‘You’re usually better than this at doing an interview’: Rand Paul attacks Wolf Blitzer when he demands answers about Trump-Putin

CNN's Wolf Blitzer and Sen. Rand Paul

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) attacked CNN’s Wolf Blitzer during his show on Monday. When Blitzer demanded answers from Paul about President Donald Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin, he failed to give a solid answer.

Paul said that people just “hated” President Trump and that’s why they are being hard on him over the summit.

“It’s not a matter of hating President Trump,” Blitzer said. “It’s a matter of what he did today, what he said today. He met with a President Putin as you know more than two hours, unlike other presidents. Especially on foreign soil, he blamed the United States for the bad relationship with Russia. He declined to back his own intelligence community for its assessment. He declined to support the U.S.”

Paul responded by trying to dodge the question, but Blitzer wasn’t letting him off of the hook. Paul then attacked Blitzer’s interviewing skills.

“You’re usually better than this, Wolf. You need to allow the respondent to respond,” Paul said.

“Go ahead,” Blitzer responded.

“I’m concerned about the use of bias against President Trump and absolutely with the president on this. The intelligence community was full of bias people, including Peter Strzok, McCabe and dozens of others,” Paul said.

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.

Asked about the president's attacks, Santorum tried to brush them away and blame the recipients of Trump's ire.

Published

A CNN panel convened to discuss new evidence that shows Donald Trump was heavily involved in the plot to keep his affair with adult film actress Stormy Daniels secret before the 2016 election concluded that it is one more impeachable offense.

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, CNN commentator Errol Louis said that the newly revealed texts messages and phone-calls between former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen and Trump aide Hope Hicks prove that the then-candidate was in the thick of it before the election.

"He did know, Errol," host Berman explained. "All the evidence is he knew. There's all these phone calls, there are the checks. There's Michael Cohen's testimony. The evidence says the president was lying to the American people."
