Since CNN’s middle name is “News,” viewers of the weekday morning New Day program expect to catch up on the latest headlines and watch in-depth investigations on the topics of the day. That wasn’t quite the case on Wednesday, when the final segment of the program was devoted to a “hard-hitting” report on whether President Donald Trump is afraid of stairs.

The two-minute segment by Jeanne Moos, the network’s national correspondent, focused on several British newspapers that claim the GOP occupant of the White House has “bathmophobia,” the fear of stairs and slopes.

The panel on CNN's New Day Tuesday disucssed the criticisms behind the just-released Republican Party proposal to replace ObamaCare. In discussing the content -- or "the broccoli," as co-host Alisyn Camerota called it -- the panel's opposition, excluding Washington Examiner columnist David Drucker, ranged from labeling it as benefiting the wealthy to citing a new poll showing Americans' satisfaction with their health care.

Monday morning on CNN’s New Day, hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota spoke with media correspondent Brian Stelter and analyst Bill Carter about Trump’s claims that he was wire-tapped by President Obama. The CNN panel took the opportunity to not just bash Trump but also blast the “illegitimate” and “partisan” right-wing sources where Trump gets his news.

On CNN's New Day Thursday, co-host Alisyn Camerota interviewed Wisconsin Republican Representative Sean Duffy about the developing news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions interacted with the Russians during the Trump presidential campaign, depsite then-Senator Sessions testifying during his confirmation hearing that although he served as a campaign "surrogate," he "did not have any communications with the Russians." Camerota pressed the Tea Party congressman about whether the Attorney General should recuse himself or resign and cited a tweet from a Democratic senator as "the best resource" to criticize Sessions.

Thursday’s New Day on CNN started off the morning with a shouting match between CNN conservative pundit Kayleigh McEnany and three CNN liberals over Trump’s reversal of last year’s Obama mandate on transgender school bathrooms. McEnany defended the decision, while “Republican” commentator Ana Navarro, former New York City Council speaker Christine Quinn, and even host Alisyn Camerota attacked McEnany as “cruelly” “discriminating” against “fragile” children.

CNN's New Day on Thursday devoted its first segment to fretting over President Donald Trump reversing the Obama administration directive giving transgender students the right to use whatever restrooms they wish as the Trump move was labeled "controversial" and one that was "denying students rights" and "tearing at the social fabric of the country." No one seemed concerned that girls and women might be denied the right to have their own restrooms if men and boys are allowed to pretend to be women and demand entry. CNN's Chris Cuomo also oddly stated that, after the Supreme Court decision mandating that same-sex marriage be recognized nationwide, "everyone celebrated" the ruling as he fretted the absence of legislation codifying it.

On Thursday, CNN's New Day sympathetically profiled an illegal immigrant mother of four who has been taking shelter in a Colorado church to avoid deportation. "She was, at first, speechless, then in tears, her nightmare coming true," said CNN reporter Ana Cabrera. However, the report failed to mention that such deportations also occurred under the Obama administration.

During Thursday morning's edition of the New Day program on the Cable News Network, co-host Chris Cuomo responded to a tweet from President Donald Trump that accused him of producing “fake news” by declaring that is “the worst thing you can call a journalist.” “It's like an ethnic disparagement,” Cuomo stated. “We all have ugly words for people, and that's the one for journalists.”

On Thursday, the journalists at CNN's New Day accussed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his fellow Republicans of "sexism" for silencing Massachussetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, during debate on the floor over confirming then-Attorney General nominee Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions.

Tuesday on CNN’s New Day, host Alisyn Camerota argued with Republican Representative Sean Duffy over Trump’s executive order temporarily banning immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries. Duffy contested that the ban was a good thing because it gave the U.S. “a pause” to evaluate our current vetting process to see if it was capable of keeping out potential terrorists. Camerota responded by saying Americans should be more worried about lightning strikes than terrorism.
