(National Sentinel)Â Idiocy: Fake news centralÂ CNN is becoming known as ‘conspiracy theory central’ as its hosts and newscasters become increasingly affected by Trump Derangement Syndrome.
One of the biggest loons is “political analyst” April Ryan, a correspondent forÂ American Urban Radio Networks who has made a name for herselfÂ sparring with POTUS Donald Trump and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
During a panel appearance on host Don Lemon’s program Saturday night,Â Ryan compared the U.S. under Trump toÂ Russia and China,Â claiming without offering a shred of credible evidence thatÂ the president was becoming a dictator.
TheÂ Washington Free Beacon reports:
CNN political analyst April Ryan said Russian President Vladimir Putin is “big pimping” President Donald Trump, adding the United States is “going down a line of a dictatorship” like Russia or China.
“The president sees that his numbers are waning,” she said in a clip flagged byÂ RealClearPolitics. “He cannot be this dictator that he’s trying to be at this moment. It reminds me of a song. Jay-Z. Prolific rapper. Prolific philosopher. I’m taking a quote from him. Putin has got Donald Trump big pimpingâ€”big pimping Donald Trump right now,” Ryan said.
“Donald Trump thinks he can do whatever he wants to the world and this nation, and it’s not happening.”
“Big Pimpin'” was a huge hit for Jay-Z when released in 2000, but in 2010,Â he renouncedÂ his song’s sexually aggressive lyrics as “really harsh” and wondered what kind of “animal” would write it.
Ryan went on to say Trump was getting Congress to do his bidding in undermining the Russia investigation after some GOP lawmakers called for the impeachment of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
“The rule of law is gone now,” she said. “Donald Trump, and we don’t like to say it, but we are going down a line of a dictatorship. Russia and China, that’s what we are.”
Sorry April, but we haven’t seen this “line of dictatorship” that you see.
And in fact, if what she said was true,Â would she even have been allowed to say it? Dictators tend to shut down free speech and gain control over all mediaÂ as one of their first orders of business.
The fact is under Trump America is trending towardÂ more freedom, not less. To claim with a straight face that we’re becoming Russia or China is just babbling lunacy.
