Don Lemon kicks Jason Miller's sorry ass out the door, down the hall, through the door,

and into the gutter, where it belongs

anybody see that, where Miller, when asked how Trump can be believed when he says he has no business ties in Russia, answers....not kidding:

''Because he SAID so!"

he really said that.

Lemon then instantly trotted out about five big lies in rapid fire succession, making other panelists laugh, and proving, once again, that he can be a real journalist when sufficiently provoked

a YUUUUUGE kudos to you, Don!

and, yes, kudos is singular, not plural

EDIT: I wondered why I keep seeing this double plus good jagoff on cnn allatime. I think there was a thread about this>>>>

http://m.dailykos.com/story/2017/03/09/1641518/-Once-again-showing-contempt-for-viewers-CNN-hires-another-Trump-campaign-liar

For the record: CNN's election coverage was uninformed, uninformative, crude, insincere, aggressively issue-averse, and in many cases consisted of propaganda claims pulled directly from the Trump campaign. It was actively insulting to its viewers and unwatchable for anyone who desired more from national political coverage than loud shouting and key-jingling distractions. This was almost entirely due to 1.) Jeffrey Lord and 2.) the inclusion of "pro-Trump" voices culled from Trump's own campaign, who repeatedly and unapologetically lied about even basic facts with little to no pushback from the hosts and, apparently, no network regard for whether or not regularly distributing false information under the supposed banner of "news" was a disservice to their viewers or damaging to the country itself.

Miller continues that tradition.

He is pro-Trump—and was egregiously dishonest in that role. His praise for this or that Trump notion, and his praise the next day for Trump perhaps reversing his opinion, and the day after that for Trump perhaps declaring that he never had any opinions at all, is no more relevant to the national conversation than the flat-earthers. It is steaming garbage of the sort that would do well on North Korean television, but something we are supposed to be “above” in our own Enlightened Informed Democracy.

CNN president Jeff Zucker has repeatedly defended the network’s decision to hire Trump surrogates to serve as contributors, arguing that if they were not on the channel's panels, there would be no pro-Trump voices.

3. they have that awful blond (not Kayleigh) on right now, who parroted all that crap,

denying ANY culpability, blaming hillary's loss on a bunch of garbage like spiking the football before the game is over, and going for an electoral strategy, running an incompetent campaign, etc.

you get the drill

what a joke

another KGOP idiot shill said it's not smart to compare Trump to a 'regular' or normal president, or somesuch

Lemon is NOT buying this garbage, tearing the guy up.

the guy says americans are pissed off at the elites in media and government "freaking out and hyperventilating" over what's happening, instead of concentrating on health care

Lemon is letting the fool hang himself, dig himself deeper with every laughable rationalization

6. He's been pretty strong for months now. I watch him sometimes for a change of pace...

from MSNBC.

He's stopping the repug talking points and obfuscations regularly now, and stopping them in mid-sentence so they don't get it out on to the air.

7. he was supposed to be the WHCD (communications director), but quit before trump

squatted at 1600

here's how the trumpsters own AJ Delgado saw Miller's departure, and its aftermath:

“When you try to put on a brave face and tweet about nonsense to distract, your feed looks like @JasonMillerinDC’s,” she mysteriously said. She intimated further that Miller was not leaving of his own accord initially. “When people need to resign graciously and refuse to, it’s a bit … spooky.”

Responding to another user on Twitter, Delgado explicitly said that she was referring to Miller who she said “needed to resign…. yesterday.”

13. Like we never knew or anything, but this sucker Zucker willfully admits that they employ

biased news panelists. Certainly the politico works both ways but it Certainly is Not News.
