For those who’ve read my past articles on CNN, you know I’m fond of mocking the left-wing “news” outlet with its own self-declared motto — The Most Trusted Name in News™ — and that I mockingly include the trademark. Just to twist the knife.

If there has ever been a more discredited major “news” organization on the planet — from Jeff Zucker to Fredo Cuomo, Don Lemon, Brian Stelter, creepy Jeffrey Toobin, and beyond, I am unaware of who it was or when it happened.

Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) was “confused.”

“Not sure what there is to celebrate. In the last 100 years, the CCP has murdered and stolen from millions of people. Xi is committing genocide in Xinjiang, annihilating One Country Two Systems in Hong Kong, and threatening war in Taiwan, to name a few of Xi’s crimes.”

The Uyghurs were unavailable for comment.
