“CNN is arousing the ire of conservatives for a segment in which a network host and two political pundits giggle as they make fun of the alleged ignorance of Donald Trump and his voters. The odd exchange obscures how little the CNN guys know about the story they’re supposed to be covering,” James Freeman writes in The Wall Street Journal.
