A Handful of 'Ridiculous' CNN Chyrons During Suspicious Package Chaos

All week CNN has been seemingly piling blame on President Trump for the string of suspicious packages that have been delivered to some prominent liberal leaders. It seems every chance the network has, it reminds viewers that the potential victims were all "Trump Targets."

Other headlines were just as egregious.

Still, CNN anchors are defending their network and their colleagues. "Nobody's blaming the president," John King said on his program. Jake Tapper offered a similar observation on Twitter.

Again, though, we have evidence to the contrary. Here was a statement from the CNN chief himself, singling out President Trump and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to suggest their anti-media rhetoric convinced the culprit to mail all those dangerous packages.

So far, suspicious devices have been addressed to the CNN offices and prominent figures and celebrities like President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Robert De Niro, John Brennan, Maxine Waters, James Clapper, and Cory Booker. Thankfully, not one of the 12 suspicious devices has detonated. Trump did tweet something about the mainstream media needing to take responsibility for the current "anger" in this country. But, for what it's worth, he did condemn the dangerous deliveries.

"No nation can succeed that tolerates violence or the threat of violence as a method of political intimidation,” he said at a rally in Wisconsin.
