CNN’s S.E. Cupp lashed out at Democratic presidential candidates on Saturday for campaigning for Democratic votes with progressive messages, instead of using right-wing policies to appeal to voters like herself.
During her opening rant, Cupp complained about the “bold proposals” coming from Democrats.
Specifically, Cupp whined about Democrats supporting women’s rights, government health care, free college and a solution to Trump’s concentration camps.
“Who stood up on that stage this week and attempted to reach any disaffected Trump voters?” she complained. “Moderates? Independents? I guess in the Democratic Party, those folks don’t matter. They’re not important, they don’t count.”
Cupp assumed the majority of the population shares her Republican views.
“Here’s the deal, telling a majority of voters that they’re wrong has to be one of the dumbest strategies I’ve ever encountered,” she claimed.
“In fact, the winner of both debates might have been Donald Trump,” Cupp argued.
Trump’s ‘fake news” claims are no longer working and it’s ‘another nail in the impeachment inquiry’: CNN’s April Ryan
Appearing on CNN's "New Day" early Sunday morning, contributor April Ryan said that recent polling showing the public wants Donald Trump impeached is a sign that his old tricks are no longer working.
Speaking with host Victor Blackwell, Ryan said that it is not good news that polling supporting impeachment is holding firm as the president tries to dismiss his bevy of latest scandals including his quid pro quo phone call with the president of Ukraine and his now-aborted plan to hold the G7 at one of his golf resorts.
"It's not good news for the president at all," Ryan began. "These polls are not only staying steady, they are consistent with other polls. A slight majority of Americans want this impeachment inquiry. And when you get to things where we understand, you know, this is tit for tat and quid pro quo as [acting chief of staff Mick] Mulvaney was saying, people understand this."
Watch Jill Stein go off the rails when CNN host asks her about Moscow dinner with Putin
On Saturday, center-right CNN host Michael Smerconish invited 2016 Green Party candidate Jill Stein on air to discuss Hillary Clinton's characterization of her as a Russian asset. But under the slightest pushback, Stein derailed the conversation with a stream of false equivalence and dodges.
"Do you think that she's trying to draw a nefarious inference from that photograph we've an seen so many times of the dinner that you attended at which President Putin was present?" asked Smerconish. "I think that Gen. Flynn was somebody else at the table. Is that what's driving her, as far as you know?"
CNN contributor goes to bat for Hillary Clinton in battle with Tulsi Gabbard
On CNN Saturday, commentator and Spectrum News reporter Errol Louis suggested that former Secretary of State and 2016 presidential nominee Hillary Clinton had a point in her criticism of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI).
"Errol, this general narrative about Congresswoman Gabbard is not new, right?" asked anchor Victor Blackwell. "She hit back against her critics at the debate this week, those who said that she's used Russian talking points, criticized her for meeting with Assad a couple of years ago. The question I have is, why? Why would Secretary Clinton go as far as she did to suggest that the Russians are grooming her? That suggests some interactivity here."
