Either due to direct orders or just because they find him adorbs, CNN is doing as instructed by Obama: ensuring that their coverage of the Republican-controlled Congress falls only one of two ways: Either the GOP doesn’t get anything done or what they do get done is pointless and for show.
Case in point: two tweets (found by Twitchy) from CNN congressional reporter Dana Bash just one day apart.
On Thursday, Bash pleases her White House handlers by mocking Congress for not getting the votes together for a border bill.
Stopped counting how manyIn both parties said just today on floor they must do something on border crisis. But they won’t even vote now

On Friday, after the GOP does get the vote together, Bash pleases her White House handlers by mocking the vote as a “show vote”:
There is something surreal about all this gop effort to pass a house border bill that’s going no where & never was. Total show vote

White House to CNN: The GOP Congress can never be portrayed as doing anything right.
CNN to White House: Your boots taste like chocolate.
