On Thursday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, presidential historian Douglas Brinkley must have seen the buffoonery Chris Matthews served up the night before as he decided to go out and brutally attack “groveling, sniveling” Vice President Mike Pence for “act[ing] like Donald Trump was Buddha and he’s kissing his belly.”
Republicans celebrated a big win on Wednesday, and CNN Tonight anchor Don Lemon responded by mocking it as a “festival of flattery” for an egotistical president. Lemon pretended that this kind of gushing over a president has never been done in modern times, as if Lemon’s never watched network TV coverage of the Obamas, or the Clintons, or the Kennedys. He laughed and said, "My God, is that SNL? Is that real?"
In the lead-up to Congress passing the Republican tax cut plan, various CNN shows on Tuesday played up a CNN poll finding that 55 percent of Americans oppose the proposal. Such public opposition is hardly shocking given that dominant left-leaning media outlets like CNN have pushed negative spin against the tax cut proposal -- a fact noted by Louisiana Republican Senator John Kennedy just this morning on CNN's New Day show.
Monday evening on the final hour of CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon psychoanalyzed President Trump’s flailing answer to a reporter earlier that day about past presidents record of contacting fallen soldiers’ families. Lemon claimed Trump was “obsessed” with Obama because he could never be as “classy” “smart” or “kind” as our former president, while guest analysts Douglas Brinkley and Charles Blow repeatedly claimed Trump was racist and that was why he was “obsessed” with Obama.
CNN analyst Douglas Brinkley showed he loves Barack Obama just a little bit more than every other liberal in the media. The historian on Thursday night beat out tough competition to win the “Last Gasp Obamagasm Award” at the Media Research Center’s 30th Anniversary Gala featuring the 2017 DisHonors Awards.
Appearing as a guest on Saturday's CNN Newsroom, CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley was hitting President Donald Trump over promises to cut the budgets of FEMA and the EPA, as the liberal historian called the plans "BS" and wondered how does the President "look at himself in the mirror?"
On Friday afternoon, the narcissism and partisanship from some CNNers was alive and well thanks to senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta and supposedly non-partisan CNN historian Douglas Brinkley openly lobbying for President Trump to not end the DACA program and lambasting his Hurricane Harvey response.
On Sunday’s Reliable Sources, CNN host Brian Stelter offered zero pushback on CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley’s latest unhinged tirade in which he compared President Trump to 20th century dictators Francisco Franco of Spain and Benito Mussolini of Italy.
Following the revelations found in Donald Trump Jr.’s e-mails earlier in the week, the media have put greater focus on President Trump’s close-knit family. So late Wednesday night, during CNN Tonight, the network’s presidential historian Douglas Brinkley went on an angry rant where he railed against the Trumps as a family. And in addition, made baseless accusations about what White House staffers thought about them and their desire to work there.
CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley has been unhinged in offering deranged meltdowns before, but this one during Friday’s At This Hour was perhaps his worst. Whining about the lack of “climate activism” from the Trump administration, Brinkley bemoaned President Trump’s “embarrassing” G-20 trip leading to “a shrinking of American prestige.”
Appearing as a panel member on Wednesday's CNN Tonight, CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley was negative on Republican efforts to replace Obamacare as he called the effort a "tar baby" for President Donald Trump and asserted that it would "gut" Medicaid and "leave 20 or 22 million people without health care." Former RNC official Mike Shields was left as the only one of four guests to offer a right-leaning point of view on the issue with the other three guests leaning left.
On Tuesday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of President Donald Trump firing FBI director James Comey, three CNN regular CNN panel members were befuddled and reacted with confusion after right-leaning historian Doug Wead pointed out that Comey's temporary replacement -- assistant director Andrew McCabe -- is himself a Democrat and therefore not someone who is likely to impede any investigation into the Trump administration.
