CNN anchor Anderson Cooper effectively threw Barack Obama under the bus in an effort to slam President Donald Trump, proving that the left’s Trump Derangement Syndrome is doing them more harm than good.
Cooper was critiquing Trump for his “lack of interest” in Russia’s alleged attempts to influence the 2016 election — citing the not very Trump-friendly Washington Post, he called the effort “the crime of the century.”
Exacting a standard not seen during the Obama years — when the alleged meddling occurred — CNN was emphatic about asking what Trump is doing to address this.
Cooper pointed to an article from The Post about Obama’s “secret struggle” to react to intelligence suggesting Russian President Vladimir Putin was directly involved in the effort and that his administration “did far less than warranted.”
Yet, where was CNN’s concern then?
Trump took to Twitter to ask the question the network has a lack of interest in asking:
And while the liberal media was quick to ridicule Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in 2012 when he said Russia was our biggest threat, CNN could not care less about the double standard — the irony being the media now dramatically claims the Kremlin is “a threat to democracy.”
The reaction on social media to the whole sordid affair showed that folks on the right were happy to call attention to the hypocrisy… and that Obama did nothing.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
#Obama did nothing in real time, was this the "flexibility" he promised Putin? @POTUS isn't interested in being… https://t.co/bdczwfLxdl

Weird how Obama was actually caught on tape colluding with Russia, right?
Not a shred of evidence against Trump… https://t.co/QgqIKFumSM

You mean the threat that the Obama Admin literally ignored because they thought Hillary was going to win? Good one! ??????

According to Obama, Romney didn’t know what he was talking about.

Exactly. Why the heck didn’t Obama investigate Russia? Oh yeah, because he thought it would help his party…

So Obama knew & did zero but the fact Trump isn’t bombing Russia over it it’s all his fault?!? Pathetic! This is ridiculous!

@andersoncooper If I checked your tweets from 2012, would I find comments in support of Romney’s concerns about Russia during debate? Hmmm..
