(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) In a move that media-watchers may have seen coming for months since former Rep. Adam Kinzinger announced his retirement, the fake Republican took another step toward becoming a full-fledged left-wing hack by joining CNN’s stable of on-air pundits, Fox News reported.
CNN announced their new senior political commentator earlier this week, just after Kinzinger and other outgoing congressmen left office.

Kinzinger—who became a media darling due to his Trump criticism, later performing as one of only two non-Democrats on Nancy Pelosi’s sham Jan. 6 committee—leveraged his notoriety to ink the deal with the struggling network, which has endured low ratings and several recent rounds of layoffs.
Kinzinger made his debut Wednesday in an appearance on Erin Burnett OutFront.

“Congressman, we really are thrilled to have you onboard. Welcome,” CNN anchor Erin Burnett said.
“It’s great to be on the team, by the way,” Kinzinger replied. “Thank you. I’m excited.”
He had made frequent appearances on the network for the past two years, so the move is unsurprising.

Because of his RINO “pro-freedom, pro-democracy” agenda, Kinzinger’s eventual transfer to the propaganda wing of the state seemed inevitable, as many pointed out soon after the news broke.
“Was basically giving CNN his resume for the past year,” Axios reporter Tim Baysinger tweeted.

“It’s the least CNN could do after his 2-year apprenticeship there,” Washington Free Beacon reporter Chuck Ross wrote, brutally mocking the RINO.
And folks thought CNN+ was going to be rock bottom for that network
