CNN Host Issues Plea To Media Regarding President Trump's Mental Fitness
On Sunday, CNN host Brian Stelter discussed President Trump’s mental fitness during his show “Reliable Sources.”
“This past year has been full of reasons to question his fitness. President Trump promotes conspiracy theories. He shares racist videos on social media. He live-tweets Fox News shows that mislead him, while he derides real reporting as ‘fake news,’” he said.
Stelter continued, stating, “But, journalists are not judges or doctors. This is not a court or a hospital. What this moment needs from reporters is more reporting. Not more speculating or guessing or rumor-mongering, but more real reporting of what’s going on.”
Stelter also recently commented on President Trump’s latest controversial North Korea tweet.
“North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!” Trump wrote last week.
“When a president of the United States threatens North Korea by invoking the size of his nuclear button, it is fair to ask about his fitness. If a leader of another country were to do the same thing, I think many commentators, many reporters will conclude that he is not well,” Stelter said.
