CNN and MSNBC: "We could get away with our BS if only it wasn't for that pesky President!"

Everyone has heard by now how the lid has been blown off the fake news cauldron that is CNN. James O'Keefe, the intrepid conservative activist and founder of Project Veritas, sent one of his reporters to have a chat with the network's executive producer John Bonifield. This is a mere snippet from the exposé, yet it speaks volumes:
O'Keefe: (Voiceover) One story has monopolized President Trump's time in office like no other. Especially on CNN: Russia. In fact, since the inauguration CNN has mentioned Russia on their air nearly 16,000 times. So we sent our undercover reporters inside CNN to understand why and to determine if CNN even believes that the story is real. You're not going to believe what you're about to hear—or maybe you will. I'd like to introduce you to CNN's supervising producer John Bonifield in Atlanta. 
Reporter: So you believe the Russia thing's a little crazy, right? 
Bonifield: Even if Russia was trying to swing the election, we try to swing their elections. Our CIA is doing shit all the time. We're out there trying to manipulate governments. Like, you win because you know the game and you play it right. We just didn't play it right. 
Reporter: So why is CNN constantly like, 'Russia this, Russia that'? 
Bonifield: Because it's ratings. 
Reporter: Because it's ratings? 
Bonifield: Our ratings are incredible right now. 
O'Keefe: In May, CNN's ratings were significantly higher than they were the year before. The Russia story, and Trump, have made CNN millions.
Bonifield also told the Project Veritas reporter that after CNN's "reporting" on the Paris Climate Change Accord, chief executive Jeff Zucker informed everyone at the network to concentrate on the Russia story again. In the wake of this revelation, three "journalists" at CNN resigned, joining the ever-growing pile of rejects jettisoned from the network, including Kathy Griffin and Reza Aslan.
Not long after Bonifield admitted that the completely manufactured Russia story was all about ratings, the socialist agitator and host of "The Messy Truth" on CNN, Van Jones, opined that the Trump-Russia collusion narrative was "a nothingburger."
Finally, O'Keefe highlighted an associate producer for CNN's "New Day" program, Jimmy Carr, for bashing the American electorate. The reporter asks Carr about the legitimacy of questioning "the intellect of the American voter." Carr replied, "Oh, no. They're stupid as shit."
How does CNN fight back? By having Sesame Street's Elmo on a Facebook Live stream talking about how sad he felt that Syrian children could not come to America. Because it's all about the children for liberals, y'know? If that was really the case, maybe they could bring themselves to care about the nearly 60 million that were exterminated in the womb since 1973, and stop demanding the government funding of Planned Parenthood which does to newborn babies what even Josef Mengele would have refused to do. They could also consider the rotten public education they have saddled "the children" with through the Department of Education, Common Core and militant teacher's unions. They might even—gosh!—stop encouraging their sexualization at ever younger ages which does nothing to support their emotional development but does a shit-ton of damage to their psyches.


Oops, there I go getting tangential again ... If CNN treating Elmo like a war-weary, objective reporter is not asinine enough for you, we have MSNBC and the shenanigans of the "Morning Joe" show to really take your breath away.
After taking months of abuse—the usual unsubstantiated assertions that the country is being ruined by his presidency—from hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, the President, on June 29, explained on Twitter: "I heard poorly rated @MorningJoe speaks badly of me. Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve and insisted on joining me? She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!"
President Donald Trump may have been in the wrong to criticize Mika Brzezinski in such a fashion. That may demonstrate that he has not learned anything from the fallout over Megyn Kelly and the "blood coming out of her wherever" observation during the primaries. Brzezinski shot back by pulling a Little Marco, tweeting a close-up of a Cheerios box in which the statement "Made For Little Hands" is highlighted.
What may have been the final straw that prompted such a harsh tweet from the President is when Brzezinski had previously said on the program, "Nothing makes a man feel better than making a fake cover of a magazine about himself, lying every day and destroying the country."
So Trump made up some TIME magazine covers to hang around his golf clubs. Naturally, it's the end of the world. Along with the fact that he gets two scoops of ice cream at White House soirées while everyone else gets one. A riveting, breaking-news story, I should mention, provided by CNN. I'm surprised they didn't have Big Bird reporting on that one.
MSNBC is predictably crying foul. Trump, with the unsolicited help of O'Keefe, has just set one propagandist organization aflame. Time to take down another. Mark Kornhole Kornblau, the senior vice president of communications for NBC Universal, responded, "Never imagined a day when I would think to myself, 'it is beneath my dignity to respond to the President of the United States.'"
Yet the fact remains, Scarborough and Brzezinski were Trump's biggest fans in the wake of his electoral victory and during his inauguration and proceeded to turn on him for, you know, the ratings, and the fact that they dare not defy the puppet-master with the deep pockets. If you're CNN or MSNBC, you don't say no to George Soros.
What's really hilarious about the whole "Morning Joe" saga? Brzezinski and Scarborough could have taken the high road, but the day after news of the Twitter war between them and the President broke, they instead dedicated the entirety of the show to that nonsense. Brzezinski pretended to care about the President, alleging that he's unwell. "We're okay. The country's not," Crazy Mika opined.
Again, if you think the President's tweets against Brzezinski and the "Morning Joe" show and MSNBC are unwarranted, consider this. Brian Flood from Yahoo!'s "The Wrap" feature lists sixteen insults that the duo launched at Trump, including "schmuck," "jackass," and "bumbling dope".
One of the insults cited is the guest appearance by Donny Deutsch, a major-league douchebag who quite clearly suffers from small man syndrome, who criticized the President's looks. In "going thug" and noting that the President "picked the wrong schoolyard to come into," Deutsch launched his attack on Trump:
He's physically disgusting to look at. I mean, that's what I find ironic about the way he starts to always go after other people's physical attributes. So, beyond the fact that he’s obviously not well ... forget, obviously, the obvious [misogyny], the obvious vulgarity, the obvious stupidity, he's not mentally okay. We have to start paying attention to it, and he's disgusting to look at.

 
I look like Mark Zuckerberg's long-lost cousin, yet I think I have the right to bash the President's appearance.

Donny, I know you went to the same business school that Mr. Trump attended and that you made millions, but you can still in no way match the President's success. People had heard of Donald Trump many years before he even ran for the nation's top job. No-one, except "Morning Joe"'s continually shrinking audience, has ever heard of you. You are a fake tough guy, to go along with the fake news channel you appear on. You're just embarrassing yourself. But then, you are an embarrassment. A shit-smear in the toilet bowl that is the mainstream media.
Step into the Nightdragon's schoolyard, Mr. Deutsch, you big-mouth. I'll sort you out, son. I'll see what I can do to improve your looks.
Happy Fourth of July, everyone.
