The fact is there is absolutely nothing funny about the terror attack that took place in New York City last night (see NYC terror attack leaves 8 dead, several injured; Sayfullo Saipov in custody after shouting…and Trump blasts ‘diversity visa’ law that let New York City terrorist into US). There is, however, hilarity in mocking CNN.
So when some random dude walks into a live shot from the scene of the attack shouting “CNN is FAKE NEWS” and it airs live on CNN? We’ll allow it.

My brofessor here isn’t wrong. Let me explain it like this, for example:
- Yelling “Allahu Akbar” while killing people is an apple.
- Everyone knows it’s an apple.
- But CNN wants you think it’s a banana.
- But it’s an apple, and it’s our responsibility to call APPLE when CNN tells people it’s a BANANA.
- Which is what my brotato chip did here, and he should be applauded for it. Someone give him an apple.
And as a side note, kudos to his discipline. It’s NYC so our brotein shake here could have easily yelled “BABA BOOEY, BABA BOOEY, HOWARD STERN’S PENIS” instead.
Also look at how CNN explained what he yelled:

In reality, the suspect, identified as 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov, yelled “Allahu Akbar,” according to that uber-conservative rag The New York Times.
CBS News, which reports Saipov is a Uzbek national, also reports he shouted the Islamic slogan “when he exited a rented pickup truck that he used to strike pedestrians along Manhattan’s West Side Highway.”
He killed 8 people and wounded 12 others.
At least CNN didn’t report he was a crazy conservative Christian. Perhaps that narrative is still in development.
There was also this beauty:
The group appears to have been led by Laura Loomer, an outspoken Trump supporter who describes herself as a ‘independent investigative journalist’ online.
Trump has repeatedly branded CNN ‘fake news’ during his press conferences and while holding rallies with his supporters.
