CNN is the network where Democrat criticism goes to die. But this weekend, a guest evaded the network’s screening process and unleashed a savage takedown of Biden’s policies, all while the CNN regulars sat in astonished silence.
The brutal rant all started when Anderson Cooper turned to Scott Jennings, former Special Asst. to President George W. Bush, and asked him to remark on the Biden presidency. Watch:
“I never imagined how quickly this would all unfold,” Jennings began.
“The person they sold on the campaign,” he continued. ” The nice old moderate Grandpa who just wanted to help everybody get along and compromise is not what we got over the past year.”

“He has no mandate, really, to do much of anything,” he went on. “It’s amazing that he got a couple of things done when the mandate was pretty clear: 50/50 Senate and near 50/50 House, and a pretty close presidential election.”
“The mandate was simply ‘replace Donald Trump and don’t do anything drastic or stupid,” Jennings said. “And yet everything about this agenda is extremely drastic. And he’s been angrier than I think people expected, he’s been more divisive, he’s been more partisan.”
“You look at the issues. We built five years of coverage on Trump out of Russia, COVID, and democracy,” he added. “The president, in his press conference, invites Russia to invade the Ukraine. We have more [COVID] deaths under Biden than Trump. And now we have the president and the vice president question the legitimacy of the 2022 election? Are we any better off on these issues that we crucified Trump over?”
“I think he has a lot of political problems,” he said. “And an AP poll came out this morning, only 28 percent of Americans want the sitting president to run for re-election. And fewer than half of Democrats.”
“This is a disaster,” he concluded.
Wow. You don’t have to agree with everything Jennings said to get the gist that a sea change is taking place when a CNN guest can demolish a Democratic president so succinctly and thoroughly and not get interrupted or thrown off the air.
There is a reason CNN lost 90% of its ratings after smearing Donald Trump for four years. Yet the only bigger disaster than CNN in America right now is the Biden presidency.
