WOW! CNN Talking Head Started Talking Trump And Had A Full On Temper Tantrum!
There’s this little thing called decorum that is severely lacking with most liberal news personalities these days. I have seen plenty of news people in the past publicly say that they disagreed with whatever a sitting President had to say. They did it with dignity.
They didn’t do it the way a five year old who didn’t get his way would act. They didn’t yell obscenities the way a drunk in a bar would act. They didn’t go full on Fareed. Like many of the opinion givers crowding journalism today, Fareed Zakaria does not like Donald Trump.
He does not like Trump’s policies. He does not like Trump’s personality. And he does not like many of the things Trump has done in the past. Fareed is not a guy you would expect to see sipping a glass of Trump Wine with his dinner at a Trump hotel, to put it mildly.
In fact, just before the presidential election, Fareed laid out a case against voting for Trump, saying that the Republican’s core beliefs are racism, sexism, protectionism, xenophobia, and authoritarianism.
Yet despite his disdain for the president, Fareed had always attempted to comport himself in a manner befitting his brilliant academic career. This may no longer be the case.
In a recent appearance on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, the bilingual Ivy League-educated Zakaria resorted to the language of the barroom to express his contempt for the President.
*Warning for graphic language*
“He has spent his whole life bullshitting. He has succeeded by bullshitting. He has gotten to the presidency by bullshitting,” It is very hard to tell somebody at that point that bullshit doesn’t work, because look at the results, right?”
Fareed’s choice of language may come as a surprise to many in his audience who have become accustomed to hearing him deliver his Trump attacks in a much more erudite manner. But it does not yet seem as though his choice of language will elicit either an apology or reprimands from his Trump-hostile network.
