Brian Stelter is brought to his knees after trying to ridicule Mitch McConnell over offering prayers in the wake of the weekend shootings

Brian Stelter has had himself a big weekend of puffing himself up with condescension, only to be recognized as a corpulent little corgi trying to raise his hackles to appear as an alpha dog.

In one of his many Tweets over the weekend Tater thought he had himself a pithy and damaging take on things when it comes to Mitch McConnell.

Six of the times @SenateMajLdr Mitch McConnell offered prayers to the victims of mass shootings.

Yes, he resorted to that tired leftist talking point of trying to mock those who lend sympathy after a tragedy, carrying the implied message that they only care after something bad happens, and do not want to act to prevent said tragedy.

It is an interesting position to take, for an objective unbiased and totally not-in-the-pocket-for-a-particular-party journalist to take. Brian was called out for his rather obvious slant on the matter.

Oh, Tater. It is customary in our culture to offer sympathy and emotional support to people who are grieving.

I'm starting to believe that working at CNN is killing your soul.

I always think that our NYC/DC journo class can't get any MORE shameless & mentally depraved but @CNN always brings the bar down lower and this is is AFTER you all invited on a white supremacist bc of "Orange Man bad"

Tweeting stupid Democrat talking points informs us what? That you're not really a journalist but a partisan hack? And this is CNN — Considerably Not News.

Is this supposed to be an indictment against him? If so, you really failed.

Cnn is prayer shaming now

— Dr. Richard Harambe (@Richard_Harambe) August 4, 2019

This is what it looks like when someone is caught. In the style that has become practiced for Tater, once called out for being insipid he strains to reframe his words. It is an attempt to show misinterpretation, rather than what he is doing — which is back peddling.

Nope. I'm all in favor of prayer. And I'm all in favor of reporting on what politicians do and don't do.

— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) August 4, 2019

Sure he is in favor of it – because at this stage he had no prayer in convincing people he was not a leftist hack.

Yes, but clearly there exists an insinuation behind the trend. Which is likely 'he's not doing anything'

— All The Fiends (@TylerDoor) August 4, 2019

Hmm. OK, but that looks a lot less like what reporting should look like and a lot more like what a deranged, creepy stalker would do.

Tell us then, Brian — how many other politicians did you report invoking prayer, in this same fashion.If your answer is "Zero", then you can scrub the use of the plural in your attempt to explain yourself here.

Back peddle faster. Christianophobe.

BREAKING: Politician prays but DOESN’T enact the gun control I want.

Some hard hitting news there, sis

Ain’t nobody buying this, Dem shill.

It’s always fun when the mask slips. Watching them scramble to attempt to keep the facade of objectivity while missing entirely that there is a swath of the country with differing perspectives.

From an El Pasoan: Stop your grievance pandering over the dead members of our peaceful community.We are very pro-gun and pro-military out here, so live with it.Plus, we reelected Sylvestre Reyes 7 times because he promised to get our big border fence built.

Mock organized religion and banish faith from the public square and then act surprised when nihilism and evil fill the vacuum.

But see, Brian is doing vital, important work here. Just ask him, he’ll tell you!

Reporting on what someone says on Twitter, so edgy.

— Andrew Reece (@AndrwMrkRc) August 5, 2019

Well let’s be honest — the people who do this are the pinnacle of our society and should be praised mightily!
