CNN’s media reporter Brian Stelter got his long-awaited wish granted last week the liberal media en mass started openly questioned President Trump’s mental acuity followed the release of Fire and Fury, the dubiously sourced anti-Trump book that was light on facts but loaded with gossip. Despite how his show was called “Reliable Sources,” Stelter spent his entire Sunday show glorifying the book and praising those calling the President’s mental stability into question.
“The tip-toeing is over! The whispers are turning into shouts! President Trump's fitness for office is now the top story in the country. Reporters and some lawmakers are openly talking about the President's mental stability, his health, his competency,” Stelter bombastically declared at the start of his show.
Stelter lauded how Trump’s mental health went from a fringe smear that he and other hyper-partisans peddled to a “global story.” He highlighted how a UK paper owned by Rupert Murdock and a German paper were running headlines such as: “Is Donald Trump Still Sane?” “But many Americans are worried and journalists need to cover that,” he opined.
“Let's be honest here, it's not just the book that is forcing this fitness issue to the forefront,” Stelter chided. “When a president of the United States threatens North Korea by invoking the size of his nuclear button, it is fair to ask about his fitness.” But where was the questioning of mental fitness when President Obama warned North Korea that the U.S. could utterly destroy the regime? It would send the wrong impression if the U.S. didn’t respond to Kim Jung Un’s flamboyant rhetoric.
