A shocking video was released Tuesday showed CNN producers admitting that the Trump-Russia collusion story was based on ratings, not the truth.
Meanwhile, The Huffington Post‘s front page showed no mention of it.
What was the breaking news the website was focused on instead? They were too busy reporting on a liberal meltdown that came after Eric Trump’s latest haircut.
Eric Trump got a haircut in one of today’s most popular styles… and the liberal media decided it was proof that Eric Trump is a white nationalist.
Seriously. The HuffPost tweeted:

Despite it being a haircut sported by actors, athletes, and young people across the globe, twitter users began comparing his haircut to that of white supremacist and known racist Richard Spencer.

The Stranger, a left-winged Seattle newspaper, joined in on the absurdity, tweeting:

Television writer David Slack likened the style change to none other than Adolf Hitler (a little extreme don’t you think!?)

Of course, conservatives pointed out the absurdity online and defended the young Trump.
One Twitter user drew attention to the fact that this is the new popular haircut for American men, and calling Eric a fascist for it does is an insult to the millions of Jews killed by Nazis.
Thousands of people around the globe have the haircut. For example, Twitter user Aaron Lee Mathis recognized soccer star David Beckham and musician Macklemore as other’s with the style. Based on liberal logic, they must be confirmed racists too!
WOW! That haircut is so damning.
Stay vigilant people!

One Twitter user brought some sanity to the conversation, recognizing the real importance in the world that is getting swept away from Eric’s new do.
Liberals:"Hmmm, still no evidence on Russia, SP overturned travel ban, what can we do now? I know! Let's make fun of Eric Trump's hair"!!!

This is a clear attempt by desperate liberals to shadow important news stories with anything negative they can find on the Trump family — and the only dirt they can seem to dig up is a haircut.
