‘Not legitimately elected’: CNN guest makes stunning conclusion about latest Trump scandals

Published

on

Former Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart reached a stunning conclusion after summarizing the latest revelations about President Donald Trump.

While appearing on CNN, Lockhart said that everything we’ve learned about Russian interference in the 2016 election and the president’s actions to cover up past affairs with mistresses at the very end of the campaign suggest that the president’s legitimacy should be in doubt.

“A case has been built this week that the president was not legitimately elected,” he said. “If you look at the Russia stuff and the campaign finance stuff, and the fact that 40,000 votes going the other way over three states [would have swung the election]… we don’t know. And that’s why this is important.”

Lockhart’s conclusion that Trump may not have been legitimately elected came after he watched a clip of former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen saying that the president knew that he was doing something wrong when he authorized Cohen to make hush-money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels in 2016.

After watching the clip, CNN host John Berman commented that Cohen seemed to doing everything in his power to implicate the president in a felony.

“That is literally a checklist for how a campaign finance violation becomes criminal,” he said.

Trump is ‘asleep at the switch’ in his bunker while America needs a unifying voice: CNN’s Keith Boykin

Published

on

On CNN Monday, former Bill Clinton staffer and CNN commentator Keith Boykin laid out the extent of President Donald Trump's failure in a moment of national crisis.

"Keith, do you feel this time at all may be different as far as a real outcome?" asked anchor Brooke Baldwin.

"I definitely feel this is different," said Boykin. "Think about the conditions that we're in right now. We have 41 million people who don't have jobs. You have 100,000 people who have died from the coronavirus pandemic, disproportionally black and brown people, and people outraged about the shooting and killing and murders of black men and women and the George Floyd incident and Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, where people have no place to go, nothing to do. No school or jobs to go to. No distractions. It is not like the typical protest in the past that could go back to work or class. They could spend all summer just being upset unless there is a substantive change."

Trump is ‘capable of reading’ a unifying message — but it’s doubtful he’ll mean it: Atlanta mayor

Published

on

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Monday expressed little confidence that President Donald Trump could unify the nation at a time when the United States faces a triple threat of a recession, a pandemic, and civil unrest.

During an interview on CNN, host Alisyn Camerota asked Bottoms about actions Trump could possibly take to calm nerves and bring the country together.

"What about the debate that we are told is going on in the White House, as to whether or not the president should at this moment make some sort of national statement and call for unity?" she asked. "Would you like to see that?"

Racist cops, COVID-19 and unemployment are sending black Americans into ‘despair’: Charles Blow

Published

on

The multiple crises hitting the United States at the moment are hitting the black community particularly hard, and New York Times columnist Charles Blow said on Monday that it's sending people into deep despair.

While appearing on CNN, Blow said that the nationwide protests that have erupted in the wake of George Floyd's killing last week were about much more than the death of just one man.

"You add on top of that all the other conditions, which you spoke before, about this happening in the middle of a pandemic," he said. "Everybody's at home. 40 million people have filed for unemployment. They don't know where their next check is coming from... The idea that [unemployment] is disproportionately affecting black people, that COVID is disproportionately affecting black people that, police brutality is disproportionately affecting black people, it's all part of the despair."
