Jessica Denson, a former Trump campaign official who is suing to have the nondisclosure agreement she signed voided so she can talk publicly about abuse she received, on Friday delivered a blistering denunciation of the man she once believed should be the leader of the free world.
When asked by CNN’s Alisyn Camerota what she was hoping to accomplish with her lawsuit to overturn her NDA, Denson did not hold back on slamming the culture of corruption that surrounds President Donald Trump.
“These NDAs are extremely dangerous,” she said. “I think that we are in a very dangerous time in our country and I think we need all hands on deck to confront the oppression and the lies that are coming out of [the man] who is supposed to be the leader of the free world.”
She then said that Trump supporters should be the angriest people at all of the promises the president has broken to bring ethics back to Washington, D.C.
“I think the supporters of this campaign should be among the most outraged, that they have been taken for fools and used,” she said. “These NDAs say that someone who signed them will have a lifetime of allegiance to everything related to Trump. That if they dare to do anything but praise and be a sycophant for this president, that their very livelihood will be threatened. This is un-American, this is unconstitutional.”

Republicans are rushing to retire in part because ‘they hate’ having to defend Trump’s tweets: WaPo reporter
Rep. Peter King (R-NY) on Monday announced that he would not be running for Congress again in 2020, making him the 17th House Republican to announce his retirement within the last year alone.
While there are several reasons for all these retirements, Washington Post reporter Rachel Bade told CNN's John King that one reason is the sheer exhaustion of having to constantly defend President Donald Trump.
"You can't overstate how much Republicans hate having to answer for the president's controversial tweets," she explained.
Bade then said that Rep. Paul Mitchell (R-MI) told her that he decided to hang it up after the president delivered racist attacks on Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) over the summer.
‘It’s not a game show’: Soledad O’Brien reams CNN host for fretting over impeachment TV ratings
Soledad O'Brien, a former CNN host, slammed the network over the weekend for what she referred to as "Cillizza-level inanity," referring to contributor Chris Cillizza.
In a Sunday segment on CNN's Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter wondered about the ratings for the "first episode" of the public impeachment hearings.
"I hate to talk this way," Stelter said. "Will the Democrats put on a powerful first episode? Will they convince people to keep watching?"
"Why is CNN so stupid about important shit?" O'Brien wrote on Twitter. "This is Cillizza-level inanity. Brian should be ashamed of himself."
CNN’s Avlon warns ‘poisonous polarization’ is destroying America: ‘E Pluribus Unum’ has become ‘Us Against Them’
On Veterans Day, CNN fact-checker John Avlon took the opportunity to warn of the dangerous levels of polarization in American politics.
"November 11th was chosen because it was the day World War I ended. A century later, it’s a good time to reflect on a good bit of political wisdom that’s been lost: the thought that partisanship ought to end at the water’s edge," said Avlon. "Today partisanship doesn’t end anywhere. Dividing families, schools, churches, houses. It’s a prime driver of the overall polarization that’s weakening our political and social bonds. And driving bitter cultural divides. Separating us into tribes."
