-Russia story their main entree for breakfast, lunch, dinner, second breakfast, afternoon tea and supper. Turns out a dish served daily doesn’t taste as scrumptious when it’s regurgitated for all to see.
Think CNN is done with Trump-Russia? Or is this just a speed bump (that’s actually a body) on their road to irrelevance?
