While appearing on Sunday’s edition of CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” so-called “legendary investigative journalist” Carl Bernstein told host Brian Stelter that Donald Trump is — wait for it — a “war criminal” because of the deaths that took place during the pandemic.
We’re not kidding.
Keep in mind that the Oxford English Dictionary defines a “war criminal” as “a person who has carried out an act during the conduct of a war that violates accepted international rules of war.”
Is Biden's Vaccine Mandate Unconstitutional?
“I think we need to calmly step back and maybe look at Trump in a different context. He is our own American war criminal of a kind we’ve never experienced before. What he has done, and what he continues to do,” Bernstein said.
Wait a minute — Trump’s not even in office but he’s a “war criminal?”
And let’s face it — were it NOT for Trump, we wouldn’t have multiple vaccines for the coronavirus. You know, the ones liberals like Kamala Harris said they wouldn’t take because they were developed during his administration?
And if Trump hadn’t taken the actions he did early on, there probably would’ve been a lot more people dead from the virus. Guess Bernstein conveniently forgot about that…
Here’s video of Bernstein’s outlandish and patently false accusation:

Newsbusters’ Tim Graham posted a transcript:
BERNSTEIN: I think we need to slow down a bit and deconstruct some of the things that you’ve just laid out there. The first thing is I’m not a psychiatrist, and God knows all of us may have a degree of narcissism. But when you’re talking about Trump, we’re obviously talking about a kind of delusional madness, such as General Milley was talking about, that is on a scale and a scope that we have never experienced in an American president in our history. I think we need to calmly step back [!!] and maybe look at Trump in a different context. He is our own American war criminal of a kind we’ve never experienced before. What he has done, and what he continues to do —
STELTER: You just said war criminal. What do you mean, war criminal?
BERNSTEIN: I did. In international law, there have been, quote, crimes against humanity. I think what we’re talking about, Trump’s crimes as an American war criminal in his own country that he has perpetrated upon our people, including the tens of thousands of people who died because of his homicidal negligence in the pandemic, putting his own electoral interest above the health of our people when they were slaughtered in this pandemic.
Looking at his actions in terms of fomenting a coup to hold onto office in which the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff has now compared Trump — not the press, not reporters comparing Trump to Hitler, but rather the head of the American military comparing him and his movement to brown shirts, to the Reichstag fire. This is a huge wake-up call to this country when General Milley, the head of the American military, has said this. It fits as a piece with something so extraordinary in our history, it’s not political. Trump is not just political, he transcends the political, and we need to start looking at his crimes in that context.
Why would Bernstein — who is allegedly a “legendary journalist” — make such an outlandish statement? There’s only one reason I can think of. It seems to me he wants Trump murdered.
As Graham accurately observes, this kind of incendiary rhetoric has become repetitive on certain “news” outlets:
We could go on, but this is just the same unhinged Trump analysis, week after week, incredibly repetitive. And it remains bizarre that somehow Trump has killed tens of thousands, and CNN never suggests Andrew Cuomo “slaughtered” a single New Yorker by moving COVID-infected people into nursing homes. The double standard in this overwrought mess is ridiculous.
It’s beyond ridiculous. It’s nothing more than an incitement to violence. Is THAT what Bernstein and Stelter want? It sure sounds like it to me.
