Carl Bernstein: Trump’s CNN Wrestling Tweet raises issues of “stability of the President of the United States”
Tweet is “anti-freedom of the press, it’s anti-freedom of speech”
Earlier today, President Trump tweeted out what has been reported to be a WrestleMania video from 2007 in which he took down a wrestler outside the ring. In the place of the wrestler’s head, the CNN logo has been superimposed. See video from Trump tweet below.
Carl Bernstein had a dark and apocalyptic reaction on CNN’s Reliable Sources today. Notably, Bernstein said that the video goes to questions raised by “military leaders” about “the stability of the President of the United States.”
In any case, just what was Bernstein suggesting, by asserting that “military leaders” are questioning President Trump’s “stability?”

BRIAN STELTER: On Twitter [Presiden Trump is] wrestling with . . . us. Look at this video from his Twitter account this morning. This is a WWE WrestleMania video from years ago when Trump used to show up at WWE events. You can see that the CNN logo has been superimposed onto the other fighter’s face.
. . .
I’d love to hear your reaction first, Carl, to this anti-CNN video from the president this morning.
CARL BERNSTEIN: First, it’s not just anti-CNN. It’s anti-freedom of the press. It’s anti-freedom of speech. It is a definitive statement by the President of the United States. I think also, goes to the question that many military leaders in this questions [sic], questions raised by military leaders in this country now. By the intelligence community. By people in Congress, about the stability of the President of the United States. This is an index of his state of mind. Visually. It’s very disturbing. There’s nothing like light-hearted about it whatsoever. It is an incitement. It is definitive, as I say, in the way this president views a free press and its exercise under the First Amendment to the Constitution.

to the full extent allowed by law.
Suck it up Carl. You sob’s lost.
What I saw was F’ing funny, one of the funniest things I’ve seen all year! It’s just as funny to see how the left throws civility out the window, attacks him in the vilest terms constantly, and then is SHOCKED, SHOCKED when he throws some of their crap back at them.
(and it’s just like them to think what to everyone else is obviously a JOKE is “omygod, it’s a threat! it’s a threat!!!”)
Methinks Carl’s got a really bad habit of delusions, and lying too?
Such fake outrage and moral indignation.
Wonder what these same people would say if that video showed someone body slamming Trump?
Yes, he took down CNN, and many can see this for what it is. It certainly gets the message across, and it’s sad, yet predictable, to see the Pavlovian response.
Or stabbing President Trump forty times with knives?
No need to guess.
…or cutting his head off. Where was Bernstein then?
Yes, Carl obviously missed the Public Theater’s reinterpretation of Julius Caesar for Shakespeare in the Park.
“There’s nothing like light-hearted about it whatsoever.”
Apparently Berstein didn’t see the same video I saw.
See, the left can’t abide being mocked.
Therefore we should mock them mercilessly.
You are dead-on right about the Mocking! The press has an incredibly inflated sense of their own status, they strive to believe that they are So So Serious and that they can Never Be Challenged! And they they hide behind that facade and do an endless barrage of vicious attacks.
So then Trump does what exactly – he openly mocks them in a juvenile and low brow way, and rather than blowing it off like they should, they go absolutely ballistic and start shrieking “It’s a threat! It’s a Threat! Impeach him!!!!”
You idiots, it was a joke, and you are reacting exactly the way he wanted you to react, and in a way that proves beyond any doubt that you needed to be mocked.
As to why Trump? Who else can get under your skin the way he can? He’s got your number, boys.
RE: “And they (the MSM) hide behind that facade and do an endless barrage of vicious attacks.”
They keep losing going this route…what’s their end goal stamp their feet all the way to the 25th amendment?
MSM, Main-stream Media (Yeah? Mainstream where? on upper Uranus?)
never learned a very important life lesson.
“They that print and sling mud, lose all ground!”
Obama had the journolists, teachers, actors, minority “leaders”, civil rights “leaders”, environmentalists, abortionists, and foreign leaders running interference for him. Trump is doing without the benefit of these diverse special and peculiar interests.
I did not care for the Woodward & Bernstein show in the 70s and it is not playing well in rerun.
Here’s a few crocodile tears for ya, Carl.
“Stability” is one of those great words which seems to mean something until you devote a few nanoseconds of thought to it; then it’s apparent that it’s amorphous and meaningless. Much like “hacking”, as in the Russians “hacking” the election. Since it’s meaningless, it can’t be disproved. Perfect words for incoherent accusations made by confused people who see their intellectual constructs collapsing all around them and can’t figure out which way to turn.
Boo Hoo…… Cry me a river of liberal tears and outrage.
The idiot left has cried wolf way too many times!
Keep tweeting Mr.President! The left is so off balance they don’t have a clue what they are doing.
Happy 4th America!!
Those are my sentiments exactly!
President Trump: “HOW TWEET IT IS!”
They’re only bad if they have an R after their names, right Carl..??
Carl Bernstein: Bush Has Done “Far Greater Damage” Than Nixon
After a long explanation of how the American system “worked,” eventually, with Watergate, Bernstein said:
In the case of George W. Bush, the American system has obviously failed – tragically – about which we can talk more in a minute. But imagine the difference in our worldview today, had the institutions – particularly of government – done their job to insure that a mendacious and dangerous president (as has since been proven many times over, beyond mere assertion) be restrained in a war that has killed thousands of American soldiers, brought turmoil to the lives of millions, and constrained the goodwill towards the United States in much of the world.
Later, asked if the Nixon administration was unique in hiring disreputable characters, he replied: “Until the Bush-43 administration, I had believed that the Nixon presidency was sui generis in modern American history in terms of your question…
Bernstein is a washed up hack, who lucked into a huge scoop. He has cashed in, and has made millions on it.
Now,trying for relevance, makes up semi believable tripe that the leftists lap up as profound.
Is there such a thing as an Old Reporter’s Home?
Trump is a fighter. Plain fact. In this “arena” the weapon of choice is public mockery. Ridicule is extremely effective. Hey, that’s straight from “Rules for Radicals”. Another Alinskyism…..make them live up to their own rules. There’s a big difference between beheading and a beat down. How about that stabbing and murder scene? Trump should have used the chair, imo.
Sniveling low testosterone presstitutes are going to whine and moan. Trump fights back, and we love it. Yeah, some media types may end up badly….but they’re trying to kill Trump…. literally. So, this thing is going to go the same way the Spanish Civil War unfolded. There’s no peace to be had with the marxist leftist Democrats. And their ilk in the enemedia.
A quick review of the CNN website and did not find a link between Kathy Griffin and Bernstein, so he didn’t make any comment of the ISIS style beheading of Trump.
ah. The malignant toad rises from the swamp.
Trump video of him in a cartoon sport beating up a pretend CNN? Most dangerous thing ever.
Democrat tries to assassinate (R)s at a baseball field, Trump supporters beaten at rallies, Democrats blocking free speech on campus, Kathy Griffin, Johnny Depp, blah, blah, blah? Sound of crickets.
What has this little man done of substance since he answered a phone call from an American traitor decades ago. He’s been coasting ever since. Who cares what he thinks?
Breaking news: The Press Projects Instability and a Touch of Cognitive Dissonance
So again, mo evidence required. He’s a famous one-trick pony “Master Journalist” so he can just say stupid things and get away with it. The proverbial hammers who thinks every problem is a nail. So if Bernstein even suggests that the “solution” might be impeachment, military coup or assassination, that’s enough to run with?
Fifty years ago, Bernstein got lucky once with Watergate but absent that, I really doubt anyone would know who he is. Has he done anything since other than relate everything to Watergate when asked for his opinion? Was Inflategate worse than Watergate? Should Tom Brady go to prison? Tell us why you still matter Carl! And no, I won’t read your next book to find out.
Bernstein is just like those “noted scientists” who like to opine on whether God exists, or Pope Frankie lecturing the world on global warming. Science has nothing to say about whether or not there is a God. Religion offers no special insights on the possible existence of AGM. Why do “journalists” report value those worthless personal opinions more than my worthless opinions?
Apparently a sense of humor is now a sign of mental instability. Who knew?
This is a joke that has been circulating at The_Donald over at Reddit for quite some time. People play with their computers, altering videos, pictures and cartoons, and post them for fun. I can guarantee that today, there will be cheering at The _Donald because he tweeted one of their “sh!tposts.”
I suspect DJT cares more about the response at T_D than in the media. Just at a guess.
Yup. (Language warning).
Where was this guy’s outrage when a bloody severed head that looked like President Trump was held up by a “comedian?” Or when the assassination of a President Trump figure occurrs night after night after night? How about the cowardly “women” blasting President Trump at rally after rally? Or thugs beating up Trump supporters? His fake outrage is just astounding, and so typical of a hypocritical left.
For perspective: Carl Bernstein is the guy who proclaimed with solemn dignity that the firing of James Comey was “the most dangerous thing for this country since Watergate.”
Watergate was Carl’s Finest Moment and he can’t forget it … or let anyone else forget it either. That’s why he ties absolutely everything to that one meaningful event because … well, because there isn’t anything else! His career before and after Watergate – phffft!
MSM – Trump exercising his constitutionally guaranteed right to free speech is against free speech and beneath the dignity of the office of the presidency which is charged with defending the Constituion.
If they think this is the path to re-establishing trust in the media, they are quite mistaken.
Anyone actually believe any “military leaders” actually talk to Carl? Washed up has-been whose Rolodex is getting skimpy?
Name me another 70 year old that has such a finesse with social media and trolling? President Trump is showing genius intuition to reach the great unwashed. The folks that watched his show and enjoyed him firing people. That enjoy his everyman common sense. His sense of humor. The guy is living rent free in all their heads and triggering them daily. Love it. I am NOT tired of winning. I grin everyday. This is awesome. Thank you Donald Trump for stepping up and saving the country. MAGA
who cares what he thinks? Who is he anyway?
He’s a one trick pony, who is an aging star of a cult of ignoramuses scared sh-tless they’ve lost their Soviet-like space in the elite, corrupt establishment oppressing citizens of the United States.
This also describes the GOPe. We’re going to soon find out if Pence is more loyal to the corrupt establishment or to his country.
In another life, Bernstein was one of King George’s hacks on this side of the pond, ratting out the Colonists.
Someone take Bernstein by the ankles and use him to beat the crap out of the rest of his corrupt, and now irrelevant, cronies.
Watergate was the beginning of the end of objective journalism. Post-Watergate journalism schools were flooded with social justice warriors who wanted to change the world rather than reportthe news.
It’s been a long time since Watergate, where the liberal press created fake news to force the President into a defensive position. Loyalty or sacrifice. Nixon may have made the wrong choice.
It’s not so long since Water Closet exposed the Clinton, the DNC, and Democratically-aligned Press as a Pro-Choice racket wallowing in [class] diversity, abortion rites, anti-nativism, baby hunts, etc.
What Bernstein is doing with hus understated invocation of some unknown military leaders in his comments is he is literally trying to lay the ground work for a military coup against the President on the phony grounds of Trump being insane. The media and some democrats in congress seem determined to start a bloody civil war.
The media is doing it with its constant agitation for left wing violence by calling Trump insane and his supporters NAZIs.
Democrats are agitating for a civil war by calling for a soft coup using 25th amendment by following on with the media’s false claims of insanity.
Democrats and media are also hoping Mueller and his cronies will find a way to mount a coup against the president.
The corporate media globalists and their traitorous partners in the democrat party have convinced themselves they can win a civil war and they are hell bent on starting one.
Trump needs to carefully set about getting rid of key Obama military personnel/generals etc. He needs to make sure military training materials have all the indoctrination materials from the Bush and Obama years brought back to an America First non globalist perspective.
These are dangerous times. More dangerous than I have ever seen. The danger comes from those who claim to be the civilized educated elites. Time for the rest of us to prepare.
message to Carl Bernstein “crawl back into your leftist hell hole” as the America is fun again
He’ll need a reservation – it’s getting crowded in that hole.
If he thinks Trump is unstable, he hasn’t been listing to the crap coming from the left for the last 20 years.
And today’s news is that the Washington Post has decided to pick a fight with a green, cartoon frog.
That is a front-page article in the San Diego Union-Tribune. Notice the important context that is lacking, namely that the Project Veritas videos showing CNN’s utter contempt for the voters, is lacking. It includes a reference to a “demonstration” calling for DJT’s impeachment.

Carl Bernstein has a strange definition of freedom of speech.
He apparently would like to suppress the POTUS.
Isn’t his 15 minutes up yet?
