CNN’s Big Soleimani Scoop: Trump Ate Ice Cream After Convoy Strike

Talk of escalating conflict in the Middle
East dominated the news cycle this week as government officials confirmed the death of
Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani in a U.S. airstrike Friday morning in Baghdad. Coming directly on the heels of a year rife
with tension between the U.S. and Iran, a result in part of several breaches in trust
over the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, the unannounced strike sent shock waves throughout the international
community, sparking no shortage of controversy. Unshaken, however, were the upstanding journalists
at CNN, already hard at work behind the scenes attempting to tease out the most elusive and
vital details of the story. And journalist Kaitlan Collins did just that,
all but earning herself a Pulitzer Prize as she revealed astounding intelligence Friday
suggesting President Donald Trump had “dined on ice cream” at Mar-a-Lago while Defense
Department officials confirmed reports of Soleimani’s death. That’s right. Ice cream! What a scoop! Ahem. “As meatloaf and ice cream were served,
the Pentagon confirmed that the US was behind the strikes, the only statement from the administration
throughout the night,” Collins reported. “The scene Friday was similar to the one
after Trump gave the order for American forces to carry out the missile strike on a Syrian
airfield in the spring 2017,” she wrote. “After that strike, Trump went into great
detail about the chocolate cake he had with Chinese President Xi Jinping, who was there
for a summit, when he informed him about the series of tomahawk missiles.” Can you imagine? Our president eating dessert and celebrating
News Years while U.S. Armed Forces carry out the “assassination” of a “revered”
foreign military leader. The only crime here is the fact that Trump’s
exclusive, five-star Palm Beach resort and golf club is serving meatloaf. Otherwise, I fail to see the importance of
these ridiculous details. A (likely unhealthy) fondness for desserts
and comfort food is par for the course with Trump — and the left-wing establishment
media has made positively certain the American people know all about it. As a former member of the conservative “Never
Trump” movement, I can attest that this type of ridiculous, bad-faith reporting keeps
me running back to the president more even than his laundry list of accomplishments. And I imagine that I am not the exception
in this, but the rule. Just take a look at the social media response
to stories like these. Those on the fence, even those willing to
firmly disagree with Trump on key matters of policy come out of the woodwork en masse
to mock or reprove the establishment media when reports like these drop. And yet, these “journalists” cannot seem
to comprehend the fact that repeatedly attempting to pass off these petty attempts to make Trump
look somehow unpresidential as though there were any journalistic integrity behind them
only further endear him to the American people.
