CNN’s Christiane Amanpour also took to Twitter to squee.

Heh. Judge for yourself:

Oh dear.

Her fashion choice aside, it was her words that sparked deserved mockery:

Of course, that isn’t shocking. Amanpour totally hearts Castro:


These Twitter users are not fans of Amanpour’s Mandela memorial coverage:


Why did CNN stick viewers with Amanpour?

CNN fail.

Did Obama make a joke at #MandelaMemorial or was it lack of self-awareness?

  • Not The Penguin

    I’m betting Amanpour was one of those “shrieking teenage girls” waving to ‘the one’.

    • billyelsie

      She’s not mature enough!

    • Hot_wings

      It’s been a long time since she has shrieked like a teenage girl.
      Actually now she has a voice that sounds like Barry White with a British accent !

  • Republicanvet

    …speaking of the media throwing panties…

    The female Mick Jagger threw hers right after Chris Mathews.

    Well, it IS almost summer, down in Jo’Burg…

  • notenoughtime

    In a moment of weakness tuned in but did not take long to reach for the remote!

  • Fire and Adjust!

    ‘Mandela is the heir to Lincoln,’ she (Amanpour) just said.

    I’m pretty sure Lincoln wasn’t the leader of an African terrorist organization (ANC), wasn’t an avowed Marxist and self proclaimed socialist, wouldn’t have wanted the soviets to trample the US, wouldn’t have written ‘How to be a Good Communist’ where in he says “Under a Communist Party Government South Africa will become a land of milk and honey…….Communists everywhere fight to destroy capitalist society and to replace it with Socialism”, didn’t advocate cutting off the noses of dissenters, wasn’t on the US’s terrorist watch list, and his wife didn’t advocate the use of burning tire necklaces as a means of execution for his own people who they SUSPECTED of conspiring with their opponents.

  • capisce

    “If you like your dictatorship, you can keep your dictatorship”
    Liberal hearts rejoice that POTUS is shaking hands with the head of a government that jails dissenters, many of whom are black – following a eulogy for the world’s most famous jailed, black political dissenter???

    I cannot comprehend going anywhere NEAR Joburg, let alone for a Mandela memorial. Good grief–remember, in ‘District 9’ they didn’t have to CGI the location.

  • Chrisput

    The Anti-Semite also couldn’t resist taking a shot at Israel. What a filthy Muslime Pig.

    • JoeMyGodNYC

      Christiane Amanpour was raised a Christian and attended Holy Cross, an all-girls Catholic school in London.

      • forgetyoutooo

        And she would be beheaded in the middle east for that today.

        • JoeMyGodNYC

          Doubtful. Her mother is a British-born Christian so there was no abandonment of Islam. Even today there are an estimated 250,000 Christians in Iran and about 600 Christian churches.

          • spaceycakes

            what is your point? That a person raised ‘christian’ can’t be an anti-Semite?

          • JoeMyGodNYC

            My point is that the original poster is an idiot bigot who couldn’t take three seconds to Google the religion of Christiane Amanpour.

          • spaceycakes

            oh I see…well, then it’s a good thing the original poster didn’t call amanpour an atheist! LOL

          • DavidKramer

            I didn’t know Marxism was a religion………..thanks Joe for the info.

          • JaneSmith100

            Joe, shouldn’t you go back to posting naked selfies of yourself on your awful “blog”? You’re just here trolling and can’t wait to call people “bigots’ GTFOOH.

          • Kakarot

            Wrong place.

          • Chrisput

            Muslime or Muslime supporting Anti-Semite. Who cares?

          • Kakarot

            Joe, I thought you were the original poster?

            Guess I need to double check this thread.

            Christiane Amanpour was raised a Christian and attended Holy Cross, an all-girls Catholic school in London.
            Yep, your post, Joe

          • JoeMyGodNYC

            Nope. You didn’t scroll up far enough.

          • unclebarb

            Who cares?

          • robert anthony

            Google would tell me Elizabeth Warren is a Cherokee…doesn’t make it so.

          • JaneSmith100

            F.O.S. as usual Joe. And you being gay would be beheaded anywhere in the Middle East you f’n Jew Hater.

          • ObamaFail

            That’s why libs are full of it with their support of gay people. Libs support Islam and claim it’s the religion of peace, yet Muslims would kill any gay person if given the chance.

          • JaneSmith100

            Exactly, & Joe is a prime example of it. He’s pro-Palestinian, hates Jews, pro-Muslim, a die-hard Obama/D, but can’t connect the dots to how every Middle East country outside of Israel would behead him in a quick NY second.

          • Kakarot

            Not counting the ones on fire right now.

    • JaneSmith100

      You got it. She’s a piece of work. Ignore the troll Joe, he’s from a gay porn politics (really) blog that he constantly promotes everywhere on the net.

      • JoeMyGodNYC

        1-Timothy 2:11. :)

        • JaneSmith100

          Don’t you need to post to your gay brethren Joe?

    • Jay Stevens

      Not Muslim, but definitely a Palestinian sympathizer. As far as I know, she has never commented on fauxtography or documented false stories coming out of the “Occupied Territories”.

  • JoeMyGodNYC


    • Red Fred

      That’s called “protocol.”

      • BeautifulAmerica

        I call it hypocrisy

    • JaneSmith100


    • ObamaFail

      Wow, Obama disrespects Mandela at the memorial service by taking selfies of himself like a teenage girl and flirting with another woman causing Moochelle to make him switch seats, and you’re more offended by Cruz tweeting condolences? You libs are trash.

      • JoeMyGodNYC

        Actually, I was impressed that Cruz was, for once, acting like a sane person. The funny part is that Cruz is now being attacked by the Tea People for doing do.

        • JaneSmith100

          Only in your mind Joe, or you’re searching the interwebs for proof, right? Then you’ll snark on your blog. But people here at Twitchy don’t GAF. Welcome to the real world outside of your small one hun.

  • Jay Stevens

    Well, to be fair, the safari jacket is de rigueur for every well dressed journalist, even at a state funeral.

    • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      She couldn’t find one in black?

      • Jay Stevens

        The authentic safari jacket only comes in khaki.

        Until it went upscale, it was a really functional piece of clothing: durable, the 100% cotton made it really comfortable, and all the pockets meant you could carry lots of stuff.

        • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          I have a black one. Not really an upscale kind of gal.

  • Maxx

    Wow, does this woman ever get star struck. Let’s hope she doesn’t toss her panties at Bubba. Good lord.

  • JDSoCal

    Gawd, I’ve always loathed that dreadful lefty Amanpour.

  • BeautifulAmerica

    Typical product of BROWN COMMUNIST UNIVERSITY, Rhode Island, home of many NWO grads.

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    Christiane Amanpour.

    I, for one, think it was nice that Iran sent an envoy to the funeral.

  • Hired Mind

    Amanpour: “Why couldn’t Mandela have died years ago!”

  • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Im outta words. Oh wait, I have just one left….disgusting. Wait I have one more….repulsive.
    Thats it.

  • Lisa Dean

    I’ve never liked Christiane Amanpour. When I was part of the evacuation out of Panama, she stood at the gate outside of the MAC terminal on Howard AFB cat calling at us to be interviewed. “Were things really as bad as they were reported in the US”, “If you answer a few questions you can be on CNN”, “If you could say anything to Noriega and his men what would you say”, “Are you happy to be leaving Panama”, “Were you told not to talk to the press”, “Doesn’t anyone want to have their voices heard”?

  • unclebarb

    I laughed with embarrassment when I heard her commentary. Gawd, she is a repulsive idiot.

  • lillymckim

    Giddy is good description you would have thought she waited up all night to get a peek at her favorite boy band …the slobbering was absolutely disgusting.

  • ToyZebra

    Ecstatic? The Obama-Castro handshake gave her an orgasm.

  • LegalizeShemp

    Those Commies like Amanpour always don their Castro gear to get down with their comrades in pushing international Marxism.

  • bill_a_bob

    With the prez doing selfies, Ammanpour swooning and congress selling us down the river one more time . . . Colin Powell could have announced he was MCing a gay pride parade and joining NAMBLA. Boy did he dodge a bullet this news cycle.

  • Ed McDowell

    Never in the course of human events have so many Communists, tyrants, socialists. killers of own people been together for one single event along with hundreds of drooling, loving. drooling, adoring, unquestioning media useful idiots an’ like that.
    Oh wait = the UN…I forgot…

  • robert anthony

    Amanpour’s wardrobe is inspired every morning by the painting, hanging in her penthouse suite, by an Iranian artist of the Twin towers burning.

    • JoeMyGodNYC

      Eye roll. Another famous lie from the Tea People. That painting was made in 90s, well before the attack on NYC.
