CNN bias Dana Bash Donald Trump Intelwars Jake Tapper Van Jones watch WHITE HOUSE Wolf Blitzer

Trump-hating CNN hosts rip ‘disgraced’ president as he and the first lady depart White House: ‘He just looks like a small man’

Given CNN’s nakedly biased coverage of now-former President Donald Trump over his four years in office, you knew the talking heads at the cable network Trump loved to call “fake news” were sharpening their verbal knives even as they popped champagne corks Wednesday as Trump and now-former first lady Melania Trump left the White House.

What happened?

As CNN live video documented the Trumps walking to the Marine One helicopter that would take him to Joint Base Andrews for his flight to Florida, the cable network’s personalities piped up and offered commentary on the moment.

Jake Tapper started things out. You probably recall Tapper a week ago questioning a Republican congressman’s “commitment” to democracy for arguing against impeaching Trump in a rushed vote, despite the fact that the congressman lost both legs fighting overseas for the U.S. military.

Anyway, Tapper seems to like the commentary he gets to spout, as he narrated things as “the disgraced 45th president of the United States” and first lady Melania Trump walked to Marine One. He added that Trump would be giving an “ad-libbed” speech at the base, and “one can only imagine what he will say.”

‘He looks small’

Then Dana Bash chimed in with a Trump observation. “He looks small. He just looks like a small man,” she said. “And that is exactly the way that he has handled his presidency since he lost, and he just has appeared smaller and smaller and less and less courageous.”

Concerning Trump’s decision to not greet Joe and Jill Biden at the White House on Inauguration Day, Bash added that “it does take courage, it takes fortitude, it takes a sense of self to be able to not do this — to be able to get into the motorcade with your successor, to take that ride … and that is not happening.”

Tapper also said of Trump that “he really is doing everything he can that’s wrong. This a textbook case of how not to leave the presidency,” Fox News said. “Whine and cry, pretend that you didn’t win, incite your supporters, stage an insurrection. And on his way out the door, he pardons a bunch of his cronies.”

Fox News noted that Tapper named some of those whom Trump pardoned, including former campaign chairman Steve Bannon. “You think that he couldn’t get any more disgraceful — well, just give him a few hours,” he said.

While CNN commentator Van Jones is no fan of Trump’s, last October he did say Trump “has done good stuff for the black community” and “does not get enough credit” — after which the left, who love to eat their own, attacked Jones.

Well, Wednesday was a different day, and Jones said Biden’s victory — along with the Democrats grabbing control of the Senate — is a “complete repudiation” of Trump’s policies, particularly with regard to Muslims. Jones also made reference to illegal immigrants being happy about Biden taking office after their “babies” were “being snatched away at the border.” Jones forgot to mention it’s a policy of former President Barack Obama’s administration.

Wolf Blitzer’s ‘little’ fixation

Finally, Wolf Blitzer had his say — and seemed to have an obsession with the word “little” to describe Trump, as he used it a whopping seven times during his piling-on speech.

First, Blitzer noted that Trump has a “little bit of a speech” he would give later and said “it looks like a tiny little crowd has gathered at Joint Base Andrews,” before observing Trump taking “a little tour over the city” in Marine One.

Soon he noted Trump’s “brief little flight” that was doing a “little circle over the U.S. Capitol.”

Finally, he offered that Trump drew a “very impressive crowd” at his inauguration four years ago, and now it’s “a little pathetic” that only a “tiny little crowd” was waiting for him at the base.

Don’t they frown on repetitiveness at journalism school, Wolf?

‘I don’t care! I don’t care!’ — Nancy Pelosi snaps at CNN’s Dana Bash over Trump tweets

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) snapped at CNN’s Dana Bash over a question about the coronavirus lockdown from President Donald Trump’s tweets.

Pelosi was addressing negotiations on a coronavirus stimulus deal when she got irritated at Bash for asking her to respond to a statement from the president’s Twitter account.

“Where do you stand and more importantly what is your message to the president about the timeframe here and what should lead here, the economy or healthcare?” asked Bash.

“Well there doesn’t have to be a contradiction there. Our economy will thrive when our people are well, and able to go back to work in groups, and collaborate on the enthusiasms that they have in their entrepreneurial spirit or in the workplace that they thrive, and our children can go back to school,” Pelosi answered.

“But central to all of that is stopping the spread of the disease, of the coronavirus. It’s central to that,” she continued.

“So I don’t have time to follow people’s twits, tweets, twitters, whatever, tweets, so don’t expect me to comment on them,” Pelosi said emphatically.

“Well even beyond Twitter, the president of the United States is saying that he could open it up,” Bash asked.

“I don’t care!” interrupted Pelosi. “I don’t care! I don’t care! I don’t care!”

Bash continued, “what is your opinion on that?”

“My opinion is that it’s not scientific, he’s notion-mongering as he does almost every day, so rather than waste any time on commenting on the president, I would rather spend our time focusing on the fact that any president or anybody with responsibility should be scientifically inclined. Evidence-based, data, what is going to make the difference?” said Pelosi.

“I think the cure is the biggest message of hope that is out there. We have the best minds in the country, 24/7, all hands on deck trying to find a path here. And that is what will be the light at the end of the tunnel,” she added.

“What the President is suggesting is that that light at the end of the tunnel could be a train coming at us if people are out and about in a way that spreads the disease further,” she concluded.

Pelosi was accused by Republican lawmakers of demanding the coronavirus stimulus bill be stuffed with expenditures serving Democrats’ liberal agenda and stalling the relief for the American people.

Here’s the video of Pelosi’s comments:

CNN Coronavirus Dana Bash Donald Trump Intelwars

CNN host credits Trump for ‘remarkable’ response to coronavirus pandemic: ‘He is being the kind of leader that people need’

President Donald Trump has been taking the coronavirus threat more seriously in the past week, and even one CNN host has taken notice and given the president credit for his response.

CNN’s Dana Bash on Tuesday pushed back on criticism of Trump by pointing out that, at least with his recent words and tone, he’s doing a good job managing the crisis.

“If you look at the big picture, this was remarkable by the president of the United States,” Bash said. “This is a nonpartisan, this is an important thing to note and to applaud, from an American standpoint, from a human standpoint. He is being the kind of leader that people need, at least in tone, today and yesterday, in tone, that people need and want and yearn for in times of crisis and uncertainty.”

An NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll showed that 49% of Americans disapprove of Trump’s handling of the pandemic, compared to 44% who approve. Only 37% say they have either a “good amount” or a “great deal” of trust in information from the president about the coronavirus, while 60% say they trust the president “not very much” or “not at all” on the issue.

After initially taking a more casual stance toward the significance of the coronavirus, President Trump in recent days has shown a willingness to enact drastic measures, both socially and economically, to help the United States reduce the spread of the coronavirus and minimize the economic impact on businesses and Americans.

With the stock market significantly down over the past week and several industries being crippled by a lack of consumer activity directly resulting from the threat of the coronavirus, the Trump administration is working with Congress on an economic stimulus package that could exceed $1 trillion and may include bailouts for travel and hospitality companies, direct payments to Americans, and various forms of support or relief for small businesses.

On Monday, the president urged all Americans to stay home as much as possible from work and school, and to limit gatherings to 10 people or fewer to slow the spread of the coronavirus so that a high number of cases doesn’t overwhelm the health care system.
