IF WE CAN’T HAVE SMOD, HE’S THE NEXT BEST THING: CNN Compares Donald Trump to ‘Death Star.’

Remember, this is the same network that once got the vapors over its guests using a word like “crosshairs.” But now comparing Trump to a planetary killing machine* is perfectly fine.

Related: “New York Times columnist Ross Douthat apologized for joking about Donald Trump’s presidential campaign ending in an assassination attempt.”

Paul Krugman, always on the lookout for “eliminationist rhetoric,” call your office.

* To be fair, one that’s on the side of the angels, but still.
