CNN panel devolves into a shouting match after Trump apologist refuses to acknowledge Russia hacking

Published

on

On Tuesday, a panel hosted by CNN’s Brianna Keilar went off the rails after Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s senior advisor and Trump’s son-in-law downplayed Russia interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“Does he get it?” Keilar asked.

He gets it, but he’s not being truthful about it. The reality is that Mueller came out and said there was a sweeping and systemic interference in the election campaign and we have heard nothing from the president of the United States condemning it,” Columnist Mehdi Hasan said.

“I don’t think he’s downplaying what the Russians did. I don’t think he said it didn’t have any impact. I didn’t hear Jared say that” Trump apologist David Urban said.

Kushner noted that a few facebook ads by Russia had little impact. However, Russia spent more than $1.25 million each month on Facebook ads. 

The panel ripped him for missing the point.

“I think Donald Trump has done a much better job of sewing discord by talking about building a wall and scapegoating LGBTQ people,” commentator Karen Finney said. “The Russians are very good at exploiting existing fractures. They’re not particularly good at creating new ones. So this president has done a very good job of also further exploiting and dividing those fractures.”

“Don’t kill them, but hit them hard,” he said as he walked through a group of his colleagues.

“I remember shaking,” Marx told the Seattle Times of the experience filming the patrol from her office window. “Why not say, ‘Restrain them, calmly’?”

Chris Loftis, a spokesperson for the patrol, gave the Times a statement trying to explain away the comment as poor “word choice,” but it was not reassuring:
