CNN propagandist Philip Mudd advocates for ‘shadow government’ to oppose Trump — Video

While appearing on Monday’s edition of CNN Newsroom, CNN analyst and former CIA/FBI official Philip Mudd called for a self-appointed “shadow government” to step forward and counter the legal and democratically-elected one, Newsbusters reported.

According to Nicholas Fondacaro:

Fresh off of declaring the Trump-Putin press conference “one of the most disgraceful performances” by an American president, AC360 host Anderson Cooper completed the CNN’s feedback loop by touting Arizona Republican Senator John McCain saying the same thing. He then turned to Mudd and asked if he agreed.

Of course, Mudd did but his next concern was in regards to who was going to step up to oppose the President. “You have seen senators come out. In the past, we have seen the senator who is in the midst of a painful illness, Senator McCain. Senators like Jeff Flake who are leaving the Senate. Now you see Marco Rubio still, obviously, in the fight speaking out,” he boasted.

He spoke glowingly about how there were many people at different levels of government who were saying and doing things contrary to the President. “Curious point in American government. When do we see almost a shadow government come out and say, ‘We cannot side with the government, whether its cabinet or the Senate.’ I think that’s the big question,” he opined.

Mudd also claimed that Trump has more in common with foreign despots than American values.

“What’s the message to you in that pattern? ‘I trust people who think like I do. I don’t like CNN and I don’t like Democrats. These people can operate like I want to operate. The EU, the Canadians, the Mexicans can’t. Let me side with people who don’t represent American principles. But represent Trumpian principles,’” he said.

“It’s Trumpianism versus Americanism,” he added.

Translation: If you support Donald Trump, you’re not an American.

“For all his whining about Trump being un-American, what about pushing for a ‘shadow government’ is American?” Fondacaro asked.

Keep in mind this is the same Philip Mudd who once said the government is going to kill President Trump.

Exit question: Does Mudd also want a “shadow Constitution?”
