‘Fake peace plan!’: CNN conservative rains hell on Trump for publicity stunt Taliban meeting announcement

Published

on

Neither of the two conservatives sitting on Sunday morning’s CNN “State of the Union” panel were pleased by President Donald Trump plan — now aborted — to invite Taliban leaders to Camp David during the same week the country will be mourning the victims of the 9/11 attack.

Sitting down with host Jake Tapper, GOP consultant Scott Jennings — who can normally be counted on to defend anything Trump does — was appalled by the timing, saying he was “angry” and that Republicans are likely furious with the president too.

However it was CNN regular Amanda Carpenter — who previously wrote speeches for Texas Se. Ted Cruz (R) — who gave voice to the anger of many who are still stunned by the Trump announcement.

“I couldn’t even imagine what the Republican reaction would have been [if President Obama would have done the same],” Carpenter exclaimed. “I share Scott’s feelings, my blood is boiling over this.”

“And I’m left wondering: what was the plan here?” she continued. “How was the Taliban going to get to U.S. soil? Was the U.SW aircraft going to ferry them over? would the U.S. military going to give them a ride? What was the purpose of this, so President Trump could announce some kind of fake peace plan the day of 9/11 without any preconditions, without a day of cease-fire?”

“What were they thinking?” she added, her voice rising. “I really want to know what the plan was before it went haywire.”

"...the people who are supposed to be in charge of the national response to the pandemic instead are escalating their attacks on doctors," she said, pointing out that up to 60,000 Americans are testing positive for the virus, each day.

"They're doing this even though they won't mandate the use of masks which are proven to save lives," she said. "They're doing this because the President is continuing to make claims that the only reason the U.S. has a surge in cases is because of an increase in testing."

Literally hours after providing reporters with a list of what an anonymous White House official called mistakes Dr. Anthony Fauci has made over the year on coronavirus, the White House turned the tables to use the veteran immunologist's words to praise President Donald Trump.

On Sunday in a statement to CNN the White House outlined "the number of times Dr. Fauci has been wrong on things."

Calling it a "new campaign of deception," CNN reported Monday morning that "the White House is trying to destroy the reputation of one of America's most respected public servants, Dr. Anthony Fauci, for telling the truth about how bad things are getting."

FAILURE: Here are 470 ways Trump failed to protect America from COVID-19

Crises have a way of sorting the good presidents from the bad.

Historians consistently rank Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt among the top three presidents for their handling of the Civil War, the Great Depression, and World War II.

By contrast, the string of catastrophes that trailed George W. Bush, from Iraq to Hurricane Katrina to his obliviousness to warning signs in the housing market before the 2008 crash guarantee that he will have a permanent place in the bottom tier of presidents.
