CNN’s Fareed Zakaria: ‘Trump assassination’ version of ‘Julius Caesar’ a ‘masterpiece’

We reported earlier, a play produced and performed in New York’s Central Park depicts a Trump-like character as a modern-day version of “Julius Caesar” in the classic William Shakespeare play. 

The title character – Caesar – or to be more precise, a Trump-like version of the ancient Roman dictator is shown stabbed to death.  CNN’s Fareed Zakaria was so taken by the performance that he called it a “masterpiece” on Twitter.

“If you’re in NYC, go see Julius Caesar, free in Central Park, brilliantly interpreted for Trump era. A masterpiece,” he tweeted.

A “masterpiece.”  Just let that sink in for a few minutes before proceeding.

Naturally, Zakaria got hammered on social media:

One could easily believe that Zakaria fantasizes about Trump being murdered.  And let’s not forget that this is CNN — the same network that once employed Kathy Griffin, the D-list “comedian” who thought holding a bloody facsimile of Trump’s severed head constituted “comedy.”  We’re still waiting for the punch line on that, but we’re pretty certain we really don’t want to know…

A post at the Gateway Pundit observed:

The left is obsessed with the idea of President Trump being assassinated. Kathy Griffin recently did an ISIS-inspired photoshoot holding Trump’s severed head dripping blood. Rapper Snoop Dogg also did a rap video where he shot a President Trump lookalike in the head. The left is a violent, seditious political faction that must be stopped.

Zakaria, Cristina Laila added, “not only has unleashed a profanity-laced tirade towards President Trump live on air, he is now praising the ‘assassination’ of a sitting U.S. President. CNN should cut ties with him or face the backlash.”

It’s really no wonder CNN is now seen as the least-trusted name in cable news…  One has to wonder: What’s next?
