We joke a lot about looking for our shocked faces, but this time, we might actually need them.
On CNN today, Dana Bash had … nice things to say about Donald Trump’s current handling of the COVID19 crisis:

Praise for Trump on CNN? Wow.
Dana Bash: President Trump “is being the kind of leader that people need.. in times of crisis and uncertainty.”

Dana Bash just called Trump's tone "remarkable" and the kind of leadership we need during a crisis and said his recent pivot was "pretty incredible." pic.twitter.com/kXx2Uv0L4m

Stranger things have happened, we suppose.
Hope Bash knows what she’s in for now …
what is she on?

CNN's Dana Bash is talking about how Trump is becoming the leader Americans lead because he isn't completely denying the existence of a pandemic, because he has "a tone of calm, and understand how dire this is." Dana Bash is evidently insane. The lowest possible bar.

Dana Bash is the epitome of what's wrong with the main stream media.

What a time to be alive.
Bash is still getting, well, bashed for praising Trump’s leadership:
Here is the clip of @DanaBashCNN praising Trump because he’s now screaming at reporters and going on absolute tantrums like he normally does.
I feel like I’m living on another planet.

For what it’s worth, here’s how she responds to her critics:
As I said in the clip you posted below, this is a moment to be non-partisan, American and human – & the TONE the president set at today & yesterday's PRESSERS were remarkably different and welcomed. That's a fact. Let's all take a breath and remember we are all in this together. https://t.co/bx9uLuvkOI
