CNN Personality Breaks Rank, Slams Democrats, and Now They’re Turning on Her

CNN has widely become known as the anti-Trump network due to its blatant bias.

The network’s newest hire Kasie Hunt learned her lesson the hard way by being scolded for criticizing Democrats.

Hunt joined CNN this month after eight years with another liberal network — MSNBC.

Hunt took to Twitter and boldly decided to break rank with CNN’s bias, left-leaning “journalists” by calling out California Governor Gavin Newsom.

“One of the top Democrats in the country got caught living like an elite while everyone else suffered,” Hunt said about Newsom.

“Elites vs. the rest is the driving force in our politics right now and Democrats have a tough needle to thread,” she continued.

“Democrats need to prove they can govern for EVERYBODY,” Hunt wrote.

“Obviously California is a Special Place — but the fact that a Democratic national star in waiting *faced* a recall and then had to fight hard for it midway through the campaign does say a lot about the potential challenges Democrats face across the map,” Hunt continued.

“Especially if President Biden can’t demonstrate he’s capable of getting the resurgent pandemic under control, has another competence crisis a la Afghanistan, can’t get his budget plan through Congress, etc.”

This opinion didn’t sit well with liberals.

Fox News sums up the reactions:

Hunt’s former MSNBC colleague Malcolm Nance didn’t appreciate her analysis.

“Oh this is just plain old stupid,” Nance wrote…

Activist Darlene McDonald reacted, “How does a really good news anchor get this so very wrong? We all make mistakes. I employ Ms Hunt to take a second look at this and perhaps, rewrite it with a renewed outlook. I’m not giving up on her. She’s better than this take.”

Far-left, former MSNBC star Keith Olbermann declared it is “genuinely hard to believe you have spent any days prior to this one covering politics.”

Musician John Legend even reprimanded CNN’s new reporter.

“He faced a recall because it’s ridiculously easy to start a recall in California. He won in a landslide that probably won’t reflect much erosion from his last election, if any,” Legend wrote. “This analysis seems to be ignoring these very salient points.”
