Basically Cape Cod is the new Amity Island. Literally.

Tue, 08/22/2017 - 17:57

Thanks in large part to the resurgence of the grey seal population in the area, great whites sharks have returned to the waters off of Cape Cod, MA. Which is all fun and games until the fish made famous by the “Jaws” movie franchise decided to eat a seal just inches away from the beach. Check it out:

This is pretty much our reaction as well:

A shark in Cape Cod attacked a seal only a few feet away from swimmers. You have to see this video to believe it:

— Howie Carr (@HowieCarrShow) August 22, 2017

Full video available here.

These encounters have been happening all summer long, too. Like this airborne great white that stole a fish:

‘Top notch trolling’ from Tucker Carlson scores a direct hit on clueless reporters

Tue, 08/22/2017 - 13:23

In what CNN’s Brian Stelter called “top notch trolling,” Tucker Carlson joked on show last night that President Trump looking at the eclipse without protective eyewear was “perhaps the most impressive thing any president has ever done.”

Tucker: Trump looking at eclipse w/out eyewear was "perhaps the most impressive thing any president has ever done."

— Andrew Kirell (@AndrewKirell) August 22, 2017

But not every member of the MSM got the joke:

So are journalists pretending not to understand Tucker's ridiculously obvious joke or are they really that stupid? I honestly don't know.

— Mollie (@MZHemingway) August 22, 2017

Top-notch trolling by @TuckerCarlson. I'm afraid some folks fell for it…

— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) August 22, 2017

Nope. To many in the media, Carlson was serious:

Parody meets reality on Tucker Carlson
"He looked at the sun without any glasses. Perhaps the most impressive thing any president has done."

— Nathan McDermott (@natemcdermott) August 22, 2017

Tucker is the Onion in human form.

Fox News is so here for Trump that staring at the sun is "perhaps the most impressive thing any president has done," and not, ya know, dumb.

WHOA: Geraldo Rivera BLASTS Brian Stelter in back-and-forth over CNN’s attacks on Trump’s mental health

Tue, 08/22/2017 - 13:11

CNN hates Trump so much they’ve built a whole conspiracy theory around his mental health. Think about that for a minute, he’s driven them SO CRAZY they think HE’S crazy …

Project much, CNN?

Led by @brianstelter the #CNN brain trust has taken up the banner of the furthest left @realDonaldTrump is not just wrong-he's a mental case

— Geraldo Rivera (@GeraldoRivera) August 21, 2017

It is rather embarrassing and reeks of desperation to pretend the president is a loon. But again this is CNN we’re talking about and they’re not exactly known for integrity and objectivity.

Brian seems a little defensive, no?

No, @GeraldoRivera, I never called Trump a "mental case." I asked questions. Here's the transcript of Sunday's show:

— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) August 21, 2017

No, he just called his mental health into question and then waited for his viewers and followers to make the ‘diagnosis.’

I watched his show. Not once did he or the guest's say he was a nut case. On that note Trump is truly a fkn nut case. I said it.

— deborah (@deborahc613) August 21, 2017

See what we mean? Give people JUST enough conspiracy and they’ll connect the dots themselves.

I said some journos and many other folks are worried about Trump's fitness. And that's a fact. "Is he suffering from some kind of illness?"

— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) August 21, 2017

Those other faceless journos and folks.

Don’cha love it when the media uses anonymous sources?

Why not the questions about Hillarys health when running?how many times did you run the video of her collapsing.

— make it snappy (@nscrowba) August 21, 2017

Well that would have been unfair and sexist and stuff.

Shame on you for even asking! *eye roll*

Chelsea Clinton RIPS The Daily Caller over Barron Trump column

Tue, 08/22/2017 - 12:57

The Daily Caller published a rather strange and out-of-left field attack on Barron Trump on Monday criticizing, of all things, the way the 11-year-old dresses when returning from a vacation:

It’s High Time Barron Trump Starts Dressing Like He’s In the White House

— The Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) August 21, 2017


C'mon @DailyCaller — picking on a child? Was your website hacked?

— toddstarnes (@toddstarnes) August 22, 2017

What was the point of this?

And from The Daily Caller of all places:

A shameful attack on the president’s 11-year-old son by the deplorable left-wing media–oh, wait.

— Frank Luntz (@FrankLuntz) August 22, 2017

Here’s Chelsea Clinton’s reaction to it:

It's high time the media & everyone leave Barron Trump alone & let him have the private childhood he deserves

— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) August 21, 2017

She’s right, and we don’t agree with her often. Leave. Barron. Alone.

Agree 100%. And while we're at it, I wish some people would stop alluding to harm against administration figures. We're better than that.

FRY ‘EM LIKE BACON: The Economist gets snarked off Twitter for claim BLM doesn’t promote hate

Tue, 08/22/2017 - 12:44

Remember when BLM called for dead cops? Yeah, we do too.

Gosh, call us crazy but that seems like promoting hatred for one group of specific individuals.

You can agree or disagree with BLM’s platform, but nothing in it promotes hatred of any race or group

— The Economist (@TheEconomist) August 22, 2017

From The Economist:

Richard Cohen, who heads the SPLC, defines hate groups as “those that vilify entire groups of people based on immutable characteristics such as race or ethnicity”. BLM does not fit the bill: it welcomes white supporters, has condemned violence and addresses structural racial inequities. Jacob Levy, a political philosopher, argues that BLM is “one of the most significant political mobilisations in defence of freedom” in decades.

Oh well if the SPLC says so …

And we get it, they are desperate to pretend progressive movements like BLM aren’t as bad as those mean ol’ Nazis, but sorry folks … chanting for dead cops is pretty damn hateful.

"Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon"… "what do we want? Dead cops, when do we want them? Now!" Nope, no hate in those chants

— Dan Wright (@MadFiest) August 22, 2017

I'm so old that I remember when BLM activists tried to burn a white man alive at a Charlotte, NC protest.

— Bill Sanderson (@BanCollectivism) August 22, 2017

"What do we want … DEAD COPS !!"

— Crazy Ivan (@oldgorky) August 22, 2017

They didn’t mean dead dead, just dead. No?

At best, this is disingenuous narrative pushing, at worst, it is disingenuous narrative pushing that is a flat out lie. #AllHateSucks

— G (@TCC_Grouchy) August 22, 2017

How DARE you admit all hate sucks? That makes you a Nazi sympathizer ya’ know.


— ResistanceisFewtile (@burlyg8r) August 22, 2017

Awww but they claim the guy who did this wasn’t part of BLM, although we all know he was.

From The New York Times:

During the standoff, Mr. Johnson, who was black, told police negotiators that “he was upset about Black Lives Matter,” Chief Brown said. “He said he was upset about the recent police shootings. The suspect said he was upset at white people. The suspect stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”

But keep telling us BLM isn’t a hate group.

The Ministry of Truth has spoken

— Beaker (@PolyfoamPontiff) August 22, 2017

Dead cops, look at Charlotte- tried to throw a reporter into the fire- beat a working guy going to his car- not violent?

— Grateful Mom (@mom_grateful) August 22, 2017

But THAT’S not hate. *eye roll*

Meet the alt-left: Vandals smash Christopher Columbus monument in name of racial, economic justice

Mon, 08/21/2017 - 20:28

Please … it was cute and all when CNN announced that “alt-left” was just an insult and a “made-up term,” but let’s be serious for a minute. As many suggested, perhaps CNN was just admitting that the mainstream left is so far out there at this point there’s no room for an “alt” version.

As Twitchy noted, it wasn’t long after a college student came forward in a mob toppling of a Confederate statue in Durham, N.C., that her comrades from the Workers World Party were on hand with preprinted “Smash White Supremacy” signs.

So, sure, while those on the left perpetuate the fiction that there are only two sides — Nazis and everyone who isn’t a Nazi — the communists have made it a point to be at every protest, everywhere. If you don’t believe us, look at the photos; in particular, look at the URLs printed on the bottom of the biggest banners.

So it’s zero surprise to see that someone — someone with a very “white-sounding voice,” if you’ll pardon the assumption — captured video of himself and a comrade smashing a monument to “genocidal terrorist” Christopher Columbus in Baltimore.

Someone destroyed Baltimore's 200 year-old monument to Christopher Columbus with a sledgehammer this morning.

— The Daily Signal (@DailySignal) August 21, 2017

Police in NE #Baltimore where Christopher Columbus monument was damaged. Protesters posted video of it being vandalized @cbsbaltimore

— Rick Ritter (@RickRitterWJZ) August 21, 2017

Yes, the city did remove four Confederate statues literally in the dead of night, so whoever this is had to settle for smashing Columbus, but he made the most of it with a revised script.

Last night, activists in Baltimore took a sledgehammer to the oldest Christopher Columbus monument in the US. Then they uploaded this video:

— Jack Smith IV (@JackSmithIV) August 21, 2017

(Skip to 1:15 if you want to see them sledge open a 200-year-old monument)

— Jack Smith IV (@JackSmithIV) August 21, 2017

It’s tempting to skip forward, but really, stay for the whole two minutes. There’s narration, subtitles, and even a reading list that scrolls by at the end, along with a list of “economic justice” organizations.

Why the hood? Step out of the darkness. Be proud!

— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) August 21, 2017

The black hoodie is sort of their uniform, see. It’s been a staple of the antifa (the movement politically woke actress Alyssa Milano claims not to have heard of) for a while now; check out the May Day riot in Portland, or the vandalizing of the campus and city of Berkeley.

Some losers in Baltimore vandalize 200 hundred year old Christopher Columbus monument. Who does this help? No one. This mess needs to stop.

— Melissa Holland (@tweetsbymissy) August 21, 2017

These people are truly insane beyond imagination indoctrinated by the left.

— vic barnett (@vicbar58) August 21, 2017

We told you it wouldn't end with Confederate monuments. This is an all out war on our history as a nation. These terrorists must be stopped.

— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) August 21, 2017

This would make an incredibly effective political ad for the GOP.

— Damon Linker (@DamonLinker) August 21, 2017

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the “alt-left” that doesn’t exist, OK? Unless, of course, you’re comparing them to the soldiers who stormed Normandy on D-Day.

Let's not forget

— Christopher C. Cuomo (@ChrisCuomo) August 16, 2017

Let’s not forget after all the statues have been smashed — except for that statue of Lenin in Seattle, of course — where it all started, and who was defending it.

Valerie Plame Wilson just $1 billion short of GoFundMe goal to buy Twitter, ban Trump, save world

Mon, 08/21/2017 - 19:34

There are plenty of conservatives and Republicans — #NeverTrump and MAGA alike — who think it would be best if President Trump eased up on the tweeting. They aren’t to be confused, though, with those who have argued that Twitter should ban Trump’s personal @realDonaldTrump account because of all the “hate tweets” it generates.

Then there’s the capitalist solution proposed by former covert CIA ops officer and 16th minute of fame seeker Valerie Plame Wilson. We missed the kickoff of her #BuyTwitter #Ban Trump GoFundMe effort, but now that it’s been live for five days, we can announced that she’s just $999,997,000 shy of her fundraising goal to purchase Twitter and kick Trump off the service.

If @Twitter executives won’t shut down Trump’s violence and hate, then it's up to us. #BuyTwitter #BanTrump

— Valerie Plame Wilson (@ValeriePlame) August 18, 2017

Wilson’s pitch that’s raking in the cash:

Donald Trump has done a lot of horrible things on Twitter. From emboldening white supremacists to promoting violence against journalists, his tweets damage the country and put people in harm’s way. But threatening actual nuclear war with North Korea takes it to a dangerous new level.

It’s time to shut him down. The bad news is Twitter has ignored growing calls to enforce their own community standards and delete Trump’s account. The good news is we can make that decision for them.

A billion dollars would buy a controlling interest in Twitter — “a small price to pay to take away Trump’s most powerful megaphone and prevent a horrific nuclear war.”

@realDonaldTrump’s tweets put lives at risk. Let’s #BuyTwitter and shut him down.

— Valerie Plame Wilson (@ValeriePlame) August 19, 2017

Is this the best/worst GoFundMe campaign since Jill Stein used the service to crowdfund recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania?

@iamjohnoliver: "When Twitter was invented, I bet they didn’t imagine it'd lead to nuclear armageddon." #BuyTwitter

— Valerie Plame Wilson (@ValeriePlame) August 21, 2017

Straightforward from here:

  1. Raise a billion dollars and buy shares of Twitter
  2. Ban Donald Trump from using Twitter
  3. ???
  4. Avert nuclear war with North Korea

Plame Wilson really ought to add that banning Trump from Twitter could also save Florida and several costal cities from being submerged as the polar ice caps melt; that should bring in a few extra bucks.

OWNED: Alyssa Milano claims she didn’t know what AntiFa was, gets SCHOOLED by Doc Thompson

Mon, 08/21/2017 - 12:34

As Twitchy readers know, Alyssa Milano was calling for AntiFa to stay peaceful during the Boston riot … err … protest on Saturday.

Boston! Please remember the nazis want this to get violent so they can say the "alt-left" are the bad guys. Please stay peaceful.

— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) August 19, 2017

This seems an odd tweet to us; don’t be the bad guys the ‘Nazis’ want them to be? Well the Nazis didn’t even show up, AntiFa did, and they threw rocks and urine at cops.

Gosh, you’d think Alyssa would WANT there to be a distinction between mainstream Left and the alt-Left.

So @Alyssa_Milano sides with the #Communists not the #Nazis! Got it!

It's nice to know who is playing for each team!

— Doc Thompson (@DocThompsonShow) August 20, 2017

Uh-oh, Doc’s got a point – there really are no good guys when Commies and Nazis are fighting.

Thanks for the QT, Doc. You're bringing visibility to a noble message.

— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) August 20, 2017

Right. A noble yet clueless message.

It's admirable that you admit your support for the #Communists!
Many will not. Thank you!

— Doc Thompson (@DocThompsonShow) August 20, 2017


You seem to be smarter than to accuse me of untruths. But if it makes you feel bigger to label me for doing the right thing, go for it.

— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) August 20, 2017

Says the gal labeling the Right as Nazis.


#antifa = #Communists
I'm sorry if I misunderstood your position.

I welcome & would appreciate a clarification!

— Doc Thompson (@DocThompsonShow) August 20, 2017

AntiFa = thugs.

Honestly, had no clue who Antifa was until this morning. It seems to be the alt rights new messaging to marry the left to them.

— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) August 20, 2017

WAIT WAIT WAIT … Alyssa had no idea what AntiFa was? And now she’s claiming the Right is trying to marry them to the Left, but up there she denied there being an alt-Left?

Did we read that right?

Unfortunately, some liberals are siding with them because they agree with 'some' of their ideas.
but they are the violent left.

— Doc Thompson (@DocThompsonShow) August 20, 2017

Hence the alt-left.

You’re welcome.

Interestingly enough, Doc and Alyssa ended this back-and-forth on a friendly note, with Alyssa asking Doc to submit a piece for her site which is ironically called patriot not partisan or something.

Which would be ‘noble’ as she said earlier in the conversation if she weren’t herself incredibly partisan.

Hey @SpeakerRyan! Did you see #TrumpResign is trending 3rd on Twitter? That can't be good for the @GOP.

Are reporters being unfair to Trump re. USS John S. McCain ‘that’s too bad’ comment? Looks like it…

Mon, 08/21/2017 - 03:15

The guided missile destroyer USS John. S. McCain was involved in a collision with another ship near Singapore tonight (EDT) with reports of sailors missing and injured:

Guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain (DDG 56) has collided with a merchant vessel east of Straits of Malacca and #Singapore.

— Steve Herman (@W7VOA) August 20, 2017

Update on #USSJohnSMcCain collision via @US7thFleet: 10 Sailors missing, 5 injured.

— U.S. Pacific Fleet (@USPacificFleet) August 21, 2017

Photos of the ship show a large hole on its port side:

#Malaysia navy photo shows large hole at waterline and USS John S. McCain riding low.

— Steve Herman (@W7VOA) August 21, 2017

The pool report stated that President Trump’s response to a shouted question on the collision was, “that’s too bad”:

"That's too bad"

— Matthew Yglesias (@mattyglesias) August 21, 2017

But it’s not clear if the president had been fully briefed at the time of the question.

VOA’s Steve Herman tweeted that the reporters were not aware of the “missing and injured sailors” when the question was asked:

Unclear whether @POTUS had been informed of missing and injured sailors when he responded. Media wasn't aware of that info at the time.

— Steve Herman (@W7VOA) August 21, 2017

Brian Stelter adds:

"That's too bad" is getting a lot of pickup tonight. So I looked at the timeline. As Maggie said, it's possible Trump hadn't been briefed.…

— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) August 21, 2017

And we don’t have audio or video of the quote:

Reading the phrase "That's too bad," is a lot different than hearing it, and/or watching it. All kinds of different emphases possible.

— Matt Welch (@MattWelch) August 21, 2017

But the fact that we don’t really know what President Trump knew at the time of his answer isn’t stopping the blue-checkmark brigade from doing its thing:

Trump's response to 5 sailors injured, 10 missing after USS John S. McCain collides w/ a merchant ship:

"That's too bad."


— Amy Siskind (@Amy_Siskind) August 21, 2017

Imagine the reaction if Obama, Bush, Clinton said "that's too bad" in response to missing soldiers on a military vessel.

— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) August 21, 2017

Five U.S. sailors injured, 10 missing.

Trump: "That's too bad."

If that were Obama's reaction, Fox News would scandalize it for a month.

— Matt Fuller (@MEPFuller) August 21, 2017

This is a joke. "That's too bad" is more for your golf game not missing sailors @POTUS!

Blonde women in Trump gear TRIGGER students at Howard University

Sun, 08/20/2017 - 22:32

A group of white women, some of whom were wearing Trump gear, triggered the Howard University community over the weekend when they dared attempt to eat lunch in the school’s cafeteria, according to posts on Twitter:

Pictures of the women inside of the dining hall were shared on Twitter by Howard University students who “don’t stand with trump”:

Right here in Annex white people gettin real bold we don't stand w trump

— Brit (@britnianise) August 19, 2017

Jamilah Lemieux thought campus police should be involved:

Howard is a private institution and I've seen folks removed for campus for less. What did campus police do? This is unacceptable.

— Jamilah Lemieux (@JamilahLemieux) August 20, 2017

Wow. Even the Twitter account for the school’s dining services weighed in on the need for students to have “safe & comfortable” dining spaces:

We will take any action necessary to ensure that HU students feel safe& comfortable in our dining spaces. This group is no longer on campus.

— HUDining (@HUdining) August 19, 2017

The university responded as well, in 10 tweets:

If not letting people get a meal because you don’t agree with their shirt is “all that is right about America,” then we have problems.

WATCH: The BEST moment of the India-China border brawl happens at the 0:19 mark

Sun, 08/20/2017 - 21:21

There’s a video going around showing a border clash between Indian and Chinese troops from last week near Pangong Lake in the Himalayas. We have no idea which side is which in the video below, but it’s clear the two sides are trading blows and throwing rocks at each other.

But the real hero of the battle comes at the 0:19 second mark. Keep your eye on the area we’ve highlighted below:

Now watch:

CORRECTION TIME: Joe Scarborough, Ana Navarro and many others share old Sebastian Gorka story that says he was fired

Sun, 08/20/2017 - 21:02

Members of the blue-checkmark brigade are sharing an old AP story from May 1 titled, “Trump adviser Sebastian Gorka expected to leave White House, official says.”

Well, those officials were wrong back in May and it’s pretty careless of all these folks to share such an out-of-date article. Time for some corrections:

If true, and Gorka's leaving, Kelly's doing a good job clearing a bunch of dangerous crazies from the WH…except 1.

Seriously? An Obamacare architect is worried that Trump will trigger a healthcare ‘crisis’

Sun, 08/20/2017 - 20:59

Former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius joined other former HHS heads in warning President Trump to be careful and not trigger a healthcare “new crisis.”

Sort of laughable when you consider that Sebelius had a major role in the creation of this monstrosity.

Flashback:  Sebelius had to resign in 2014 because her agency couldn’t even get the Obamacare website to function properly. But yeah, she’s probably got all the answers.

Obama DHS Sec. Jeh Johnson steps on proverbial rake while discussing Confederate statues

Meet the Press guest defends Antifa: ‘When pushed, violence is a legitimate response’

Sun, 08/20/2017 - 20:37

On Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” Mark Bray, author of “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook” debated Richard Cohen of the Southern Poverty Law center on Antifa’s violent tactics in Charlottesville, VA. Bray was all for it:

.@Mark__Bray: "When pushed, violence is a legitimate response" to white supremacy. #MTP

— Meet the Press (@MeetThePress) August 20, 2017

Whereas Cohen pointed out the obvious on why Bray defense of violence against speech you don’t like is really, really bad:

.@splcenter's Richard Cohen says violence as a response to violence is "likely to lead to a terrible spiral." #MTP

— Meet the Press (@MeetThePress) August 20, 2017

Although Cohen did miss a little bit of the violence in Boston which was directed mostly at cops:

.@splcenter's Cohen says peaceful protests in Boston were "a much stronger response to white supremacy than clubs and guns." #MTP

— Meet the Press (@MeetThePress) August 20, 2017

Does Bray endorse throwing bottles of urine at cops as self-defense, because that’s what really happened in Boston as no white supremacists even showed up:

"A lot of people are under attack and they need to be able to defend themselves," @Mark__Bray says in support of Antifa movement. #MTP

— Meet the Press (@MeetThePress) August 20, 2017

Cohen even blamed Antifa for its role in what happened in Charlottesville:

Cohen: "To some degree, there was a lot of ugliness the Antifa brought there," on Charlottesville violence. #MTP

— Meet the Press (@MeetThePress) August 20, 2017

But Bray was undeterred:

.@Mark__Bray responds: "Facism cannot be defeated by speech." #MTP

‘Historians will weep and rage’: The Left is NOT happy about the committee Trump just disbanded

Sun, 08/20/2017 - 19:08

It was all fun and games for the Left last week when President Trump was disbanding his economic committees, but they are not pleased at all about the fact that he just told a federal advisory committee on climate change to take a hike as well.

The Trump administration just disbanded a federal advisory committee on climate change

So that’s that.

After Jim Acosta whines about Trump’s ‘agitators’ tweet, Chet Cannon’s GIF takedown is mostly peaceful

Sun, 08/20/2017 - 01:39

Twitchy readers on Saturday might already have heard about the police asking protesters in Boston not to throw urine, or bottles, or rocks at police officers. That wasn’t even the first report of agitators clashing with police in the streets of Boston: a video capture from MSNBC at 1:37 p.m. Eastern shows an aerial view of some of the mayhem.

Unfortunately, violence against police at a “far-right” rally that drew about 10 people and tens of thousands of counter-protesters doesn’t really fit the narrative. Reporters on the ground were having a pretty nice day, but after police started tweeting about being the target of urine bombs, the hard work of restoring the narrative kicked in.

Many in the crowd did not seem fond of the police, but to characterize the entire rally this way is incorrect. It was peaceful.

— Blake Montgomery (@blakersdozen) August 19, 2017

"Did not seem fond"

Boston Police asked them to stop throwing bottles and urine at officers.

— Mat (@sunnyright) August 19, 2017

The police did ask nicely.

Boston police: Stop throwing things at us

— Boston Herald (@bostonherald) August 19, 2017

Yes, but that was only a small, practically infinitesimal number of protesters … almost as small a percentage as that occupied by white supremacists among the American population at large. Best to fall back on the “mostly peaceful” angle.

Controversial rally in Boston has ended, police say. At least 8 arrested on what was a mostly peaceful day.

— CNN Breaking News (@cnnbrk) August 19, 2017

40,000 people protested in Boston today. 99% of people were there for the right reasons to fight bigotry & hate -Boston Police Commissioner

— Ana Cabrera (@AnaCabrera) August 19, 2017

Of course, the fact that President Trump tweeted about “anti-police agitators” during Boston’s own Summer of Love could not be excused. CNN’s Jim Acosta, of course, had something to say about it.

Yet POTUS tweeted about "many anti-police agitators." What happened to waiting on the facts to come in?

— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) August 19, 2017

Note that Acosta tweeted that at 6:10 p.m. — more than four hours after MSNBC’s cameras showed an aerial view of protesters mixing it up with police, and more than two hours after police themselves tweeted reports of protesters throwing rocks and bottles of urine … like lefty protesters have done before, again and again. This isn’t new, guys.

Special credit goes to Chet Cannon for creating a mostly peaceful GIF that still puts Acosta to shame.

Hey guy @Acosta

— Chet Cannon (@Chet_Cannon) August 19, 2017

CNN’s top man had a full two hours to sit on those facts and then choose to ignore them. Yes, the day was “mostly” peaceful … so now he knows what a shame it is when a handful of agitators ruin it for everyone. Here are some tweets for the scrapbookers out there who want to remember the day forever as mostly peaceful.
