CNN anchor John King got so frustrated with his "magic" computerized touch-screen wall before the elections that he had a "meltdown" and told crew "I wish I brought a gun to work." To shoot the wall, one hopes.

King—who, according to Page 6, is on thin ice with CNN Worldwide President Jim Walton thanks to poor ratings for his show John King U.S.A.—received a scolding from Turner Broadcasting CEO and Chairman Phil Kent after his October 29 declaration of support for a loose interpretation of the Second Amendment.

Which all makes the John King U.S.A. promos from a few months back all the funnier. Nothing beats the magic wall! Except John King, with his gun.
