Moments after President Trump’s Wednesday press conference before a hostile press itching for his impeachment, CNN’s The Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer and chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta preyed on the fact that most people had not read the transcript of the phone call between Trump and the president of Ukraine and blatantly lied about the “favor” Trump asked for.
Immediately following a Tuesday address by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announcing Democrats were moving forward with the impeachment process against President Trump, CNN praised it as a truly “historic” moment. They even went so far as to reassure their tiny audience that the Speaker understood the “utmost gravity” of the situation the country was in, and to not get discouraged by the “circus-like atmosphere” that was to come.
As is usually the case with CNN, hosts are reduced to no more than puppets in Jeffrey Zucker’s play, willfully reading from nearly identical scripts as they peddle their daily doses of venom for not only President Trump, but anyone who stands in the way of their far-left, anti-gun, pro-abortion, and pro-Green New Deal vision (to name a few policies). So for seven hours on Wednesday, CNN’s primetime hosts began each of the ten 2020 Democratic presidential “climate crisis” town halls by asserting that Hurricane Dorian exists because of climate change.
Well, you knew this one was coming. A mere 63 seconds past 5:00 p.m. Eastern and the start of CNN’s seven-hours of town halls on “The Climate Crisis,” Situation Room host and supposedly revered journalist Wolf Blitzer opened this monstrosity of an event by falsely blaming Hurricane Dorian’s entire existence and destruction on climate change.
Despite not having a firm, official count of those injured, the number of gunmen, the types of weapons used, or how the incident started in north Philadelphia, CNN’s The Situation Room engaged Wednesday in truly despicable behavior, using this attack on police officers to promote the need for gun control. They added that such incidents feel like the “new normal” and thus operating on emotion, not facts.
In the aftermath of the mass shooting at a Wal-Mart in El Paso, a number of news shows on ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, and PBS have allowed guests to misleadingly cite gun-friendly Texas's open carry and concealed carry laws to give the impression that El Paso Wal-Mart customers must have been well-armed when they were attacked, thus undermining arguments in favor of allowing customers to bring guns with them.
Less than a day after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was subjected to death threats from protesters outside his home and threatening Twitter hashtags (#MassacreMoscowMitch and #MassacreMitch), two CNN shows downplayed the protesters and one also featured 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bill de Blasio expressing support for one of the hashtags.
While many on CNN were trying to keep the faith and suggest the disastrous House hearings with Special Counsel Robert Mueller were somehow going to lead to President Trump’s impeachment, some couldn’t help but admit that Mueller’s testimony was an absolute mess that hurt their cause. During the five-o’clock-hour of CNN’s Situation Room, senior justice correspondent Evan Perez kicked off a round on criticism when he whined about how “Mueller essentially muddied the waters a lot today” when it came to impeachment.
Just after 3:30 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, the Robert Mueller hearings came to a merciful end. In the immediate 30 minutes or so, an assembled group of CNN personalities painstakingly admitting that the President had won the day while others also insisted that Congress can only sufficiently protect American democracy if the President is impeached.
During a brief break in Wednesday afternoon’s House Intelligence Committee hearing with former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, CNN again did its best to keep the faith for their boss Jeffrey Zucker and fellow lefties amidst their permanent impeachment campaign, hailing the hearing as part of a “Watergate roadmap” to begin ridding America of President Trump.
While others in the liberal media conceded that Wednesday morning’s House hearing with former Special Counsel Robert Mueller didn’t go as swimmingly as planned, CNN largely operated in an alternate reality concocted by Marvel’s Doctor Strange. Instead, the analysts and hosts triumphantly hailed the hearing’s contents as a “big deal,” a “bombshell,” and “really bad” for Trump that it was “almost like an opening argument in an impeachment proceeding” with Democrats asking real questions while the GOP had illegitimate ones.
On Monday’s The Situation Room, Congressman Mark Walker (R-NC) showed why Republicans appearing on CNN shows has become a chore filled with persistent hostility and left-leaning questions, no matter the host. In this case, it was Wolf Blitzer badgering Walker to further condemn the President for his criticism of “The Squad,” using the Gospel of Matthew to hit Trump and fretting that the President could be setting up a “loyalty test.”
