CNN Laments Being Unable to Hear a Good Speech ‘Like This’ from Trump

Almost minutes after President Barack Obama concluded his farewell address Tuesday night, CNN jumped into whining about not being able to hear such deep speech from President-elect Donald Trump. “Also as we think about the next president about to take office, I mean, their speaking styles could not possibly be any more different,” noted moderator, Anderson Cooper, as unseen members of his panel laughed.

We’re not going to be hearing a speech LIKE THIS from a sitting president for the next four or eight years,” he continued to bemoan, as CNN’s chief political correspondent Dana Bash chimed in to glorify Obama’s speech delivering acumen:

And let's be honest, one of the reasons—one of the main reasons—the many reasons Barack Obama did burst on the scene is because of the way he gives a speech. I mean, he's an orator, that's who he is. And that’s why he can hit it out of the park like this. And you're absolutely right, Anderson. I mean, it's going to be a while. Who knows how long before we can hear a speech like this.

According to panelist John Avlon of The Daily Beast, there was a lot to be impressed about in Obama’s speech. “It was a Progressive profession of faith, but it was rooted in deeply conservative values. It was rooted in deeply American values,” Avlon opined, “And while he issued a warning about the future, it was rooted in a reaffirmation of basic citizenship. And that’s why ultimately it's uniting, not a partisan take. It transcends that.

The embarrassing level of swooning for the president from the two CNN personalities exposed who they preferred to listen too.
