Since CNN's counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd has a reputation for being vociferously anti-Trump, it must have come as quite a surprise to Chris Cuomo on Wednesday when Mudd made comments extremely critical of the intelligence community whistleblower who filed a complaint about one of President Trump's phone calls with a foreign leader.
On Monday morning, in the aftermath of a mass shooting spree in Texas from the weekend, CNN personalities were again pushing for more gun laws, including "universal background checks." CNN's three-hour New Day morning show discussed the issue in four segments, and only had guests with left-leaning views on the issue of gun control. Not only did liberal Republican contributor Ana Navarro slam the NRA and declare that she was "sick" of politicians giving "thoughts and prayers" instead of passing more gun control, CNN contributor Andrew McCabe made the questionable claim that "universal background checks" might have prevented two high-profile mass shootings as he repeated the myth of the Charleston loophole.
CNN commentator Philip Mudd is known for his extreme hostility towards President Donald Trump. Therefore his invective directed toward the President on CNN's The Situation Room on Friday was no big surprise. However, what was unusual was that Mudd actually made a great case to fund the border wall, not so much for border security but rather just to get a budget deal done and avoid a government shutdown.
The latest liberal Chicken Little Global Warming iteration of the End of Times comes to us by way of CNN's Philip Mudd who warns that hamburgers are going to kill us.
It was inevitable that CNN's counterterrorism analyst Phil Mudd's bizarre meltdown on August 24 on the subject of security clearances would serve as the basis of a parody. The Ovation Eddie channel on YouTube did not disappoint. It incorporated clips of Seinfeld's George Costanza screaming interspersed with Mudd going berserk to great comedic effect.
CNN counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd has a well-deserved reputation for being unhinged but on Friday's Anderson Cooper 360 (with substitute host Jim Sciutto) he went completely berserk to the extent of trying to kick another comentator off the show that wasn't even his. Before his actual explosion you can see the absolutely fury building up in him as political commentator Paris Dennard was making good points as to why security clearances are profitable for those who hold them.
In a disturbing declaration during Monday’s CNN Newsroom following President Trump’s controversial press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, CNN analyst and former CIA/FBI official Philip Mudd called for a self-appointed “shadow government” to step forward and counter the democratically elected one. He then had the audacity to complain about “Trumpianism” fighting Americanism.
After almost six hours of testimony Thursday in the long-awaited public hearing of disgraced FBI official Peter Strzok, CNN’s The Situation Room featured a panel with glowing, Barack Obama-esque praise for Strzok while accusing Republicans of having conducted an “odious” hearing for “show” that did the bidding of Russia. One panelist even said the American people weren’t smart enough to understand Strzok.
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin twisted himself into knots on Monday in an attempt to prove that President Trump was guilty of – well, something. Toobin insisted on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer that the President was “obsessing” over the idea of pardoning himself, then inferred that that was itself evidence of guilt. “You have to ask yourself, why is he raising this subject?” Toobin asked disingenuously. “Is there a guilty conscience at work?”
Rarely does a CNN panelist come out swinging in defense of a Trump administration nominee while going after a Democratic Party senator. But on Wednesday, CNN's Philip Mudd, who like most on-air personalities at the network has been harshly critical of the Trump administration and its officials, reacted strongly to harsh questions California Democrat Kamala Harris directed at Trump CIA nominee Gina Haspel.
Can anybody remember a time in the past year when CNN's counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd did not become completely unhinged? When he isn't hurling racial epithets around he has threatened harm upon President Donald Trump. In his latest madman incarnation, Mudd shocked even the CNN Newsroom host John Berman by snapping that Trump is a "dirtbag."
Unhinged people can be counted on to deliver colorfully deranged quotes and on Tuesday night's CNN Tonight the reliably batty Philip Mudd, in his role as their counterterrorism analyst, did not disappoint. In reaction to the good news for President Donald Trump that Special Counsel Robert Mueller named him not a target but merely a subject for investigation, Mudd declared that subject status would make him wet his pants.
