So she wrote the same column about disaffected blue collar types with different subjects in different locations over and over and over and over...and suddenly she's an ORACLE?

No. This move speaks to the stupidity of CNN, who since Jeff Zucker took over has done much to mess up the network. Hiring Lewandowski, whose hatred for reporters was one of his trademarks, said all that needed to be said about old Jeff. Salena's buds and the Cult of Scaife might think differently, but once you scratch the surface, if you can get past her sour and unpleasant on-camera demeanor, there's no there there.

Zucker, of course would not be smart enough to see it.

Zito jumped onto the scene by saying the media and others take Trump literally but not seriously, while his peeps take him seriously but not literally. If there is a kernel of truth to that, fine, and it is a pithy turn of phrase, which many in the media have jumped on and referred to. Until you look at it.

Why should not people take Trump literally? If you can't trust his literal words, because they are nonsensical or lies, then how good is the guy, and what would be the reason for trusting him at all? If you don't take him literally, are you endorsing and encouraging falsehood, dishonesty and lies?

And do his people who take him seriously but not literally have no appreciation for the fact they are thereby endorsing his falsehoods and lies, or, should one conclude they are fine with all his lies because they seriously want him in the Oval Office so badly? If you ask them what he is going to do in the White House, what do they say? We don't take him literally?

What they really seem to be saying is we like the guy and want to elect him, and it doesn't bother us that he lies all the time and we have no idea what he will do. That seems to be this great Trump movement. Sheep who want someone they like to take them here, there, anywhere, even to all manner of bigotry and xenophobia. And isn't that disgusting?

Exactly right.

And Queen Salena sees this as her stairway to the top. CNN is just desperate to improve their ratings. She's not going to do much for them. Blabbing with Ellis Cannon on PCNC stretches her limited skills to the max. Seeing her with any real conservative thinkers only demonstrates how mundane she is. As Trump's allure declines, and it will, she'll suddenly be back appearing in the alt-right publications where she would be considered a true visionary, where superficial thinking is encouarged. And she can think about the good old days writing propaganda for her benefactor, Dick Scaife.

Some think Salena is a journalist. Before Dickie brought her on board, wasn't sure mainly a political operative? McNickle was an arts writer out in Ohio.

CNN has high-stature contributors like David Gergen, S.E. Cupp, Van Jones and Maeve Reston. Zito and her alt right buds might aspire to see her in that kind of company, but it won't happen. Breitbart, on the other hand, is right up her alley.
