Reporter Begs Americans To Watch Documentary She Did On FLOTUS, People Had Some Thoughts

This did not work out the way it was supposed to.

CNN’s Kate Bennett seems to be suffering from some confusion about the demand for additional details about the First Lady beyond what the public already knows.

In what almost seems like a desperate plea for people to tune in — perhaps after some kind soul told her, albeit too late, that such demand did not exist — Bennett tweeted a preview video for her upcoming special on Melania Trump, a woman most of America has come to know as essentially the same caliber of grifter as Trump and his own spawn, Don Jr, Ivanka, Eric, and Tiffany. We, of course, leave Barron out of the equation only partially because he’s off limits as a child but also because he hasn’t properly been afforded any opportunity to prove whether he has or has not inherited his parents’ penchant for perjury and pilfering.


Upon watching the trailer, one notes that “worked hard on” apparently means “interviewed some people who would say nothing negative about Melania even if I got them drunk and promised them a million dollars” — Kellyanne Conway appears in the clip, as well as Melania’s Press Secretary, Stephanie Grisham, two interviewees who seem more likely to jump off a building than ever tell the truth about anything regarding the First Lady.

Conspicuously absent from the heavily-soundtracked minifilm were any snippets of Bennett asking about the false pretenses under which Melania entered the country, her support of the birther movement, her blatant plagiarism of her predecessor, or even one second of anything approaching a difficult question.

It appears that, like me, Twitter had some thoughts about all the “hard work” Kate did on this “documentary”:

I hope that Kate doesn’t take the dreaded Twitter “ratio” too hard — that’s when comments on your tweet far outnumber the “likes” on it. At last count when I took this screen capture, it was more than 5-to-1:

do hope she takes it hard enough not to pull this shit ever again.
