GOP lawmaker flails wildly and rants about Hillary Clinton when asked about Trump’s attacks on McCain

Published

on

A Republican lawmaker flailed wildly during a CNN interview in which he was simply asked whether he thought it was appropriate to attack a dead senator.

After being asked by CNN’s John Berman to comment on Trump’s latest attacks on the late Sen. John McCain, Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) went off on an angry rant about Hillary Clinton funding opposition research into the president that McCain would subsequently pass on to the FBI.

“I think what’s come to light in most recent days is, of course, the use of the discredited dossier and it is being placed in McCain’s hands by Democratic Party operatives by Christopher Steele, who is being paid by Hillary Clinton…” Turner began.

At this point, Berman interrupted him and pointed out that his answer had nothing to do with his original question.

Nevertheless, Turner persisted.

“I’m saying over the recent days the attempts to use John McCain to legitimize the discredited dossier for the purposes of initiating an investigation against the president has come to light in testimony!” Turner fumed.

“Congressman, again, none of this gets to my question,” Berman interjected. “Does it justify, congressman, the president of the United States at a White House-funded event in Ohio, in your home state, talking about the funeral of a human being, let alone a war hero like John McCain who passed away in August?”

Turner admitted that he was “saddened” that Trump talked about McCain that way — and then continued ranting about the Steele dossier.

Mitch McConnell busted on CNN as the ‘ringmaster’ leaving the door open for more Russian election interference

Published

on

On Tuesday, CNN's John Avlon broke down how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is every bit the obstacle to secure and safe elections as President Donald Trump is.

"There should be things that transcend petty politics, and towards the top of that list is stopping foreign powers from interfering in our elections," said Avlon, playing a clip of former special counsel Robert Mueller warning about the dangers. "Robert Mueller's warning is again, falling on willfully deaf ears. We know that foreign powers continue to try to meddle in our elections. Trump's FBI director and Director of National Intelligence have made this crystal clear."

CNN panel destroys Trump’s mass arrest threat of millions as a wildly unrealistic Orlando rally stunt

Published

on

The panel on CNN's New Day cast a jaundiced eye at a threat Donald Trump made on Monday night where he threatened mass arrests of millions of immigrant families as part of an ICE operation.

On Twitter, the president wrote: "Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in. Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people."

According to one panelist on CNN, the president's threat was timed as a political stunt, with the contributor Jackie Kucinich calling it "rally-fodder" before his Orlando campaign kickoff.

CNN’s Cuomo demands Scott Jennings admit if he’ll ever be tired of Trump lying — but he refuses to say

Published

on

On Monday, CNN's Chris Cuomo clashed with Republican adviser Scott Jennings over President Donald Trump's decision to fire pollsters that showed him losing to former Vice President Joe Biden.

"I don't want to get too in the weeds for people especially this far out," said Cuomo. "But the word of one of the reasons that there's some resonance and relevance of the internal polls that the president lied to the American people about in terms of what they say is his lying, Scott, that it's a problem. It's a problem for him across the country. It makes people wonder whether or not they can count on his word. When you see a scenario like this one, don't believe the polls, they were your own polls, Scott, from inside the campaign. How damaging is that to this president?"
