CNN: Congress Is In Total War, And It’s All Trump’s Fault

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This “analysis” piece, as in, it’s total opinion, is the top story on CNN at the moment, so, not actual news is #1. Surprise? It also looks like CNN just can’t give up on Trump Derangement Syndrome, but, then, that’s a lot easier than explaining why Joe is blowing off wearing a mask and, oh, yeah, destroying American jobs

Trump’s legacy of mistrust sends Congress into total war

Former President Donald Trump may be gone from the White House but his legacy of catastrophic mistrust is poisoning Washington, dimming hopes of a unified effort to crush the pandemic before mutant viral strains take root.

Nine days after newly sworn-in President Joe Biden told America that “every disagreement doesn’t have to be a cause for total war,” recriminations between the parties and the Republican meltdown are consuming Congress.

It’s now clear that the January 6 mob attack on Capitol Hill, while failing in its bid to reverse Trump’s election loss, has utterly fractured the basic level of trust needed to make a political system function — at a critical national moment.

In the quarter century of bitter political battles since former speaker Newt Gingrich’s Republican revolution, Washington has never been this inflamed.

At times on Thursday, it appeared that the whole of Congress was fixated on its own civil wars, cut off from behind its high iron fence from the reality of America’s darkest modern winter.

Interesting. Democrats have been at total war since Bush was elected with the backdrop of Clinton’s impeachment, and CNN had zero problem with the invective launched at Bush, Dick Cheney, and the whole administration. Condi Rice, a black woman, was treated disgustingly. Barack Obama did a very good job at dividing us, especially since he was so untrustworthy. He would negotiate in good faith, then renege and/or demand more. That’s what led to the big shutdown. We’ve seen Democrats go Category 5 Moonbat since Trump won election, willing to go to war on everything, but, hey, now that Republicans are being the dissenters, and willing to fight CNN has an issue.

Oh, hey, perhaps attempting to impeach then convict a guy no longer in office, a quixotic attempt when they know they can’t get 67 votes, isn’t helping. I’m sure there are lots of examples of Dems starting it you can offer, right?

And with more than 432,000 Americans dead from Covid-19 and the economy in ruins, hopes are fading — amid the acrimony — of a bipartisan effort to beef up the crucial vaccine drive.

Remember how Democrats held off on doing a second big stimulus for almost eight months because they wanted to hurt Trump, and couldn’t have cared less about the American people?

The magnitude of that death toll has much to do with Trump’s neglect when he was in office. The tumultuous forces now rocking Capitol Hill are, in most cases, linked to Trump or the extremism of his acolytes who have fully bought into his alternative reality that rejected truth and democracy itself.

Told you this was opinion. I don’t think it was Trump putting COVID patients in nursing homes, etc and so forth. You know this all.

In another sign of the toxicity paralyzing Congress, House Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York lashed out at Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who had appeared to agree with her on the need for an investigation probing chaos on Wall Street. The New York Democrat, who has said she felt her life was in danger during the insurrection, tweeted that “you almost had me murdered.” Just before a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol, Cruz had objected to the certification of Arizona’s electoral votes, embracing the baseless allegations from Trump of an improper election.

Strangely, no words of admonition from CNN for AOC going unhinged. (as usual)

The pandemonium on Capitol Hill contrasts with the methodical calm that now prevails at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue just over a week into Biden’s presidency.

That’s right, CNN is fan-boying. I’ll stop on this big of lapdog.
