As Twitchy told you a few days ago after Sen. Susan Collins’ was among senators voting to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Susan Rice said in response to a Jen Psaki tweet that she’d be more than willing to challenge Collins for her Senate seat. Collins was asked about that, and CNN framed it this way in a tweet and headline:

CNN can be proud that their tweet/headline had the desired effect:
In other words, Collins thinks of Susan Rice as just another one of her constituents.

She feels threatened; but there needs to be a term limit in everything senate, Supreme Court and on anything. People should try out new things and not do the same thing day in and out.

Because Collins is a discusting traitor. https://t.co/9ifHbsdI5q

I bet the people of Maine have an interest on what she has to say @SenSusanCollins

However, the second part of Collins’ answer was left out for obvious reasons:
Your headline omitted the SECOND half of Sen. Collins's statement: "She's not a legal resident of the state of Maine".
'Cause that totally changes the meaning of the FIRST half.

Sort of missed the point of the full quote here, CNN.
"I really have little interest in what she has to say. She's not a legal resident of the state of Maine." https://t.co/2NYao8JdXs

Well that kind of changes everything. CNN mentioned that in the story but it wasn’t worth space in the headline, because JOURNALISM.
