If President Donald Trump’s goal was to make media heads explode with his tweet of a GIF showing him bodyslamming CNN, mission accomplished.
The same Democrat Media Complex that either soft-pedaled or outright defended leftist “comedian” Kathy Griffin holding up a realistic, bloodied head of the president as if she’d just cut his head off ISIS-style, are completely off their rockers over this tweet from Trump on Sunday:

Progressive leftist lesbian commentator Sally Kohn, also a contributor to the Daily Beast, came unglued that Trump’s tweet had reached a new level of hate. This is the same Sally Kohn who just days ago accused Speaker of the House [score]Paul Ryan[/score] of being a mass murderer:

In an overly heated exchange with Trump loyalist Kayleigh McEnany in which Kohn looked so filled with hate that she was about to go all WWE for real, an outraged Kohn expressed disbelief that McEnany downplayed Trump’s tweet as a joke, which it obviously was, even some will consider it in poor taste or beneath the office of the presidency.
So here’s my unfiltered opinion of all this. No, Trump should not have tweeted this because it doesn’t really help him, his presidency, or help further his agenda. It’s an unnecessary distraction from real issues. Yes, I’m enjoying watching cultural Marxists like Sally Kohn’s head explode (figuratively, of course). Yes, CNN and the rest of the Democrat Media Complex deserve this kind of mockery — it’s been a long time coming. I have zero sympathies for them as they are leaders in real violent rhetoric and violent imagery. No, I’m not shocked or outraged by the tweet coming from a former reality TV actor — he is who he is and is not conventional.
But I’m old enough to remember Obama telling his minions to “bring a gun to a knife fight,” and the media yawned. The whole thing is a hot mess. Yes, it would be great if Trump were more presidential on a consistent basis. His freedom rally speech on Saturday was excellent.
I’m also old enough to remember the media using George W. Bush as a punching bag and many Republicans bewildered that he would never fight back. Well, that problem is solved. Trump will not allow the media to pummel him unfairly (Trump-Russia collusion nonsense) without responding — and you can expect his response to be completely over the top.
And isn’t it interesting that Sally Kohn and their ilk expressed little to no outrage over real violence, like the communist [score]Bernie Sanders[/score] campaign worker who attempted a mass assassination — a progressive terrorist attack against Republican members of Congress just weeks ago and almost killed Congressman [score]Steve Scalise[/score].
Sorry, Sally Kohn, you don’t get to claim the moral high ground here or any place else for that matter. You and your team are getting a bitter taste of your own medicine. I’m sure it tastes awful, but drink up. Civility is a two-way street. Stop with your moral preaching until you clean up your own house.
