<p>On the 7 November 2014 edition of<em> CNN Newsroom</em>, Brooke Baldwin played up the apparent similarity between Senator-elect Joni Ernst&#39;s laugh and that of Cruella De Vil, the antagonist from Disney&#39;s 101 Dalmations. Baldwin aired a short segment on Ernst and two newly-elected Republican women in Congress. She ended the part about the Iowa politician with her comparison: &quot;<strong>Don&#39;t forget about that laugh. Some people call it contagious; other people have likened it to this</strong>.&quot; The anchor then twice played clips of Ernst laughing at her victory rally, followed by De Vil&#39;s evil cackle.</p>
