CNN is in big trouble.
The anti-Trump network crossed a line no one thought was possible.
That’s because one host reported a story about the migrant caravan that could ruin the network for good.
Fake news “journalists” tried to make hay over a 7-year-old girl who died from dehydration after she and her family were taken into custody by border patrol for illegally crossing the border.
Members of the media delighted in this story because they could use it to paint Donald Trump as a heartless monster who personally ordered border patrol to cruelly torture an innocent child to death.
But the facts told a different story.
The girl had not consumed food or water for days during the family’s march to America.
Initially, she had not shown any signs of distress while in the care of border patrol agents.
The girl only became visibly ill during a bus ride to a processing site for illegal aliens claiming asylum.
Once agents saw that she was vomiting and exhibiting other signs of illness, they rushed her to the nearest medical facility where she received the best treatment possible.
Doctors were able to revive the girl, but she died 24 hours later from severe dehydration.
It was a terrible tragedy that showed the dangers of the caravan’s journey to the United States.
But that was not the tack most fake news outlets took.
However, there was one exception that no one saw coming – CNN’s version of events.
Jake Tapper – who hosts The Lead and the Sunday morning show, State of the Union – tweeted out the fact that the girl’s father had corroborated Customs and Border Patrol’s accounting of events.
The father told CNN he had no complaints about how Border Patrol agents treated him or his daughter.
Tapper wrote, “Guatemalan Consul Tekandi Paniagua tells CNN’s @edlavaCNN he met extensively with the father of 7-year-old Jakelin Caal Maquin Friday night in El Paso. Paniagua says the father of Jakelin has “no complaints about how Border Patrol agents treated him and his daughter.”
“The consul says the father told him that agents did everything they possibly could to help the girl on the bus,” the CNN host continued.
Tapper concluded, “The father, per the consul, confirmed the DHS timeline that Jakelin did not show any signs of distress until about 5 am when they were placed on the bus to ride from the border checkpoint to the border patrol station 95 miles away.”
This story is a stark departure from CNN’s usual coverage of Trump.
On multiple occasions during Trump’s time in office, CNN has run fake news stories to drive the anti-Trump narrative.
Liberal viewers tune into CNN not to be informed, but to feed their Trump Derangement Syndrome.
CNN’s rare bout of honesty could send their rage-filled leftist viewers over to MSNBC where on-air talent routinely shouts that every move Trump makes pushes America one step closer to 1930s Germany.
