Trump has thrown a lot of cabinet members under the bus

Published

on

CNN’s Brooke Baldwin noted on Friday that Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has now joined the ranks of the many cabinet members President Donald Trump has thrown under the bus.

“Here we go again, when a member of the president’s own cabinet says X and the president says Y,” said Baldwin, cutting to a clip of Trump disowning DeVos’s proposal to zero out funding for the Special Olympics. “This isn’t the first time President Trump has countermanded his own members of the cabinet. Here’s a quick look at some other examples.”

“Just last night, he said his administration will protect Americans with pre-existing conditions,” she said, “even though his own Justice Department is arguing for eliminating those very protections right now in court.”

“He also said his Fed chair didn’t know what he was doing when it came to interest rates saying he didn’t have a quote/unquote, feel for the markets,” Baldwin went on. “He criticized then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson for engaging with North Korea, calling it a waste of time — before engaging with North Korea months later.”

Trump fought “Secretary of Defense Mattis when he unilaterally decided to pull troops from Syria,” Baldwin added. “And let’s not forget the very public shaming of his then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his crucial role in the whole Russia investigation where President Trump said he should never have appointed him in the first place.”

On Thursday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," correspondent Jim Sciutto broke down a key takeaway from the impeachment hearings.

"We are one year away — less than a year away from the next election, three years after Russia, with consequence, interfered, meddled in the 2016 election," said Sciutto. "One thing is clear from everybody who testified, the president of the United States never expressed any interest in defending the U.S. against that kind of interference. What he did, he was interested in a whole lot of other stuff that undermines that goal of defending U.S. elections from Russian interference, one of which Fiona Hill highlighted there, presenting an alternate explanation, a false one it was Ukraine that somehow hacked the DNC server, not Russia."

President Donald Trump's key CNN supporter, David Urban got into it with every person on the panel Thursday when he attempted to spin Fiona Hill's testimony.

The key Trump talking point is to cite a Politico article that has been debunked by American national intelligence and the testimony of the experts that have appeared under oath to the House Intelligence Committee.

As host CNN John King noted from the testimony, Hill and diplomat David Holmes are "critical" for making the case of Trump's corruption.

"Republicans are going to argue this is Trump being Trump, he was working outside the system," King said. "'Maybe you question Rudy Giuliani, but he wanted his guy's hands on the policy. You may not like it. Maybe it got ugly but it's not an impeachable offense.' That's where the Republicans are going to get us."
