Now it's time for the return of one of our regular features but which hasn't been seen here for a while. This is the Clown Award, given as always for meritorious stupidity.
This time, the winner of the Big Red Nose is CNN reporter Christina Alesci.
On December 2, CNN carried a story about how TheRump is convening a panel of prominent CEOs to meet with on a monthly basis to discuss the "big issues" around the economy and taxes.
She called it "really historic," gushed "I've never seen anything quite like this," and said the list provides "some very diverse viewpoints."
The list includes the CEOs of GM, JP Morgan Chase, Blackrock, Disney, WalMart, and, one assumes, Blackstone, and the former CEO of GE.
For the media, it's the very definition of corporate diversity: the entire spectrum of opinion, from GE to GM.
The spectrum of opinion about Christina Alesci is just about as wide: It runs from clown to clown.
