We love to dunk on CNN’s Chris Cillizza, and he makes it so easy, but we were almost rooting for him Monday after he posted his latest bit of serious political analysis: matching the 2020 Democratic candidates with “Game of Thrones” characters.

As Twitchy reported, Obama bro Ben Rhodes wasn’t amused by Cillizza’s piece, complaining that it was the media covering politics as entertainment that led to President Trump’s election in 2016.

Plenty of people lined up to remind Rhodes that his boss’s two terms wouldn’t have been possible without the media treating the whole Barack Obama administration as entertainment, and they’re still lining up to set him straight.


… not that it makes Cillizza’s piece any less insipid.
