The mean and increasingly incoherent presidential campaign of Donald Trump is oddly enhanced (in entertainment) by the spectacle of his surrogates on cable news shows.
"It's amazing," says CNN’s resident Donald Trump defender.
The good news for CNN was that a panel discussion Tuesday night featuring Donald Trump surrogate Jeffrey Lord went viral and produced all kinds of media buzz. The bad news for CNN was that lots of people were mocking the segment and shaking their heads at the idea that Lord is employed by the network as a political analyst.
There comes a time when a network has to take action against one of their panel members. I thought Jeffrey Lord couldn't sink any lower than this battle with Van Jones, but I was wrong.
"It wasn't racism," commentator Jeffrey Lord said. "He is calling attention to racism."
