CNN’s Coverage of Trump Is So Bad, Even Kasich Criticizes Them


CNN�s Coverage of Trump Is So Bad, Even
Kasich Criticizes Them After President Donald Trump�s bipartisan
meeting on immigration reform this week � and a certain utterance by the commander in chief
that quickly went viral � CNN seemed to have transmogrified itself from its self-described
mantle as �The Most Trusted Name in News� into �The S***hole Channel.� Yes, after the president apparently made the
unwise decision to use a deprecatory expletive to say what everyone knew anyway about Haiti
and El Salvador, CNN and its retinue of totally unbiased reporters treated the incident like
Court TV treated the O.J. trial. (Sample: �This is �CNN Tonight,� I�m
Don Lemon. The president of the United States is racist.�) As the weekend hit, there were plenty of people
sick of seeing CNN drag the president through the mire over one asterisked word. One of those sickened, surprisingly, was Ohio
Gov. John Kasich. Kasich, bear-trap minded readers will recall,
has been one of the president�s most vociferous critics from the Republican Party, particularly
among those in elected office. Kasich managed to fight Trump to the bitter
end during the primary campaign despite only winning one state (his own) and offering America
nothing besides the mien and attitude of an ornery principal from a 1980s high school
movie. Even after his loss, he continued to go after
Trump, with some speculating he would run in 2020 on a unity ticket with Democrat Colorado
Gov. John Hickenlooper. However, during a Friday appearance on CNN
with Jake Tapper, Kasich turned on CNN when the network tried to get him to call the president
racist, instead saying CNN was wasting its time on a single frivolous expletive. The fun began when Tapper asked Kasich �what
it would take� for the Ohio governor to call the president racist. �I�m not a name-caller,� Kasich responded. �What would it take? I�m not into name-calling.� Do you think Congress should censure President
Trump for his remark? Yes No

that the cantankerous governor wasn�t quite thrilled with the line of questioning, pressed
on and asked Kasich if Congress (a body which he is not a member of, it should be noted)
ought to censure the president for saying �s***hole.� �We need to move on, Jake. Look, I�ll be honest with you, I understand
ratings, newspaper hits, clicks, ratings in television, OK? Everybody�s had their say,� Kasich said. �Hopefully we�ll see some more out of
Republicans. Maybe the president will say something, apologize
or whatever. We�ve got to move on. We have big issues out there. We�re facing maybe the closing of the government. We�ve got a situation where we�ve got
to take care of these other folks,� he continued. �Everybody, you know, this is a time for
everybody to pound somebody. I�ve never been a big one on pounding somebody
when they�re down, other than to say that was wrong and I think what the president said
was wrong. I don�t have any more to say about it other
than this.� I must admit to being rather unsurprised and
resigned when it comes to the media�s coverage of s***holegate. Every time CNN and related networks get a
bee in their bonnet regarding any Republican (particularly the current president), the
breathless oversaturation reminds me of nothing so much as the old SNL �Buckwheat Dead:
America Mourns� skit. While this is hardly anything new � remember
the hours upon hours of airtime devoted to Larry Craig and his �wide stance� in some
godforsaken airport lavatory while two wars were raging in the Middle East? � the media
has found some way to turn it up to 11 during the Trump years. Who knows? Maybe they�re expending all of the outrage
they didn�t bother using from January of 2009 until January of 2017. Or maybe they just can�t help themselves. Either way, kudos to Kasich for not taking
the low-quality bait � especially since he�s close to CNN and loathes the president. If only all GOP politicians so principled.

  1. Has anyone asked why CNN is so HELL BEND ON TRASHING President Trump? Are they hidding something? Protecting certain people? Will we EVER KNOW? I BELIEVE we will KNOW what is on THEIR AGENDA SOON thanks to President Trump…….I hope they are PREPRARED when that time comes. WE THE PEOPLE ARE SICK OF THE LIES. God bless President Trump and the United States of America.

  2. As "AMERICA is"WE THE PEOPLE",we might win some converts! People on the other side might recognize how they are being played!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. CNN should be ashamed u should respect. President trump the storm has began .The swamp is being drained watch this space fake news .

  4. Why is this channel still insisting Trump said 'shit hole'? Was anyone from this news channel present at the meeting when this was alleged to happen? Or does this channel simply repeat news from other channels? Which ever is the case, for a channel labeled 'Trump Breaking News Network', it sure sounds biased against Trump. I'd like to think this channel is a trusted place for conservative news. Perhaps it isn't?
