Funny isn’t it?
If you wander over to CNN’s website today, it’s clear that all their panic about President Trump bringing us to the brink of nuclear war over a tweet has already been forgotten.
Now all they seem to care about is a so-called “tell-all” book about the Trump campaign.
Call me cynical. But it seems to me that if you can switch gears so quickly and completely, all the hysterics over Trump’s nuclear button tweet was, well, bullshit.
How else do you explain the shift from ”Dear God! Trump is going to kill us all!!!!” to ”Ooooh! Look at all the tabloid dirt!!!” in less than 24 hours?
It would be laughable if it wasn’t so pathetic.
See, this is why I never believe all their histrionics over Trump’s tweeting.
If CNN or MSNBC really believed that a tweet from Donald Trump could careen us into nuclear war, they wouldn’t be so easily distracted by shiny objects.
This is the problem with setting your hair on fire every two or three days.
After a while, people stop paying you any mind or taking you seriously.
The sudden switch from hyperventilating about nuclear war to gorging on D.C. gossip makes me think the nuclear war freakout was just a wee bit fake.

And that’s it, right there.
CNN has become the Page Six of cable news – if Page Six was run by high school cheerleaders.
As I said in my May 18, 2017 column The Mean Girls of CNN:
I’ve gotten to the point where just seeing a video clip from CNN makes me feel like I’m back in high school.
Except, instead of being intimidated by the mean girls, I find them all manner of ridiculous.
Let’s face it. The tactics of high school Mean Girls only work in, well, high school.
When adults (or borderline adults in the case of Kate Bolduan), behave this way, it makes them look all kinds of stupid.
Do everyone a favor ladies. Either grow up and act like, you know, journalists, or join the bitchy broads from The View.
And if The View doesn’t want you, here’s a thought. Why not just go back to high school?
Since, apparently, you never left.
Real “journalists” report on the news.
You know. Things like an uprising in Iran or the DOW going above 25,000 for the first time in history.
But instead, CNN, like snippy teenage girls, alternate between hysterical tantrums over nothing and mean-girl gossip.
Meanwhile, there is real news happening.
Report: Memos that ex-FBI Director Comey leaked to a professor to defend Comey in the press are so sensitive, lead Senator was only allowed to view them in secret room SCIF. Some of leaked info was classified. https://t.co/vpvOSp4JQ4

Just don’t expect to find it happening on CNN.
