Kellyanne Conway shut down by CNN’s Bash for insisting Democrats are responsible for immigrant child deaths

Published

on

A combative Kellyanne Conway attempted an ardent defense of President Donald Trump’s assertion that Democrats are responsible for the deaths of immigrant children only to be shut down with CNN’s Dana Bash.

Responding to questions about Trump’s Saturday tweet, Bash confronted the senior White House adviser over the president’s lack of empathy, only for Conway to attempt to shift the blame to the children’s parents and — once again — the Democrats.

“Kellyanne, I want to talk about that policy in a minute, but the idea that the president’s aides, now you’re one of them, have said that they have empathy for the deaths of children, who are coming across the border with their parents,” Bash pressed, “But the president hasn’t. The only thing he has said is something that is very political and, frankly, misleading with regard to Democrats being culpable for the deaths of children.”

As Conway attempted to shift blame and ignore Trump’s response, Bash cut her off.

“It’s also important to note that the president tweeted not just that Democrats are responsible but that they were ill before they were coming over and his own government,” Bash explained before adding “CBP has said in several statements that they tracked them and that that’s not the case.”

“I don’t like some of the Democrats using these deaths as political pawns,” Conway shot back.

“Isn’t that exactly what the president just did?” Bash insisted.

“No, the president is not doing that!” Conway snapped.

CNN’s Cuomo slams Trump advisers for attacking Fauci: ‘Why doesn’t Captain Carnage tell his sycophants to shut up?’

Published

on

On CNN Tuesday, Chris Cuomo slammed President Donald Trump's aides for attacking Dr. Anthony Fauci — and their boss for allowing it to continue despite knowing Fauci is correct.

"Trump knows Fauci is a trusted source," said Cuomo. "Given what just came out of his mouth, we have to ask why is he trying to destroy Fauci? And the answer is because Fauci keeps telling you the truth about COVID-19."

"If the president isn't behind it, why is his campaign pushing out a staffer like Stephen Moore, who is openly trying to smear Fauci's decades-long service?" said Cuomo. "The guy is supposed to be an economic analyst. What about this from Peter Navarro, another Trumper? Now he's a Fauci critic? These guys want to talk about being trustworthy and records of getting things wrong, and they work for Trump and never admit his legendary lies? And Dan Scavino, deputy chief of staff for communications, he posted this cartoon, mocking the top infectious disease specialist on his Facebook page as he calls him his colleague."

Anderson Cooper tears into Trump for lying about coronavirus death rate: ‘This is just ludicrous’

Published

on

On CNN Tuesday, anchor Anderson Cooper led his show with a searing indictment of President Donald Trump for his ongoing lies about his management of the coronavirus pandemic.

Cooper particularly took umbrage at Trump's claim, at the day's Rose Garden press conference, that "we have just about the lowest mortality rate" and only seem to have more cases because "we do tremendous testing. We have the best testing in the world."

"This is just ludicrous," said Cooper. "This is the president of the United States. More than 130,000 people dead in this country and he's continuing this ridiculous lie, it's nonsensical. It defies any belief. We shouldn't be surprised because this is what he does. This is one of president's favorite lies. The United States is not the best or close to it in deaths — it's the seventh-worst in the world. The testing doesn't discover them. According to Redfield and others, the cases we know about are probably far underestimating the actual spread of this virus."

Trump tried to create a ‘fairy tale’ of his pandemic leadership: CNN’s Acosta

Published

on

On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta broke down the significance of President Donald Trump's latest press conference.

"By and large ... what you heard the president talk about is essentially what he would have talked about had he been able to give that rally in New Hampshire last weekend," said Acosta. "He decided to have it here in the Rose Garden. When the press assembles here in the Rose Garden, we expect there to be a number of questions asked of the president. There were only three or four people called on before he raced out of here."
