I’ve said this several times before: even a broken clock is right twice a day.
In somewhat related news, CNN said something true, and good, about Trump. I’m guessing you’re as surprised as I am.
CNN has called Trump a number of things since the election, and before. ‘Racist,’ ‘liar,’ and ‘inexperienced’ all come to mind. Even when not spoken, these themes were pushed, implied, and suggested to an audience of gullible liberal viewers. ‘Trump is bad.’
It was a constant theme from CNN, and it’s little more than brainwashing.
That’s why today’s news is by far the most surprising news I’ve heard in months. CNN praised Trump. And they did it accurately.
Trump is, after all, the nation’s “keeper of promises.”
Even CNN said so.

A politician who actually does what he told voters seems almost unfathomable in Washington, a town of broken promises. For Donald Trump, being a president who delivers is one of the golden keys to his so far unbreakable bond with supporters.
Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, defying international fury, and promised to move the US Embassy there. It was just the latest instance of the President honoring the vows he made to his ultra-loyal supporters.
While I’d like to congratulate CNN for finally seeing the light, I can’t help but shake my head at these statements.
Honestly, CNN, I don’t get it. You’re…surprised that people would love a politician that would promise to do something…and then do that very thing that he promised?
What kind of world is CNN living in? Of course that’s what people like about Trump. This isn’t rocket science. Just do what you say you’re going to do.
But as much as I’d like to keep bashing CNN, I have to concede another point – the network understands that Trump has kept a lot of promises.
He has moved to renegotiate NAFTA, pulled out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, walked out of the Paris climate accord, targeted the Iran nuclear deal and introduced a travel ban.
[He] vowed to preside over economic growth and set the stock market soaring. The gross domestic product expanded 3.3% in the third quarter, a three-year high, and the Dow just topped 24,000 points.
Donald Trump is a Keeper of Promises.

Even CNN gets it.
