VIDEO: CNN reporter awkwardly reminds listeners that Country Fans are mainly Trump supporters

By

CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jeff Zeleny pointed out in an interview Monday after the Las Vegas shooting that many country music fans are “likely” supporters of President Donald Trump.

Zeleny made his remarks shortly after Trump gave remarks offering his condolences to the victims and their families of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

Breitbart reports:

“Something else, I think, to keep in mind – a lot of these country music supporters are likely Trump supporters,” Zeleny said. “This is something, of course, hitting the tapestry of all Americans, and there are going to be victims from across the country here.”

Why did he say that? what’s the reason behind that?

CNN, what do you say? should we help only people that supported Hillary?

I’m sick and tired to see Dems using tragedy to support their sick agenda!

Watch:

Others in the media industry also generalized country music fans as Trump-supporting Republicans. CBS executive Hayley Geftman-Gold wrote in a Facebook post that she was not “sympathetic” to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting because “country music fans often are Republican gun-toters.”

CBS released a statement hours later saying that Geftman-Gold was fired for her remarks.
