The 25 Best Questions from Chris Cillizza’s Reddit AMA

If I had to explain why the pundit class is so insufferably terrible, I would just link you to one of Chris Cillizza’s articles on CNN. Really the only example I need to provide in order to clue you in to Cillizza’s incompetence is this post where he graded the GOP health care plan by emojis. When you’re writing a column that’s too juvenile for even Buzzfeed’s standards, you know that you have accomplished something truly special. In short, the entire internet drags Chris Cillizza every day, so why he would volunteer to a high-profile pantsing on Reddit is beyond me. Here are the 25 best questions for the self-proclaimed “The Fix” from his Ask Me Anything on Reddit.

1. We’ll Lead off with One That Really Hits Home
