CNN’s Alisyn Camerota bashes Sean Hannity for lying about Trump campaign appearance: ‘Who does he think he’s fooling?’

On Monday night, Fox News host Sean Hannity made an appearance onstage at President Donald Trump’s rally in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, where he helped rile supporters by bashing the “fake news” covering the event.

Hours before, Hannity had pledged the opposite and criticized reporters who said he would go onstage to campaign.

“To be clear, I will not be on stage campaigning with the President,” Hannity said before being on stage to campaign with the president.

On Tuesday, a CNN panel reacted to Hannity’s behavior. Anchors Alisyn Camerota and John Berman both agreed that Hannity’s actions were a different sort of thing than you typically see from even partisan hosts, and wonder aloud what people would say if CNN’s nighttime anchor Don Lemon went onstage to campaign for a candidate.

“There was really a remarkable moment in journalism last night,” Berman said.

Camerota gave him an incredulous scowl.

“I think you’re stretching the use of ‘journalism,'” she said.

As Berman explained the situation, Camerota cringed and looked down.

“Who does he think he’s fooling?” Camerota said. “Here’s what’s going on at Fox. They know, vaguely, that they’re not supposed to have one of their hosts endorse a candidate or party, but Sean Hannity can’t help himself… they’re having a schizophrenic moment over there, trying to figure out what their role is supposed to be.”

Camerota then said there are “complications” when Fox News “tries to call itself a news organization.”

MSNBC anchor Anderson Cooper was visibly angered by claims made by former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich during a Friday evening CNN interview.

Blogojevich was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for corruption while in office that included attempting to sell the U.S. Senate seat vacancy created when Barack Obama was elected president. His sentence was commuted by President Donald Trump.

Cooper lectured Blogojevich for getting sued while governor over a backlog of 3,000 clemency cases.

The CNN anchor described it as "a little ironic and frankly a little sad and pathetic and hypocritical."

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) suffered a legal setback after losing a major lawsuit he had filed.

"A federal judge has tossed out a racketeering lawsuit House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes filed last year against the private investigation firm at the heart of the Trump-Russia saga," Politico reported Friday evening.

"Alexandria, Virginia-based U.S. District Court Judge Liam O'Grady's two-page order made short work of Nunes' suit, which sought $9.9 million in damages from Fusion GPS, its founder Glenn Simpson and a nonprofit watchdog group, Campaign for Accountability," Politico explained. "The judge also signaled that pressing on with the legal battle could result in sanctions against Nunes and his attorney, Steven Biss."

The ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee is suing Washington, DC's hometown newspaper.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) announced that he was suing The Washington Post during a Friday appearance on Fox News.

“A senior U.S. intelligence official told lawmakers last week that Russia wants to see President Trump reelected, viewing his administration as more favorable to the Kremlin’s interests, according to people who were briefed on the comments,” The Washington Post reported Thursday. “Trump learned about Pierson’s remarks from Rep. Devin Nunes (Calif.), the committee’s ranking Republican and a staunch Trump ally, said one person familiar with the matter.”
