CNN’s Jake Tapper swats down Trump defender bizarrely calling Ivanka’s critical immigration comments ‘fake news’

Published

on

CNN’s Jake Tapper hammered President Donald Trump’s former deputy communications director Bryan Lanza for defending Trump’s rants about fake news.

In an interview with Axios, White House Adviser Ivanka Trump, confessed she disagreed with her father’s zero-tolerance immigration policy.

“That was a low point for me,” she said. “I feel very strongly about that. I am very vehemently against family separation and the separation of parents and children.”

Lanza said that CNN was only focusing on Ivanka Trump’s differing views instead of the entire interview.

“She is doing something. It is different. CNN only wants to focus on one sentence of an hour-long event. That is fake news,” Lanza said.

Tapper would not let him off the hook.

“That’s a major policy decision. Something you don’t like does not become fake news,” Tapper said.

Neera Tanden, president and CEO of a liberal-aligned Center for American Progress, challenged Ivanka Trump to do more than just “talk about” the issues.

“She has privileges. She says this is a low point. I would just like to say to Ivanka Trump, the thing for her to do if she opposes family separation, there are children today, tonight who will still go to sleep not knowing where their parents are because of Donald Trump’s policies,” she said.

Tanden continued: “My suggestion to Ivanka Trump is maybe she should do something about that. We are talking months where children have been separated from their parents and White House advisers should actually do something and not just talk about it.”

GOP ignoring Sondland because they already know Trump is guilty and ‘just don’t care’: conservative columnist

Published

on

In a column for the Bulwark, the founder and editor of the conservative website took at hard slap at both Donald Trump's most avid defenders in Congress and their fellow Republicans who have remained silent after E.U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland testified in no uncertain terms that the president was engaged in bribery in his dealings with Ukraine's government.

According to Charlie Sykes, "Yes, there was a quid pro quo. The president demanded it. Everybody knew about it. There was no secret. But we knew all that didn’t we?"

Ex-Fox News executive caught running a disinformation and fake news farm — using writers from Macedonia

Published

on

A New York Times expose revealed that Fox News paid writers in Macedonia to create click-bait that prompt Americans to fight more about issues.

According to the piece, both the left and right websites created by an international content farm to inflame people enough to click and share content. Conservative Edition News and Liberal Edition News intentionally writes stories with the purpose to infuriate each side for the purpose of generating hate-clicks, response articles and more. Headlines like "Austin sex-ed curriculum teaches kids how to obtain an abortion" and "HuffPost writer considers Christianity 'dangerous'" give right-wing audiences fodder for anger to lash out at their counterparts.

The View’s Meghan McCain insists Democrats are too weak to impeach — and rants into commercial break

Published

on

The two conservative co-hosts of "The View" agreed the House hadn't turned up enough evidence yet to impeach President Donald Trump, but Meghan McCain erupted when she was interrupted for a commercial break.

Conservative Abby Huntsman has been more open to the impeachment inquiry, saying that Trump's actions toward Ukraine had been inexcusable, but she's not convinced he committed a crime worthy of impeachment.

But McCain, who has argued all along that Democrats were overplaying their hand politically, insisted Trump's opponents were too weak to take him down.

“One of the things that I pride myself in is we can’t get sucked into the Beltway in the media circles,” McCain said. “What I saw last night on the debate stage is not going to be good enough to beat him.”
