Responding Thursday evening to President Donald Trump’s soft-spoken, toned-down concession speech, Bash rightly noted that it had “a very different tone” from the boisterous, combative speech he’d delivered at the “Stop the Steal” rally Wednesday.
“Well, it is obviously a very different tone,” were the eight simple, pithy words she uttered Thursday when asked for her reaction to the speech.
She continued by accusing Trump of inciting the Wednesday riots, claiming he’s a liar, and debunking his claim that he’d been the one to call in the National Guard.
“Not only did he not immediately deploy the National Guard, you had his vice president … being called by the Republican and Democratic leadership in Congress, saying where is the National Guard, we cannot get this under control. It was the vice president who had to make an additional call to the Pentagon to say we need help,” she said.
Listen to her full response below:
Instead of listening to her full statement — which clearly contained plenty of criticism of Trump — leftist hate-mongers became fixated on her opening remarks.
And thus, led by high-profile, blue-check-mark elites, left-wing zealots began bombarding Bash with an avalanche of left-wing hate.
Look (*Language warning):
Dana Bash went back to talking about Trump’s new tone. I wish I was joking. I wish I was joking.

“Love trumps hate,” no?
The irony is that these left-wing zealots’ hate makes even the president’s most divisive statements seem pale in comparison.
Bash eventually responded to the hate by specifically calling out high-profile Democrat strategist Adam Parkhomenko for inciting the attack on her.
FYI, Parkhomenko is himself a radical who earlier this year disparaged Sen. Marsha Blackburn as “inbred racist trash.”

Look at what Bash tweeted below:
Hey @AdamParkhomenko – I almost never respond such things – but your attack on me tonight was totally out of bounds and out of context. What the president said was different. I didn’t defend it. I explained it. With reporting. I also called out his lies in the video 1/2

These times are hard enough. Engaging in cancel culture B.S. has got to stop – especially when it comes to journalists putting facts first. Enough.
— Dana Bash (@DanaBashCNN) January 8, 2021
This time, she was right — 100 percent right.
It was an objective fact to note that the president’s tone Thursday was wildly different from the tone he’d applied during the rally Wednesday.
Yet her correct rebuttal triggered even more hate.
Cancel culture hits everyone when you are a stupid piece of shit.
You want to play down everything he has done and then want to give him a fucking cookie when he does the bare minimum.
— Nana to be Leanna (@GenxLeanna) January 8, 2021
Then you should stop “explaining” what is different about trump. Nothing is. He’s a fucking psychopath, and criticizing your inability to see that isn’t cancel culture… it’s the fucking truth. We’re FUCKING TIRED OF THIS “TONE” BULLSHIT. DO BETTER, OR SHUT THE FUCK UP, DANA.

OH FUCK OFF with this Cancel Culture Shit! @CNN ENOUGH! This is a DogWhistle at this point! Fucking Cancel Culture! Because people are done with your BS – go talk to @GovWhitmer about the CHANGE in Tone! And how THIS TRUMP is different!
— Becky B (@nidula_b) January 8, 2021
Oh my god this shit-for-brains is still talking about cancel culture
— Inside Agitator (@spacemanSpliff_) January 8, 2021
@DanaBashCNN TRASH. Quit your job and find a new country to ‘both sides’ and engage in wanton publicism for confederate traitors and ambitious fascists. “Cancel culture bs” 🙄 the nerve to talk about “context”. Context is antithetical to the charade that is Jeff Zuckers @CNN

Look closely at these tweets, because this isn’t just the face of CNN’s viewer base — it’s the face of the political party that now controls the White House, the House, AND the Senate thanks to the GOP’s devastating loss in this week’s Georgia run-off elections …
