Regretful Trump voter begs for forgiveness on CNN: ‘I am sorry I voted for him — I’ve enabled this monster’

A regretful Trump voter told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on Tuesday that she was deeply sorry for backing the president in 2016 — and she vowed to fight him “every day” to make amends.

During a focus group discussion on Trump’s presidency, independent voter Sydney Cohan begged America to forgive her for voting for Trump two years ago even as she swore to make amends for her decision.

“I just want to say to every American that’s having trouble with this — I am sorry I voted for him,” she said. “I regret it with all my heart. I feel like I’ve enabled this monster to destroy democracy, destroy everything that is good in this country.”

Cohan went on to detail the actions she’s taking to earn redemption for picking Trump in 2016.

“I’m definitely voting Democrat,” she said. “I’ve been knocking on doors, I’ve got a clipboard… I am canvassing for a Democrat in Wyoming.”

Elsewhere in the panel, Anthony Miles — who had previously told CNN at the start of Trump’s term that he liked what he saw — that he was now desperate to see the Democrats win back Congress this fall.

“We’ve got a very crazy man driving the train,” Miles said of Trump. “And he’s going to kill this country.”

CNN panel mocks the White House for promoting a photo of Trump looking ‘subservient’ to Pelosi

Published

on

The White House posted a series of photos of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) Wednesday after their meeting, showing Pelosi being the only person in the room literally standing up to President Donald Trump. It was an image that baffled the mind of at least one CNN panelist as to why the Trump people would be promoting Pelosi.

According to reports from those who were in the room, the president flew off the handle after Pelosi quipped that it seems all roads lead back to Russia for this president. It was at that point that Trump called Pelosi a "third-grade politician," though presumably, he meant "third-rate," and the meeting broke apart.

Max Boot calls BS on Republicans for trying to claim Syria is Nancy Pelosi’s fault because of impeachment

President Donald Trump is conducting foreign policy like a 1980s television character, according to conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot.

In a panel discussion about the letter Trump sent to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, Boot mocked Republicans for suddenly trying to claim that Trump's withdrawal from Syria was Speaker Nancy Pelosi's fault because of impeachment. It is unclear if Republicans are confessing the president is too distracted by impeachment to be making foreign policy decisions or if they are blaming Pelosi for military decisions.

"I mean there's a lot of really lame Republican talking points out there, Don," Boot said to CNN host Don Lemon. "But to suggest, as Rep. Liz Cheney and others have done that somehow Trump's inexplicable decision to give the Turks the green light to invade Syria — that was somehow the fault of Nancy Pelosi because of the impeachment process? What?"

Ex-counterintel official explains how lobbying laws could bring down Rudy Giuliani

Published

On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," former Justice Department counterintelligence official David Laufman explained to Chris Cuomo how President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani could go down for violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

"Why does this matter, this area of the law?" asked Cuomo.

"This was a statute enacted in the 1930s in response to pro-Nazi German elements of the United States, engaged in subversive propaganda activities so that the U.S. people or lawmakers when confronted with content, whether lobbying or an op-ed, can make an informed assessment based on who the real party is behind it," explained Laufman. "If it's a foreign party, the American people should be able to take that into account and assigning whatever weight they want."
