Too Funny: CNN Tries to Fact Check Trump, Fails Miserably

CNN got a little cocky when they tried to make Donald Trump look stupid, and it ended up backfiring big time!

A segment with Wolf Blitzer turned it’s attention to Trump’s statement that Obama can be considered the “founder” of ISIS.

The graphic display on the screen went full snark, saying “Trump Calls Obama founder of ISIS (He’s Not).”

But then CNN took it a step further, trying to educate their viewers – who they must assume are far smarter than Trump supporters – on who the real founder of ISIS is, adding a chyron which read “Fact-check: al-Baghdadi founded ISIS.”

 

There’s just one problem. Al-Baghdadi is not the founder of ISIS!

Via The Hill:

CNN put a fact-check on Donald Trump front and center Thursday with on-screen text as the network covered the GOP presidential nominee’s statement that President Obama “founded” the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

“Trump calls Obama founder of ISIS (He’s not),” read the chyron at the bottom of the screen.

The text continued with: “Fact-check: al-Baghdadi founded ISIS.”

ISIS is currently led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. But according to the National Counterterrorism Center, it was established in 2004 by Jordanian al-Qaeda operative Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. At the time, he pledged the group’s allegiance to Osama bin Laden.

Capture

 

If CNN had stopped looking down their noses at Trump long enough, they might have been able to do slightly better research on the matter. They literally could have looked up this information on Wikipedia.

Instead they end up with egg on their face.
