CNN interview turns into a train wreck as Trump booster fumbles to explain Trump’s ‘wins’

Published

on

In a segment about the White House launching bids against anti-Trump Republicans, CNN host Brooke Baldwin managed to impale Trump booster and Senate wannabee Kelli Ward on the president’s lack of concrete “wins” in his first six months in office.

“When you think about President Trump’s campaign promises, and we’ve been thinking about them a lot today, whether it’s repealing and replacing Obamacare, building a wall — none of that has happened,” Baldwin said. “There hasn’t been one major legislative accomplishment. Yes, the Gorsuch nomination was a win, but how concerned are you on staying on that message if the message isn’t working?”

Ward immediately switched gears to criticize her fellow Republicans for not repealing Obamacare, but still, at that point, had yet to name any other “win” other than the successful nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

“If you’re disappointed that issues haven’t brought about a win in terms of repeal and replace, are you disappointed in the president at all?” Baldwin asked.

“No, I think the president has done a great job,” Ward demurred. “He’s stayed on track, he’s encouraged the House and Senate to do what needs to be done.”

“With all due respect,” Baldwin said, “other than Justice Gorsuch, what is the president’s biggest win so far?”

“Justice Gorsuch is the biggest win so far, but there are a list of accomplishments like you cannot believe that Donald Trump has done. I mean I think that his executive travel order is also a win because he wants to keep America safe.”

Trump campaign ramps up smear campaign on Obama’s ebola czar for exposing the president’s COVID-19 bumbling: report

Published

on

Stung by a highly effective video he made for Vice President Joe Biden criticizing Donald Trump's response to the growing COVID-19 pandemic, the communications team working on the president's re-election is going after President Barack Obama's former ebola czar, Ron Klain.

Klain, who is now becoming a fixture on cable news, took part in a video ad touting the campaign of Biden, and used his expertise to rip into the Trump administration's efforts to deal with the national health crisis. That put a target on his back as the president's 2020 campaign team is trying to stem the damage that threatens the president's chances of being re-elected in November.

Why the novel coronavirus became a social media nightmare

Published

on

The biggest reputational risk Facebook and other social media companies had expected in 2020 was fake news surrounding the US presidential election. Be it foreign or domestic in origin, the misinformation threat seemed familiar, perhaps even manageable.

The novel coronavirus, however, has opened up an entirely different problem: the life-endangering consequences of supposed cures, misleading claims, snake-oil sales pitches and conspiracy theories about the outbreak.

So far, AFP has debunked almost 200 rumors and myths about the virus, but experts say stronger action from tech companies is needed to stop misinformation and the scale at which it can be spread online.
