As we told you previously, CNN has explored the possibility that the movie “Joker” could inspire copycat attacks (nudge nudge). That isn’t happening, so maybe it was time for a different angle:
When your reporting doesn’t inspire any attacks in movie theatres … Plan B:

How very predictable:
The true appeal of the new "Joker" movie lies in its invidious validation of the white-male resentment that helped bring President Trump to power, writes Jeff Yang for @CNNOpinion https://t.co/WcLJUAJ7Zb

There it is!
"How do I take a movie review and twist it into an anti-Trump screed?"

When it comes to what happens during Trump’s presidency, the scripts, articles and reviews are already written.
