Lemon and Cuomo beclown themselves over Rod Rosenstein’s resignation and it’s hilarious

CNN host and purported journalist Don Lemon, a believer in so-called “white terrorism,” appears to be having severe difficulty digesting Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s resignation letter. So much so that he now suspects the deputy AG might be a “double agent” …

The segment could easily be mistaken for a comedy routine.

On Monday the deputy AG issued a public resignation letter to President Donald Trump announcing his May 11 resignation. Despite his sometimes turbulent relationship with the president, Rosenstein went out of his way to praise Trump, thanking him for his “courtesy and humor.”

Conversely, he seemed to go out of his way to take flagrant shots at the media.

“We enforce the law without fear or favor because credible evidence is not partisan, and truth is not determined by opinion polls. We ignore fleeting distractions and focus our attention on the things that matter, because a republic that endures is not governed by the news cycle,”  he wrote.

Read the full letter below:

To Lemon, the purpose of the letter seemed clear enough — “[t]o give a big wet kiss to the president.” What flummoxed him and fellow CNN host and purported journalist Chris Cuomo, however, was why Rosenstein had chosen to go out by praising Trump versus dissing him.

“We know he’s been partisan, especially when it comes to the Mueller letter, and concerned about his own firing during the entire process,” Lemon argued Monday evening on “Cuomo Prime Time.”

Lemon and other partisan “journalists” believe that the decision by Rosenstein and Attorney General Bill  Barr to exonerate the president of obstruction of justice was partisan.

“He’s been on the good side of the president, reportedly, and on the bad side of the president. But frankly, it comes as no surprise. We all knew he was going to step down after this. He just wanted to see the Mueller investigation to its conclusion.”

“But it’s so weird — he’s the guy who picked Mueller, ” Cuomo replied. “He created this whole situation. And it seems like, to me, he’s talking to us, like it’s more about the media and really nothing about the president, even though he’s the guy who thought we need a special counsel.”

He wasn’t wrong about Rosenstein appointing special counsel Robert Mueller.

“I determined that it is in the public interest for me to exercise my authorities and appoint a special counsel to assume responsibility for this matter,” the deputy AG had announced in a statement to the public after his appointment of Mueller on May 17, 2017.

“My decision is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted. I have made no such determination. What I have determined is that based upon the unique circumstances, the public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command.”

This discrepancy between Rosenstein effectively stabbing the president in the back two years ago and now effusively praising him to the public just didn’t make sense to Lemon.

“I’ve been wanting to ask you this,” he said Monday to Cuomo. “There have been reports about him, right. Do you think he’s a double agent type?

And yes, he was dead serious.

Listen to the full discussion below:

“No. I don’t know what to make of him. … I really don’t get it,” Cuomo replied. “They brought him in there to be an ax man on Comey. Then he picks Mueller, which is the vindication of Comey, that you needed an outside source to process this because the president’s actions were so shady.”

“And then he winds up taking the decision from Mueller and winds up in this letter kind of talking about the news isn’t what matters. It’s our jobs.”

Is it possible that Rosenstein was simply doing his job? Is it possible that, despite accusations of bias from both Republicans and Democrats, he’d been a genuinely nonpartisan actor?

To inordinately biased “journalists” like Lemon and Cuomo, this just isn’t possible.

“I think you’re right, because we often use that — we report the news without fear or favor. And now he’s saying that about the law. Maybe he’s talking to the media. What’re you going to do?”

Maybe listen to him and stop being so biased yourselves!?

CNN is so biased that last year host and purported commentator Alisyn Camerota dismissed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Uranium One scandal by arguing that Trump would have also sold Uranium to the Russians had he been in her Clinton’s position. No facts or evidence were used to back this stunningly opinionated assertion.

Then following Barr and Rosenstein’s exoneration earlier this month of Trump on allegations of obstruction of justice, CNN reportedly held an emergency panel in which eight partisan Democrats all questioned the legitimacy of the duo’s decision:

This is CNN, a place where accusing the second most powerful law enforcement officer of being a “double agent” is as normal as talking publicly about the president’s penis.

Dovetailing back to the discussion on CNN, Lemon then praised Cuomo for allegedly “fact-checking” the president’s accurate “fine people on both sides” remark and listed the allegedly nonpartisan voices who’d be on his program, “CNN Tonight,” later that night to talk more about the  remarks.

“I’m so glad you did the fact-check on the ‘very fine people on both sides,'” he said. Jemelle Hill … we’re going to have her on to talk about what people are talking about. Also, George Slim from the ADL to give us some stats. And then Michael Higginbotham, the history professor who call tell us all about what this all means and put it into context for us.”

“Beautiful, all sides represented,” Cuomo replied without a trace of self-awareness.

*facepalm*
