CNN’s Brinkley Gushes Over Obama ‘Preaching the Gospel of Civility’

Posted on 11 February 2016

On Wednesday's CNN Tonight, longtime Obama admirer Douglas Brinkley trumpeted the President's speech earlier in the day at the Illinois State Capitol: "Barack Obama is really preaching the gospel of civility right after Donald Trump won New Hampshire. There's a contrast of styles between Trump and the President there. I thought that it was a historical moment for the President — a journey down memory lane." Brinkley asserted that Obama is "deeply disappointed that he's not been able to...make public discourse less poisonous, as he put it. I think he thinks that's the most failed part of his presidency."
