Since Brian Stelter is the media reporter at CNN, maybe he can explain to us who does the bookings for CNN and why they choose the people they do. You might remember that Stelter had as a guest on his “Reliable Sources” show Robert DeNiro, who discussed the Ukraine scandal with Stelter (the one that got President Trump impeached, not the Joe and Hunter Biden one).
Both the Biden campaign and CNN go in big with Hollywood celebrities, and for her segment on CNN to discuss the state of the nation, Christiane Amanpour had on Frank Langella, who played Richard Nixon in “Frost/Nixon.” Not surprisingly, Langella didn’t speak of Biden’s “dark winter” but he did warn of dangerous waters.
Frank Langella famously played Richard Nixon in “Frost/Nixon,” and he warns “we are in a great deal of trouble in this country. The waters are very dangerous at the moment.” pic.twitter.com/wdSYPUKJ1I

He “famously” played Richard Nixon.
And Skeletor! pic.twitter.com/iQnxGRDyxh

He was also Skeletor in Masters of The Universe. What. A. Performance!

He did indeed play Skeletor in “Masters of the Universe,” so he knows something about politics.
He also famously played Skeletor so perhaps she can get his thoughts on He-Man too.

Imagine thinking this is a serious argument

Christiane once famously played a journalist, too. This is a fascinating bit of improv they've managed to put together here.

Oh well if an actor playing a president said it, then I guess it has to be true.

Well, this changes everything.

This is the biggest reach to make someone sound credible I have ever seen

He's an actor. His primary skill is playing make believe. Who he's pretended to be in his career doesn't make his opinion any more interesting or well informed.

He played a role in a movie, which gives him no insight whatsoever into our current situation. But since we are discussing Watergate-level abuse of power, how about you investigate Obama weaponizing the IRS, FBI and Intel to spy on political opponents?
— JMR Philomathia (@JMR1834) October 26, 2020
Way bigger than Watergate.
He "played". You know that's not real, right? He really wasn't Nixon.

He also played a Russian spy in "The Americans" so I think he is a Putin puppet.

Yes. But did he stay in a Holiday Inn Express?

It’s laughable that people who mouth words that others write for them to say and who engage in make-believe are somehow “experts” whose opinions are worth listening to.
I don’t care what actors think. They’re not smart. They’re narcissists whose judgment stinks.

Skeletor endorses Joe Biden. Poetic.

This is so lame that I’m embarrassed for you. I mean seriously seriously lame.

You are pathetic.

Funny how he “famously” played Richard Nixon but everyone remembers him as Skeletor.
Brian Stelter acts like the Ukrainian scandal is a serious matter and then invites an actor on for vulgar commentary https://t.co/4OT5l5CSyd
