Viewers would be forgiven for thinking that the clip [which aired on CNN this morning] was indeed a promo for a TV crime show. Or might it have been an anti-Trump attack ad from the DNC?

Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferers found out in shock and horror that the major investor in their favorite health and fitness companies is a Trump supporter. Oh heavens, WHY?

In a jarring report put out by McClatchy’s DC Bureau on Monday, and “confirmed” by a “CNN spokeswoman”, CNN boss Jeff Zucker was so impressed with then-District Attorney Kamala Harris that he hosted a 2009 “power breakfast” in order to “introduce her to ‘some of the leading movers and shakers in New York,’” ahead of her successful run for senator of California.
Univision’s Sunday evening newscast was quick to jump into the fray and label President Donald Trump’s statements on the city of Baltimore as a “racist attack”.
