CNN panel gangs up on Rick Santorum for claiming to be a ‘moral leader’ while excusing Trump’s porn star coverup

Published

on

On Thursday, CNN’s Anderson Cooper’s panel went off the rails at President Donald Trump defender Rick Santorum, after he claimed that the president’s affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels was not a big issue.

CNN contributor Jeffery Toobin slammed Santorum for calling Trump’s scandal with Daniels non-problematic.

“Putting aside the whole issue of how amazing it is to listen to Rick Santorum who made his entire career, successful for a time, on the basis of morality in politics making excuses for paying off porn stars and women with whom [Trump]  had affairs with,” Toobin said.

“You say his problem is he keeps lying and his explanations about it. Isn’t the reason he’s lying is that he did something bad in the first place? If he did nothing wrong, why doesn’t he tell the truth?” Toobin said.

CNN political analyst Kristen Powers also called out Santorum.

“You’re basically saying he didn’t commit a crime except for the crime that he committed. You know? It’s like that’s the whole point. It’s not about whether it was the contribution. It’s about the conspiracy basically to hide it,” she said.

Santorum defended himself by saying, “It’s not what he did was wrong, it’s what he didn’t report that was wrong.”

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

John Bolton just got put in his place: report

Published

National Security Adviser John Bolton has wanted a war with Iran since long before many Americans were even born. But according to The Daily Beast, he might be losing the internal battle to go to war.

After the Pentagon announced that they had "evidence" that Iran attacked an oil tanker in the Gulf of Oman, political analysts began to speculate it would be used as a justification for war with Iran. But apparently, Trump realized the Middle East saber-rattling doesn't play well in Middle America.

On Monday, Freeport, Illinois resident Shaquille Dukes was arrested outside of FHN Memorial Hospital with an IV attached to his arm.

The reason? A security guard accused him of "trying to leave the hospital to sell the IV equipment on eBay."

Dukes, who is African-American, has filed a racial profiling complaint with the city, insisting that this would never have happened to a white hospital patient. "I'm not just going to sit here and be complacent about what I know is an illegality," he told the Journal Standard.
