CNN Pundit Posts Graphic Depicting Shooting of President Donald Trump…

CNN political pundit and journalist Chris Cillizza posts a graphic (gif) to his twitter account moments ago attacking President Trump through his remarks during the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service earlier today

What makes Cillizza’s tweet particularly disturbing is it depicts President Trump as viewed through a gun sight, and shows the President as an assassination target against the backdrop of being “killed in the line of duty”:

    What is wrong with these people? Even scarier than their individual actions is that the majority of liberals feel it is appropriate so they actually condone this behavior by either staying silent or voicing their support.

      These people are seeing all their work over the last 8 years get flushed right down the toilet! They realize that our President with the help of Senator Grassley and Senator McConnell are reshaping the Federal Courts with young Conservative Judges. They realize they cannot stop it.

      They also realize that the likelihood of Supreme Justice Kennedy retiring on June 30th is over 80%. He was their one Justice they could count on as a swing vote. That will be a thing of the past.

      They realize that the North Korea situation will be resolved once and for all come June 12th even though they came out with some FACT NEWS today to the contrary.

      The Economy is ready to take off!

      They realize Democrats are going to get DESTROYED in November.

      They are expressing how they really feel!

        I swear it’s Trump Derangement Syndrome.

        These people are so convinced that President Trump personifies all the terrible names the media call him, that they feel like they are justified in anything they say or do. They really seem to believe those of us who support VSGPDJT have lost our minds, or are so deplorable that our judgment can’t be trusted. So they think they are going to show us the error of our ways. They seem to be truly blind to the absurdity of their own beliefs.

        How many of them are like Maxine Waters – running around screaming for an impeachment, although not able to quote a crime. How many of them still believe somehow, some way PDJT either colluded with Russia or tried to obstruct the investigation – which has gone on unimpeded for how long now? I know Jewish people who should be thrilled about our Embassy relocating to Jerusalem and our strong stance with Israel, but they are so blinded by hate they call our president a fascist even as he has given the people of the State of Israel more to celebrate than any US president in how many decades?

        Their behavior and beliefs defy logic, common sense and explanation and have no basis in reality.

        • “Their behavior and beliefs defy logic…….have no basis in reality.” Agreed, based on our ‘reality’. Their thoughts only come from their deep rooted jealousy, envy and then; hatred of someone so sucessful and revered above all expectations and loud counter-predictions. The MSM and political ‘experts’ were made fools and stripped naked of any intelligence on election eve. This world-wide public humiliation is basic source of their hatred and vicious attempts at retaliation. 30 years of being lulled by Marxists and fattened on the teat of corruption leads to a shocking awakening called Trump Reality.

        Liberalism is a Mental Disorder. They are so tweaked by PDJT, who excels at pushing their buttons, that they have become completely consumed by hate. That blind rage leads to them crossing their own red lines and revealing their true natures to the public. They used to project an air of concern for the poor and downtrodden and were always quick to show how big their hearts were and how much they really cared. They lost because they turned their backs on the blue-collar union workers and completely engaged all the various fringe elements in an attempt to grow their voter base. But the blue-collar union workers were completely ignored and even attacked during the campaign. So they sided with Trump and a lot of disillusioned non-voters sided with Trump. Hillary had no policy but to continue Obama’s legacy but by that point, the shine had worn off of Obama’s platform. He became the Emperor with no clothes. He was portrayed as the smartest POTUS ever and they even called him a messiah and erected Roman columns on stage during his campaign speeches. But what has Obama really accomplished? He had to use executive power to get anything done and so far, most of Trump’s accomplishments have been to use the same pen to erase all that Obama built. Thus immediately making improvements.

        The Democrats are likely to lose more House and Senate seats come Nov 2018 and they will likely lose the 2020 election as well. There is no leader on the horizon that is capable of taking on Trump. All they have is negativity while Trump blasts out this enormous light of positivity and confidence. That alone drives the Democrats absolutely insane. All it took was for one man to stand his ground at the breach in the hedgerow and say ENOUGH! I will not put up with this B.S., I am right and they are wrong. For too long the GOPe has folded due to the attacks from the Left and their negative press machine. The last person to stand and oppose the Left was Reagan. Trump is even stronger than Reagan.

        Time for another popcorn run…

They thought because they had captured the media, the bureaucracy, the crony corporates, the unions and the education system they had won and it was permanent.

    The lashing out and hissy fits over even small deviations from their ideology shows what the authoritarian left are capable of. They actually, unbelievably take themselves seriously. Hillary was their leader.

    (this is in no a a defense of the contemptible Chris Cillizza)

    I have seen a lot of rifle scope reticles, and there are plenty of such images on the web. The demarked circle around DJT in CC’s .gif look like no reticle I’ve ever seen. Yes, there are some that are a bit similar if you squint enough, but the lines are far too thick and the intersecting x/y axis line segments extend both inside and outside the circle. I don’t know what the heck that image shows, but to me it isn’t a scope reticle.

    I’m always looking to reduce my ignorance with good information. If anyone can show me a scope reticle that looks like the one pictured, I’d be happy to be corrected, and happy to increase my level of contempt for Cillizza and his ilk.

      Yeah, I was thinking the same thing, and I think Cilizza was going for some “plausible deniability”. It’s probably more of a camera viewfinder than a sniper scope… but he WANTED people’s first reaction to think sniper scope. That way, he thought, he could come back with “Oh you people, always looking for something sinister. Hahaha.” But it didn’t work out quite that way for Chris. His little “stunt” blew up on him big-time, when the response was nearly universal and SERIOUS against him. And besides, consider this: Even if it was CLEARLY a camera viewfinder, then what was the point? The subject matter of the picture done in that style really makes no sense under the circumstances.

      So, regardless of the real reason behind Cilizza posting this in the way he did, it looks really bad for him… at worst he’s outright trying to subtly threaten Trump, and at best, he’s a total fool in thinking he was doing something “cute”.

        It’s probably a stylized CQB reticle from some video game. Graphic designers take liberties with real stuff (like the EOTech). The hotkey stuff at topcenter says game. The “W” & “H” at lower right are possibly coincidental, possibly not. Would have to know the origin of the image. Chans may have already figured it out.

        Yeah, I could see the left subliminally (or overtly) goading some nutcase to act. The “reporter” needs slapped with a 2000 yd no-go zone near POTUS & family.

          It looks to me that the W and H are image width and height in pixels. The stuff at the top appears to be hot key instructions for a mac (that thing that looks like a # with corner loops is a key on a mac keyboard). This supports the assertion that the whole overlay is an image processing artifact.

          Cillizza is still an ass for using it, though. My guess is it appeared unbidden and he then deliberately posted it that way.

      As an average pleb with limited knowledge, I immediately thought it looks like a scope, and most of the public are like me.

      Well, let me state that I would never condone hog-tying Chris Cillizza, then using a rusty pocket knife cut open his pants, and cut the bottom out of his frilly pink panties. Never would I condone castrating Chris Cillizza, and then after drinking a few cups of cofveve, cut Chris Cillizza’s femoral artery so he would quickly bleed out.

  18. The NK thing is GOOD…. Why ? Because much of the msm was not reporting the HUGE deal that PDJT made happen. Now they (stupidly) think there is a fly in the oatmeal so they will have to report it.

    Many libs will look like your dog when he tilts his head when trying to understand what you are saying as they hear of our vsgPDJT’s success in the NK arena ……..Maybe for the first time.

    Bingo.

    1-404-827-1500 is CNN contact number.
    Or 1-404-827-1700. There is also a feedback page. http://Www.cnn.com/feedback
    cnn.feedback@cnn. comcommunity@cnn.com

    I reccomend using all of the above. Let them know directly how you feel. It takes a few minutes for most options the phone could take a little bit. Well worth doing it.

    CommunistNewsNetwork needs to be told how vile and disturbing this is. It is a pattern that needs to stop. I think calling your airport is a great idea as well. They are taking money from this disgusting propoganda network in return they air the CommunistNewsNetwork. Silent no more!

      Always complain to hospitals, hotels & airports. That’s where CNN gets their biggest audience.

      Hospitals & Doc offices are particularly sensitive, as one can legitimately complain political shows (including the horrid View) upset them and make them feel uncomfortable.

    Tucker will likely comment tonight. This is a good note, that the closer to full exposure and end of the witch hunt it gets, the more violent they become.

    “Cillizza’s tweet follows a trend of violent rhetoric from members of the media, including CNN analyst April Ryan recently joking about getting into a fist fight with White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace suggesting she wants to choke Sanders.”

    On the very day President Trump makes a speech honoring slain LEOs, CNN’s Chris Cillizza puts up on Twitter something that could put the SS LEO’s as well as the Chief Executive LEO of the nation at risk.

    CNN itself needs to be shut down altogether, for numerous threats against, and consistent propaganda against the Government of the United States of America.

    Cillizza apparently does not realize how he might have endangered himself as well.

    Just as there are persons who are unstable and angry who might follow his clear and obvious and intentional suggestion,

    there also might be some person who is unstable who will be enraged at his suggestion and may turn a scope toward Cillizza’s own head. Ironic but true.

    CNN said the following in a statement to Fox News: “Chris has already addressed this issue publicly. The image in question is a framing mark used in film and video production to frame a shot. Nothing more. A producer who created the motion graphic inadvertently left that frame in the GIF. When it came to our attention, the tweet containing the GIF was deleted and replaced with explanation. There is nothing more to say.”

      Then there is nothing to say when people start demanding that CNN not be broadcast in public areas — give the airports, hospitals, and restaurants/bars a headache until they turn it off.
      The way to get at media is to hit them in their viewership/ratings — what are CNN’s ratings now? I believe they are not doing well at the moment; maybe that needs a little help (to go right over the edge)?

      #2 “Gifgrabber even calls it a “target” and it disappears once the gif has been made.”

      But #1 and #2 cannot both be true. If #2 is true, then how can a CNN producer remove something that is not there?

    Been following the AT&T vs Justice Dept which is the Time Warner/CNN purchase that the Trump admin filed an anti-trust suit in Nov 2017.

    AT&T finished their case to the court and the Justice Dept has given theirs. It’s wrapping up.

    Based on what I read (and it’s a lot of reading). Page 18 & 19 looks like a very good argument for the Justice Dept to win the case because AT&T CEO Stephenson took this to the board and the Justice Dept used his notes to prove it. Lookes like Time Warner CEO Bewkes made a problem for AT&T. If the court agrees on this issue AT&T loses the Time Warner/CNN deal they tried to make.

    Page 18

    .AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson echoed similar concerns when he received a phone call from
    Time Warner’s CEO Jeff Bewkes, informing him that Time Warner had “take[n] a 10% stake in
    Hulu” and that Hulu was going to launch a virtual MVPD. PX047. With AT&T in the midst of
    standing up their own virtual MVPD service (Tr. 3475:21–22), Stephenson rejected Bewkes’
    notion that “he didn’t think it would impact [AT&T’s] relationship with [Time Warner].”

    Page 19

    54. Finally, although repeatedly asserting before the Court that the United States’
    theory is “absurd,” “stupid,” and “preposterous,” AT&T and DirecTV have stated the opposite in
    a number of FCC filings.
    55. In one such filing, AT&T told the FCC that “vertically integrated programmers”
    that control popular content “have the incentive and ability to use (and indeed have used
    whenever and wherever they can) that control as a weapon to hinder competition to their
    downstream cable affiliates by withholding popular programming from competing MVPDs.”
    PX0002-004; see also PX0442-004 (AT&T explaining that cable operators with affiliated
    programming “attempt to use their control over such programming to try to artificially limit
    competition in downstream video distribution markets.”).

        YW KBR. The best evidence is when the defendants file official documents that contradict what they claim to the court.

        This is a good example. AT&T may take a big hit over this. If so, Time Warner/CNN will not have the best reputation for a future sale.

      Yeah, it’s definitely worse… but not sure in which way. If it was meant as some kind of threat, it’s far worse, seeing how they intentionally threw in the subliminal aspect. But if on the other hand it was NOT intentional, then whoever edited that clip and failed to delete those couple frames before final rendering has ZERO editing skills, and should be fired on the spot.

    Great article as always. Spookily he’s deleted his tweet! I’ve spread the word, I hope he goes down for this😁 Threatening the President of the United States is a felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871. It consists of knowingly and willfully mailing or otherwise making “any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States”. This also includes presidential candidates and former Presidents. The United States Secret Service investigates suspected violations of this law and monitors those who have a history of threatening the President. Threatening the President is considered a political offense. Immigrants who commit this crime can be deported.
