On CNN Tuesday, as pundits discussed the upcoming midterms in light of last week’s madness surrounding the Kavanaugh confirmation, host Brooke Baldwin made sure to protect the Left’s reputation…to whatever degree such a thing might be possible.
She didn’t want anyone on the show to refer to the chanting, please-arrest-me crowd proclaiming all kinds of craziness at the Capitol — or the leftist gang responsible for Ted Cruz and his wife’s outrageous harassment at a restaurant (please see here) — as a “mob.”
In fact, Baldwin banned the “m-word.”
Matt Lewis, network contributor and writer for the Daily Beast, suggested the unhinged madness of the Left galvanized the GOP.
“Republicans, they’re the team that needed the excitement, the passion, the energy. They didn’t have it. In midterms, that’s what matters for turnout. And now, I think they do.”
“I believe it’s the overreaction of the Left. When you see people like Ted Cruz getting chased out of restaurants by a mob— “
“Oh, you’re not going to use the ‘mob’ word here. Matt…Matt…”
Lewis was undeterred:
“It’s totally a mob. It is without a doubt. There’s no other word for it.”
Brooke wasn’t having it.
How many times has CNN actually needed to correct a guest when their assertions were entirely ludicrous?
Here are a few reminders of things people have said on CNN recently, as covered by Yours Truly (please check them out):
- Trump is enacting a hostile takeover of the courts.
- All people who voted for Trump are racist.
- Trump is pooping on you.
Does this look like a mob to you?–
BREAKING. Activists just chased @TedCruz out of a fancy Washington DC restaurant, chanting “We Believe Survivors!”
Cruz has been friends with creep Kavanaugh for 20 years. Now Cruz is on judiciary committee hearing his testimony.

Perhaps CNN is a mob. A mob of poop.

Does driving people out of restaurants and banging on the Supreme Court walls sound “pretty mobby” to you? pic.twitter.com/2fiIyzedXF
