Watch CNN’s Erin Burnett flatten a Trump-lover for claiming ‘the wall’ will bring Americans security

Published

on

CNN’s Erin Burnett had no patience Tuesday for President Donald Trump’s informal economic advisor throwing out fake facts and false equivalencies during the show.

Moore tried to say that Trump shouldn’t be afraid to shut down the government because he is correct that the United States needs border security and must have his wall. That was when Burnett cut in.

“I interject again, just to make the point because I’m not going to let that go. Border security and a wall are not necessarily the same thing. I know your job is to try to conflate it but I just can’t let it go,” she said.

“Erin, I promise, every single political rally that Donald Trump had from the day he first started running for president, he said, ‘I’m going to build the wall,'” Moore responded.

“And Mexico was going to pay for it,” Urban Radio’s April Ryan cut in.

“If Donald Trump is known for anything, it’s building the wall,” Moore said.

“And Mexico would pay for it,” Ryan said again.

Sadly, for Moore, however, Trump saying something over and over about building the wall doesn’t make it true that the wall is about border security.

‘I don’t have to do it, legally’: Trump says he can invade Iran without Congress’ permission

Published

on

On Monday, CNN reported that in a new interview, President Donald Trump said that he can invade Iran without congressional approval — and that although he would "like the idea" of keeping Congress in the loop, he doesn't "legally" have to do so.

"I like the idea of keeping Congress abreast, but I wouldn't have to do that," said Trump. In response to the fact that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said he must obtain congressional approval first, Trump said, "I disagree. I think most people seem to disagree."

"I do like keeping them — they are intelligent people," added Trump. "They will come up with some thoughts. I actually learned a couple of things the other day when we had our meeting with Congress which I think were helpful to me. I do like keeping them abreast, but I don't have to do it, legally."

US foes are goading Trump because they know he’s a ‘blow-hard and full of bluster’: CNN analyst

Published

on

President Donald Trump walked back from the brink of atrocities last week, from calling off a military strike against Iran to pushing back planned Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids in major American cities.

On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin told anchor Wolf Blitzer how foreign adversaries have been emboldened to challenge Trump — because for all his bombast, they know they are calling a bluff.

"I think Donald Trump is pretty well a known quantity at this point," said Toobin. "I mean, I think people around the world know he's a blowhard, knows he's full of bluster. But that's no reason to get into a war."

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
