NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Thanks for Flying 'Let's Go Brandon Airlines'

November 1st, 2021 8:14 PM

Several CNN pundits and an AP reporter were extremely triggered by an alleged use of the phrase "Let's Go Brandon" at the end of a Southwest Airlines flight from Houston to Albuquerque. People wanted the pilot summarily fired.

CNN pundits were especially outraged. Asha Rangappa bizarrely compared "Let's Go Brandon" to "Long Live ISIS." On what planet does any reasonable person compare suicide bombers to jokes of cloaked profanity? Juliette Kayyem argued the pilot was exhibiting "the possibility of anger management or substance abuse."

We also discuss the lame tiki-torch Trumper stunt to mock GOP candidate Glenn Youngkin in Virginia (blamed on the "Republican" Lincoln Project), and Brian Stelter's remarkable 11 and a half minutes of invective at the top of his Reliable Sources show imagining how Trump and his "MAGA media" would ruin everything for America in 2022, 2023, and 2024.
