WATCH: Corey Lewandowski tells CNN Trump is winning Hispanic voters — and suffers total humiliation

Published

on

Cable news shows aren’t exactly good about fact checking their guests in real time — but every once in a while a guest tells a whopper so big that it can’t be ignored.

That was the case on Monday morning when former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski tried to defend his boss’s record of reaching out to minority voters and claiming that Trump is winning the Hispanic vote.

“If you look at this and you look at the election results, and where the polls stand right now, Donald Trump is doing better with Hispanics, he said he’s going to win Hispanics,” Lewandowski said.

“What poll are you talking about?” New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota interjected.

“It’s a poll out last week that shows that,” he said, without citing a specific poll. “He’s receiving 33% of Hispanics, which if you look at what Mitt Romney received, or John McCain received, he’s way ahead.”

In reality, the latest Pew poll of Hispanic voters showed that Trump is getting just 24% of Hispanic voters while Hillary Clinton is getting 66%. In a 2008 poll taken at around the same time, Barack Obama received 66% support from Hispanics, while John McCain received 23% — in other words, Trump is polling at the same as McCain and is not “way ahead.”

The best part of the video, though, has to be Hillary Clinton surrogate Christine Quinn’s look of total disgust as she watches Lewandowski try to spin that Trump is doing wonderfully with Hispanic voters.

Tongue-tied GOP strategist crashes and burns on-air while trying to deny Trump’s racism

Published

on

Republican strategist Amy Tarkanian crashed and burned on CNN on Saturday while attempting to deny President Donald Trump's racism.

"I do not believe that the president’s tweets were racist. I do believe they were not well thought out. He needs that extra, 'Are you sure?' button on Twitter," Tarkanian argued.

"I'm a black man, I'm a Republican and a black man," the Rev. Joe Watkins interjected. "My mother's an immigrant, I would be angry if someone said that to my mother."

"Oh, it’s very offensive. But he did not say, because you are this color, go back to where you came from," Tarkanian argued. "I’m not supporting that tweet. Was it racist? No. Was it stupid? Yes."

Trump supporter blames Democrats for being targeted by the president: ‘Why is that racist?’

Published

on

CNN interviewed a supporter of President Donald Trump in Eau Claire, Wisconsin who refused to acknowledge the racism in the president's "Go Back" attacks on four women of color in Congress.

The network interviewed Kerri Krumenauer of Wiersgalla Plumbing & Heating Company about Trump's attacks.

"How is it racist?" she asked.

"If you don't like this country, get out," she demanded. "Leave!"

She then showed how misinformed she was about the incident.

"He didn't use any names -- they stood up," she falsely claimed. In fact, Trump did use names and the targets did not stand up as they were not at his North Carolina campaign rally.

2020 Election

Here’s how Trump hopes to recreate his 2016 presidential win — and how Democrats can send him packing

Published

on

Writing for CNN on Saturday, election forecaster Harry Enten explained how President Donald Trump's recent, racist behavior lies in his desire to recreate the same electoral conditions that gave him a victory in 2016 in the presidential election next year.

"The Trump strategy is pretty simple: 1. Drive up the unfavorable ratings of his Democratic rival as he did in 2016 in order to compensate for his own low ratings. 2. Bank on an electoral college/popular vote split as he did in 2016. 3. Use a campaign of racial resentment to drive up turnout even more among groups favorable toward the President," wrote Enten. As he noted, Democrats have excellent odds to flip back Michigan and Pennsylvania, but they will have to work harder to win back any of the other states Trump flipped from the 2012 Obama camp — in particular Wisconsin, which was the closest state after those two.
