“Not Even North Korea Would Say This”: CNN Anchor Mocked For Unrestrained Fawning Over Biden

On Tuesday CNN’s politics editor and VP David Chalian described the scene and atmosophere of the National Mall in preparation for Joe Biden’s inauguration as one of a stark contrast to the “disgraced president” who is leaving the words he used to describe Trump  at the “lowest point in his presidency.”

That’s when things got weird live on air. Chalian went on a flowery emotional tribute and display of loyalty one might expect in some third world dictatorship. Indeed he was hardly able to contain himself while images of thousands of lights on the National Mall were put up on the screen:

“The contrast on display tonight was so stark. I mean, those lights that are just shooting out from the Lincoln Memorial along the reflecting pool, it’s like almost… extensions of Joe Biden’s arms embracing America.”

Journalist Glenn Greenwald voiced perhaps what everyone is thinking: “Not even North Korean TV would say this,” he said on Twitter.

It’s not hard to imagine how ruthlessly US media would mock any other country’s pundits for saying this about their leaders, particularly the line about an imagined “embrace” by the Glorious Leader’s “arms” in the form of “lights…shooting out”.

A number of commentators underscored that this was only the beginning of more groveling to ‘Dear Leader’ to come…


This embarrassingly sycophantic “extension of Joe Biden’s arms” moment is rivaled only perhaps by Chris Matthews’ 2008 moment where he said on MSNBC that Obama gives him a “thrill going up my leg”.

“I have to tell you, you know, it’s part of reporting this case, this election, the feeling most people get when they hear Barack Obama’s speech,” Matthews said live on air. “My, I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don’t have that too often.”
