CNN: ‘Obesely Immoral’ Trump Is a ‘Psychopath,’ Refused to Condemn Racists



Mere moments after their colleagues cursed out Tuesday’s Presidential debate a “shit show” and suggested President Trump was actively trying to bring the country “down with him,” AC360 host Anderson Cooper raged as he led the largely liberal panel in a hate fest against the President.

Addressing senior political commentator and former Obama advisor David Axelrod, Cooper literally pounded his fist on the desk as he denounced Trump as “obesely immoral” with “not a moral fiber” in him:

David Axelrod, I mean, I don’t think we have seen a president of the United States completely lacking in shame. I mean, just shameless and obesely immoral. I mean, there’s not a moral fiber in this man. I don’t know what came out of the debate. I don’t know what side won. I don’t know what voters want. But you cannot have watched that debate — I would think, and be proud of our President. [Pounds hand on desk] The way he thinks of us as viewers as Americans who are trying to decide about the future of the country. Can anybody come away from that debate knowing what Donald Trump wants for the next four years?

“Does any of this surprise you, Anderson,” Axelrod responded. He went on to say that Trump had gone “way overboard” and “may have ended his presidency tonight with his performance.”

The panel then looked to senior political commentator and former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) because Axelrod had noted that he predicted Trump would come in hot. Cooper was incensed by Santorum’s laughter at how right he was and berated his guest:

 

 

COOPER: No, but it’s not even funny. Are you proud of the President of the United States?!

SANTORUM: I think the President overplayed his hand. Look, here’s what I saw on stage tonight. What I saw was a president who — you can hear it by him reciting the things that happened to him throughout the presidency. This Durham report, all the things that were going on. He feels like he has been mistreated and by the prior administration–

“Yeah, all the narcissists and all psychopaths feel that but it does not make it true,” Cooper sneered.

Not long after that, chief political analyst Gloria Borger proclaimed Trump had “[taken] the presidency and the office of the presidency to a new low” by “playing victim when 200,000 plus people have died from COVID-19.”

And no collection of CNN hot takes would be complete without the ramblings of leftist activist Van Jones. For his part, Jones pushed the false media narrative that Trump “refused to condemn white supremacy”:

Only three things happened for me tonight. Number one, Donald Trump refused. Number two, the President of the United States refused to condemn white supremacy. Number three, the Commander-in-Chief refused to condemn white supremacy on the global stage, in front of my children, in front of everybody’s families. And he was given the opportunity multiple times to condemn white supremacy. And he have a wink and a nod to a racist, Nazi, murderous organization that has now celebrating online.

But the full context, the transcript showed that Trump had mentioned the Proud Boys after demanding moderator Chris Wallace to give him a name of a group to condemn, and Joe Biden chimed in with the name. And the main take away was Trump saying “sure” after Wallace had asked: “Are you willing tonight to condemn white supremacists and militia groups?”

Those are the facts. But CNN refuses to put them first. This is CNN.

ANDERSON COOPER: Jake, thank you very much. Um – [stutters a bunch] David Axelrod, I mean, I don’t think we have seen a president of the United States completely lacking in shame. I mean, just shameless and obesely immoral. I mean, there’s not a moral fiber in this man. I don’t know what came out of the debate. I don’t know what side won. I don’t know what voters want. But you cannot have watched that debate — I would think, and be proud of our President. [Pounds hand on desk] The way he thinks of us as viewers as Americans who are trying to decide about the future of the country. Can anybody come away from that debate knowing what Donald Trump wants for the next four years?

DAVID AXELROD: Does any of this surprise you, Anderson?

COOPER: No. But to see it on such full display.

AXELROD: The guy on that stage tonight is the guy we’ve seen for four years. Rick Santorum predicted what he would do. The question is, Rick, whether he over torqued it and went overboard. I would say way overboard. And I don’t think that he is going to profit from this. I think Donald Trump may have ended his presidency tonight with his performance.
