Michaela: She literally left us all speechless. Ugh! To the disgust of ND news reader Michaela Pereira and guest co-host Brooke Baldwin and the amusement of regular co-anchor Chris Cuomo, CNN correspondent Jeanne Moos plumbed the depths of the human anatomy and good taste this morning.
Introducing another wacky Moos’ story re a snake which had ingested a towel (vid), an unprepared Brooke intoned, “This next story I’m going to be watching like this [with her hands over her eyes] because it involves a very large snake…pet boa constrictor named Killer undergoing an hour-long emergency surgery….* After Moos reported on the successful surgery, she discussed other such pet stomach removals, namely, golf balls, pennies, and drugs.
Subsequently, she took it to a lower level. Snapping her towel prop into the camera as if into the viewer’s visage repeatedly, Moos remarked, “And, as for a towel, a towel is practically an appetizer compared with what people enjoy and ingest: Instead of plugging into the wall, imagine plugging an electrical chord into your very own rear socket.” In a disgusting, fulsome collage including an electrical chord, a salt shaker, an egg beater, spectacles, cassette tape, tuna can, light bulb, Barbi doll, and handgun, Moos seemed to revel ribaldly in her litany of items that had been found their way into the abyss of the alimentary canal. Signing off proudly, she proclaimed, “Jeanne Moos, CNN, New York.”
As Brooke brought her papers to her face in amazement and as Chris smiled faintly, an incredulous Michaela remarked, “She literally left us all speechless.” Repulsed, Brooked chimed, “And, people are eating breakfast! That’s all I’m saying!” In reply, Michaela exclaimed, “Sorry!”
Seemingly, similarly surprised, Chris declared, “That threw me! I thought it was a story about eating things because of the snake.” Shrugging her shoulders, Brooke said, “No, it was”: Before she could finished, Michaela interjected, “She kind of went there!”
Grinning goatishly, Chris gleefully guffawed, “Yeah! Kind of back-doored us on that one! Grimacing, Brooke aptly concluded, “Let’s move on!”
New Day: Poo Day today!
