Thursday on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, washed-up CNN political analyst Carl Bernstein called Donald Trump a “secessionist, seditious president of the United States who inspired and celebrated a riot to burn down the Capitol.”
Asked if he thought the end to Trump’s presidency is” much worse than Nixon’s,” Bernstein replied, “Well, first of all, Nixon was not a secessionist, seditious president of the United States who inspired and celebrated a riot to burn down the Capitol, which is really what occurred. He encouraged it. Those people went there because of his incitement.”
That is not what really occurred. There was no riot by Trump supporters to burn down the Capitol, nor did Trump incite any violence. But that is the leftist media Narrative being promulgated by purportedly serious, objective journalists like Bernstein.
“Nixon was in a different category in that regard,” Bernstein pontificated. “He was a real criminal president who deserved having to leave office, and Republicans got him out of office, forced his resignation. Very different than what we’ve seen with Trump. The Republicans have enabled him and allowed him to stay in office. We saw in the House yesterday how Republicans continued to defend him, don’t want to see him impeached and convicted.”
Because Trump committed no impeachable or criminal offenses, that’s why.
