(FamilyRetirementClub.com) – If there’s one thing you could say about CNN, besides being fake, it’s that it is consistent. The media outlet has done nothing but deride, mock, and attack President Donald Trump since the moment he announced his presidential campaign, but this might be a step too far.
Political commentator John Harwood, along with a host of other panellists at CNN, recently let rip at President Trump following his acquittal. The speeches given by the President in the wake of the acquittal caused a lot of anger and resentment from Democrats who had hoped he’d lose and be removed from office.
So it should come as no surprise that Harwood and everyone else on the panel chose the harshest language possible to vent their anger.
“Look this was a very disturbing tableau for the country,” Harwood commented. “It was dark because he’s made clear that his mind is dark. This is someone who is in deep psychological distress right now, self-pitying, insecure, angry.”
Sure, the president is angry! The Democrats have spent the better part of three years plotting and scheming to try and remove him from office.
But dark? Who knows what Harwood is referring to?
Later in the panel, Harwood went as far as saying that Trump “doesn’t recognize abstract concepts like right and wrong, like morality or immorality, like true or false.”
Harwood wasn’t the only one to make the bizarre comments, either. Axios reporter Alexi McCammond even suggested that Trump was playing on some kind of tribalism, seemingly missing the point that the American people voted for the president because he was willing to defend America’s identity.
Nia-Malika Henderson, also present in the discussion, branded the president “vindictive” and “petty.”
“Yeah, and surprising. I mean, not surprising that the President can be vindictive, can be petty, can be, you know, frame himself as the victim and want to air grievances all the time,” she said.
“But it felt like this was a real moment, right, where he could have some focus on a forward-looking message for the country, borrow from some of the themes in the hope from the State of the Union, Republicans certainly received that very well, but here he was talking about Bill Clinton, talking — or Hillary Clinton, talking about the FBI agents, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok. So it was very, very bizarre, in some ways a missed opportunity.”
Will CNN ever realize that they’re shooting themselves in the foot every time they attack the man that the American people voted for?
