Left’s Reaction to Trump’s CNN Performance Catalyzes His Base

Trump really got under their skin yesterday. I really love that.

Don Lemon Squeezed Out at CNN

Don, we hardly knew ye.  Ah, who am I kidding, there was nothing to know.  Finally CNN got around to firing that useless mound of stupidity, Don Lemon.

Don lashed out at the network for ending his broadcasting reign of error:

“After 17 years at CNN I would have though that someone in management would have had the decency to tell me directly. At no time was I ever given any indication that I would not be able to continue to do the work I have loved at the network,” Lemon wrote. “It is clear that there are some larger issues at play.”

But CNN said they had offered to meet with him to explain to him just how awful an employee he was.

“Don Lemon’s statement about this morning’s events is inaccurate,” its communications team wrote in a statement. “He was offered an opportunity to meet with management but instead released a statement on Twitter.”

I attempted to interview friends of Lemon but discovered that none existed.  He will be missed by the cleaning lady who admitted that his office garbage pail was usually pretty clean.

Seriously, I guess someone will be sad about this.  Probably whoever is next in line over there to be fired.  Hopefully he’ll be scooped up by some other media outlet like Buzzfeed News.  Oh wait.

What is surprising to me is that CNN was able to justify firing a gay black man from a woke corporation based on his antagonizing white women employees.  That’s bold.  It challenges the whole intersectionality hierarchy.  Normally a gay black man can only be trumped in the hierarchy by a black transwoman or two latinx gender fluid females who suffer from lactose intolerance.  But who knows?  We’re living in strange times where you can’t depend on anything anymore.  Well anyway I’ll miss The Lemon.  His like will never be seen again.  I hope.


A Capitalist Tells CNN the Truth About Investing in Blue States

Don Lemon and his colleagues sit in shock as Kevin O’Leary tells them the sad truth that states like NY, NJ, MA and CA are dead zones for capital investment and new businesses.  Shockingly Lemon seems like the most realistic of the three “journalists” getting the news.  Pretty funny to watch.

Don Lemon and the Babylon Bee

Beautiful day.  Some sun, high fifties.  Kinda windy, but still.  The mallards have returned to the puddle.  They’re probably raising a family so that’s always a good opportunity for a photo or two.  As I’ve said this incredibly warm winter is a fantastic thing.  Daffodils are out of the ground and spring feels like it’s right around the corner.

Got a good laugh reading about Don Lemon putting his foot in his mouth again.  I always enjoy it when two different cohorts of the leftist coalition get into a slap fight.  And it’s a good one.  A gay black man and two middle aged white women fighting about when a woman is past her prime?


That’s a win-win if I ever heard one.  Don is so rankled by having to share the stage with women that he’s primed to start hissing and spitting even before anything is said.  I watched the event several times.  It’s wonderful.  These two women hate Don’s guts and the feeling is obviously mutual.

Some people are hoping he gets fired now.  But I hope they’re chained together for as long as possible.  The further adventures of this trio has train wreck written all over it.  Could Don make history by being the first gay man accused of rape by straight women?  I don’t see how but that is the card that these Karens are always hoping to play.  Maybe they could come up with some kind of psychic rape or some such thing.  They should at least try.

Don will probably accuse them of racism and homophobia.  And wouldn’t that be fun.  Think of it.  CNN would have its own white supremacist, gay bashing correspondents right there on their morning show.  They could be denounced by …, well, by everybody!  But just think what Joy Reid could do with this.  She would summon up visions of KKK marchers coming for Don’s head on a pike.  She would literally foam at the mouth.  It would be must see tv.

Then Don could sue CNN for a zillion dollars and call it reparations for his modern-day enslavement there at CNN.  MSNBC could cover it round the clock and eventually CNN would go out of business and everyone except Don Lemon would be glad.  Don unfortunately would be forced to find another gig.  Not such an easy thing for him anymore.

So, imagine a world in the future where both Don Lemon and the two shrews he’s battling with were disqualified from appearing on television because they were just too annoying for the majority of viewers.  Wouldn’t that be a wonderful world?  And the only question we have to ask is how do we get to that world?  Well, it seems clear.  We need to make it possible for people like that to be mocked as both stupid and unentertaining.

And we’ll know we’re there when Saturday Night Live is competing against something really funny like The Babylon Bee.  That’s right, when things that are actually funny are shown on the major media outlets, we’ll know that the woke virus has run its course and burned itself out.  And people can say what they really think without fear of being banished to oblivion by the gatekeepers and scolds.

The first tiny steps are happening.  Twitter has reinstated the Bee.  Hopefully enough people support the Bee by going to their site.  And if you’ve got some spare change become a member.  That will help.

It’s too bad we can’t stop paying for things like MSNBC and CNN that we don’t like.  The cable system doesn’t allow for that, which is a shame.  So, all we can do is throw a few bucks at the things that we do like.

Well, that’s what I thought about today.  Back to work.

CNN Just Keeps the Hits Coming – Jim Acosta On Deck

You know, I’m not sure if the new owners of CNN are serious about reentering real journalism or if they just need to replace the current occupants of their clown car because of the really bad smell coming from it.  But whatever the reason, they’ve provided me with some of the happiest news moments I’ve had since the 2016 election video montage.  Just think of it; Fredo, Harwood, Stelter, Toobin.  And now Jim Acosta?  What’s next?  Will they tell Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper they have to butch it up a little to keep their jobs?

Well, whatever it is all I can say is I hope it spreads to MSNBC and results in Morning Shmoe and his blushing bride Lycra Spandexy getting the boot from the Morning Shmoe show.  Well done CNN, well done.  And here’s hoping that Gentleman Jim Acosta lands on his feet and enjoys his new gig as a dog walker or pool boy somewhere in the greater DC metropolitan area.

Jim Acosta Next, But Not Last, To Be Let Go From CNN, Report

CNN Staffers Terrified, photog Busts a Gut Laughing

Man, I love this stuff.  Some of my favorite quotes:

CNN staffers said they fear a network-wide purge of top talent after Brian Stelter and White House correspondent John Hardwood were unceremoniously fired.

One CNN journalist told the Post: ‘People are freaked out. It almost feels like there’s a pattern. Is there a purge going on?

CNN staffers are ‘terrified’ after Brian Stelter and John Harwood were fired© Provided by Daily Mail.
Ah, how splendiferous.
And listen to how confused they are about what constitutes even-handed coverage:
CNN journalists, however, say the new boss has done little to elaborate on what his vision entails and what reporters should do to avoid coming off as partisan when reporting about major issues.

‘I think they’re hoping people will just guess what to do,’ one journalist told the Post.

And lastly look which names are on the top of the list of targets:

Viewers were speculating online that anchors could be next, with Don Lemon, a lightning rod for the right, being mentioned. Other popular anchors on the possible chopping block included Jim Acosta and Jake Tapper.

Karma can be a wonderful thing.

CNN Continues to Clean House, Bounces Harwood

And the beat goes on.  CNN fired their White House Correspondent John Harwood.  Immediately leftists in the press and the White House reacted with shrieks of outrage that another of their anointed has gotten kicked to the curb by CNN.

I’m starting to like this CNN CEO Chris Licht.  He’s firing all the people I despise the most at his company.  Maybe Don Lemon could be next?  Just a suggestion.

Well, between the three firings at CNN and the story that Chucky Todd is getting the boot off Meet the Press, I’m starting to think there is something good going on in the front offices of network news.  Maybe they’re tired of losing money.  Or maybe they know the wind is shifting.  Or maybe both.

Off With Their Heads!

The day started at 3am to accommodate an airport drop off.  Of course, I didn’t trust the alarm clock so I woke up at 1am and 2 am just to be sure.  Which explains this stream of semi-consciousness writing style you’re reading here.  The various schools are not in session this week so Camera Girl is working triple duty with grandkids all week (and double duty next week just for good measure).  So, we’re both zonked today.  Tomorrow will be better.

The summer must be over because I notice a definite uptick in site traffic.  It’s funny how that works.  I always enjoy seeing folks return.  It’s almost a proprietary interest, as if they’ve been slacking off, like some kind of digital prodigal sons.  I feel like I should go to www.fattedcalf.com and put in an e-order (great googly moogly, it’s a real website!).

Well, it’s still raining today, which is starting to get a bit annoying.  Sure, sure.  Drought bad, water good.  But that’s enough.  No one likes a show off.

I find I’m fed up looking at both sides of the Red Wave / Red Bust articles.  I really don’t care.  Either we trounce these dirtbags or we don’t.  Running around in circles with your hair on fire over it just makes you look stupid.  Especially since the pundits are trying to read the usual tea leaves that are about as authoritative as my late great aunt’s theories on how the Apollo moon missions were ruining her vegetable garden.

All I want to read about is what anyone who claims to be a leader on the right is doing to make our lives better.  That stunt that Governor Abbott is pulling by bussing illegal aliens to NYC and DC; that’s good stuff.  I want to hear more stuff like that.  DeSantis prosecuting election fraud perps; good stuff, keep it coming.  That’s all stuff that encourages the man on the street.  It’s tonic.  It makes us feel better.

And I loved the final broadcast of Brian Stelter.  His heroic stand against objective journalism was as pathetic, myopic and disingenuous as anything that has ever shown up on that Clown Car of a network CNN.  And now I’m hungry for more.  Don Lemon, Jim Acosta.  Hey how about Anderson Cooper?  It’s such a target rich environment.  Come on, Warner Bros. Discovery, give your audience what they want, blood.  Blue-green bug blood.  Bring out the guillotine and lop off a network anchor’s head every night.  Fish it out of the basket, show it to the crowd and then toss it to the soccer hooligans to kick around the street for the rest of the night.  I guarantee ratings will go through the roof.

And the same goes for MSNBC and even Fox.  They’ve all got plenty of phonies and sycophants.  Blithering idiots like Joe Scarborough, Juan Williams and Joy Reid are ripe for the razor.  And even if they are just metaphorical beheadings and all we get to see is these bozos making the walk of shame out of the corporate headquarters with the cardboard box full of coffee mugs and cheap Lucite awards it will still bring joy and plenty of clicks and streaming dollars to these former news networks.  No one is more hated than these pampered, brainless and thoroughly useless haircuts.

You know I feel better already.  There’s nothing like a good dose of schadenfreude to revive a sleep deprived conservative.  So, thank you CNN and thank you Brian Stelter for brightening up my day.  Keep up the good work.

CNN Fires Brian Stelter and Jeffrey Toobin

Huh.  Maybe CNN really does want to be considered an actual news network.  Well anyway, whatever else CNN does they’ve just made tv less stupid and less creepy by a wide margin.  Brian Stelter wasn’t the stupidest person at CNN because Don Lemon is still there.  And Toobin was the infamous zoom masturbator.  How could anyone top that for skin crawling repulsiveness.

So is it possible that the new owners of CNN have thought about what an actual news organization would consist of and are now trying to put one together?  It’s a tantalizing idea.  It’s been so long since a network even pretended to play it right down the middle that it would feel almost unnatural.  But it’s a hell of an idea.

Of course, I’ll wait to see if they get rid of the rest of the woke crew there.  But maybe it’s true.  Meanwhile the thought of Stelter and Toobin on the unemployment line is a rare pleasure.  And it remains to be seen if anyone would actually employ either one of them again in any capacity.  Each one is loathsome in several ways.  Possibly we’re at the beginning of a cycle where no one needs people like them for anything.  It’s a pleasant thought.
