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.
‘I don’t have to do it, legally’: Trump says he can invade Iran without Congress’ permission
On Monday, CNN reported that in a new interview, President Donald Trump said that he can invade Iran without congressional approval — and that although he would "like the idea" of keeping Congress in the loop, he doesn't "legally" have to do so.
"I like the idea of keeping Congress abreast, but I wouldn't have to do that," said Trump. In response to the fact that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said he must obtain congressional approval first, Trump said, "I disagree. I think most people seem to disagree."
"I do like keeping them — they are intelligent people," added Trump. "They will come up with some thoughts. I actually learned a couple of things the other day when we had our meeting with Congress which I think were helpful to me. I do like keeping them abreast, but I don't have to do it, legally."
US foes are goading Trump because they know he’s a ‘blow-hard and full of bluster’: CNN analyst
President Donald Trump walked back from the brink of atrocities last week, from calling off a military strike against Iran to pushing back planned Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids in major American cities.
On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin told anchor Wolf Blitzer how foreign adversaries have been emboldened to challenge Trump — because for all his bombast, they know they are calling a bluff.
"I think Donald Trump is pretty well a known quantity at this point," said Toobin. "I mean, I think people around the world know he's a blowhard, knows he's full of bluster. But that's no reason to get into a war."
CNN’s Brooke Baldwin stunned that Trump fans don’t care how many women accuse him of assault
CNN's Brooke Baldwin on Monday expressed astonishment that journalist E. Jean Carroll's rape allegations against President Donald Trump haven't gotten more attention.
During a discussion with CNN's Gloria Borger, Baldwin broke down how a shocking number of women have made allegations of sexual misconduct against the president, who was also caught on camera bragging about sexually assaulting women in the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape from 2006.
