During Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s New Day, co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman and their panel complained about President Trump’s description of the federal government’s handling of Hurricane Maria as a “success.” Camerota described that assertion as “hurtful,” while Berman described it as “not true.” CNN Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, on the other hand, suggested President Trump had a much more sinister motive for his response to the hurricane that ravaged the island territory of Puerto Rico last year.
During the ongoing fallout over Omarosa Manigault Newman’s attention-seeking book tour, Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson slammed the President for calling the author a “dog” in a tweet and went so far as to accuse Trump of using “KKK language” in his attacks. Tuesday afternoon on CNN, Dyson accused Trump of “evoking an entire history of assault against black people with dehumanizing language” while responding to the claims made by the author of Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.
On Friday's New Day show, as Texas Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro appeared as a guest, substitute co-host David Gregory gave him a forum to complain that the Trump administration has lost track of illegal immigrant parents who were deported from the country without noting that many parents chose not to take their children with them when they were deported, while a portion also had criminal records.
On Tuesday’s edition of New Day, co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and David Gregory demonstrated the biased nature of CNN by devoting an entire segment to the promotion of an anti-Trump book that hasn’t even come out yet. The book, titled Fear, is set to come out in early September and is written by The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward, of Watergate fame.
Nearly 48 hours after President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the outbreak of Trump Derangement Syndrome among the media continued. CNN’s New Day began its program on Wednesday focusing on the President’s walk-back of his claim that he didn’t see any reason why Russia would be behind the meddling in the 2016 Presidential Election. During a meeting with lawmakers at the White House, the President said that he had meant to use the word “wouldn’t” instead of “would.”
On Tuesday's New Day, CNN political analyst David Gregory again showed himself to be one of the very few journalists in the liberal media who will actually make an effort to inform viewers of Palestinian intransigence and hostility toward the existence of a Jewish state in the Middle East. As he substitute hosted the show and interviewed former PLO official Diana Buttu about the violent protests in Gaza, Gregory repeatedly brought up Hamas's desire to take over Israel rather than co-exist.
During Friday’s edition of Morning Joe on MSNBC, frequent panelist Donnie Deutsch expressed his displeasure with Stormy Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti appearing so often on cable news shows. “He feels like he’s ‘jumping the shark’ a little bit,” Deutsch stated. “You almost get the feeling he’s already auditioning” for CNN President Jeff Zucker and MSNBC boss Phil Griffin to set up “his next TV spot.”
From the moment President Trump ended his remarks announcing the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran Deal, it was DEFCON-1 at CNN with panelist after panelist losing their minds over the President’s decision. One after another, they almost universally claimed that leaving the deal has left America less safe, jeopardized progress with North Korea, handed Iran a “propaganda victory,” and destroyed “international unity.”
During Monday's edition of CNN's New Day, co-host Chris Cuomo painted a picture of "obvious chaos" in the White House, in addition to accusing "Captain Benghazi" Trey Gowdy of not showing enough urgency when it comes to investigating alleged wrongdoing by Environmental Protection Agency Secretary Scott Pruitt.
The panel on CNN's New Day Monday morning did not seem that impressed with President Trump's campaign-style rally over the weekend. They seemed the most triggered by the President's proposal to impose the death penalty on drug dealers; arguing that such a proposal makes it crystal clear that he has a tendency toward authoritarianism. According to David Gregory, "thinking people of all stripes in this country are going to have to wonder why the President is so enamored of and flirts with autocrats around the world."
A political panel on CNN's New Day Tuesday morning took several shots at President Trump, referring to him as "erratic" and "impulsive", blaming him for the failure to broker a DACA deal, and criticizing his tweeting habits.
No edition of CNN’s New Day would be complete without at least one instance of Trump-bashing. Pundits on Tuesday morning’s show referred to the President as "pathetic," “unpresidential,” “whiny," and "weak.”
