They may not wear their pussy hats on the set, but Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, and Erin Burnett and almost the entire CNN line-up is in Stage 4 of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
The cable news network should pay a living wage to Rep. Adam Schiff, he’s in front of their cameras so much. How many different ways can Carl Bernstein say “this is worse than Watergate” and make it any more believable? A fill-in host for one of the late-night TV “comedy” shows (snotty quotation marks) makes a Trump joke and CNN is up with the video.
Typical CNN question for the man on the street: Why do YOU hate Donald Trump?
So there is poor Jim Acosta, just a working stiff news reporter — no agenda, no biases — bleating for A Little Respect Here, pls. We’re talking Thursday’s White House news briefing in which the CNN news provocateur does his Rodney Dangerfield impression and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders hands him his protective cup.
ACOSTA: “But you did not say that the press is not the enemy of the people, and I — I — I think it would be a good thing if you were to say right here at this briefing …”
SANDERS: “It’s ironic, Jim, that not only you and the media attack the president for his rhetoric, when they frequently lower the level of conversation in this country. Repeatedly — repeatedly, the media resorts to personal attacks without any content other than to incite anger.
The media has attacked me personally on a number of occasions, including your own network; said I should be harassed as a life sentence, that I should be choked. ICE officials are not welcomed in their place of worship, and personal information is shared on the Internet. When I was hosted by the Correspondent’s Association, of which almost all of you [attending the press briefing] are members of, you brought a comedian up to attack my appearance, and call me a traitor to my own gender.
In fact, as I know, as far as I know, I’m the first press secretary in the history of the United States that’s required Secret Service protection.
QUESTION: No, that’s not what I said. People (inaudible) …
SANDERS: The media continues to ratchet up the verbal assault against the president and everyone in this administration. And certainly, we have a role to play, but the media has a role to play for the discourse in this country, as well.
Watch the damn thing:
Not seeing this elsewhere.
