CNN presents ‘MisinfoNation: The Trump Faithful’ documentary, declares God is not in US Constitution

If you want to see the deceptive lengths CNN and the liberal loons who watch it will go to in pursuit of discrediting Trump supporters, look no further than Donie O’Sullivan, who thinks his clever game of semantics makes him a “misinformation” master.

O’Sullivan is presenting an hour-long documentary titled, “MisinfoNation: The Trump Faithful,” which will air Sunday on CNN’s “The Whole Story with Anderson Cooper.”

To tease his journalistic prowess, the disingenuous O’Sullivan confronted Trump supporter Julian Lightfoot and declared that God isn’t mentioned in the Constitution.

“The job of the journalist is to ask the questions, allow the person to speak and just report the facts,” Lightfoot told O’Sullivan. “What was spoken. Would you like for me to pull up the definition of journalists?”

Naturally, the correspondent declined.

After debating the legitimacy of the 2020 election, Lightfoot tells O’Sullivan, “We want the God-given freedom that our Constitution and our Bill of Rights is based on.”

“God-given Constitutional rights,” a patronizing O’Sullivan replies. “They’re two different things.”

“No, sir, they’re not,” Lightfoot says. “Read — R-E-A-D — the Constitution. Read it out loud to yourself so that you hear what the words of the Constitution say.”

And that’s when O’Sullivan’s brain fired up its feeble attempt at mental gymnastics.

“God isn’t mentioned in the Constitution,” he smugly states.

Oh, you clever correspondent. No, “God” isn’t mentioned specifically in the Constitution, but He is brought up in the Declaration of Independence.

One wonders what O’Sullivan thinks “endowed by their Creator” means. Or if he noticed that “One nation, under God” is part of the Pledge of Allegiance. Or if he’s looked at any of the dollar bills he clearly covets. If he did, he’d see the words “In God We Trust.”

But if all that is too subtle for O’Sullivan, perhaps he should just read our founding documents.

From the Declaration of Independence:

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

 

From there, O’Sullivan could scroll through the Bill of Rights, which states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech.”

In other words, our Founding Fathers clearly acknowledged the significance of “God-given rights” and protected Lightfoot’s right to talk about them and anything else she wanted to address.

O’Sullivan’s goal was to paint Lightfoot as an ignorant, conspiratorial Christian nationalist extremist. Instead, his game of semantics perfectly illustrates the dangers of “misinformation” police.

“Just a reminder!” noted one user on X. “God or the divine is mentioned at least once in each of the 50 state constitutions and nearly 200 times overall, according to a Pew Research Center analysis. The Declaration of Independence also mentions specifically that our rights are derived from God.”

But, like the Pavlovian pooches they are, leftists on X are using O’Sullivan’s smear to further attack Christians who dare to support former President Donald Trump:

And O’Sullivan, as one user on X pointed out, is flat-out wrong.

The Constitution is dated, “the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven.”
