A CNN panel with host Chris Cuomo devolved into absolute chaos when he dared to ask Donald Trump’s shills if any of the president’s supporters believed governing should cease if Democrats continue their investigations.
Republican commentator David Urban said that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has two choices: to impeach Trump or move forward with the business of the people. Cuomo couldn’t understand why someone couldn’t do both since it’s what happened under former Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton.
Urban’s excuse was that “it’s very hard to compartmentalize.” Indeed, this president has a very difficult time doing his job when other things are going on, or the television is talking about him. Other presidents master the task with years of training in law, business or politics, but somehow Trump never learned the talent of multi-tasking. Urban complimented Clinton for being “extraordinary” for his ability to deal with impeachment and do his job at the same time.
Urban, however, tried to claim that this is a more partisan attack than then-Speaker Newt Gingrich’s crusade to uncover Clinton’s sex life. The claim made Cuomo chuckle.
Women for Trump creator Amy Kremer defended Trump because he was being attacked. Cuomo compared it to the 10 Benghazi hearings during former President Barack Obama’s administration that ultimately turned up nothing. Calling it a “sham” Cuomo called the investigations a waste of not only taxpayer money but time as well. Still, Obama managed to do the work America hired him to do.
“American lives were lost, Chris!” Kremer went off screaming.
“That’s right, and you guys took advantage of that and played on those lives and pretended that was your intention when your intention was to smear,” Cuomo retorted.
The panel erupted into chaos after that.
Entire CNN panel beats down Santorum for Ukraine misinformation: ‘You don’t get to decide what the facts are’
Conservative CNN contributor Rick Santorum was called out on Sunday after he seemed to be uneducated about President Donald Trump's attempt to have Ukraine investigate Joe Biden and his son.
During a panel discussion on CNN, Republican contributor Mia Love said that Trump's communication with Ukraine was not "appropriate" if he was looking for campaign help.
"There is no equivalence between Joe Biden and Hunter Biden and what this president has allegedly done," Democratic consultant Karen Finney noted. "The things that were investigated against the Bidens [were] shelved, totally debunked."
Tapper smacks Mnuchin with Trump kids’ international business deals after attack on Biden son
In a fairly contentious interview with Steve Mnuchin, CNN host Jake Tapper pointed out how Donald Trump's children -- Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric -- have been using their father's name to swing international deals after the Treasury secretary accused former Vice President Joe Biden's son of doing the same.
Mnuchin first dismissed reporting by the Washington Post and the conservative Wall Street Journal that Donald Trump was withholding Ukraine funding in an effort to get dirt on Biden and his son -- saying neither newspaper could be trusted -- he then complained to the CNN host about having to spend seven and a half minutes talking about Trump's Ukraine scandal.
Trump felt free to ask for Ukraine election interference after Mueller let him off the hook: Wired reporter Garrett Graff
On CNN's "New Day Weekend," author and commentator Garrett Graff noted that President Donald Trump's attempt to push Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden came right after former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in 2016 ended — and suggested the two were related.
"You know, Garrett, there may be some people thinking 'Gosh, we just got out of the whole scenario with the Mueller report. Now we have this again,'" said anchor Christi Paul. "Do you get a sense that there are people looking at this saying 'I think I have confidence in the 2020 election?'"
