Syrian survivor on CNN destroys the network for years of silence; Trump’s a hero, where were YOU?

If CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin’s sour face didn’t already tell the tale, a Syrian refugee’s message to the world was not consistent with the anti-Trump agenda often found on the network.

The man, Kassem Eid, survived a 2013 chemical attack in Syria, and was speaking to Baldwin following President Donald Trump’s airstrikes against President Bashar al-Assad’s government after another chemical attack this week on civilians, to include children.

“What you did was amazing, what you did was a powerful message of hope for a lot of people inside and outside of Syria,” Eid said directly to Trump in a show of gratitude.

All the while, Baldwin is trying to break away.

Earlier, Eid ripped not only CNN, but Hillary Clinton and her merry band of unhinged liberals who where demonstrating against Trump’s travel ban.

“I didn’t see you three days ago when people were gassed to death, when civilians were gassed to death,” he said. “I didn’t see you in 2013 when 1,400 people were gassed to death. I didn’t see you raising your voice against President [Barack] Obama’s inaction in Syria that led us refugees… that made us refugees get kicked out of Syria.”

And Eid made it clear that Syrians want to stay in their own country.

“If you really care about refugees, if you really care about helping us, please, help us stay in our — in our country,” he added. “We don’t want to come to the United States. We want to stay in our country, with all due respect.

“This is hypocrisy. If you really care, if you really care, help us stay in our country. We don’t want to become refugees. We want to stay in our country. Help us establish safe zones.”
