CNN has come out swinging at President Donald Trump for wearing a hat that reads “USA” while visiting Hurricane Harvey survivors in Texas last weekend.
You’d think CNN would, during this difficult time, focus on the human kindness and compassion that are on full display in Texas right now.
You’d think they would highlight a few testimonies from the many people happy that President Trump was in Texas to provide what physical support he could.

But no, CNN would rather focus on the superficial.
Their gripe with Trump’s “USA” hat, it seems, it that the item is available on the President’s campaign website.
“The issue at play here is free advertising for Trump products,” the outlet – which dedicates an obscene amount of its airtime to discussing rumors about the President – claims.

Oddly enough, CNN quotes an actual ethics expert as stating that they don’t believe Trump has actually violated any ethics rules – but allows that ethics expert to rail against the move to wear the hat on his trip as “pretty inappropriate” anyway.
Oh yeah, that “ethics expert?” They happen to work for an organization that is currently suing the President over a loosely-backed claim that he is violating the Constitution by owning businesses while in office.
But there’s no bias there, right?
CNN is currently being thoroughly roasted for its idiocy.
The damn hat says USA… give me a break! 🙄

It's hilarious to see how the MSM are embarrassing themselves to hurt Trump

I'm no fan of the Donald, but if it had an American flag or a nike logo on it would you criticize that too? It says USA. It's where we live

Who would know that he sells this hat on the internet? Thank @CNN for the free advertising!

Pardon me if I'm wrong, but this is a USA hat, maybe he's proud of his country? Just a thought

I'm so very confused. There are actual things people can be upset about. A USA hat shouldn't be one of them. I don't like the guy but really
