‘Extraordinarily uncomfortable’: CNN rolls cringeworthy close-up of Trump’s generals during his anti-FBI rant

Published

President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and generals in the White House.

The Secretary of Defense and Joint Chiefs of Staff were placed in an “extraordinarily uncomfortable” position on Monday when President Donald Trump used a White House meeting to claim that America is under attack because of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“During a meeting with his military leaders and national security leaders when President Trump addressed his grievances against Jeff Sessions and Rosenstein and special prosecutor Mueller over the raid on the office, home and hotel of his personal attorney,” anchor Jake Tapper reminded. “What are folks in the Pentagon telling you about the mood in the room among these national security officials and generals?”

“You only have to look at that video, everyone is saying it was very uncomfortable,” CNN’s Barbara Starr noted. “You see several general officers there, four stars, just staring and keeping their faces expressionless or staring down.”

“They are in a room with their commander-in-chief talking about an attack on the country, but the attack is actually Mr. Trump’s personal political problems of course,” she continued. “These men and women are charged with defending the country and they are listening to what is essentially a political statement by the president.”

“It is unprecedented in terms of putting them in an uncomfortable situation, politicizing the military, there is no question,” Starr concluded. “It was an extraordinary moment, extraordinarily uncomfortable for the Secretary of Defense, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and the chiefs, and all of the major commanders, Jake.”

Published

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani held a press event in Arizona on Monday in which he lobbed out more false claims that the 2020 election was "stolen" from President Donald Trump.

Among other things, Giuliani alleged that that Arizona's process for picking its voting machines was "corrupt," even though he acknowledged he had no personal knowledge about how the process worked.

One claim, however, shocked Reuters legal reporter Brad Heath, who said it went beyond anything that Giuliani had argued before.

Georgia secretary of state: ‘There are those that are exploiting the emotions of many Trump supporters’

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger warned on Monday that outside groups are trying to take advantage of the "emotions" of President Donald Trump's supporters with false information about the recent and upcoming elections.

"There are those that are exploiting the emotions of many Trump supporters with fantastic claims, half-truths, misinformation and, frankly, they are misleading the president as well," Raffensperger explained at a Monday press conference.

The Georgia official went on to announce investigations into over 250 claims of election irregularities.

"Upholding the law matters, truth matters, and your vote matters," he insisted. "Anyone telling you to boycott an election is not on your side. You're right to vote is sacred. Don't let someone con you out of it."

The View hosts mock Republicans for ‘shooting themselves in the foot’ on election conspiracies

Published

The hosts of "The View" couldn't help but notice that the Republicans are making it more difficult to get their own voters out to support Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) for the special election in January.

The problem the GOP has to overcome is that the overwhelming majority of Republican voters believe that the 2020 election was "rigged" by Democrats. It puts Republicans in a difficult place because now they have to combat that message with assurances that the Georgia special election isn't already rigged for the Democrats.

"I'm really sick of all of this," Whoopi Goldberg bemoaned. "I'm sick of people blaming American citizens for cheating in their own elections. I'm sick of this. You're blaming Republican governors. You're blaming people who are saying, 'Actually, no.' Why would they fight against their own interests, and, again, I will say if the Democrats had done this, why has everybody still got a job? None of this makes any sense to me."
