Corporate news hosts went insane after the election of Donald Trump.
Their default position became intense anger about everything.
Now a CNN host was outraged that Jeopardy contestants blanked on one clue.
CNN host Don Lemon has a lot to be upset about.
The Orange Man announced he was running for president again, the Republicans reclaimed the House of Representatives, and he was demoted to mornings after having a primetime show.
But now Lemon is riled up over the fact that Jeopardy champions were not familiar with newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson.
Host and former Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings gave the clue: “She’s the first black woman on the Supreme Court and the first justice to have been a federal public defender.”
All three of the contestants were stumped.
Lemon and co-hosts Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins stupefied.
Lemon took off his glasses and said in exasperation, “These are smart people!”
Harlow added, “She was just confirmed. It’s been in the news!”

The fact that none of the contestants knew the answer should’ve been a wakeup call for the CNN hosts that not everyone’s day-to-day life revolves around politics.
Most people don’t sit around all day and watch CNN, which is reflected in the network’s ratings.
But liberal journalists are narcissistic enough to believe that the world revolves around them and the things they care about.
The fact that none of the contestants knew Jackson’s name also shows that just because the corporate press says over and over that something is historic does not make it so.
Women and black people have been on the Supreme Court before, so Jackson’s confirmation isn’t the earth-shattering move Democrats believe; Sonia Sotomayor, a woman of color appointed by a black president, already sits on the court.
Perhaps the most notable moment of Jackson’s confirmation hearing was the fact that she could not define the word “woman.”
When Senator Marsha Blackburn asked Jackson if she could define woman, she replied, “I’m not a biologist.”
As crazy as that is, Jackson’s answer wasn’t even entirely satisfactory to the left.
USA Today wrote in response, “Scientists, gender law scholars and philosophers of biology said Jackson’s response was commendable, though perhaps misleading. It’s useful, they say, that Jackson suggested science could help answer Blackburn’s question, but they note that a competent biologist would not be able to offer a definitive answer either. Scientists agree there is no sufficient way to clearly define what makes someone a woman, and with billions of women on the planet, there is much variation.”
This is how insane Democrats have become.
Jackson’s loony answer wasn’t left-wing enough.
Jeopardy recently got in hot water after including a clue referencing the brutal murder of Gabby Petito at the hands of her boyfriend, who later committed suicide and left a confession note.
However, contestants not knowing the name of Jackson is probably a bigger scandal among leftists.
