The liberal media that is pushing Hillary Clinton down our throats while trashing Donald Trump every chance they get may not be as informed as they portray themselves. Take for instance CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin who is under the impression that there are term limits for members of the US Congress. Even funnier is that she made this mistaken point while trying to stick it to Trump.
Brooke Baldwin is a fairly attractive woman and perhaps she got her job more on her looks than her journalist chops. On Tuesday she was reporting that Donald Trump has made a pledge that if he were elected president, he would propose a Constitutional amendment that would place term limits on Congress.
Here’s what Baldwin had to say about this:
“As part of his pledge to quote ‘drain the swamp’ in Washington, he says ‘if I’m elected president I will push for a Constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress,” said Baldwin.
So far so good, but then she said this:
“Correct me, there already are term limits, so what does he mean?” Baldwin asked.
Okay Brooke, I’ll correct you. There are no term limits on either members of the US Senate or the US House of Representatives. They may serve as many terms as the constituents allow. In fact Hillary Clinton’s mentor and former Exalted Cyclops of the KKK Robert Byrd was elected 9 times to the Senate. Tax-cheat Charles Rangle has been in the House continuously since 1971. Rapist and murderer Ted Kennedy was a Senator for 47 years before karma caught up with him.
Now there are term limits for the President of the United States. After four terms of FDR turning our country into a socialist paradise, Congress passed the 22nd Amendment limiting presidents to two terms.
After Brooke Baldwin asserted that there are already term limits for Congress, fellow CNNer Dana Bash was speechless. There was a long uncomfortable pause and then Bash tried her best not to embarrass Baldwin’s stunning ignorance.
“Right, well there are term limits on the presidency of course,” said Bash.
The look on Baldwin’s face as she was being corrected was priceless. She appeared like she was smelling an Obama fart while watching a Hillary Clinton/Huma Abedin “Two Girls and a Cup” video.
It is absolutely amazing that someone who works for a major news source like CNN is this stupid. Elementary school kids know that there are no term limits for members of Congress. Whatever CNN is paying Brooke Baldwin, it’s too much. She isn’t qualified to flip burgers, let alone deliver the news.
It gets scarier because Baldwin doesn’t just read off of a teleprompter. She puts her two cents into issues and tries to shape opinions. The only people dumber than Baldwin are the ones that think her uninformed rhetoric matters.
