CNN now derides Stefanik’s stunt as “clearly against the rules,” adding further that the congresswoman, “who clearly has an eye on a future leadership role in the party,” is guilty of putting “on a bit of a show.”

Contrast this with CNN’s coverage of Warren in 2017 — it was more of the same type of news coverage for the Massachusetts senator’s supposed show of courage: “Silencing Elizabeth Warren backfires on Senate GOP.” The article that accompanies that CNN headline read: “Weeks after the women’s marches around the country turned out droves of anti-Trump protesters, Warren – silenced by male senators for attempting to read a letter from a civil rights icon – had given those women a new rallying point.”

CNN even memorialized the moment in meme-format, sharing the now famous #Resistance quote on social media with its more than 43 million Twitter followers.
