CNN headline fulfills Trump scheme by declaring he is ‘winning’ war to ‘demonize’ Mueller

Published

on

In self-fulfilling headline on Tuesday, CNN declared that President Donald Trump is “winning” the war to “demonize” special counsel Robert Mueller.

Writing on Chris Cillizza’s CNN blog in an article titled, “Trump is winning his effort to demonize Mueller,” Z. Byron Wolf argues that Trump’s “witch hunt” mantra is “working, for now.”

“But in terms of the Russia investigation, he’s embarked pretty clearly on an effort to make everything Mueller does out to be about politics rather than justice, and in doing so, he’s winning the argument,” the CNN contributor opines. “In large part, he’s winning it because he’s the only one arguing right now. Robert Mueller, presumably hard at work on his investigation, is not out in public defending himself or his staffers.”

Wolf adds: “Particularly among Republicans, [lower approval ratings] of the Mueller investigation [have] followed. It is when Mueller is viewed as a partisan — and that’s what Trump has tried to hammer into people’s minds for months — that the President can try try [SIC] to inoculate himself whatever action Mueller might someday take.”

Trump was likely in search of headlines when he embarked on the campaign to undermine Mueller. With the article on Cillizza’s blog, Trump has already achieved part of his goal.

Fox News host: Teachers practicing COVID safety are like ‘George Wallace standing in the school door’

Published

Fox News host Mark Levin on Sunday accused teachers who want COVID-19 safety measures of re-enacting Jim Crow-era segregation rules.

Levin made the remarks during a rant about President Donald Trump's executive action on COVID-19 financial relief.

"Democrat governors have shut down this economy from sea to shining sea," Levin opined. "And they like it both ways, the Democrats. They want to lock up everybody like we're lamb in cages and then they want to complain about the economic consequences."

"And then they say, this president, look what he's doing," he continued. "Let me tell you, payback is a bitch. You remember Obama with his phone and his pen. Well, apparently he left his phone and his pen and President Trump picked it up."
