‘Back off!’: CNN panel explodes after Kayleigh McEnany complains the left isn’t getting behind Trump

Published

on

Van Jones and Kayleigh McEnany joined a CNN panel with Anderson Cooper on Wednesday night and discussed the protests happening across the country that were triggered by Donald Trump’s White House victory. “This is frankly the beginning of the anti-Trump resistance,” Jones said.

The conversation started with Cooper asking how the country would have reacted had Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton won instead. “Divided America before. Divided America during. Divided America after. That’s where we are,” Jones explained.

Jones discussed how Americans of color, Latinos, Muslims, the black community are terrified of Trump’s win, especially based on his campaign rhetoric.

McEnany tried to tell Jones how no one should be “stoking fears” in Americans, how people are terrified of Trump’s presidency because of the way the media portrayed him.

“That’s enough,” Jones cut in. “Now hold on a second. Muslim parents that are afraid right now aren’t afraid because of these kids with these signs. They are afraid because he said over and over again he wanted to ban people of their faith.”

“You want to explain to me why people who are scared shouldn’t be afraid,” Jones said, as McEnany pleaded over and over that he has to “correct that fear” in people.

“Back off,” Jones shot back. “You need to have a little bit of empathy and understanding for people who are afraid because your candidate has been one of the most explosively provocative candidates in the history of our country and there is a price to be paid for that.”

As McEnany once again tried to cut him off, Jones retorted, “I am not going to be talked over tonight. I’m not. You have people who are terrified and you have to take some responsibility for it.”

Here are 3 winners and 3 losers from the 2020 Democratic presidential primary debate

Published

on

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined the other leading Democratic presidential primary candidates Wednesday night in the fieriest evening of the race so far.

His presence on the stage drew fire from the other candidates, but it also seemed to change the overall tone of the debate, with more attacks, counter-attacks, and passion than was generally seen earlier in the campaign.

Here’s a (necessarily subjective!) list of the winners and losers from the fray:

Winners

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) — Warren hit her stride right as the debate started by attacking Bloomberg for his record on the mistreatment of women, racist policies, and his tax returns. She repeatedly came back to skewer the former mayor, making herself the biggest and most notable presence in the debate. But importantly, she also continuously brought the discussion back to the issues she cares about — like expanding health care, environmental justice,  and consumer protection — while getting in digs at the other candidates on the stage.

Someone online changed former Mayor Michael Bloomberg's information on Wikipedia during the Wednesday debate to say that he died on Feb. 19.

After being ripped to shreds during the MSNBC Democratic debate, it became clear that Bloomberg wasn't quite as prepared as the other Democratic candidates.

The Wikipedia article was also changed to indicate that his cause of death was Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

Bloomberg had several unfortunate moments, namely his refusal to release female accusers from nondisclosure agreements, he came out in favor of fracking, he blamed India for China's involvement in climate change, and many many more things.

At the Democratic presidential debate in Nevada, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg stumbled after being asked when he will release his tax returns, when he suggested that he "can't go to TurboTax" because he's too wealthy.

Moderator: "You've said you'll release your tax returns, but why do Democrats have to wait?"

Bloomberg: "We do business around the world. The document will be thousands of pages. I can't go to TurboTax."
