The reason for this whole CNN kerfulle is that they are elitist assholes who know nothing about anything a normal American knows.
The whole reason why the mincing mo's of CNN lost their minds over Trump's gif is that they do not know anything about stuff regular Americans know.
They don't know anything about professional wrestling. About sports. About carbs. About the flag. About the right to life. About Christianity. About patriotism. They are too busy eating tofu and debating how to destroy the white working class to promote minorities and illegal aliens. Drinking micro brews instead of Bud or Miller or Reingold. Vegan instead of Barbecue. Transgender instead of transmissions. They don't know us.
They hate us. They fear us. They despise us. We need to return the favor. In spades. (That's a metaphor Lem I am not talking about Black people).
Every normal kid goes through a phase where he enjoys Pro wrestling. Comic books. Nowaday's video games. It is almost a rite of passage. When I was a kid coming up Wrestling was still in its infancy. It had a brief heyday in the 1940's and 1950's on TV with guys like Gorgeous George. But in the early sixties it was in decline. Most of the wrestling were controlled by two guys. One of them was Vince McMahon's father. He ran the East Coast racket. Wrestling was not on regular TV. The only way you could watch it was on UHF on channel 47 which was a Spanish Channel. The only show in English was Wrestling which was always big with the beaners. The Champion was the Living Legend Bruno Sammartino. They would have periodic shows in the Garden. Other big names were guys like Killer Kowalski. Classy Freddie Blassie. Managers like the Grand Wizard of Wrestling. Captain Lou Albano.
Late in the sixties and in the early seventies the Son Vince McMahon took over. He promoted new guys. Chief Jay Strongbow. Gorilla Monsoon. Haystacks Calhoun. He took advantage of demographics and dropped the guinea champion in Bruno and went with the Puerto Rican Pedro Morales. They had more and more shows in bigger arenas. Still only on Channel 47 on Luche Libre Professionale! It was getting more and more professional. They set up roles. Pretty boys. Heels. Guys like the Iron Sheik and Ivan Putski were villains. Andre the Giant made his massive presence known.
Then it exploded. Mainly because of the movie Rocky. Well Rocky II.
In Rocky there was a sequence where Rocky fought "Thunderlips" who was played by real life wrestler Hulk Hogan. This introduced the game to a whole new audience. Vince McMahon is a genius level promoter and rode that into Wrestlemania I which featured Hulk Hogan and Mr T from Rocky II and the A-Team who was a big star at the time. He eventually got mainstream people like Cindy Lauper involved. People like Cindy and Madonna used wrestlers like Captain Lou Albano in their videos. The had a big NBC show every week. The money was pouring in. New stars who were roided out freaks were born every week. A rival organization sprang up. It became a multi-million dollar business. So much so that McMahon tried to start his own football league.
Donald Trump got invovled when he played a role in a gag where he was fighting Vince McMahon. That is where the video came from. Most normal people who are in the least bit aware of pop culture know this. Not George Will or Jonah Goldberg or Chris Cuomo or Anderson Gets it in the Pooper or any of the other news mo's on the left or right. So they had to make a big deal out of it. Because they are just morons.
Most normal kids grow out of wrestling. Just like you grow out of jerking off. Hopefully you discover girls and drinking and drugs and find better things to do with you time. But every once in a while you might be spinning the dial and come across a wrestling show and watch for a few minutes for nostalgia purposes. It is really gaudy and over the top. Not as simple as back in the 1970's. But it is kinda funny and enjoyable for it is. Something that the assholes and pansies at CNN don't know anything about.
I do expect that we will see a CNN Newscaster as a villain in a WWE show soon. I hope they hit him over the head with a chair.
But then I hope that we will do that to everyone from CNN.
