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:

Fareed is a danger to the country! A terrorist sympathizer, thus he applauds this horror show, it fits him.

Please explain further how brutally assassinating Donal Trump on stage was a "brilliant" adaption to this classic. Seems to be a sickness.

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?
