The following article, CNN’s Chris Cillizza Says References Made By Trump To ‘Riots’ Reveals Desperation, Yet There’s A Building Burning In His Tweet, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Chris Cillizza is the Editor-At-Large over at CNN, and it seems that he’s very much on board with the whole “slam President Trump all day, every day” mission that his “news organization” has adopted over the last several years.
CNN has taken quite a beating from the Trump administration and from anyone who is able to see clearly that the network is nothing but a left-wing propaganda machine. The latest hits its taken have to do with the the caption “fiery, but mostly peaceful protest” that ran across video of Kenosha burning to the ground.
Cillizza wrote a piece on Sunday evening that criticized President Trump’s choice to refer to the unrest across our country as “riots” instead of “protests,” saying that doing so was a sign of political desperation.
Here’s more from Daily Wire:
“Trump’s efforts to label what is happening in major cities as ‘riots’ speaks at least somewhat to his desperation, politically speaking, at the moment,” writes Cillizza.
Included at the top of his column, however, was a photo of a building on fire in Kenosha, Wisconsin, which was ravaged in the days following the shooting of Jacob Blake by police last Sunday.

While it’s unlikely Cillizza hand-picked the photo for the column himself, the bizarre spectacle echoes a similar incident from last week in which a CNN television chyron referred to the Tuesday night unrest in Kenosha as “fiery but mostly peaceful,” all the while a field reporter was standing in front of a large fire.
You cannot make this up… A CNN reporter is standing in front of a building engulfed in flames and CNN's chyron reads:

True desperation is when you absolutely refuse to acknowledge the reality of what is happening in your city because to do so would mean that you would have to abandon your narrative and mission to ruin the current president.
CNN has excelled at that. It’s disturbing to see how far these folks are willing to go in order to disconnect with reality and attempt to brainwash people into believing the anti-Trump narratives they push on a regular basis.
