Viewers of CNN were in for quite a shock recently after the failing “fake news” network decided to try to cover President Donald Trump’s recent arrival in France. Unfortunately for the host, she let something slip that she didn’t exactly mean to say, and the clip is now going viral.
CNN is struggling when it comes to trying to regain credibility and trust with the American people. With their ratings slipping below cartoon reruns shown in the wee hours of the morning, you’d have to be dumb not to know that something was seriously wrong.
Unfortunately for the smug and arrogant anchors of CNN, they’re clueless of this fact and seek to blame “bully” Trump for all their problems. Of course, that’s all fine and good, but when people see that you’re trying to cover your last lie with another lie – especially when you’re in the business of truth – well, you get exactly what’s happening to the leftist news network.
As it turns out, it seems that they’re more than content to continue their downward spiral, and a recent incident proves just that. In fact, it seems that one of their anchors let something slip that’s not only embarrassing and humiliating but downright damaging as they continue to struggle in their efforts to regain any credibility.
According to Fox News, CNN anchor Poppy Harlow was covering Trump’s arrival in France when she mistook The Star-Spangled Banner for the French National Anthem. Apparently, she didn’t recognize our own country’s National Anthem and was forced to correct herself after she was told of the mistake in her earpiece.
… Harlow cut to the scene by saying, “Let’s just listen in to the French national anthem for just a moment.”
It took at least ten seconds before whispering could be heard in the background–presumably a producer who caught Harlow’s error–and Harlow had to correct herself.
“The US–American national anthem–I should say,” she said with a chuckle. “Let’s listen.” [Source: The Daily Caller]
In the footage, President Trump stood and listened to the patriotic song with his hand on his heart as Harlow fumbled over the gaffe. Although the left would have you believe that Trump is making things exponentially and unnecessarily difficult for CNN, this has proven to be the exact opposite.
CNN has a hard enough time keeping egg off their own face without anyone else’s help. After all, a slip of the tongue is one thing, and it’s something that is often quickly corrected. However, when you don’t even recognize your own national anthem, well, it’s safe to say that’s a pretty big problem – especially when you’re constantly bashing someone else’s patriotism and loyalty to our country.
CNN is a joke, and all it took was one man to make that abundantly clear. Although they were able to go consequence-free for years as they bashed Republicans, they’re learning a hard thing about honesty and credibility now. It’s always worth taking a look in the mirror before attacking someone else. CNN is finally being forced to do just that – and I doubt they like the ugly thing they see looking back at them.
