Touching: Christiane Amanpour wishes Robert Mugabe a happy birthday; Update: Tweet deleted; Update: Amanpour reacts

Now comes the hard part: what do you get for the serial human rights abuser who has everything?


Amanpour’s birthday wish has disappeared from Twitter, replaced with something a little more objective.


CNN’s Amanpour: ‘I helpfully adjusted’ my birthday tweet to Mugabe because I was being ironic

  • Steve_J

    What could you get him? How about a date with Omar al-Bashir?

    what do you get for the serial human rights abuser who has everything?

    A jail cell?

    A noose and platform?

    A hellfire missile fired from a drone?

    A conveniently placed tactical nuclear weapon?

      Praise from a socialist.

    How many shows has Christiane bombed out on so far?

  • V the K

    Let’s see, Mugabe redistributed private property and wealth to his cronies, socialized his economy, and printed so much money to cover his massive Government spending that his currency became worthless. Sound familiar at all?

    • George Washington Mclintock

      I been calling Barry Hussein the Dog Eater “The American Mugabe” since ’10. But I decided recently that President Dorner is an even better moniker.

        I love that movie

      • James McLarey

        You’re absolutely brilliant! Do you even know that? I am stealing that! Best thing I have found on the internet in a month! Thanks, George!

  • Iacobus

    What’s funny is the position Mugabe takes against gays…and then a liberal like Amanpour just gushes with glee for this jackwagon.

    Scratch a liberal, find a socialist tyrant.

    A: A bullet to the head

  • TocksNedlog

    And she wishes Hugo Chavez a speedy recovery.

  • RightThinking1

    She probably has Papa Doc’s birthday marked on her calendar also.

    What a couple of disgusting quasi-human beings, these two…

  • Sean Hannahs

    54 retweets and 5 favorites. WTF!!!!

    • John Kerry’s Forehead

      You realize those are all mindless sheep following her. You know, Oblama voters. If she wishes this guy Happy Bday, I better retweet to look smart…even though I have no clue who this guy is. Low info jack wads.

  • Corey Dennison

    She has no problem wishing him a happy birthday…she doesn’t have to live under his cruel regime.


  • SineWaveII

    And CNN wonders why their ratings are in the toilet.

  • RevDrEBuzz

    Does she still celebrate Joe Stalin’s birthday too? I bet she does.

  • BorderLine Guy

    I’m guessing hundreds of people (me included) reminded her to mark her calendar for April 20th.

  • spot_the_dog

    That’s pretty much a “You thanked Hitler!” moment.

  • Libertyworld

    Answer: The ‘jurnalistik’ equivalent of a steamy love scene from CNN? With the Mother of All Groupies who really CANNOT get enough, go low enough or do enough for the very worst of the world’s worst… ‘things’? Oh Christiane! Why not just kiss him lovingly in front of various examples of his.. special power & persuasions? God in heaven, there is something dreadfully wrong with that girl AND that network.

  • kayakingfatso

    What a coward. These liberal goons can never stand behind their words.

  • Guest

    Amanpour yielding to her baser ideological instincts,
    then lacking the courage to reveal them…
    hypocrite be thy name.
