The Democrats gloated about a big blue wave.
They assumed they would sweep the House and the Senate in the midterms.
But CNN got hit with a big surprise on election night.
The Democrats are still sore over 2016.
They still haven’t come to grips with the fact Hillary Clinton lost.
Since then, the left made it their mission to destroy Donald Trump.
And by any means necessary.
They’ve thrown everything in the book at him.
Democrats said he used the office of the presidency to enrich himself.
They said he colluded with Russia to steal the election.
They said he obstructed justice.
They’re accused him of racism, white supremacy, and outright Nazism countless times.
All slander with no foundation.
In their fervor, the Democrat Media Complex convinced themselves America agreed with them.
They thought all of America hated Trump.
Hollywood jumped in to amplify the message.
The left thought for sure they had control of the narrative.
In a particularly brazen move, the media tried to convince Americans a large caravan marching toward the border was irrelevant.
The media even tried to downplay George Soros’s connection to the caravan by insisting it was anti-Semitic to criticize him.
The Democrats were certain a blue wave was on the horizon.
But it wasn’t.
The party out of power typically performs better in the midterms.
On average, they pick up 25 seats in the House.
But the Democrats sold their base on a sweeping mandate.
In 2010, Democrats lost 63 seats.
They were expecting a similar wipeout.
Instead they only did slightly better than average.
The disappointment in the mainstream media was palpable.
The bellwether state of Florida signaled a good night for Republicans when Andrew Gillum went down in defeat.
Gillum was a pet project for the left who received a ton of money and celebrity endorsements.
He still lost.
As the news began to roll in, CNN realized their dreams were dashed.
Jake Tapper lamented, “When you look at what’s going on here, this is not a blue wave.”
It got worse for Democrats.
Incumbent Senator Bill Nelson lost to former Governor Rick Scott in a tight race.
Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams also lost.
She also received heaps of support from Hollywood, including an endorsement from Oprah Winfrey.
Van Jones, the host who called the 2016 election a “whitelash,” said the midterms were “heartbreaking.”
But they expect the American people to believe they’re objective.
The blue wave didn’t happen.
Or did it?
The media are great at manipulation.
They adjusted their talking points and said yes, indeed, a blue wave did happen.
The Democrats’ mildly above-average performance was a blue wave.
Never mind they lost seats in the House, and all of their rising-star candidates lost.
This is not objective journalism.
No matter how hard networks like CNN push.
Ironically, CNN founder Ted Turner believes they’ve gone too far.
Turner said in a recent interview that the network is too politically biased.
The election results appear to bear that out.
