Not content with metaphorically canceling Christmas in recent years in an attempt to be ‘woke’, CNN wants to literally cancel the holiday this year, declaring “we just can’t do it” because of COVID.
CNN Newsroom host Boris Sanchez rolled out “medical analyst” Dr. Jonathan Reiner, setting up the segment by announcing that Reiner had last week called Thanksgiving “the mother of all super spreader events.”
The Grinch then decreed that Americans shouldn’t even be thinking about gathering or traveling for Christmas.
“People tend to travel, want to travel, want to be with family, but we just can’t do it this year,” Reiner declared.
Turning up the panicometer, Reiner proclaimed that “We’re going to cause needless deaths and particularly that’s among people we really care about, you know, our most vulnerable, our grandparents, our parents, our — our neighbors.”
“We can’t travel this year. We need to stay home,” Reiner asserted, adding “This is a sacrifice that Americans can make and we should be making it for each other.”
“Stay home, mask up, we’ll have a great series of holidays next year. We’ll really have something to celebrate next year,” Reiner concluded.
Why Americans should listen to this guy is anyone’s guess, particularly given that he previously told viewers that simply going outside and breathing could be deadly:
Imagine someone watching CNN (it is hard to do), and then imagine them listening to this clown and calling their relatives to tell them Christmas is off.
Not going to happen, unless you are this guy:
