CNN anchor shuts down right-wing commentator for lying on air: ‘That is not true’

Published

on

CNN anchor Ana Cabrera had to repeatedly correct a Republican strategist who was attempting to misinform the network’s audience with brazen lies about immigration.

John Thomas, who lives in California, said sanctuary cities should “suffer” by receiving asylum seekers.

“Why would they be suffering? I don’t understand. Why do you think they would be suffering?” Cabrera asked.

“Because we can’t handle it, Ana,” Thomas replied.

“Forget even the fact that I would argue that sanctuary cities have higher crime rates than nonsanctuary cities,” he said.

“That’s not true,” Cabrera interjected. “That’s not true.”

“Yes, it is,” Thomas claimed.

“There are studies that say the exact opposite,” Cabrera noted.

“I’m sorry, John, that’s not true,” she explained.

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."
