CNN’s Cillizza Steps In It With Comments on Pelosi’s Cancelled Trip
This afternoon, President Donald J. Trump epically cancelled an overseas trip scheduled by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, including Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.)
The political left, including CNN, was not thrilled. Many viewed the move as retaliation for Pelosi’s threat of cancelling Trump’s State of the Union speech, scheduled for Jan. 29.
One leftist activist disguised as a CNN reporter, Chris Cillizza, characterized Trump’s move as “taking the low road.”
“Taking the low road. Always,” Cillizza said on Twitter, attaching a piece in which he described Trump’s actions as “childish one-upmanship.”

But just yesterday, Cillizza praised Pelosi’s petulant threat of cancelling Trump’s national address as a “power move.”
“Nancy Pelosi just pulled a major power move on Donald Trump’s State of the Union,” said Cillizza’s headline.
The piece was a gushing appraisal of the 78-year-old Speaker’s political prowess.
“Make no mistake: Pelosi’s decision to disinvite Trump from delivering his ‘State of the Union’ address to Congress is a total power play designed to remind Trump that a) Congress is a co-equal branch of government and b) his willingness to keep the government shuttered until he gets money for a border wall is going to have impacts on him, too,” CNN said.
The bias is not difficult to spot.
When Pelosi takes a swing at Trump, it’s a “power play.” When Trump swings back, it is characterized as “childish.”
CNN, like the rest of the leftist press, is a complete joke not to be taken seriously as a source of news.
