Chris Cillizza is once again delivering hard-hitting news and commentary about the 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls.
Folks, THIS is CNN.

At least he’s not doing the Harry Potter thing.
With 21 official candidates all seeking the Iron Thro — er, Democratic nomination — it’s sometimes hard to keep track of who’s who. (Sidebar: 60% of the time my wife and I are watching “GOT” is filled with me saying, “Wait, who is that again?”)
Maybe this will help jog your memory! Below, all of the candidates matched up with the “Thrones” character they remind me most of. Important caveat: Many of the “GOT” characters are murderers! Some are horrible people! And then there’s Ramsay Bolton. That’s all to say that you shouldn’t take this literally. “Game of Thrones” is a TV show based on an amazing set of unfinished books.
It is fiction. This is real life. OK? OK!
One more caveat: CNN and HBO are both WarnerMedia companies, but HBO did not participate in compiling this list.
Here we go!
We find it fascinating Cillizza felt the need to remind his readers that ‘Game of Thrones’ is fiction …
Ben Rhodes didn’t find Cillizza’s piece quite so ‘fascinating’:
Reminder that Trump could never have been elected President without a news media that covers politics as entertainment https://t.co/MI4N5zktYO

Ben seems tense.
Has he forgotten who he worked for? Seriously.
You loved it when they fawned over BHO.

But this is DIFFERENT.
Reminder, Iran could not be as aggressive as it is without Ben Rhodes deceiving the public as to the Iran deal. https://t.co/1y226hPgqX

C'mon, Ben. Obama was called the Celebrity-In-Chief thanks to a boot-kissing media. The man could do no wrong in their eyes and is worshipped to this day. Perhaps reining it in back then would have been better than pointing fingers now

ORANGE MAN BAD.
So true. If the media had told the truth about Obama and not portrayed him as a rock star politician who was honest and real, he never would have been president.

Didn't hear you complain when Obama was elected

Sorry Ben, but we’re going to have to give this round to Chris.
