For all of the characters that make up the Jeffrey Zucker-led circus at CNN, perhaps no one speaks in hyperbole more than longtime liberal journalist and CNN analyst Carl Bernstein. In separate appearances Wednesday night and Thursday morning, Bernstein reacted to the firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions by calling it a “coup” by “a rageaholic President...who has no understanding of the importance and primacy and rule of law in our system.”

First on AC360, Bernstein told Anderson Cooper that “what we saw today, is a kind of coup against the rule of law, a kind of action that you see in a tin pot dictatorship in which now we have the President of the United States who, clearly from the beginning, has been trying to shut down, bury the Mueller investigation.”
