On Tuesday afternoon, the Twitter account Trump War Room posted a 21-second video showing President Trump as Thanos snapping Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Jerry Nadler, Rep. Adam Schiff, and other Democrats out of existence.
House Democrats can push their sham impeachment all they want.

As Twitchy reported, CNN’s Don Lemon had a meltdown over it the following night on air. “This is crazy. This is literally crazy. Are you people insane? Are you insane?” he asked. “Go ahead, troll the Democrats on Twitter. Do this stupid, silly you know what. Play this stupid, juvenile meme game. History won’t record this meme stupid crap, but history will record this [impeachment].”
That wasn’t the end of it either — memes like this really, really upset the folks at CNN. Next, CNN tracked down the creator of Thanos to get his reaction and to urge Trump War Room to take down the video.

Tom Elliott of Grabien Media noted that CNN still wasn’t quite done milking this non-story. Here’s CNN media guy Oliver Darcy weighing in.

What backlash, outside of CNN headquarters?

How is this still a thing?!

Backlash? You mean from Trump-hating Dems who are triggered 24/7 anyway?

In a nest of morons at CNN he is the mother hen of morons.
That discussion on Thanos was almost paralysing in its stupidity.

To quote Lemon, “This is crazy. This is literally crazy. Are you people insane?”
He is in their heads all day, every day.

Pulitzer-worthy stuff here…

More evidence we live in an amazing modern world of ease and peace and comfort. If these are struggles getting CNN attention I think the left can quit now. Utopia has been reached.

Don Lemon must still be in his feels over the Thanos meme

This is so funny on so many levels.
HOW do you get offended by this? It was funny. And I guarantee so many dems at home thought this was funny too. Its amazing how CNN is so easily offended and thought it necessary to bring on a frickin Marvel rep to answer these questions

Oh please. Get a life! The meme is hilarious ?

Nice work CNN. Way to take your drivel to a whole new level.

Trump War Room really should have added the CNN logo being snapped out of existence too — we’d never hear the end of the “attack on the press” and “incitement of violence” hot takes.
