CNN’s April Ryan on Monday delivered a brutal assessment of the state of President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign on the day before he’s set to officially launch his reelection effort.
During a discussion about pollsters getting fired from the Trump campaign in the wake of brutal polling numbers getting leaked, Ryan said the president can’t be happy to see so much news coverage of polls showing him losing badly to former Vice President Joe Biden.
“Democratic polls are saying that Joe Biden would beat him if the election were to happen today,” she said. “They’re also saying any Democrat would beat him if the election were today! This does not bode well for the Trump brand, it does not bode well for his presidency. He is going in looking like a loser.”
CNN’s Gloria Borger speculated that the president’s pollsters may have actually leaked the brutal polling data themselves as a way to get his attention and force him to seriously come to grips with how vulnerable he is.
“What he’s upset about is that the polls that were leaked showed that he wasn’t winning,” she said. “As a result, they’re ‘fake polls.’ But I think you also have to take into consideration that the pollsters probably felt the one way to communicate with him is to put it in the public eye, so he will pay attention to these polls and perhaps then take them seriously.”

‘Melania was born where?’: Ana Navarro unleashes on Trump hypocrisy of ‘go back’ to where you’re from tweet
In an epic rant on CNN Sunday, Republican consultant Ana Navarro unleashed on President Donald Trump for his racist tweets about the new freshmen Democratic women of color in Congress.
First, Navarro shamed members of her own party for not having the backbone to stand up to the president.
"Republicans have neglected their responsibility when it comes to Donald Trump three years now and I don’t think that will change because of this horrible tweet but frankly Republicans should be speaking out against this, calling it what it is. Call a spade a spade. Call a racist a racist. The problem is that they’ve enabled this racist for far too long, they’ve justified this racist for far too long. They kissed his ring far too long."
Democratic strategist says Trump couldn’t even pass a citizenship test for his own country
President Donald Trump's understanding of America is so shallow that a CNN analyst offered an on-air "bet" that we would fail the written test given that is required for immigrants to gain citizenship.
CNN's Fredricka Whitfield interviewed Democratic strategist Maria Cardona, who moved to American from Colombia when she was a two-year-old child and subsequently gained citizenship
"The blame is at the feet of this president, who has allowed this kind of talk because now he is using it himself, and he is allowing each and every racist and white supremacist in this country -- and people who feel misogynistic against women who can’t understand why women have these powers now and don’t think that they should -- he is giving them permission to come out of the woodwork and behave the way that we all learned we should not behave," Cardona explained.
Ex-GOP Rep. Mia Love blames child suicides on ‘both sides’ engaging in Trump’s racist tweets
Former Republican Rep. Mia Love followed others in her party blaming Democratic officials of color for President Donald Trump's racist comments.
During a CNN interview with Fredricka Whitfield, Love said that it was incumbent on the women of color to "take the high road."
"I think the American people, including me, we’re getting so tired of the back and forth," Love said of Trump's call for the women to go back where they came from. "I just want to say we have to remember what their jobs are."
She went on to tell the four women to do their jobs instead of focusing on Twitter battles. It's ironic given the number of times the president tweets on a day-to-day basis.
