When it was announced that former Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann was announced as a speaker at the Republican National Convention, it was pretty much clear that CNN would be outraged.
Afterall, they just had to pay him $250 million in a settlement this year.
If you rememember, Sandmann sued CNN for defamation after they ran a false story about him and his former classmates, implying he was hateful, racist, and worthy of death threats.
Unfortunately for them – and maybe not for Nick, who is probably wiping any tears with $100 bills lately – it seems they’ve learned nothing.
After Sandmann’s speech on Tuesday night, political analyst Joe Lockhart went on the attack.
He tweeted: “I’m watching tonight because it’s important. But I don’t have to watch this snot nose entitled kid from Kentucky.”
The self-awareness for Joe is apparently non-existent.
And the same is apparently true for fellow CNN reject, Brian Stelter, who also retweeted a criticism of Sandmann that said he was “undoubtedly paid nuisance value settlement & nothing more.”
Nick Sandmann’s attorney Lin Wood has gone as far as suggesting that Stelter breached the network’s confidentiality agreement.
Wood posted a screenshot of Stelter’s retweet with the comment: “This retweet by @brianstelter may have cost him his job at @CNN. It is called breach of confidentiality agreement. Brian Stelter is a liar. I know how to deal with liars.”
These morons will never learn.
