To say CNN has been a colossal joke of a news station ever since Donald Trump announced his candidacy for President of the United States would be a massive understatement.
CNN’s biased, anti-Trump analysts have been nothing short of breaking down into tears and attempting to grab for straws that aren’t there, and recklessly perpetuating absurd conspiracy theories and irrational ad hominems to attack President Trump’s character.
But a new head-scratching ridiculous accusation a CNN analyst just said about the Manchester suicide bombing is laughingly absurd.
“Monday as the news developing about the Manchester terror bombing after the completion of an Ariana Grande concert, CNN terrorism analyst Paul Cruickshank laid out for host Anderson Cooper the likelihood that the explosion was the result of a suicide bomber motivated by radical Islamic extremism.
However, Cruickshank did say ‘it must also be noted’ there had been a number of ‘false flag plots’ orchestrated by ‘right-wing extremist’ in Europe.
‘Well, obviously a suicide bomber, that would be the hallmarks of an Islamist terrorist plot attack,’ Cruickshank replied.
‘So, they’ll be looking in that direction tonight if they indeed do confirm there was a suicide bomber involved.
[Three eyewitnesses] interviewed in the last few minutes on BBC Radio talking about what they’re describing as nuts all over the floor.
And that would be consistent with a kind of shrapnel-type of device, which we’ve seen groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS encourage their recruits to build.
So that’s the only way this is pointing tonight. We cannot conclude that for sure at this stage. We are going to have to wait for police to tell us much more in the hours ahead.
‘But given the fact that they’re looking into this real possibility, and it is there would appear some evidence that this was a suicide bombing–that certainly takes you down the Islamist terrorist direction,’ he continued.
‘It must also be noted that in recent months in Europe, there have been a number of false flag plots where right-wing extremists have tried frame Islamists for terrorism.
We have seen that in Germany in recent weeks. But a suicide bomber does take you down the direction of Islamist terror.’”
CNN has always been irresponsible with their insane accusations, but this lie might take the cake.
It would be mind-blowing for any news station to recklessly tout such an absurd lie – until you discover that it’s CNN broadcasting it.
Just look at the lack of evidence in the Trump-Russia investigation, and yet, they keep throwing darts at a dartboard in the dark.
And liberals will heartily eat up these conspiracies because they detest the President just that much.
But while conspiracies are the topic of discussion, here’s one that may show a sign of things to come.
Jack Binstead is a British comedian who pointed out in a tweet that 5 terrorist attacks have occurred on the 22nd day of the month.
Lee Rigby – 22-05-2013
Brussels attack – 22-03-16
Munich attack – 22-07-16
London attack- 22-03-17
Manchester attack- 22-05-17

But more importantly, Cruickshank recklessly cheapens and devalues the respect these victims and their families deserve by proclaiming such lunacy.
And CNN is even worse for being okay with it.
