Dear Lord, we can’t take much more of CNN’s Brian Stelter. Just for a break, here’s CBS News’s Mark Knoller, one of the last few actual reporters out there:

But what about the context, Knoller? Stelter was watching President Trump boarding Marine One for the flight back to the White House and called it “what strongmen do in autocratic regimes” — a “Dear Leader” sort of approach. And then he started getting into the coverup nonsense.
.@brianstelter: It's not a real show of strength but it's a performative show of strength, this is what strong men do in autocratic regimes…Meanwhile, there are big questions about the coverup…We moved from this possibly being a coverup to actually being a coverup. pic.twitter.com/fbF4qEQPUE

CNN’s @brianstelter on Trump leaving the hospital: “This is what strong men do in autocratic regimes. Thankfully we’re in a democracy, but this is the kind of thing you see from strong men who want to appear to be leading — it's a 'Dear Leader' sort of approach." pic.twitter.com/3Awjro3jkg

This is what performers do for an audience with no intelligence or taste. Reality TV consumers.

I would like to think that all CNN viewers roll their eyes when he says things like this but I know they don’t

Obviously, some of us are not living in the same reality.
All I saw was a man walk onto a plane. No context necessary.

So @brianstelter you’re saying that he never actually had COVID? You’ve become less credible than Alex Jones. Congrats.

Donald Trump has utterly DESTROYED little Brian Stelter.
He is permanently disabled; a mental basket case.

Brian Stelter doesn’t want to be *that* guy, but he thinks Kayleigh McEnany’s COVID diagnosis is ‘outrageous,’ ‘more evidence of a coverup’ https://t.co/nucQIcRhlU
