If you wanted a funny story for today, then check out CNN’s Kate Bolduan and her fancy sweater that says “Facts First” which is apparently the network’s slogan.
It’s all fun and games until you see how much that sweater actually costs, which is much more than us regular folks can afford. Want to take a guess? Go ahead, and if you said $380, then you were right!
No seriously, it’s really $380 and I’m cracking up wondering about who in the right mind would pay that much for a single sweater. I could buy at least ten sweaters for that price, one for each of my landscapers in the winter since they sleep in a van together. Just kidding, I don’t even have a lawn, let alone a landscaper who sleeps in a van with his whole family of other landscapers.
Bolduan said she got the sweater as a gift. Well, looks like whoever gave it to her is out of $380 which is like an entire year’s worth of my electric bills if you don’t count the summer months.
Check out the magical tweet this hilarious shirt appeared on:
For everyone messaging about @KateBolduan’s #factsfirst sweater. It’s from our friends at @linguafrancanyc and it’s available on their site. (I got the men’s in navy but I suspect you’ll be less excited to dress like me 😔). https://t.co/PMMQwcs8yl pic.twitter.com/8gQ2aDoMUu

And here’s Bolduan’s message about where she got it, which is proof she isn’t getting paid enough by CNN to sit there looking all attractive in her cute little “facts first” sweaters made by some ritzy overpriced designer.
What a special gift from a really good friend after a long year. ❤️

I always give myself special gifts too. It’s OK. No need to justify it.
Just think. If Kate Bolduan learns to code, then she can probably buy a few of these sweaters every month.
Now if this was my clothing line, I would only charge $35 for a sweater and I would have fake news and funny sayings like:
- WTF are facts?
- Brian Stelter is a potato
- Don Lemon is a choad
- The Cuomo boys are both Fredo
- Maxine Waters is sexy
- Al Sharpton is all paid up
- Pelosi’s Ice Cream Parlor
Those are much better ideas than wearing a shirt that says “facts first” and working for CNN.
