Video of the Day: CNN fantasizes how coronavirus pandemic can help Dems take over in November

On Tuesday, CNN, the cable propaganda outlet once described as the least-trusted name in network news, held a panel discussion in which the liberals assembled fantasized about how the coronavirus pandemic could potentially help Democrats take power in November’s elections.

A partial transcript follows:

ANDERSON COOPER: We’ve also never seen a situation like this, certainly in modern times, in terms of a potential pandemic influencing the next couple of months in a way that’s kind of hard to even imagine. I mean, obviously there is the difference on health care between Sanders and Biden, but if — You know, if hospitals are overwhelmed, if, you know, the military is called in, if people are being triaged in school gymnasiums on respirators or whatever, however bad it may get, and let’s hope it doesn’t —

ANDREW YANG: Nothing makes you appreciate a functional government like a global pandemic.

DAVID AXELROD: Yes, I’ve always said that.

YANG: Yes, no.

AXELROD: No, you’re right.


COOPER: I mean, none of us, there are very few people who have seen what happens when a society, you know, has the potential to really burst at the seams.

YANG: Joe Biden’s argument has been about sort of a return to moral normalcy, but it’s also going to begin to look like a return to competence—

AXELROD: Yes, yes, yes.

YANG: — because Trump and the Republicans have been running the government in sort of an anti-government frame, which is not what you want when you’re dealing with a health crisis. And we all know when Joe becomes our president, he’s going to bring back many of the Obama alums who are really, really competent and technocratic. And there’s going to be a real hunger for that in the days to come among many, many Americans if the coronavirus crisis continues to grow.

This is CNN.  Let that set in.
