Proving that Republicans who are critical of former President Trump lose their usefulness on other topics, CNN’s New Day spent part of their airtime Monday huffing about New Hampshire Republican Governor Chris Sununu being outraged at President Biden for describing his entire party as “semi-fascist.” The CNN personalities in the segment downplayed Biden’s dangerous rhetoric and suggested Sununu was only motivated by his re-election bid.

“Republican Governor Chris Sununu is calling on President Biden to apologize for using a term last week, this was in a closed-door setting with donors where he said … supporters of Donald Trump he said engaged in something akin to what he called a sort of semi-fascism,” announced co-host John Berman.

What followed was a soundbite of Sununu speaking with CNN State of the Union co-host Dana Bash from the previous day, when he spoke out against Biden’s smears.
