"The 29 most cringe-worthy lines from Donald Trump's hyper-political speech to the Boy Scouts (according to CNN)"

I didn't really see anything "cringe-worthy" (at least from Trump) in their big list. He spoke in familiar Trumpisms (many Trumpisms, I will tell you that) but they are nothing new or shocking. Tedious perhaps, or eyerolling, but not "cringe-worthy".

Cringe worthy is saying to an audience of amputees "boy, I'd give my left arm for THAT!" and "he didn't have a leg to stand on!"

What I DID see was a lot of CNNs usual bug-up-their-asses lashing out under their apparent general directive to all employees: "we must attack and mock every little word and gesture". Lots of hand-wringing, mockery and histrionics, but devoid of substance.

The one criticism that I'd broad-brush apply to most of the 29 is this: it doesn't sound like a speech tuned for an audience of mostly teenage boys. They were likely bored.

Whoopdeefuckingdoo. Grow up, CNN.
