Thursday night’s revelations that Michael Cohen is willing to testify that then-candidate Donald Trump knew that his son Donald Trump Jr. intended to meet with a Russian spy to collude in the 2016 election was swiftly followed by Rudy Giuliani conducting a confused interview on CNN in which he attempted to undermine the credibility of the president’s longtime personal attorney.
Pulitzer-prize winning reporter Michael D’Antonio had no doubt that Donald Trump knew about the plan to collude with a hostile foreign power.
“He absolutely knew about it the day that it was revealed that this meeting took place,” he said.
Giuliani humiliated himself in trying to attack Cohen, D’Antonio said.
“If you watch Chris Cuomo with Rudy Giuliani this evening, Donald Trump is now sucking Rudy Giuliani down into that giant swirling vortex because Rudy Giuliani looked terrible doing everything he could to call Michael Cohen a liar,” he said. “Rudy Giuliani and everyone who’s touched by Donald Trump is disgraced by him.”
‘You have to think about it?’ Kris Kobach goes down in epic flames when CNN’s Cuomo asks if he’d vote for a racist
Kris Kobach went down in flames going up against CNN host Chris Cuomo on Tuesday, as the Kansas Republican attempted to "explain" what President Donald Trump "really said" about the four congresswomen of color he attacked Sunday.
Cuomo read Trump's quotes aloud asking if they were racist.
"Now you're editorializing it," Kobach said. "The problem with Twitter, it's 140 characters and since it's so vague--"
As a point of fact, Trump used three tweets to say what he said about the women, not editing it down to 280 characters.
"He said the words," Cuomo fact-checked.
CNN blasted for giving a platform to white supremacist Richard Spencer to defend Trump’s racism
CNN was highly criticized on Monday for interviewing Richard Spencer, an avowed white supremacist who took part in the fatal "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
"CNN interviewed white supremacist Richard Spencer during a Tuesday segment on President Donald Trump’s racist tweets, in another example of a news outlet inadvertently giving a large platform to white supremacists," The Daily Beast reported.
Texas Republican women think Trump wasn’t being racist — because ‘he didn’t say a color’
On Tuesday, CNN reporter Randi Kaye interviewed a group of eight Texas GOP women about President Donald Trump's racist attacks on four black and brown congresswomen who have criticized him. And they broadly refused to accept that his behavior was racist.
"How many of you don’t think what the president said was racist, raise your hand?" said Kaye, continuing in a voiceover, "These eight Republican women from Dallas don't see anything wrong with President Trump telling four Democratic Congress to go back to where they came from.
"He was saying if they hate America so much because what we’re seeing out of them and hearing out of them, they hate America," said one woman. "If it’s so bad, there's a lot of places they can go."
