The Democrats held their fourth debate on Tuesday night, and when the smoke cleared there were three obvious takeaways.
1) CNN has no shame. Two days after Project Veritas exposed the blatant bias of the left-wing lobbying organization (not news organization) known as CNN, celebrity anchor Anderson Cooper went to the mat for his Trump-hating boss Jeff Zucker.
A newsman would have grilled former Vice President Joe Biden about the apparent conflict of interest created by his son getting a sweetheart deal from a Ukrainian energy company while Joe was the Obama administration’s point person on Ukrainian policy. But Cooper is not a newsman; he is an opinion influencer, and his job working for Zucker is to support Democrats.
Listen to this absurd question that Cooper asked Biden:
“President Trump has falsely accused your son of doing something wrong while serving on a company board if Ukraine. I want to point out there’s no evidence of wrongdoing by either one of you.
“My question is: If it’s not OK for a president’s family to be involved in foreign businesses, why was it OK for your son when you were vice president?”
Say what? How embarrassing! Couldn’t Cooper have just thrown the softball question and not also provided the full-throated denunciation of the president as a liar?!? Isn’t that supposed to be Biden’s job?
The fact that the American public has thus far expressed no shock or dismay about the CNN whistleblower proving that Zucker is running a Democratic Party subsidiary at his “news” channel just shows that no one took CNN seriously anymore. Everyone knows they are in the tank for Biden and the rest of the Dems, so what else is new?!?
2) Kamala Harris won’t ever be president. Not only is she shrill and unlikable, but she may be a complete moron as well. What idiot adviser gave her the idea of promoting “Abortion for All” under the premise that “women have been given the responsibility to perpetuate the human species”?
Did anyone else experience cognitive dissonance when she used procreation as the justification for murdering children? I suspect so because I looked at dozens of stories touting Harris’s pro-abortion answer and not one dared to quote this part of her answer.
Maybe she would have gotten more viral buzz if she had paraphrased Lesley Gore, “It’s my body, and I’ll kill if I want to.”
3) The only remotely sane Democrats in the stage were the two most unlikely to be nominated — Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard. ‘Nuff said?
