CNN’s Dana Bash Walks Back Praise of Trump — Did CNN Make Her? (Video)

Holy Cow, Jim Acosta must be crying, people must be having heart attacks. CNN’s Dana Bash regularly trashes President Trump in an unfair manner. But on Tuesday, she actually praised President Donald Trump–at least his performance during his press conferences Monday and Tuesday. Nevertheless, I am not sure that kind of praise is allowed on CNN. And perhaps that’s why she ended up walking it back.

“Look, this is just coming back to where this conversation started after the press conference. I hear what Sanjay is saying about Tony Fauci giving a little bit more wiggle room than others. But if you look at the big picture, this was remarkable from the President of the United States. This is a non-partisan, this is an important thing to note and to applaud from an American standpoint, from a human standpoint. He is being the kind of leader that people need, at least in tone, today and yesterday. In tone that people need and yearn for in times of crisis and uncertainty.”

CNN management must have immediately warned Ms.Bash to walk her comment back. Either that or she got a phone from the White House Correspondents Association for blowing the lid off their attempts to blame the President for the CoronaVirus crisis.  Because soon after her comments hit twitter, Paul Bedard of the Washington Times mentioned it and she tweeted out:

To be clear I said what he did at his presser today and yesterday is the kind of leadership in tone people need. It is important to say that, just as it was important to call him out on the way he largely and dangerously downplayed it until yesterday.

Perhaps thanks to her walk away from her original comment Jim Acosta stopped crying and the White House Correspondents Association withdrew their threats.
