John Kennedy has become somewhat of a folk hero on cable TV since his moving from the Louisiana Treasurer’s office to the US Senate. He’s somewhat of the go-to guy for quips and quotes on the burning issues of the day.
This morning, he appeared on CNN’s New Day. The issue? Of course, President Donald Trump and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.
Since their joint appearance on Monday, there has been much speculation, outrage, counter-outrage by the media, the left and the right over whether Trump presented a strong image last week at the NATO conference and in Finland, at the summit.
President Donald Trump says the media is FAKE NEWS and not reporting on major news stories hurtful to Democrats, such as missing FBI text messages.

Every day it is becoming clearer that CNN, the once proud ratings giant and unquestioned cable network news leader, has become a total laughingstock. It has literally “jumped the shark,” meaning that a once proud broadcaster has become absurd. The original definition referred to the fifth season premiere episode of the hit show Happy Days, in which the main character, Fonzie literally jumps a shark while water skiing with his signature leather jacket. It is also a perfect reference to a broadcast network like CNN that has diminished greatly in quality and popularity.
One could expect that the Emmy’s would shoot at Hollywood’s favorite target Donald Trump, last night. But, did anyone anticipate that one of the President’s top protagonists would shoot at himself during the popular television show? That’s what essentially occurred Sunday night when former Press Secretary-interim Communications Director, played a cameo role as Saturday Night Live’s Melissa McCarthy, who shot to TV fame playing, of course, Spicer.
