Sam Donaldson has put his money where his considerable mouth is, donating to Democrat candidates in the Trump era. He dramatically endorsed Mike Bloomberg for president, and showed he had no influence -- even on Democrat voters. In the last cycle, Sam donated to nine Democrats running for the Senate. Six of them lost.
Endorsing one of the candidates during a presidential campaign is usually a rare thing for most reporters, celebrities and other famous people. However, retired ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson did just that when he made a video in which he expressed his public support for former Republican and wealthy Democrat Michael Bloomberg in the 2020 campaign for the White House.
Longtime ABC White House correspondent Sam Donaldson fervently endorsed Michael Bloomberg for the White House on Friday's Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN. The funny part was the journalists pretending Donaldson has never really favored a politician before. Cooper solemnly began: "Sam Donaldson has spent years has a prominent White House correspondent, anchor for ABC News, never strayed from the ethic that journalists should not take sides"!
In exercising projection, CNN’s so-called “Reliable Sources” sought to decry President Trump’s “imperial presidency” on Sunday by emphasizing how there was no such thing as “right-wing media” vs. “liberal-media,” but, in fact, it was a “propaganda apparatus” vs. a “media apparatus.” Yes, it was the same show that said Trump had killed more people than Hitler, Stalin, and Mao combined, claimed the “future of the Earth” hung on Trump’s removal from office, and insisted Trump was a “destructive cult” leader.
CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter brought on "Legendary Journalist" Sam Donaldson to unload the usual liberal mantras on Sunday. That's how CNN tagged Sam -- "Legendary Journalist" -- not only on screen, but even in the CNN transcript. Donaldson raised eyebrows much smaller than his by claiming that Trump fans are "fixated" on narrowing the country: "They want to return this country to the white Christian country that they believe it should be again. They don't want the diversity."
Appearing as guests on Thursday's CNN Tonight, former CBS anchor Dan Rather and former ABC anchor Sam Donaldson declared that President Donald Trump is "out-Nixoning Nixon" on the Ukraine issue, with Donaldson claiming that there is a "smoking transcript" and Rather suggesting that it is already time to "roll the credits on a mob movie" based on President Trump and Rudy Giuliani's activities.
Longtime ABC journalist Sam Donaldson unburdened himself on Thursday's CNN Tonight, pleading with moderate Republican John Kasich to run against Donald Trump in the 2020 GOP primaries. He also blamed the president for the escalating problems with Iran. According to Donaldson, it’s all because Trump scrapped Barack Obama’s Iran deal.
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's CNN Tonight, former ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson cheered for the U.S. to continue marching toward socialism as he predicted there will soon be a single-payer health care system, and declared that the U.S. is "getting to be a better country."
CNN viewers are used to a narcissist spectacle on almost daily basis in White House reporter Jim Acosta. Former ABC White House reporter Sam Donaldson, whose liberal bluster is surely an Acosta inspiration, has come to Acosta's defense. So it was a little funny for Donaldson to come on CNN Wednesday night and slam President Trump and his top aide Kellyanne Conway as "narcissists" who love the spotlight and don't mind "trashing anyone." Reporters are not good at self-reflection.
On Thursday night, correspondent Randi “Kush” Kaye offered an hour-long special on the White House Briefing Room that served as nothing more than a pompous exercise in lamenting how they believe the Trump administration has been unfair to them and are unraveling American democracy. The endeavor was dominated by attempts to make viewers to feel bad for CNN, fondly look back on past administrations, and offer hissy fits about how, thanks to online and social media outlets, they’ve lost the ability to control the minds of the American public.
Appearing as a guest on Sunday's Reliable Sources on CNN, former longtime ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson misleadingly tried to tie Ronald Reagan to the Massachusetts prison furlough program supported by Michael Dukakis which allowed convicted murderer Willie Horton to escape prison and attack others.
With so many possible selections, it's hard to come up with a worst-of list to rank the most pathetic attempts by CNN's Jim Acosta to pose as an oh-so-tough reporter. His Friday stunt, though, was in the upper echelon for its laughable false bravado.
