Mere seconds after ABC wrapped up their Sunday night broadcast of its exclusive interview with former FBI Director James Comey, CNN began its so-called “Special Report” in which they mostly gushed about what it meant for him to trash Trump like that. While they did have some criticisms (which largely centered on his handling of the Clinton investigation), the stacked liberal panel sang Comey’s praises for speaking out against the President.
During Thursday's edition of CNN's New Day, co-host Chris Cuomo played a tape of Wendy Vitter, one of President Trump's judicial nominees, failing to explicitly state whether or not she supported the Supreme Court decision Brown v. Board of Education during a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. When discussing her exchange with Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), CNN Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin went after Vitter's position on abortion, suggesting that her pro-life advocacy may disqualify her from serving on the bench.
For many months, the liberal media had been warning us President Trump had the country on a crash course with a constitutional crisis because of his anger at the special counsel investigation. Arguably, chief among those doomsday soothsayers was CNN’s Carl Bernstein who has been comparing Trump to Nixon and Watergate since former FBI Director James Comey was fired. But during an appearance on Anderson Cooper 360 Tuesday, Bernstein had an update: “We’re in a constitutional crisis.”
While the Kennedys didn't stop the Chappaquiddick movie, it looks like the Clintons can still create "second thoughts" in Hollywood. The Hollywood Reporter notes Glee creator Ryan Murphy "hit the brakes" on a season of his FX series American Crime Story centered on Monica Lewinsky. The History Channel also had "second thoughts" on a six-part drama series on the Clinton impeachment.
To CNN's horror, President Trump unleashed a series of new tweets Monday morning, picking up where he left off in his "tweet storm" on Sunday. As she briefed the anchors of New Day, White House Reporter Kaitlan Collins could not tell if "these tweets actually represent a change in policy for this President or if they’re just simply him venting after watching cable news."
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.
On Thursday, shortly after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that he would not appoint a second special counsel, CNN's Jeffrey Toobin agreed with the decision, claiming that "as far as I could tell, most of the accusations against the FBI are lunatic conspiracy theories." That would lead one to question why Toobin didn't complain about having an inspector general and federal prosecutor John Huber look into these matters. The fact is that there is enough evidence of a conspiracy and coverup to justify some form of inquiry — and Toobin, in his heart of hearts, should know that.
Donald Trump! So all-powerful that he can infect the minds of liberals 24/7. Much as they try, they just can't stop thinking about him. A case in point is poor Jeffrey Toobin. He wrote a review of The Americans in the April 2 New Yorker that took place in a time frame of no later than a quarter century ago.
Things got heated on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 Wednesday when Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz went head-to-head with CNN legal commentator Jeffrey Toobin, who was also a former student of his. Toobin accused his former teacher of “carrying water for Donald Trump,” while Dershowitz scolded his student for applying two different standards for justice depending on who it was targeting. Dershowitz also appeared to accuse his former student of criminalizing political differences.
On Wednesday, CNN reported that their infamous anonymous sources were giving them hints at what questions Special Counsel Robert Mueller was planning the ask President Trump during a possible in-person interview. “Obviously the four buckets we now know about … the firing of Comey and Flynn, that statement on Air Force One, and that infamous meeting at Trump Tower,” stated CNN anchor Erin Burnett during OutFront. From there, she and her stacked liberal panel unleashed a flood of speculation.
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.
