Kristi Noem’s ‘savage’ reply to producer asking people to ‘be kind’ over CNN+ is FIRE

With the CNN+ premium subscription service crashing and burning barely a month out of the gate, network producer Ellie Smith took to Twitter with a request for everyone to “be kind” amid the bad news — it remains a curious call to think people would pay to watch a body of work from a network they were already not watching that came with no fee.

Of course, a request for kindness from a member of the elitist media is going to be met with that much more snark and that is exactly what took place, with even South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem throwing in with a brutal jab.

“PSA if you’re going to tweet something snarky about CNN+, hundreds of journalists and technicians who did nothing but work their tails off just had the rug pulled out from under them. So be kind,” Smith tweeted.

Noem fired back in a tweet: “Now you know how the Keystone XL Pipeline workers feel.”

One of the very first things President Joe Biden did when he assumed office on Jan. 20, 2021, was to sign an executive order that revoked the permit for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, which resulted in the loss of 11,000 jobs — many of the jobs were reportedly temporary, but lost jobs nonetheless.

Another response to Smith from ForAmerica, a nonprofit group advocating personal freedom, personal responsibility, and limited government, was equally spot-on.

“PSA: ‘Be kind’ say the people who go on TV every day and produce shows that call 1/2 the country racist because we can’t stand Joe Biden and the radical Democrat party,” the group tweeted.

But Gov. Noem’s reply was seen as the most “savage”… here’s a quick sampling of responses to her offering from Twitter:
