Comedian Bill Burr last week slammed CNN as “un-American pieces of [expletive],” which is obsessed with continuing coverage of former President Trump for its ratings.
During his “Bill’s Monday Morning Podcast” aired last Thursday, July 15, Burr blasted CNN anchors as moronic, America-hating blowhards who secretly covet a second Trump presidency for their ratings, New York Post reported.
“I swear to God, I cannot believe people watch that channel,” the comedian said. “They’re so dumb. They’re [expletive] treasonous un-American pieces of [expletive].”
Burr said he was triggered by his mother-in-law, who comes over to babysit his children and always puts on CNN.
“And do you know what those [expletive] morons are doing? Do you know what those [expletive] morons are doing?! They’re [expletive] talking about Trump,” Burr said of CNN.
“The Mandalorian” star claimed that CNN is obsessed with Trump because he is good for ratings, while President Biden is a disaster.
“They want him to come back. Because they had nothing to talk about, because it’s show business, and Joe Biden is a [expletive] bore,” he said. “They can’t bitch about [Biden] because he’s wearing a blue tie.”
“So now what do they do? They’re going out there, they’re doing what they did the first time to get this guy [Trump] elected, by giving him all this free coverage, while they act like they allegedly don’t like him. I don’t buy it. I don’t buy it. They are a corporate news channel,” Burr said in the podcast.
New York Post citing Nielsen data, reported that CNN experienced second-quarter primetime viewership down 68%, the most significant year-over-year drop in primetime among cable news networks.
