During a segment with CNN host Erin Burnett, contributor April Ryan delivered a righteous rant aimed at Donald Trump for sharing a video from Fox Business News that appeared to show House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D- CA) slurring.
According to Ryan, who has battled with the White Hosue — including spokesperson Sarah Sanders — Trump and his White House are engaging in propaganda by flat-out lying to the American public that knows better.
Given a chance by the host to address Trump’s video, Ryan called the president out in no uncertain terms.
“This is not Russia. We have seen propaganda video come out with Jim Acosta our own Jim Acosta,” she charged. “The White House tried to perpetrate a lie on me saying something that I never said about Sarah Huckabee Sanders. She and her father went on Fox News saying this.”
“You know, this president has a tendency to throw rocks and he throws boulders and hides his hands,” she continued. “He has to understand that when you hurl insults at people you have to look in the mirror. and sometimes when you look in the mirror it’s not so pretty.”
“He is talking about Joe Biden,” she provided as an example. “Joe Biden never said his father was born in Germany when he was born in New York. I have never seen Joe Biden write a tweet saying ‘covfefe.’ Or I’ve never seen a Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders pick up a glass of water with two hands. He has to stop the schoolyard bullying. He thinks he is bullying people into submission and it’s not working — it’s just not.”
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?'"
