In a telling analysis of the Covington confrontation, CNN commentator Angela Rye called high school student Nick Sandmann’s MAGA hat “as maddening and frustrating and triggering for me to look at as a KKK Hood.” Rye, who made the remarks in an effort to have some sort of “enlightened” conversation about perception and ideological perspective, failed to do more than tell the audience just how “triggered” she was by-not the fake news or attacks on high school students-but by inanimate objects. “Forget Donald Trump for a moment, and just think about that symbol of that red hat. When I see the ‘Make America Great Again’ hat now, Chris, I am triggered. I’m so triggered.” In an age of political correctness, everyone’s a victim of something.

The “standoff” between the Catholic high schoolers and activist Nathan Phillips was effectively a Rorschach test of people’s ideological perspectives.
“I wish that for one moment we can talk about what we see. People are talking about what is happening right now as a result of this particular incident is our varying perspectives, and I think that’s such a powerful point,” she said.
“Forget Donald Trump for a moment, and just think about that symbol of that red hat,” said Rye, in a moment highlighted by The Washington Free Beacon. “When I see the ‘Make America Great Again’ hat now, Chris, I am triggered. I’m so triggered.”
Rye then turned to fellow commentator Andre Bauer, who often defends the president, and said, “Andre, I think in a lot of ways our friendship has been compromised by the fact that you continue to support this man.”
