Egging him to war.
This is what CNN does all the time, along with most of the US media: beat the war drums against the enemy du jour, usually Russia, but now as the list grows ever longer, Iran and of course China, the rising global power.
Trump is a disgrace, and few could argue the matter of peace and war is safe in his hands, given his well documented capricious, not to mention ignorant and narcissist ego, and his enormous contradictions resulting in sudden zig-zags in stated policy, but, curiously, he’s also the only major political figure in America that consistently—and to many perhaps inexplicably—pooh poohs and derails the Deep State’s constant push for imperial adventures and the drift to total war. The latter is what is normally described in the US National Security State peanut gallery as being a mature statesman, or “acting like a true President”. These sudden outburts of peace are routinely denounced as treason or worse. Yet that is just about the ONLY good thing that anyone could say about Trump. If the Democrats and their numerous media and political shills were halfway honorable or sane, they would simply recognise that fact and exploit such opportunities. But as we see, far from buttressing and praising such tendencies, they deride them. Here’s an example of CNN’s Hearstian “journalism”, as usual based in a total inversion of truth. Count the lies.
