Minutes after President-Elect Donald Trump’s “Thank You Tour” rally in Cincinnati, Ohio Thursday night CNN commentator, and former White House adviser, David Gergen voiced his displeasure for the man during Anderson Cooper 360. “I think there was any doubt that we’re putting an end in one chapter in American history and moving on to a new one he dispelled that doubt tonight,” he whined after bemoaning, “The alpha male reappeared tonight.”
CNN’s Brooke Baldwin took up her shift in the liberal media’s campaign to discredit Fox News’ bombshell report detailing the extent of the FBI’s investigation in Hillary Clinton, during Thursday’s CNN Newsroom’s three o’clock hour. “For the Clinton campaign, the headache is not going away here,” Baldwin whined, “Donald Trump wasted no time at a rally this afternoon bringing up the Clinton Foundation woes.” But that’s small potatoes compared to her panelist David Gergen who demanded that agents should be fired leaking to Fox News.
On Monday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of FBI Director James Comey's revelation that the agency is resuming its investigation into Hillary Clinton's email correspondence from her time as Secretary of State, CNN political analyst David Gergen fretted over Donald Trump's call to "lock her up" for criminal behavior, asserting that "nothing has been more objectionable than these cries by Donald Trump that he's going to -- if he's President, he's going to lock up Hillary Clinton. All these cries about 'Lock her up.'"
Not surprisingly, CNN’s post-Al Smith Dinner analysis did not take kindly to Donald Trump on Thursday night as the assembled crew didn’t object to the crowd booing Trump and applauded Hillary Clinton’s remarks as “self-deprecating,” “singeing,” and “traditional” since she’s so familiar with dinners like this along with the elitist Gridiron Club.
By midday Friday, the liberal media’s primal instinct to defend Hillary Clinton and attack NBC’s Today co-host Matt Lauer dragged on past the 36 hours mark in smearing Lauer for simply asking her about the e-mail scandal on Wednesday night was on full display with Wednesday’s CNN Tonight excoriating Lauer’s questioning as an “embarrassment to journalism.”
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello, CNN political analyst David Gergen worried that the Republican party has "turned right," and that GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is "doubling down" by choosing Steve Bannon of Breitbart News as CEO of his campaign. As if Bannon were similar to a Nazi, Gergen fretted: "Mr. Breitbart has called Mr. Bannon -- who's the new guru of the Trump campaign -- he's called him the Leni Riefenstahl of the American Tea Party."
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield to react to GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's speech attacking Democrat Hillary Clinton, CNN political commentator David Gergen fretted over charges that the Clinton duo had been "corrupt" in their handling of the Clinton Foundation, with the CNN commentator calling the charge "slanderous." After dismissing Peter Schweizer's book, Clinton Cash, as "discredited," he worried that some of the attacks on Clinton are motivated by "gender" and recalled that a "civil war" came not long after divisive White House campaigns involving President Andrew Jackson in the 1800s.
On Monday's AC360, CNN's Anderson Cooper and his guests likened Donald Trump to Richard Nixon. David Gergen decried the billionaire revoking The Washington Post's press credentials: "That's extraordinary! Why would he do something so stupid?" Cooper replied, "He's assembling an enemies list, like presidents have in the past." Gloria Borger interjected, "Most presidents, like Richard Nixon, keep it private....Donald Trump publicizes it; and says, this is my list."
Moments after video surfaced on Wednesday night of President Obama doing the tango while visiting Argentina, the panel on CNN’s AC360 did little to contain their disdain for the President continuing to engage in lighter fare they dubbed “frivolous” and “shameful” in the immediate 24-36 hours after the deadly Islamic terror attacks in Brussels, Belgium.
Former Clinton official and CNN senior political analyst David Gergen received the first nod during the AC360 Post Debate Special to comment on Thursday’s PBS NewHour Democratic Debate and exalted how he couldn’t recall a presidential candidate “who was more experienced and more competent than Hillary Clinton was tonight.”
Former presidential adviser and CNN senior political analyst David Gergen did his best in the moments right after Hillary Clinton’s speech late Monday night reacting to the nail-biting race between her and socialist Senator Bernie Sanders by trumpeting Clinton as “animated, spirted” and clear that she’s “found more of her voice.” Host Anderson Cooper went to Gergen immediately after Clinton’s speech concluded and Gergen first blurted out that it was “animated” and “spirited” in a signal that “we're going to have a great debates with Bernie Sanders.”
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's Anderson Cooper 360, CNN Senior Political Analyst David Gergen admitted that GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio "had a point" during the debate in calling out the media for ignoring Hillary Clinton's "clear inconsistency" in her Benghazi story, conceding that he had also joined in the media chorus focusing on "praising her performance."
But the CNN analyst then absurdly excused the media's behavior by blaming Republicans who "told us that this was a rigged process" for causing the media "naturally" to "look at it through that lens." Gergen did not mention that neither of the two Republicans who hinted at politics in the Benghazi investigation was even on the Benghazi committee.
