‘Donald Trump lies like we breathe’: CNN panel take turns bashing Trump shill defending Phoenix speech

Published

on

CNN may have fired Jeffrey Lord, but they’ve already found another Trump supporter to rile up viewers and panelists alike.

In a Wednesday night segment dissecting the president’s remarks in Phoenix, Arizona the night prior, panelists ranging from GOP strategist Ana Navarro, White House correspondent April Ryan and Democratic operative Paul Begala took turns beating up on Trump-supporting author Ed Martin.

When discussing the many times President Donald Trump has been caught in a lie, Martin attempted to downplay the president’s propensity for bending the truth.

“I don’t think crowd size rates an apology on adultery in the White House,” Martin said, alluding to former President Bill Clinton’s extramarital affairs. 

Immediately, Navarro was incensed.

“I‘m looking for leaders with moral standing. I‘m looking for integrity. I‘m looking for truth. I’m looking for leadership. I‘m looking for convictions. I‘m looking for knowledge. I‘m looking for policy. I‘m looking for somebody that is willing to call out racism,” Navarro said as Martin tried to interrupt her by making asides about Hillary Clinton.

Then it was Ryan’s turn.

“You like the fact that he’s pro marriage. You like the fact that he’s pro-life. You like the fact that he is anti-tax. You like the fact that he’s anti-climate. But then when you come into this major situation of Charlottesville,” she began, only to be cut off by Martin.

“We’re talking about last night,” he interjected. “Now you’re talking Charlottesville?”

“Last night was the fifth time this president has talked about Charlottesville because it’s that big and he spent over 40 minutes,” she said, launching into an account about how she watched Trump switch positions from one night to the other from the president’s press pool.

Martin still didn’t get it, though.

Voters knew, host Anderson Cooper interjected, what they were getting with Trump.

“I‘m shocked that so many people are shocked,” Begala began, conceding that Martin and Cooper were right to claim voters knew who they were voting for. “Donald Trump lies like we breathe. Every human being lies and politicians are human beings. But Donald Trump is — we’ve never seen somebody lie like this and it does matter, Ed, because those policies that many people voted for, he lied about.”

Begala began listing off policy promises Trump lied about (such as no cuts to Medicaid and removing troops from Afghanistan), but by then, the panel had devolved.

‘Rather than leading — he lies’: MSNBC panel says Trump is a ‘danger to the country’ because he can’t be trusted

Published

on

MSNBC commentators, former assistant US Attorney Maya Wiley and Rick Wilson, explained that President Donald Trump's most significant barrier is making it past his own lies to save America from the coronavirus.

"There's a case tonight being tested in Walton County, Florida. The heart of Trump country," said Wilson, referring to the panhandle county east of Pensacola. "That's not going to be something you can just walk away from if it turns out to be a real case. We're seeing these things popping up all over. The safe bet was always to say, 'This could be bad. We'll do everything we can to stop it.' But he can't stop himself from self-aggrandizing and lying about things. And it's actually -- setting aside my normal criticism of Trump -- this is a danger to the country that he is not a trustworthy person for the American people. Even people who like him now he BS's them all the time. Now, if he says it's not a problem and people are being hospitalized, it is a problem."

Trump ‘just wants this problem to go away’: President desperate to get coronavirus ‘off his plate’

Published

on

President Donald Trump is desperate for the coronavirus problem to go away, and he doesn't exactly care how it happens.

According to New York Times reporter Annie Karni, sources are telling her that the biggest concern Trump has is more about the markets than the deaths of Americans from the virus.

"First, let's establish, this is a president who tried to change science with a Sharpie when it came to hurricane path prediction," said MSNBC host Brian Williams. "That picture lasts forever."

"Even his allies on Fox and his allies outside the White House were kind of channeling to that proverbial audience of one that this was a great opportunity to look presidential and to tell the facts," said Karni. The Donald Trump we saw out there in the briefing room was very casual, kind of left the facts to the other people that accompanied him out there. But he clearly publicly and privately just wants this problem to go away. He wants to downplay it. He thinks -- he has called people who are talking about fears about it alarmist. He doesn't want to be alarmist, and he's kind of holding on to any comment that makes it sound like this will naturally be a problem that is removed from his plate. That's what we saw publicly, and that's what he's been saying privately as well."

Seth Meyers: You know Trump isn’t the chief law enforcement officer because he couldn’t pass the physical

Published

on

"Late Night" host Seth Meyers warned that the United States is sliding into authoritarianism under President Donald Trump.

Sounding the alarm Wednesday evening, Meyers cited reports that Trump was making lists of disloyal people, purging them from their jobs, hiring unqualified cronies in top posts, and claiming he has the right to interfere in criminal cases.

While speaking to the press last week, Trump even announced that he's allowed to be involved in all criminal cases because he's the chief law enforcement officer of the United States. It's actually a title used for the attorney general.
