President Trump’s controversial tweets recently have had the media in full wagon-circling mode, and CNN is attempting to change hearts and minds, one group of Trump supporters at a time:
CNN reporter gathers eight Republican women in Dallas. All support Trump and believe his tweets were not racist. Women say what they think. Then reporter tries to convince them otherwise. https://t.co/IZZ32FiBD2

CNN correspondent Randi Kaye not only asked eight Trump-supporting women what they thought of his recent tweets, but was also helpful enough to tell them what they should be thinking about them:
"I don't think it matters. It's idiotic, what they're saying, so it doesn't matter if they're black or white."

We’ve said “peak CNN” so much that we must have reached the top of Everest by now.
Exceptionally sad when you don’t even notice a “reporter” trying to convince people they are wrong. Activism is now expected instead of journalism from CNN.

If a reporter starts arguing with you over who is right, that's a red flag.

Just a little bit, but it’s what we’ve come to expect from DNCNN.

Not the first time CNN has tried and failed at something like this.

Nor will it be the last.
