GOP operatives fear Trump is oblivious to how badly the Republicans will do in the midterms: ‘He’s totally delusional’

Published

on

According to CNN correspondent Maeve Reston, GOP officials fear President Donald Trump is oblivious to the strong possibility  that the Republican Party will suffer massive losses in the upcoming midterms.

Speaking with host John King, Reston said Trump is pumping out positive tweets about GOP candidates and their chances despite all signs pointing to a “blue wave” wipeout.

“President Trump has been putting out a lot of optimistic tweets about the midterm elections but there is a real concern among Republican operatives and donors he is totally delusional about the chances of taking back the House,” Reston explained.

She went on to add that Trump may be in the dark because no one close to him is willing to tell him the truth.

“He’s not focused enough on what he needs to do to keep control of the House,” she continued. “That is, in part, because there are not a lot of people around him willing to tell him the truth. So they are trying to get him moving in the right direction on that.”

“The president doesn’t like tough news, is what you’re trying to say?” a smirking King asked.

“Yeah,” Reston replied.

Trump spokesperson goes down in flames up against progressive reporter: ‘All you do is lie!’

President Donald Trump's spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany went down in flames up against Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks during a CNN panel Wednesday.

McEnany went on to try and spin the president as some sort of great leader for Black Americans. She said that the campaign is very "proud" of the president's record on issues involving people of color.

"He also just said he wouldn't change his position on the Central Park Five," cut in Cuomo.

McEnany tried to cut in, but Cuomo cut in. "Now, he said we'll leave it at that. Come on."

"Chris, you come — come on, you," McEnany shot back. "We've been talking about the Central Park Five and racism and all of these things going back to the 2016 election, problem -- American people didn't believe it."

CNN analyst demolishes White House’s latest attempt to stonewall Congress: ‘There is no provision for this immunity’

Published

on

Ahead of former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks being called to Congress to testify about former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation — during which she was, by all accounts, less than helpful — the Trump administration took the unprecedented step of advising Congress that Hicks was given "immunity" from talking to them by the president.

On CNN's "The Situation Room," national security analyst Shawn Turner demolished this legal strategy.

John Dean explains the big mistake Hope Hicks made by stonewalling Congress

Published

on

Former White House counsel John Dean, a key figure in the Watergate scandal, said Wednesday on CNN that there was a serious flaw in the attempt to prevent longtime Trump confidant Hope Hicks from testifying to Congress.

White House lawyers have asserted that Hicks has absolute immunity and is not legally required to testify about her time as Trump's director of communications. Hicks testified Wednesday during a closed-door hearing before the House Judiciary Committee — where she reportedly refused to answer questions about her White House job.

"Privilege is not being asserted here. Instead, the White House says that Hicks has absolute immunity regarding the time that she spent at 1600 Pennsylvania. Does absolute immunity even exist? And if so, can you explain to me the difference between the two?" CNN host Brooke Baldwin asked Dean.
