CNN is ground zero for Trump Derangement Syndrome.
The left-wing network has made it their mission to take down Donald Trump, one rage-filled rant at a time.
And one CNN host just had a hilarious meltdown on air.
The Wuhan coronavirus continues to have grave consequences around the globe.
The death toll has climbed to 6,515 with more confirmed cases to come while health officials scramble to get the pandemic under control.
However, the American corporate press is more concerned with attacking Donald Trump and politicizing the outbreak instead of trying to allay fears and accurately inform the public.
The latest example of that came during an exchange between CNN host Don Lemon and 2016 Republican presidential candidate John Kasich.
Kasich was brought on by Lemon to talk about Trump’s national address regarding the coronavirus.
Lemon, the so-called “objective” journalist, immediately had the knives out for Kasich.
He refused to let him speak.
Lemon cut off Kasich repeatedly and finally went on a rant:
“I’m telling you that we are in the middle of a pandemic right now. We’re in the middle of a pandemic…And every time this president comes out, he gives inaccurate information. So, I don’t understand why he would even come out and do it at all if he is going to confuse the American people even more. You don’t understand that? You’re a governor. I’m surprised that you don’t understand that. If you’re not going to help – if you’re not going to be accurate, why do it?”
Kasich responded, “Can I finish now?”
Lemon fired back, “No, you can’t, John…”
This is the “objective” journalism people have come to expect from CNN.
Lemon harped on moments in Trump’s speech that were quickly clarified, which is cheap partisan politics from an organization that lies and tells people it’s simply calling balls and strikes.
Other networks admit their bias, but CNN refuses to do so.
Instead, virtually their entire lineup of hosts are unabashed liberals who take shots at conservatives and Trump.
In fact, an exposé from investigative journalist outfit Project Veritas showed CNN chairman Jeff Zucker directing his employees to focus on anti-Trump stories in lieu of other news.
One study showed that over 93% of CNN’s Trump coverage was negative.
Yet they want us to believe they’re objective.
Lemon’s rant and refusal to allow Kasich to speak is nothing new for the host.
He’s routinely gone after conservative guests, or simply smiled and laughed when his guests went after conservatives in despicable ways.
He laughed when one of his panelists said that Kanye West is what happens when negroes don’t read.
He smiled when guest Keith Boykin called black community leaders who met with Trump at the White House “Uncle Toms.”
Lemon doubled over in laughter when two panel guests affected cartoonish southern accents to impugn the intelligence of Trump supporters.
CNN’s mandate isn’t to inform the public, it’s to hammer conservatives on behalf of the Democrat Party, and it’s shameful they’re using the Wuhan coronavirus to do it.
