In an interview on CNN Wednesday night, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, tried to distance his client from evidence that his campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election.
In the process of defending Trump, Giuliani admitted that there may have been collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
“I never said there was no collusion between the campaign or between people in the campaign … I have not. I said the president of the United States,” Giuliani asserted.
Analysts pointed out that Giuliani had not done his client any favors by admitting that members of the Trump campaign may have worked with the Russians.
On Thursday, CNN aired a montage of all the times the president has vehemently denied that his campaign colluded with Russian agents.
“No collusion!” the president declared in multiple public appearances. “Everybody knows there was no collusion.”
The more than dozen times the president has denied collusion assembled by CNN don’t even include all the Tweets and public statements.
“Those are just the soundbites,” observed CNN host Brianna Keilar.
Condi Rice deflects Trump’s racism by saying slavery was just ‘a number of people being treated badly’
Former National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice on Sunday blamed Democrats for racism after she was asked about President Donald Trump's controversial bigoted statements.
During an interview on CNN, host Fareed Zakaria asked Rice about some of Trump's most racist statements, like telling Democratic congresswomen to "go back" where they came from. And when he said there were good people on "both sides" at a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville.
"When you hear Trump, this is a repudiation of everything you were trying to do," Zakaria pointed out.
"The president needs to be a lot more careful," Rice agreed. "Race is a very delicate and raw nerve in America. We have the birth defect of slavery, we have the birth defect of a number of people being treated badly."
Rand Paul snaps at Liz Cheney over Iran warmongering and announces plans to help her opponent
Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union" with host Jake Tapper, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) took several shots at Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) over her desire to attack Iran and her defense of departed White House adviser John Bolton.
Asked about his ongoing feud with the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, Paul said the congresswomen is out of touch when it comes to American's taste for war.
“The Iraq War, President Trump has said, was the biggest geopolitical blunder of the last generation," Paul explained. "It destabilized the Middle East and increased the strength of Iran and tipped the balance toward Iran, so really there was nothing good about the Iraq war and Dick Cheney, Liz Cheney and John Bolton still don’t get it. They are still advocating for more regime change in the Middle East.”
‘There are some women who’d beg to differ’: Watch CNN anchor’s epic response to sexism in politics
On Saturday, CNN anchor S.E. Cupp gave a passionate lecture about the sexism female politicians face during political campaigns.
The host read a quote from a "top" advisor to former Vice President Joe Biden.
“I don't know of anybody who has taken as sustained and vitriolic a negative pounding as Biden ...really the most vicious press I think anyone's experienced,” the Biden advisor told Politico.
"Come again? What's that now?" Cupp asked in disbelief.
"I think there are some women who beg to differ," she noted.
