'They've Broken My Spirit': CNN's Camerota Bummed By Lack of Action Against Trump

May 3rd, 2019 7:18 AM

Poor Alisyn Camerota. She had so been hoping that the Mueller report would bring President Trump crashing down. And now that it seems very unlikely that will happen, Alisyn is deeply bummed. 

Or, as Camerota put it on CNN's New Day this morning, "I’m sorry if I sound like they've broken my spirit," adding that the lack of action against President Trump is "disheartening." 

Camerota was so downcast that when she said, "I'm sorry if it sounds like they've broken my spirit," co-host John Berman jumped in: "That's what it sounds like!"

Indeed! Readers need to view the video to see just how dejected Camerota appears by the failure of someone—anyone!—to move against President Trump.



Don't feel too bad, Alisyn. If misery loves company, you have tons of it among members of the liberal media. They're equally dejected that the Mueller report has failed to topple Trump.

ALISYN CAMEROTA: So Ann, how does Don McGahn going to Congress change anything? I understand that they have lots of questions because they saw ample evidence of obstruction in the Mueller report. So obviously, Democrats feel like they need some answers. But at the end of the day, it's all in the Mueller report, as Lauren just said. They know that he threatened to quit because he thought he was being asked to commit crimes. How does him going before Congress change anything?

. . . 

JOHN BERMAN: If you look at the Mueller report, what Robert Mueller says Don McGahn says is that the President told him to fire Robert Mueller and create a fake paper trail.

CAMEROTA: Absolutely! That sounds like obstruction of justice. And they won't do anything about it.

BERMAN: Okay: so William Barr says it didn't happen that way. The only jury that matters in this is the US Congress. So the US Congress wants to get Don McGahn in front of them to get his version, to cross-examine Don McGahn on what is in the Mueller report, especially after Bill Barr now. 

. . . 

CAMEROTA: I guess my point, John, and I’m sorry if I sound like they've broken my spirit, however --

BERMAN: But that’s what it sounds like! But I think that’s the goal, too!

CAMEROTA: Well, it’s worked. Because I think that I am channelling many members of the American public who feel that these past two years have been disheartening for people who believe in justice. The reason that I say that is because you see in the Mueller report ample evidence laid out of obstructionm of what Robert Mueller considered obstruction, but nothing happens. You see violations of the emoluments clause, but nothing happens. You see nepotism, but nothing happens.
