CNN Headline: Trump Backs Accused Child Molester

When the above image starting flying around Twitter tonight, I thought it had to be faked. But no, that’s a real actual totally out of fucks to give headline from CNN’s chyron writer, who was just repeating what the network’s panelists have been saying.

CNN political director David Chalian condemned President Trump on Tuesday for not taking a stand against Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. “The president of the United States would like to see an accused child molester be elected senator from Alabama,” Chalian said in reference to remarks Trump made earlier in the day. Trump’s comments immediately received criticism and made headlines with many in the media calling the remarks a de facto endorsement.
