Erin Burnett calls out GOP not endorsing but voting for Trump: ‘That is an endorsement’

Published

on

CNN anchor Erin Burnett got real about Republican support for Donald Trump on Thursday night’s OutFront.

Burnett brought attention back to some of the lawmakers who jumped ship after the Washington Post released the now infamous Trump tape in which the presidential candidate is bragging about sexually assaulting women.

She says, “When you have Republican lawmakers who are coming back — some of them are, some of them are still running but some of them are coming back. The tape came out, and that was sort of the straw that broke the camel’s back.”

“You have a whole bunch of them that ran away,” Burnett continues. “One of them was Jason Chaffetz, the Congressman.”

After the initial release of the Trump tapes, Chaffetz said “I’m not going to put my good name and reputation and my family behind Donald Trump for President when he acts like this. I just can’t do it.” That was on October 7.

Now, the Utah Republican has taken to Twitter to suggest that while he will not “endorse” Trump, he is voting for him.

Burnett calls it like it is. “I have to say, this is one of the things I can’t stand,” she says. “When people say ‘I’m voting for someone but I’m not endorsing them.'” She continues, “I’m sorry, then don’t say who you’re voting for, OK? Because that is an endorsement.”

She then lists the other Republicans who have responded similarly.

BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women

Published

on

The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.

The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.

"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.

Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has also been associated with Harvard Law for five decades, was asked about Dershowitz's argument during an interview with Chris Hayes.
