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.”

Published

on

Why do evangelicals — or at least, white ones — love President Donald Trump so much? Why do they stick by a president who has barely even read the Bible, has defiled marriage, and embodies the antithesis of so much of what their churches preach? Why, according to polls, did they essentially decide overnight that it's no longer important for a president to have strong personal morals to be an effective leader?

Published

During an appearance on CNN's "New Day" -- along with fellow Republican Charlie Dent (PA) -- ex-Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) received a lecture from host John Berman on why Donald Trump's tweets and attacks on four Democratic lawmakers were racist.

While Dent revealed that down-ticket Republicans running for re-election in 2020 are "terrified" that Trump's descent into overt racism as a campaign strategy may kill their chances of holding their seats, Santorum said he was disgusted with the whole spectacle while saying he didn't see the attacks as racist.
