‘Some of us live in a factual universe’: CNN’s Ana Navarro slaps Trump surrogate over cratering poll numbers

Published

on

A CNN panel went off the rails on Tuesday’s “New Day” when conservative Matt Schlapp did whatever he could to avoid talking about President Donald Trump’s failing poll numbers.

When asked about the numbers, Schlapp said he would have to “check the poll,” and from there he pivoted to questioning the “science” behind climate change and celebrating “science” around abortion.

“I don’t see the legitimacy of your premise,” host Chris Cuomo said at one point.

Republican commentator Ana Navarro called out Schlapp for what he was doing.

“You’re trying to make the segment about something that it isn’t even about,” she accused.

She went on to pivot back to the CNN poll that shows only one in four Americans trust Trump, who she called a liar. Schlapp was so overcome by the accusation he accused all media of calling him and Trump supporters liars.

“You’ve talked abortion, you tried to make it about science,” Navarro said. “It’s about the fact the president of the United States goes out and lies either by Twitter or in person daily. Last week he told us he had phone calls he did not have with people who did not call him on the phone! Who he claimed told him things they did not tell him! That is a lie! Some of you may choose to believe ‘alternate facts’ and live in another universe. Some of us choose to believe in a factual universe.”

“Don’t call people liars!” Schlapp exclaimed.

“But he lies!” Navarro slammed. “He is a compulsive, pathetic, daily, liar! … that’s the definition of a lie. It’s a good one. I think you show own it.”

“You need to relax,” Schlapp said.

Carl Bernstein: There are 7-9 ‘wobbly’ Republicans who want witnesses but Mitch McConnell is trying to block them

Published

on

In a CNN panel discussion Wednesday, notorious Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein revealed that there are seven to nine Republican senators who are wavering after the compelling argument that the House has provided for the impeachment. The problem, however, is that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is refusing to allow any break from the party line.

"I think this is a hugely damaging narrative that was laid out today, and that Mitch McConnell understands, and has understood for a while that this hugely damaging narrative was going to affect his members," said Bernstein. "And that his strategy -- I've talked to some Republicans about this -- #MidnightMitch is to wear out his own members so that they don't vote for more witnesses because there are six, seven, eight, nine wobbly Republicans."

Republican Kevin McCarthy gets taken down by former top GOP colleague

Published

on

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was attacked by a former Republican colleague who alleged McCarthy and his fellow members of Congress have allowed the House GOP to become the official shill for the White House.

In a profile for the New York Times, former Oversight Committee Chairman Tom Davis (R-VA) shamed the GOP House for the way that a once-respectable institution has fallen.

“Congress no longer operates as an independent branch of government, but as an appendage of the executive branch,” said Davis. “He is made for that role.”

Former senator reveals to Maddow how one brave Democrat can reveal key document in impeachment trial

Published

Near the end of Wednesday's impeachment trial, Chief Justice John Roberts announced that an agreement had been made to allow senators to read supplemental testimony from Vice President Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams.

The document will remain classified, despite claims that there is no classified material in the document, only evidence that is damning to the president.

"In terms of this document potentially being improperly classified, which is something that has been raised in writing by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and raised on the floor of the Senate tonight by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA)," MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow noted. "Obviously, it was the vice president's office that said it was classified, they are getting publicly criticized for that. If it has been improperly classified and it should be something that the public can see, who adjudicates that?"
