Brian Stelter is CNN’s senior media correspondent, which is sort of a meta-position in which he reports on what CNN and other news outlets are reporting. But you, friends, have Twitchy, where we write about people like Stelter writing about the media.

As Twitchy reported, Tom Arnold was a guest with Poppy Harlow on CNN. Harlow’s question about whether Trump lawyer Michael Cohen is cooperating with the authorities was met with 17 seconds of dead air — which some clever person set to the music from “Jeopardy.”

That certainly was a trainwreck to most people, but to the programmers at CNN, it looks like they’ve found their new Stormy Daniels. That wasn’t the first time they’ve hosted Arnold recently; they also brought him on as an “expert” after his ex-wife Roseanne Barr lost her show over a nasty tweet … so they knew what they were getting this time around.

Here’s an idea — let’s not give Arnold any more airtime. He has his own show on VICE, apparently; let him do his schtick there.

If you just can’t get enough of Tom Arnold after his appearances on CNN and MSNBC, here’s a great clip in which he accuses Donald Trump of being a Russian asset and not even knowing it:
