Trump supporter flattened for pushing debunked Biden smear: This is what ‘happens in a banana republic’

Published

Appearing on MSNBC early Sunday morning, a supporter of Donald Trump attempted to push the debunked smear of Joe Biden and his son only to have a critic of the president explain to him that he should be outraged at Trump for once again seeking foreign interference in U.S. elections.

Running a clip of the former vice president firing back at Trump and telling reporters they need to ask the right questions, host Philip Mena asked Liberty Government Affairs founder Brian Darling what he thought of Biden pushing back.

“Hey, if I was Joe Biden I would be yelling, too,” Darling asserted. “Because this is a real scandal. The fact that Joe Biden’s son amassed $3 million working for a natural gas company in Ukraine when he has no experience in natural gas, he has no expertise in regulatory affairs in the Ukraine and what did his dad do? His dad was vice president of the United States overseeing Ukraine policy and threatened to withhold money, a billion dollars in aid to Ukraine if they didn’t fire the prosecutor that was investigating that company.”

“I would be screaming, I would be pointing my finger at President Trump because I would be angry and scared that this could end my campaign,” he added.

Given a chance to respond, Bishop Garrison of the Rainey Center for Public Policy called out Darling and Trump.

“Yeah, I think a lot of Americans would be angry as the vice president is, but I think for absolutely different reasons than what Brian just laid out,” Garrison shot back. “I think they would be very upset that the president of the United States is targeting a family member of a political opponent.”

‘This is the type of thing that happens in a banana republic,” he continued. “This is not something that happens or should happen in the United States. If prosecutors or if a political opponent was coming after any member of Trump’s family in this type of manner, he would be livid, he would be on Twitter, he would be in the news cursing and damning that person completely and totally. So for him to turn around and use this as a political tool is just beneath comment.”

Trump has been talking a big game on debates — but he hasn’t even committed to the ones they scheduled

Published

on

In recent interviews, President Donald Trump talked a big game about the presidential debates against presumptive Democratic opponent Joe Biden. The president has even called for an additional debate to happen sooner.

"The one problem I have, the debate's very late. It's at the end of September and a lot of ballots will already be cast by that time," Trump ranted in a "Fox & Friends" interview this week.

“By the time of the first presidential debate on September 29, 2020, at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, as many as eight million Americans in 16 states will have already started voting," said Rudy Giuliani who has been negotiating debates for Trump.

CNN’s Brianna Keilar explains why she battled Trump adviser: ‘You can’t just ignore BS — you have to shovel it’

Published

This Tuesday, CNN's Brianna Keilar got into a heated exchange with Trump campaign senior adviser Mercedes Schlapp, fact-checking her assertions that mail-in voting can lead to election fraud. This Wednesday, Keilar did a follow-up on the segment, saying that a coronavirus death in the U.S. is more than "2000-times likely to occur than a case of voter fraud in any type of election."

Keilar then addressed some criticism her network has received over its choice to interview Trump campaign officials when their struggles with the truth are well known.
