CNN’s Cuomo: Putin’s latest Russian hooker statement is another example of how he humiliates Trump

Published

on

During a CNN panel discussion on former FBI Director James Comey’s memos that were released Thursday night, CNN host Chris Cuomo pointed to the Kremlin’s response that called attention to the most tawdry aspects to the revelations which illustrated how Russian President Vladimir Putin subtly trolled President Donald Trump.

Speaking with CNN analysts Laura Coates and Josh Campbell, the “New Day” hosts read an official Kremlin statement that addressed the report that Putin boasted to Trump that Russia has “the most beautiful hookers in the world,” during a brief conversation.

According to a statement from Russian Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov, “President Putin could not say such a thing and did not say it to President Trump, taking in to account that they had never communicated before Trump became President. As for the main content of the book, I do not presume to judge. We did not read it.”

Pointing a Bloomberg report that showed there had been a discussion, host Cuomo pointed out that the Kremlin statement was an intentional jab at Trump

“It’s a reminder politically that Vladimir Putin is not Donald Trump’s friend,” Cuomo explained. “There may be a softness here trying to manage to make the relationship better. But every opportunity that Vladimir Putin has to embarrass him and expose the president of the United States, he does it.  Even on something as tawdry as this.”

“Certainly, and he capitalizes on it, of course,” Coates added. “That’s one of the reasons people have been questioning, including former FBI Director James Comey in his interviews, why is it  that this president of the United States is supportive  and not antagonistic to Vladimir Putin. He raises issues that have not been up. He tells people ‘don’t picture a pink elephant,’ that’s all they ever see.”

Even evangelical groups were disgusted by Trump’s Bible stunt: former White House faith adviser

Published

on

On CNN Tuesday, former Obama White House faith and race adviser Joshua Dubois said President Donald Trump's Bible photo-op in front of the church near the White House could backfire on him with his most critical voting bloc.

"I thought it was farcical. And it is kind of blowing up in his face even in the faith community and communities that support, him like some conservative evangelical communities," said Dubois. "The reason is Jesus stood up for everyday people, including the vulnerable, and didn't believe in false displays of piety, and yesterday President Trump ordered — or was okay with — everyday people being gassed and shot with rubber bullets in order to make his way to a false display of piety."

Former NBA player overcomes ‘crippling anxiety’ for protests: ‘We are tired of the tyranny of police’ and Donald Trump

Published

Former NBA player Royce White overcame his anxiety to lead protests over the weekend in Minneapolis.

Speaking to CNN Tuesday, White noted that if only people listened to football star Colin Kaepernick, who peacefully protested by taking a knee during the "National Anthem" sung at games, this would not have happened. He was trying to raise awareness about police brutality and the disproportionate attacks on people of color at the hands of police. At the time, conservatives, including President Donald Trump, blasted him for the protest, ignoring the reason for doing it and focusing instead on how he refused to stand for the song.
