Just as they did when news broke of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death in September, Democrats and their mainstream media allies went into full meltdown mode as Amy Coney Barrett took her constitutional oath at the White House earlier this evening shortly after being confirmed to the Supreme Court by the Senate in a 52-48 vote.
There was no better example of the meltdown mindset than on the set of CNN, where anchors Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon sat in pouty, sour-faced agitation over tonight’s proceedings.
Cuomo, who is also known as “Fredo” Cuomo in certain circles, spent a good majority of his time on-air not talking about ACB and what cases she will soon be facing on the high court, instead choosing to whine about how this event was supposedly dangerously irresponsible on the part of the Trump administration because – in his opinion – it could end up being another superspreader event like Amy Coney Barrett’s Rose Garden nomination ceremony allegedly was.
Here’s one clip from Cuomo’s program where he and White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins fretted over whether or not VP Mike Pence would be attending the ceremony in spite of the fact that several aides close to Pence had recently tested positive for the Wuhan virus. There was also much gnashing of the teeth and finger-wagging about who was and was not wearing masks, which is rather ironic when you consider both Collins’ and Cuomo’s glaring mask hypocrisy.
Fredo, hypocrite (end of this clip): "The Vice President should be quarantining. He's been in close contact with people who have tested positive. There was the question that he would still be campaigning. The optics are terrible. The science is terrible. It's bad practice" (3/3) pic.twitter.com/GnfoHfvwZ1

Appallingly, here was the chyron CNN ran during the opening minutes of Cuomo’s “Prime Time” broadcast:
This CNN chyron isn't news. It's vile, poisonous propaganda.
They're not a news organization.
Do they have any definitive proof it'll happen? No, but they don't care. pic.twitter.com/6GGi6ZLhCT

Speaks volumes about the “seriousness” of CNN’s commitment to objective, respectable “journalism”, doesn’t it?
It didn’t get much better when his colleague Don Lemon took the reins for the 10 pm hour:
“We have an impeached president, who lost the popular vote, who has appointed and gotten confirmed one-third of the United States Supreme Court,” says Don Lemon on his show, if you’re wondering how things over at CNN are going tonight…

I should also note that CNN didn’t cover Trump’s speech at all tonight. They cut in only as Justice Thomas was administering the constitutional oath:
Only Fox News carried the Amy Coney Barrett swearing in full live.
CNN picked up coverage of the ceremony after President Trump's speech, carrying ACB's swearing-in and speech.
MSNBC failed to show a single second. pic.twitter.com/cMQpcdDEwi

Needless to say, this wasn’t a good look at all for the Biden Apologist Network, as viewers of the network pointed out:
CNN had Cuomo yammering throughout the ACB oath, with the chyron saying it was a "superspreader" event. Truly despicable.

Hey @CNN you do realize there is a live ceremony going on at the White House right now.. but you got Cuomo and company on crying about it.. no wonder your ratings are in the tank! #ACB #SupremeCourtJustice

Cuomo and the CNN sad sacks looked like they were in mortal pain as ACB, the new Supreme Court Justice was sworn in. They hated every minute and did their best to give in minimal coverage.

Nina Totenberg sounds totally chill about ACB which is probably the biggest indicator going that Chris Cuomo has jumped the shark.

Cuomo is spazzing out reporting on ACB confirmation
— Pub?? (@ahcheerup) October 27, 2020
I honestly love hearing hearing the media bitch about ACB being sworn in. They wanna make everything sound unfair, unjust and in chaos. I am relishing in their distress. @donlemon @ChrisCuomo are crying in their giant crib called @CNN.

Though it was amusing in some ways to watch Cuomo and Lemon beclown themselves in spectacular fashion in their “crib” more so than normal, I would be remiss in not stating the obvious for those out there who before tonight might have needed more proof that CNN is not, I repeat NOT actually a news network before actually believing it:
Tonight’s cry-a-thon between Cuomo and Lemon should settle that debate once and for all.
Chief Justice John Roberts will officially administer the judicial oath to Barrett tomorrow. Expect the fireworks to only intensify.
