There was a lot of terrible punditry, but CNN commentator Jeffrey Lord wins for his odious rewrites of American history.
December 30, 2016

There were many odious Trump surrogates after Donald entered the Republican primaries back in 2015, but what made CNN's Jeffrey Lord the worst of the worst was when he attempted to re-write the history of racism and racial politics in America.

Every time Trump engaged in racism to attack his opponents, Lord was there to mop up after him.

Lord consistently tried to blur the lines of history when he intimated over and over again that today's Democratic party is the same party of the Deep South during the heyday of the KKK, even claiming on multiple occasions the the KKK is a progressive left organization!

He never once tried to clarify that after the Civil Rights Act was passed in 1965, all the southern racists joined the Republican party and turned the south into a the most dependable Republican voting bloc in America."

Pointing at Lord, he continued, "And then you came on the air and you said this is just like when Reverend Wright was speaking. Reverend Wright never lynched anybody. Reverend Wright never killed anybody. Reverend Wright never put anybody on a post and you guys play these word games. And it is wrong to do in America."

Lord replied, "It is wrong to understand that these are not leftists."

"What difference does it make what you call them? Call them chipmunks, they killed people. And don't play games with that!," Jones shouted.

Lord taunted, "Don't hide and say that's not part of the base of the Democratic party. They were the military arm, the terrorist arm of the Democratic party according to historians"

Jones answered, "I don't care how they voted 50 years ago. I care who they killed."

CNN's behavior was just as bad since they indulged Lord's disgusting histrionics over and over again because they kept putting him on to spew his manure to the masses.

Lord also said fact checkers don't count because they are liberal.

Lord even had the nerve to say this, this about David Duke, "I mean, David Duke is a hardcore leftist. He's an anti-Semite."

For all of the terrible punditry and lies, Jeffrey Lord earns a special Crookie Award! Congratulations.
