While night three of the Democratic National Convention featured vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) speaking not once but twice, CNN’s Zuckerville collective had a hard time focusing on anything other than former President Barack Obama’s address.

And Immediately following CNN’s airing of Wednesday night’s convention in its entirety (no breaks what so ever), host Wolf Blitzer (who last night bragged about spending “quality time” with Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter last year) declared Obama’s address “the most powerful address he ever gave.” Bloviating:

We also saw a truly unprecedented moment. The former president of the United States, Barack Obama delivering a scathing, a scathing attack against the current president of the United States, President Trump. This was a moment that we anticipated that this would unfold, but not to the degree that it has unfolded.

I've been watching President Obama, for example, since 2004 deliver speeches. This may have been the most powerful address he ever gave, a presidential address to the nation, not only strongly supporting the Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, right now, but going after the sitting President of the United States.

Shoddy CNN host Jake Tapper pumped the breaks a bit to make sure they took a few seconds to commend Harris, but he too then swooned for his former President.
