Trump Derangement Syndrome can really take a toll on people. Unfortunately, that was evident on Monday’s CNN Tonight as CNN political analysts and White House Briefing Room rabble-rousers Brian Karem and April Ryan hijacked a segment meant to discuss First Lady Melania Trump’s surgery to whine about the President’s tweeting habits and his refusal to hold press conferences.
When one thinks of liberal reporters who relish showing off at White House press briefings, three individuals who come to mind are CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta and CNN political analysts Brian Karem and April Ryan. All three showed up at Monday’s installment to question White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about possible racist overtones in a Trump tweet that used the word “breeding” in regards to California’s sanctuary cities.
During Monday's edition of New Day, two guests took turns ripping the Trump Administration. Legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin referred to the Trump Administration's idea to privatize the VA as "silliness" while Brian Karem referred to the President as "unhinged" and "unpresidential." Guest co-host John Avlon briefly joined the anti-Trump crusade, describing the idea of the President taking action based on "things he sees on TV" as "objectively troubling."
During Monday's edition of New Day, a discussion ensued about President Trump's most recent "tweet storm" where he addressed the hot button issue of DACA. CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins said that the President's meetings with Fox News hosts over the weekend plus "hard-liner" Ann Coulter's "recent media tour calling Trump a disappointment" as the rationales for the tweet storm.
During Thursday's edition of CNN’s New Day, political analyst Brian Karem compared the White House to a "dysfunctional day care center." The Playboy magazine correspondent made the comparison after co-host Alisyn Camerota brought up the “game of musical chairs” at the White House, consisting of the actual impending transfer of the CIA Director to the State Department and wild speculation about more potential cabinet shake-ups to come.
CNN political analyst, Playboy correspondent, and Sentinel Newspapers editor Brian Karem experienced another delusional meltdown on CNN Tuesday afternoon, falsely claiming that President Trump has used MS-13 to label “every immigrant in this country” as “killer and thug and a thief.”
CNN suffered another media meltdown on Thursday as political analyst Brian Karem absolutely freaked out over the potential release of a congressional memo on surveillance abuses. According to Karem, this was an example of “mad” “mafia boss” Donald Trump getting ready to end democracy.
It’s certainly no secret that Republican President Donald Trump and the liberals in the “mainstream media” haven’t gotten along since before Trump was inaugurated on Saturday, January 20, 2017. However, that hostile relationship was raised several notches when CNN Tonight host Don Lemon accused Trump on Tuesday of using “Fake News” in such a harmful way that, in Lemon's book, it's inspired people to conspire to murder journalists.
CNN political analyst, Playboy correspondent, and Sentinel Newspapers editor Brian Karem made a fool of himself during Tuesday’s White House briefing, suggesting to Gary Cohn that it’s “unfair” to give President Trump “credit” for the bounty of businesses announcing employee bonuses and new investments post-tax reform.
On Tuesday, 2018's first White House press briefing showed that the media have picked up where 2017 left off by making fools of themselves with dumb and nonsensical questions. This time, topics included college football in red states, that infamous white box truck, and working during the holidays.
Without CNN’s Jim Acosta in the room, Thursday’s White House press briefing featured a more civil tone and traditional sparring sessions such as CBS’s Margaret Brennan grilling Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about gun control on the fifth anniversary of the horrific Sandy Hook massacre. Sanders’s answers didn’t sit well with some liberal journalists, so it briefly devolved into a shouting fest that might have included an off-screen cameo from usual suspect in Brian Karem.
Monday’s White House press briefing was another one for the ages as CNN’s self-righteous senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta came ready to rumble against press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, but quickly ran into the proverbial buzzsaw during a debate on liberal media bias. Acosta fetched plenty of support as journalists could be heard shouting throughout the exchange in efforts to heckle Sanders (led by CNN political analyst Brian Karem).
