Leftist CNN guest host John Berman showed his extreme bias when former “Face The Nation” host Bob Schieffer gave an honest and glowing assessment of President Trump’s outstanding speech in Saudi Arabia. Schieffer told Berman he thought President Trump sounded very “presidential.” Herman, who was clearly agitated by Schieffer’s honesty, arrogantly snapped back at Schieffer suggesting his comments could affect their viewers opinion of Trump by “normalizing” him. Herman continued with his embarrassingly biased rant, “You’re saying because he met this admittedly very low bar for not sounding foolish, in fact, he was in fact presidential. What would you say to criticism like that?”
Bob Schieffer is an old-school newsman. There’s no doubt that the former Face the Nationhost leans left, but he is still capable of reporting, you know, the news. That is too much for denizens of the modern MSM to tolerate.
On today’s Reliable Sources on CNN, Schieffer reported the glaringly obvious truth: that President Trump gave a good speech in Saudi Arabia today. Guest host John Berman had to push back: “you know, Bob, though, that there will be people who look at that last comment you made and say you’re normalizing the president.”
Schieffer gave the perfect response: he wasn’t trying to normalize Trump, he was trying to do what reporters [are supposed to] do: report.
