CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota — who's made little effort to hide her disdain for President Donald Trump on the "Facts First" network — gave full flight to her bias on the Friday episode of "New Day" over the lack of action against Trump since the Mueller report went public.
Sitting next to co-anchor John Berman, Camerota indeed looked and sounded dejected: "I guess my point, John — and I'm sorry if I sound like they've broken my spirit, however ..."
"But that's what it sounds like," Berman replied. "But I think that's the goal, too."
With that, Camerota launched into a speech that one might expect from a left-wing pundit or Democratic operative as opposed to a news anchor ( indeed "New Day" is listed under CNN's "news" category):
Well, it's worked. Because I think that I am channeling many members of the American public who feel that these past two years have been disheartening for people who believe in justice .. the reason that I say that is because you see in the Mueller report ample evidence laid out of obstruction — of what Robert Mueller considered obstruction — but nothing happens. You see violations of the emoluments clause, but nothing happens. You see nepotism, but nothing happens.
Here's the clip:
- In the wake of the Pittsburgh synagogue mass murder last fall, Camerota seemed to repeatedly try to get Jeffrey Myers, rabbi for the synagogue, to blame Trump. It didn't work.
- A year before that, Camerota also tried to bait a Gold Star mother into bashing Trump — and again, it didn't work.
- But to her credit, she also has called out Democrats for not negotiating with Trump over border security.
