CNN’s Jake Tapper unpacks years of Trump’s lies: He has ‘zero evidence’

Published

on

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump said his campaign was spied on and called it “spygate.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper asserted on his show that President Trump has “zero evidence” and has a history of making up “conspiracy theories.”

“While we’re sticking to the facts and telling you what we know, President Trump has no constraints since he simply makes stuff up,” Tapper said. “He frequently lies and has a long and well documented past with conspiracy theories with no concrete evidence ever provided.”

Tapper continued: “For years he perpetuated the myth that Obama was not born in the United States, and that he saw thousands of Muslims on TV celebrating 9/11, and he suggested Ted Cruz’s father might have been involved in the assassination of JFK, again zero evidence for this.”

Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), a 2020 presidential candidate, blasted her Republican colleagues on the Senate floor Tuesday morning over an election security bill.

According to the DOJ filing, as flagged by USA Today's Brad Heath, Hunter illegally used money donated to his congressional campaign to "carry out a series of intimate relationships" with women who were all involved in politics.

The DOJ argued that it needs to be able to discuss these affairs in front of jury in order to prove Hunter deliberately misused campaign funds.

The View erupts when Meghan McCain complains her dad suffered worse than migrant kids while held as war prisoner

Published

Meghan McCain tempered her outrage over the Trump administration's detention of children because she feels her father endured worse treatment as a captured Navy airman during the Vietnam War.

"The View" co-host agreed migrant children were being held in inhumane conditions along the southern border, but she found it hard to summon moral outrage.

"I just want to say one quick thing," she said. "Apparently, by the way, me saying, 'Can I say one quick thing,' is now becoming a parody -- it's just how I talk, it's one of my tics, I'm sorry.

"Calling these places torture facilities -- I understand it's a humanitarian crisis," McCain continued. "It's horrific to detain -- like you said, people in jail get soap and people in jail get toothpaste -- but I know what a torture facility looks like. I've been to one."
