It is nothing new that CNN is biased and puts out a stream of hate towards our president. But they hit a new low when they went after American Soldiers. American Soldiers put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe.
But apparently, journalists over at CNN feel this is not enough as they went after Trump supporting Troops for getting autographs from Trump.
CNN posted to Twitter about how they felt the defenders of America were out of line.
Video footage and the written report of Trump's visit with service members in Iraq showed signing of hats and a "Trump 2020" patch.
But troops' requests for the autographs could brush up against Department of Defense guidelines for political activities. https://t.co/jUUqF91bcX
As per usual, the bias was strong with the fake news network. CNN had praised Obama for visiting the troops and didn’t try to find code violations to prevent supporters from getting signatures. But this is Trump, so they had to try and find a way to crap on him.
CNN cited a Department of Defense code of conduct violation to try and get these soldiers in trouble.
“Department of Defense guidelines say that “active duty personnel may not engage in partisan political activities and all military personnel should avoid the inference that their political activities imply or appear to imply DoD sponsorship, approval, or endorsement of a political candidate, campaign, or cause.”
They then pulled out an Obama Era Official to back up their claim although like CNN he was silent when Obama did it.
“Retired Rear Adm. John Kirby, a former Obama administration spokesperson and a CNN analyst, said on CNN’s “The Situation Room” on Wednesday that service members having Trump sign the items was inappropriate.
“It is, in fact, a campaign slogan, that is a campaign item, and it is completely inappropriate for the troops to do this,” Kirby said.
Kirby assigned some blame to Trump himself for political activity around the military: “Every time he’s around military audiences, he tends to politicize it, and he brings in complaints and grievances from outside the realm of military policy.”
Sarah Sanders tweeted about the ludicrous attack by CNN.
“CNN will attack anyone who supports President Trump, including the brave men and women of our military who fight every day to protect our freedom.”
She was not alone in her sentiment as many conservatives and sensible people chimed in. But this whole things just goes to show how bad the MSM has become. No longer are they limiting themselves to the president, no they are attacking our troops. Is there anyone that is above their criticism?
