Probably not a good idea, CNN

A reporter for a Washington, DC-based political magazine sends this image and note:

Just saw this on CNN… show was on mute, so I don’t know the context, but this is pretty idiotic:

“Hand-to-hand combat, maybe that would be a better way to decide the presidency?” Also, newsflash, we tried using combat to decide the presidency in the 1860s and it didn’t go well.
