The crowd on Twitter at #CNNBlackmail and Viva_La_Covfefe is not taking well to instruction by our betters at CNN/KFile. Steve may need to devote a special edition of his Week In Pictures to CNN all by itself. The response is in the spirit of 1776, with CNN taking the place of King George III, or in the spirit of the rebellious slaves who proclaim “I am Spartacus” to protect the identity of their leader from his Romans overlords (as Hollywood had it, anyway). I am HanA***holeSolo!

This is a particularly optimistic take on the current scene.

UPDATE: And thanks to reader Barry Jacobs for the graphic below.
Let’s close this with the possibility that CNN may have outed the wrong guy.
And for all that, it seems like someone actually re-staged the original meme for presidential tweeting https://t.co/ktH9W2R8V0
