‘Sleazy and inappropriate’: CNN’s Jake Tapper rips Trump for fundraising off of State of the Union address

Published

on

On Tuesday, CNN’s Jake Tapper ripped President Donald Trump for using his State of the Union address to fundraise for his 2020 campaign. Tapper suggested the move was “sleazy” and “inappropriate.”

“We’re going to live broadcast a list of all supporters who donate before the president’s State of the Union address. And when President Trump finishes his speech we’ll hand him an official printed list,” the campaign website stated.

“He is fundraising off of the State of the Union. Is it smart campaigning?” Tapper asked former Congresswoman Mia Love (R-UT.)

“I think he should focus on what has to happen. Stop trying to figure out what’s going to be to his advantage,” Love said.

She then explained that Trump should stay out of the border wall fight and do his job as president to either pass or veto the bill.

“Really right now the choice is we either stick with Pelosi or stick with the president. The president should be out of this. Speaker Pelosi, and all of these people should get together and say we’ll put a deal together and the president is responsible to either sign it or veto it.”

After the buses never showed up, however, Trump supporters claimed that the bus company was part of a "deep state" conspiracy aimed at silencing their voices.

A Fox News chyron underlined a major lie by White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham.

She still hasn't given an official press briefing, but Grisham made one of her frequent appearances on "Fox & Friends" to celebrate a cease-fire negotiated Thursday by Vice President Mike Pence that's already been broken.

"The president has an obligation to look out for the troops and look out for the country," Grisham said, justifying President Donald Trump's decision to remove troops from northern Syria and abandoned Kurdish allies to ethnic cleansing by Turkey.

"When (Turkish president Recep Tayyip) Erdo?an made it clear he was going to invade, the president acted decisively to pull our military out of the way," Grisham said. "He sent a delegation over to get a cease-fire. That takes time."

Former US defense secretary James Mattis said he was honored to be the "world's most overrated general" in a swipe at his former boss Donald Trump who insulted him earlier this week.

At a gala charity dinner in New York Thursday evening, Mattis told diners he had now "achieved greatness."

"I'm not just an overrated general. I am the greatest, the world's most overrated," he said.

"I'm honored to be considered that by Donald Trump because he also called Meryl Streep an overrated actress," he said.

"So I guess I'm the Meryl Streep of generals, and frankly that sounds pretty good to me," he said to laughter and applause at the annual Alfred E Smith Memorial Foundation dinner.
