Writer Kashana Cauley (The Atlantic, Esquire, McSweeney's) noticed CNN was throwing some serious shade after Donald Trump came out in support of Rob Porter and wished him well — after Porter's reported spousal abuse became public knowledge.
Twitter users threw lots of praise to the CNN employee who wrote the chyron:
I’m starting to think CNN’s chyron writer is Ron Howard reviving his role as the narrator on “Arrested Development."— Renee Graham (@reneeygraham) February 9, 2018
Mostly, people were simply no longer surprised by Trumps disregard for women:
One abuser validating another abuser. Trump is a national embarrassment as well as a vile human being.— Spiny Norman (@PiranhaBrothers) February 9, 2018
Others felt the chyron simply stated the facts:
It wasn't particularly shocking to people that the President neglected to voice his support for women:
It is indeed remarkable that he made no mention of domestic violence and supporting women. Where was Hope Hicks to craft that response?!— Lisa Liebman (@LisaLiebmanNYC) February 9, 2018
I just keep thinking how life went on after he said he wasn't a feminist the other day. We knew, of course, but a POTUS saying 1/2 the population isn't as worthy as the other? It is a low point among so many low points.— Say Bowers (@say_bowers) February 9, 2018
The idiotic part is that his full comment was "I'm not a feminist, I support men and women equally." Our president is perpetuating the myth that feminism = misandry.— diet🌵otaku (@dietotaku) February 9, 2018
Just another day in Trump's White House.
We could re-post this every day and it would never not be appropriate.— feminist she devil (@eliz_avery) February 9, 2018
