The big news this week on the interwebs was CNN’s Chris Cillizza writing how buying Alaska “didn’t work out so well” in a response to President Trump’s reported interest in buying Greenland. Cillizza quickly tried to save face by editing the piece. But, as we all know, the internet is forever. See both versions below.
While lots of Alaska folks weighed in, I have to hand it to Senator Dan Sullivan with this epic response to Cillizza in the middle of his tour of the Interior.
You may have seen CNN’s Chris Cillizza just the other day said the Alaska Purchase “didn’t work out so well” for America. Our own Craig Medred had a great piece offering Chris some real news. I’m on a road-trip to Fairbanks and I thought this would be an opportunity to share a bit about what makes Alaska the greatest state in the country. I’ll be making more updates along the way. Calling all Alaskans — share what you love about our state in the comments!
