CNN isn’t even pretending to be unbiased anymore. For nearly a year now the network has waged open war against President Trump, denigrating his person and beliefs while screeching for impeachment.
Host Jake Tapper grew so tired of keeping up the charade Sunday that he booted an interview guest from his show just because he dared to compliment the president. Mainstream media outlets are too entrenched in the fake news to want to bother with the truth. False, salacious stories about Trump attract viewers.
“I get it… There is one viewer that you care about right now. And you’re obsequious, you’re being a factotum, in order to please him,” Tapper snarled after Miller praised Trump’s connection with his base.
Trump has known from the beginning that he had few friends at CNN. It’s the home of the Obamas, the Clintons, a host of wild liberals who refuse to support Trump’s agenda on principle. Still, it’s a sign of how deeply the network has fallen that its hosts are now treating their guests with open contempt.
“Steve Bannon’s eloquence in that description notwithstanding, it’s tragic and unfortunate that Steve would make these grotesque comments, so out of touch with reality and obviously so vindictive,” Miller said at the start of the interview.
“And the whole White House staff is deeply disappointed in his comments, which were grotesque.”
Bannon himself has apologized for the obnoxious comments that he made to journalist Michael Wolff. Miller certainly wasn’t out of line for questioning for Wolff’s credibility, but Tapper treated him as though he were doubting if gravity existed.
“It reads like an angry, vindictive person spouting off to a highly discredible author… The book is best understood as a work of very poorly written fiction,” Miller added.
“And I also will say that the author is a garbage author of a garbage book.”
Tapper could barely control himself. His eventual outburst wasn’t surprising in the slightest.
“The president’s tweets absolutely reaffirm the plainspoken truth: A self-made billionaire revolutionized reality TV and tapped into something magical that is happening in the hearts of this country… You get 24 hours of negative, anti-Trump, hysterical coverage on this network hat led in recent weeks to some spectacularly embarrassing false reporting from your network,” Miller said accusingly.
“The president has an approval rating in the 30s,” Tapper fired back. “I don’t know what magical you’re talking about.”
The pair continued to bicker throughout the rest of abbreviated interview. Tapper just couldn’t accept what Miller was saying. The Donald Trump that’s spoken about on CNN is a fantasy, he doesn’t exist. For Tapper, none of Trump’s accomplishments mean anything. He only cares about the stories that fit his preconceived narrative.
“A self-made billionaire who revolutionized reality TV and who has changed the course of our politics,” Miller gushed.
“The only person who has called himself a genius in the last week is the president… I’m sure he’s watching, and he’s happy that you said that,” hissed Tapper.
Eventually, Tapper grew so angry that he abruptly turned away from Miller and began reading the teleprompter for the next segment.
President Trump quickly weighed in on the issue, tweeting “Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration. Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!”
Don’t expect Tapper or CNN to apologize. Their viewers love it when conservatives are attacked, they lap it up like they’re watching a boxing match. Trump was at first ridiculed when he accused multiple “respectable” networks of promoting fake news. He’s been in office for less than a year and he’s already been proven correct.
