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.
On Wednesday night, CNN continued its unholy and fact-devoid crusade to tar and feather every one of President Trump’s new high-profile government hires as nothing more than a clueless Trump stooge off the street or a Fox News personality. This time, their unfortunate target was Navy Rear Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson hours after the President nominated him to be the new Secretary of the Department for Veteran’s Affairs.
As documented on NewsBusters, CNN has a porn problem and bizarre obsession with describing the sexual escapades of porn actress Stormy Daniels and seeking sultry details of an alleged affair with President Trump. Tuesday’s The Situation Room showed this infatuation as the panel circled the wagons after a tweet by Daniels about her “NOT going anywhere.”
It was quite a sight on the Thursday editions of CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront and MSNBC’s Hardball as liberal journalists heaped effusive praise on President Trump for his “remarkable,” “significant,” and “stunning” willingness to meet soon with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. All the while, each network’s former Obama administration officials experienced weapons-grade meltdowns.
On Tuesday, it didn’t take long for the liberal media to move from learning about what happened at the deadly school shooting in Florida and the victims to lobbying for gun control. Ghoulishly, CNN law enforcement analyst Phil Mudd, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews, and MSNBC’s The 11th Hour host Brian Williams chose to condemn America as an exceptional country due to its gun policies.
