CNN Bashes President Trump: “Tan Man” Doesn’t Care Americans Dying From Coronavirus

Having long since lost any semblance of sanity as a real journalist, CNN’s AC360 host and pundit Anderson Cooper began Tuesday’s show with a predictably sophomoric commentary masquerading as journalism with the chyron labeling it a “Keeping Them Honest” segment.

This time, Cooper employed his usual condescension, feigning of outrage, pauses, sighs, and slight tilts of the head to attack “artificially tan man” President Trump as someone who should be removed from his job. Worse yet, Cooper insisted Trump possessed no concern for the 136,000-plus dead Americans from the coronavirus.

Cooper based his latest partisan hackery on Trump’s Rose Garden remarks, which were one of many things the liberal media spent Tuesdays melting down over. Listing a few of the topics the President covered, Cooper boasted that Trump didn’t have an adoring crowd “who’d come to jeer and cheer and bask in the glow of this artificially tan man.”

Adding that “[h]is meandering screed was not close to anything one would expect or accept of a president but that shouldn’t surprise us,” Cooper lectured Americans as if those that chose him were too stupid to understand what they had done. And, in an adolescent aside, he expressing annoyance with the way Trump breathes:

That [speech near the Oval Office] too should not surprise us either. That’s how numb we are. We listened to this man muse and meander, rant and regurgitate the same tired tropes and untruthful claims. We watch him boast and brag and preen do that odd thing with his nose when he sucks in air very loudly and none of it surprises us. That’s how far we have fallen.

Reiterating the death toll, Cooper ruled that Trump was “misleading” in predicting the death tolls could have been higher were it not for actions by his administration.

Then came the despicable line in which he argued Trump doesn’t care about any of the dead: “The graves are still fresh but this President ignores them. He spreads more falsehoods and standing apart from so many others, opponents, and supporters alike, including within his own circle who are now beginning to face reality.”

Civility! Decency! Morals! Those are all things CNN claim to possess, but in reality, they’re more like The Bulwark or Lincoln Project in their hypocrisy.

After more pauses and sighs about the pandemic continuing to have a “crushing” effect on life and kneeling before Communist China in trusting their death tolls, Cooper brought on fellow TDS sufferer and chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta.

Hours after he said Trump “soiled” the Rose Garden, Acosta had more to say:

COOPER: Is there anyone around the President who, you know, shakes their head when they hear rambling in the Rose Garden like this?

ACOSTA: No, Anderson we are down to kool-aid drinkers and next of kin here at the Trump White House. There are no more adults that will level with the President and tell him he can’t deliver a rally-like rant in the Rose Garden as he did earlier this evening. The reason why that — that — that event took place in the Rose Garden was like a rally is because the way he just went into the lies, the myths and the truth-stretching that he does out on the campaign trail. You know, one of the reasons why the rallies aren’t covered as much more is because the President can’t be relied upon to tell the truth at those kinds of events and what he essentially did in the White House Rose Garden is transform one of the last places any presidential administration is supposed to be sort of removed from politics and plunged it head first into a cesspool of — of — of just campaign politicking….[T]here isn’t anyone to reign him in and make sure he doesn’t do that in the Rose Garden this evening, and what I think we’re left with for the rest of this campaign and the President using the Rose Garden like a rally space, what we saw tonight was a bait and switch. They told us it was going to be a press conference.

Amazingly, Cooper one-upped Acosta with another Biden campaign or audition tape by arguing Trump would be “relieved of duty” if this were the war that Trump has claimed we’re waging against the virus (click “expand”):

COOPER: The idea that in the midst of an attack on America, a president of the United States would, you know, not just continue to make the lies he does constantly but spend an hour in the Rose Garden with this rambling, you know, rift on all his greatest, you know gripes and — and — and grievances. He would be relieved of duty if he was a commander in chief. I mean, it was really extraordinary. If we’re under attack, this is what the president of the United States is doing and you know if he spend an hour doing it in front of reporters today, it’s what he does all day long to the — to the — you know, as you said, the kool-aid drinkers and the next of kin who are the only people who can stand to be around him any longer.


COOPER: Well, there’s no policy. He has no — there is no plan.


COOPER: There is no plan. There is no plan for opening schools. There is no plan.

ACOSTA: And most especially — exactly. Most especially schools.

COOPER: — for improving testing. There is no plan for the PPE, which we’re still freaking talking about PPE four months into this thing. It’s just stunning. I’ve got to —

ACOSTA: And you have to wonder — yeah. You have to wonder why he thinks the American people want to put children back in schools when he’s been wrong so many different occasions since the beginning of all this, Anderson.
