During Thursday’s edition of Anderson Cooper 360, CNN Political Analyst Kirsten Powers weighed in on First Lady Melania Trump’s controversial jacket choice, describing her as the Marie Antoinette of the Trump Administration and later arguing “she’s like a teenager literally, like this is something a teenager would do, although honestly, a teenager that was a child of a President would not do this typically.”
CNN political commentator and USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers wore her disdain for Trump supporters and middle America on her sleeve during Wednesday night’s Anderson Cooper 360, as she berated them and President Trump for playing the victim.
In a jaw-dropping display that was one part a lack of self-awareness and another part hypocrisy, Wednesday’s prime-time Anderson Cooper 360 featured a panel of CNN analysts sharing their opinions about opinion shows like Hannity on Fox News. Their opinions varied but were largely against the mixing of opinion and news. And that was their opinion on the news of the day. The hypocrisy was so thick you could cut it with a knife.
To watch CNN's Anderson Cooper’s interview with Stormy Daniels on CBS’s 60 Minutes, CNN reporter Randi Kaye convened a group of Trump-supporting women as they watched the interview on TV. All of the women did not believe Stormy Daniels when she said that she had a sexual encounter with President Trump in 2006. Cooper discussed Kaye's package with his political panel on Monday’s edition of Anderson Cooper 360 and they referred to the women as “hypocrites,” accusing them of living in a "beautiful bubble."
During Thursday’s Anderson Cooper 360, CNN aired their much-hyped interview with Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal, who says she had a long-term affair with President Trump in the mid-2000s. But during the panel discussion immediately afterward, their assorted journalists and commentators didn’t know what to make of it and most actually ripped into her for misleading reporters about her initial accusations against America Media Inc. (AMI), who owned the rights to her story.
For all of the talk about collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, there seemed to be a bit of collusion on Wednesday between the cable news channels as they dissected the President’s State of the Union speech.
After Democrats pressured Minnesota Senator Al Franken to resign yesterday, all of a sudden, the media considers Democrats the party of “morality” and “family values.” On Thursday's CNN Tonight With Don Lemon, liberal CNN political analyst Kirsten Powers battled conservative CNN political commentator Scott Jennings over this notion, with Powers staunchly insisting that Democrats had no ulterior political motive in ousting Franken, but only did so from the goodness of their hearts.
Late in Tuesday’s AC360, former Republican National Committee (RNC) official and CNN political commentator Mike Shields unloaded on his fellow panelists and the news media at large for failing to connect with Americans outside the Washington D.C. area.
On Sunday, July 2, President Trump tweeted out a meme of himself wrestling WWE Chairman Vince McMahon with the CNN logo over his face. That same day, CNN’s Brian Stelter took to his show Reliable Sources where he and his panel of liberal reporters decried Trump as “dangerous” and a “fascists.” A full week later, Stelter and another stacked panel of journalists were defending CNN’s legally questionable tactics of tracking down the meme creator and threating to reveal his identity.
Former Navy SEAL (Sea, Air and Land) officer Carl Higbie defended Donald Trump even though he was surrounded by critics of the Republican president during a discussion that quickly turned into a hostile debate on the Cable News Network during Tuesday, May 16.
On Wednesday's Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN, during a discussion of President Donald Trump's response to the recent targeting of Jewish sites, liberal CNN commentators Kirsten Powers and Errol Louis -- as well as host Anderson Cooper -- all had a problem with Trump advisor Anthony Scaramucci recently reminding the media that no one knows whether the culprits are Democrats or Republicans. And reacting to Scaramucci recalling that Democrats were sent to disrupt Trump events, Louis even referred to the story as a "nonexistent conspiracy" and a "conspiracy theory."
Early Wednesday morning, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon descended into the gutter by suggesting that President Donald Trump had no role in writing his speech to Congress because it sounded as though it was “written by a college student for someone else trying to use big words” Trump wasn’t smart enough to understand. Of course, as some might remember, this is the same CNN program that the President called out during his marathon February 16 press conference as being devoutly anti-Trump.
