CNN hates Donald Trump.
The network has morphed into a 24/7 anti-Trump propaganda outfit.
But their disdain toward the nation’s 45th President led them to run a report that had viewers accusing them of treason.
Before the inauguration, CNN ran a report fantasizing about what would happen if President-elect Trump and Vice President-elect Pence were killed before they were sworn in.
Every time one of these events takes place, a cabinet official is kept in a secure location in case the unthinkable happens.
Because none of Trump’s cabinet nominees have been sworn in, the “designated survivor” would be an Obama appointee.
CNN ghoulishly reported that should Trump and Pence be killed, an Obama official would assume the presidency.
Many took this as cheerleading for the assassination of Trump as a last-ditch effort to keep any remnants of the Obama administration in power.
Their sickening report included scenes from the ABC show Designated Survivor – where the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development takes over the presidency after the government is decimated in a bombing during the State of the Union – depicting the Capitol building exploding and killing the President.
The Daily Mail reports this is also the place Donald Trump will take the oath of office:
Wednesday’s startling report, titled ‘Disaster could put Obama appointee in Oval Office,’ speculated on what might happen if Trump, Mike Pence and the Congressional leaders were all killed during the ceremony.
During the segment they also used scenes from the ABC show ‘Designated Survivor’, which depicts what would happen if the Capitol building – the venue for Trump’s swearing in – was bombed and the Commander-in-Chief killed.
The report concluded that a Democrat would take the Vice President’s place in the White House in the event of such an attack, worrying some that venomous anti-Trump protesters might attempt a treasonous attack on the event.
Viewers were outraged, and some critics even accused the network of treason for advocating the killing of the President-elect.
The Daily Mail also reports:
Critics suggested that’s exactly what CNN – which was derided as the ‘Clinton News Network’ during the Trump election campaign, and denied questions at his recent press conference – is hoping for.
“Totally not suggesting anything here, huh CNN?” said YouTube user ‘Donnie Brasco,’ who identified himself as one of ‘Les Deplórables.’
Alexa Vasquez said she had flagged the video with YouTube’s complaints department for “inciting violence,” while Uniblonder described the network as “disgusting, traitorous.”
“I flagged this video as dangerous to the President-elect, and that it might foment violence,” agreed ThrummerOfLove.
“Did the same,” said Lemon Goat. “CNN wants it to happen. Wouldn’t be surprised if they pay someone with cash.”
Others noted the outrage and hailstorm of criticism that would have rained down on Fox News had they run a similar segment about Barack Obama in 2009.
But because the subject was Trump, the so-called “mainstream” media turned a blind eye to CNN cheering for the killing of Donald Trump.
