You just knew CNN would have problems with Trump’s speech, right? Apparently, they don’t think Trump did enough to reach out to Democrats. It seems that’s CNN’s chief concern.

CNN Laments Trump Using Patriotic Language in SOTU, Alienating Democrats
It didn’t take long for CNN to crank the anti-Trump ridiculousness up to 11 after President Trump’s State of the Union address. Just 19 seconds after Trump concluded his speech CNN host Jake Tapper, and later Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger, whined about how Trump used patriotic language that would inevitably “turn off” liberal Democrats. But their complaints weren’t directed at the melodramatic Democrats but at Trump himself.
Immediately following the speech, host Wolf Blitzer asked Tapper if Trump achieved his goal of unifying people. “Well, let’s put aside for one second the parts of the speech that everyone in the world likes. The inspirational stories of Americans and the calls to unity,” Tapper began. “What you saw tonight was President Trump, I think, with one hand reaching out his hand to Democrats, and with the other hand, holding up a fist. And this is almost the conundrum of Donald Trump.”

They’re so predictable! Nothing Trump says or does will ever be good enough.
