There’s stupid, and then there’s CNN’s Sally Kohn, who actually gets paid real money to make statements like this.
On Sunday, Newsbusters reported that Kohn predicted a President Trump would ditch habeas corpus and open internment camps a la Adolf Hitler.
She started by complaining about the media attention Trump is getting, and went from there.
“So a fine line between covering a candidate and amplifying a candidate, and, I’m sorry, but, yes, Donald Trump may be the Republican frontrunner. I still think we’re giving him way too much attention in proportion to the other candidates who also had victories to celebrate tonight,” she said.
“And I’m worried. When he institutes internment camps and suspends habeas, we’ll all look back and feel pretty bad,” she added.

Brad Wilmouth added:
Host Chris Cuomo turned to conservative CNN political commentator and NewsBusters contributor Jeffrey Lord for reaction. Taken aback by her over the top analysis, Lord declared that he was “speechless.”
In an appearance on CNN on Wednesday, Kohn had previously delved into hyperbole as she predicted that Democrats would vote against Trump in November for the purpose of “stopping us from being Nazi Germany.”
Of course, this kind of silly rhetoric is nothing new for Kohn, as we’ve previously reported. She’s entitled to her opinion, of course, but she’s not entitled to her own facts.
It just amazes me that people actually get paid to say stuff like this…
