Trump Prosecutor Ate Lunch At Subway, Next On CNN

 In the wake of ex-chief Chris Licht’s sudden exit, CNN was apparently thrust deep into the throes of an identity crisis  and nowhere was that more evident than in their breathless coverage on Tuesday of Trump prosecutor Jack Smith’s … sandwich?

That’s right. In a segment that Newsbusters writer Alex Christy correctly characterized as TMZ-esque, one reporter and two anchors devoted actual air time to the fact that Smith was seen leaving Subway with a sandwich and saying nothing.


“CNN or TMZ?” Christy tweeted. “Kaetlyn Polantz informs us that ‘[Jack Smith] was spotted today by CNN going to Subway for lunch, picking up a sandwich, leaving and not saying a word.'”

“The imagery was intentional and spoke volumes,” Bash added.

The segment followed former President Donald Trump’s announcement that he expected to be indicted again and possibly arrested in the coming days as a result of the case Smith is pursuing.

CNN did not reveal what kind of sandwich Smith ordered, nor did the outlet seem overly concerned with whether or not he opted to add a drink, chips, or a freshly-baked cookie.
