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?
