A CNN anchor compared the abundance of terror attacks in recent years to random lightning strikes during an interview Tuesday, just before the network cut to “breaking news” of yet another terrorist attack that killed at least 20 people.
During an interview with Rep. Sean Duffy (R., Wis.) about President Donald Trump’s move to halt immigration to the United States from countries deemed terrorism hotspots, anchor Alisyn Camerota compared the threat of terrorism to that of random lightning strikes.
Immediately following the interview, the network cut to “breaking news” about another terror attack in Afghanistan that killed at least 20 people and wounded another 50.
The comparison appeared to surprise the lawmaker and raised eyebrows among viewers on Capitol Hill, who told the Washington Free Beacon that such a statement is the reason Americans are losing faith in the journalistic establishment.
CNN then cut to a terrorist attack outside the Afghan Supreme Court today that killed 21 people.
