Jake Tapper catches Trump lying about his ‘highest ever’ poll numbers: ‘That’s not remotely true at all’

Published

on

CNN’s Jake Tapper on Tuesday called out President Donald Trump and the White House for spreading misinformation about the impeachment inquiry.

Following a morning of testimony from Jennifer Williams and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, Trump claimed that “Republicans are killing it” in the impeachment hearings. And he said that his approval polls were at record highs.

“That’s not remotely true at all,” Tapper explained before checking in with correspondent Kaitlan Collins, who reported on reaction from the White House.

“Kaitlan, bottom half of the quote from the White House press secretary, she said Vindman and Williams testified that the president didn’t commit any crime?” Tapper asked after Collins read the statement.

Collins double-checked her notes.

“Both witnesses testified the transcript they released of that late July call was accurate and nothing President Trump has done or said amounts to bribery or any other crime,” Collin said, reading the White House remarks.

“She saying that they said that?” Tapper said incredulously.

“Yes,” Collins replied.

“They didn’t say that,” the CNN host objected. “They didn’t say that at all.”

In fact, the witnesses testified that Trump made inappropriate demands for Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son.

BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women

Published

on

The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.

The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.

"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.

Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has also been associated with Harvard Law for five decades, was asked about Dershowitz's argument during an interview with Chris Hayes.
