Candice Bergen Bracing Begging to be hit by Trump

I laughed when I read these com­ments from Can­dice Bergen about the Mur­phy Brown reboot:

Bergen mean­while was asked after the panel about the show’s rel­e­vance at a time when the pres­i­dent is attack­ing the press.

“The news now, thanks to our pres­i­dent, is in con­stant tur­moil,” she said. “I think it will be reas­sur­ing to see Mur­phy stick­ing up for the press and stick­ing up to the president.”

Stand up for the media? Moth­ers and chil­dren are still pay­ing the costs of her show “stick­ing up” for sin­gle moth­er­hood a quar­ter cen­tury ago, but funny as that is the real com­edy came next

Asked what she thought when Trump called the media the “enemy of the peo­ple,” the actress replied, “I just thought: ‘We’re screwed.’”

Bergen added that she’s prepar­ing for the pos­si­bil­ity that the pres­i­dent might slam her show. “I don’t know what the reac­tion will be, and I’m try­ing to brace myself,” she said.

Brace myself?” That a big­ger joke than any we’ll see from the series. Bergen and writer Diane Eng­lish are pray­ing for Pres­i­dent Trump to attack the show. They under­stand that con­ser­v­a­tives are unlikely to bother with it and the best way to make their show a can­di­date for all kinds of Emmy con­tention and cred­i­bil­ity from the never Trump left is a hit from the president.

How stu­pid does she think we are?

I laughed when I read these comments from Candice Bergen about the Murphy Brown reboot:

Bergen meanwhile was asked after the panel about the show’s relevance at a time when the president is attacking the press.

“The news now, thanks to our president, is in constant turmoil,” she said. “I think it will be reassuring to see Murphy sticking up for the press and sticking up to the president.”

Stand up for the media?  Mothers and children are still paying the costs of her show “sticking up” for single motherhood a quarter century ago, but funny as that is the real comedy came next

Asked what she thought when Trump called the media the “enemy of the people,” the actress replied, “I just thought: ‘We’re screwed.’”

Bergen added that she’s preparing for the possibility that the president might slam her show. “I don’t know what the reaction will be, and I’m trying to brace myself,” she said.   

“Brace myself?”  That a bigger joke than any we’ll see from the series.  Bergen and writer Diane English are praying for President Trump to attack the show.  They understand that conservatives are unlikely to bother with it and the best way to make their show a candidate for all kinds of Emmy contention and credibility from the never Trump left is a hit from the president.

How stupid does she think we are?
