Good news, everyone! Afghanistan is going to hell in a handbasket as the Taliban retakes control, but at least they still seem friendly over there!

You know what’s even more “utterly bizarre”? That take.
CNN: “They’re just chanting death to America but they seem friendly at the same time.”

Wow, this beats the mostly peaceful protest headline, CNN always gives meme material. They are a media transformed into a comedy network.

That’s nothing to be proud of, CNN.

What is it with our media?

We do apologize for posting video that did not include the full context of Ward’s remarks. It was not our intention to cause any confusion.
From the full video, it's super clear that she's just like "WTFFFFFF." Also, she's still there and that's not true of most reporters. https://t.co/9ASSuZNdU8

Fair enough. Still, though, it’s truly unnerving to hear someone suggest that the Taliban could ever “seem friendly.”
