CNN’s Baldwin and Setmayer bury ‘gutless’ Trump for boast about crowd size when confronted with gunshot victims

Published

on

Reacting to a video of Donald Trump bragging in an El Paso hospital about the crowds he draws while visiting survivors of a mass shooting at a local Walmart, CNN host Brooke Baldwin, and regular Tara Setmayer did nothing to disguise their disgust with the president with Baldwin bluntly calling Trump “gutless.”

After a terse introduction about the viral video of Trump’s boasts that is being universally derided, the CNN host was joined by conservative Setmayer who appeared furious.

“In the past four days, the president has attacked or insulted at least 15 people or groups on Twitter or using the microphone. He couldn’t stop himself from lodging insults at 35,000 feet on Twitter against the former vice president, ripping media coverage, turning the attention back to himself,” Baldwin began.

“Listen, I know this presidency breaks every norm in the book,” she continued. “This isn’t about breaking with presidential behavior. This is just wrong. This is gutless. If I don’t continue to call it out, then we are normalizing this kind of behavior — we’re better than this.”

“What a petty, small, insecure person,” Setmayer chimed in. “He never ceases to amaze me at how low he’ll go to feed his ego. This is malignant Narcissism 101.”

“Here he is in a hospital where people were gunned down, people are recovering from a massacre, partially because of rhetoric that he spewed out of his own mouth that this shooter repeated and posted on the internet,” she continued. “It was controversial for him to be there in the first place in El Paso. It was my understanding that there were some victims that didn’t want to see him, could anybody blame them?”

“Look at the way this man behaves, this obsession he has with crowd size is just something that is — it’s not normal, it’s dysfunctional,” she raged. “This is not how a well-adjusted adult behaves. what is he overcompensating for? Bragging about his crowd size while he’s in the office?”

“When you’re the most powerful man in the world, a lot of things come at you and you just take it,” she added. “You don’t sit there and go on Twitter and attack people, attack your political opponents.”

Published

Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan will give up their royal titles and public funding as part of a settlement with the Queen to start a new life away from the British monarchy.

The historic announcement from Buckingham Palace on Saturday follows more than a week of intense private talks aimed at managing the fallout of the globetrotting couple's shock resignation from front-line royal duties.

It means Queen Elizabeth II's grandson Harry and his American TV actress wife Meghan will stop using the titles "royal highness" -- the same fate that befell his late mother Princess Diana after her divorce from Prince Charles in 1996.

Murkowski explained she would likely vote with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on an initial vote on whether to allow witnesses. However, she left the door open to voting for witnesses after House impeachment managers make their opening case.

"I don't know what more we need until I have been given the base case," she said. "We will have that opportunity to say 'yes' or 'no' ... and if we say 'yes,' the floor is open."

Overall, Murkowski said it was important for the trial to been viewed as fair.

Published

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham was blasted on Saturday over the confusion resulting from her refusal to hold daily press briefings.

CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy was alarmed that Grisham's assistant, Hogan Gidley, was forcing reporters to refer to his remarks as coming from a "sources close to the President's legal team."
