On Thursday’s edition of CNN’s “OutFront,” political analyst Gloria Borger suggested that President Donald Trump may just decide to cut his losses on the Ukraine scandal and blame his attorney Rudy Giuliani for any wrongdoing.
“I think at this point maybe Trump needs a fall guy,” said Borger. “Rudy Giuliani is the fall guy here. He’s the guy who was meddling in everything. Everybody who testified seemed to make it very clear that Rudy Giuliani was doing this at the direction of the president of the United States. I think Gordon Sondland said that, what, 20 times yesterday at the direction of the president, so it’s clear Rudy Giuliani wasn’t freelancing, but maybe the president feels that he needs him right now.”
“The Republicans are clearly ready to throw him under the bus and there’s no doubt about that, and it could still happen at a certain point, but for now, I think in the back of the president’s mind is surely what happened when he threw Michael Cohen under the bus, which is that Michael Cohen flipped on him, if you recall.”
Trump didn’t fill request for ventilators when a Democrat called for help — but he did after a Republican called: Congresswoman
President Donald Trump praised Sen. Corey Gardner (R-CO) during his Wednesday press conference for his request for 100 ventilators, which Trump said he sent right away. He overflowed with praise for Gardner, and promised, "they'll be there very shortly."
The problem, however, is that the request has been coming from Democrats as Colorado has been searching for more. It was only when Gardner called that Colorado got ventilators, Rep. Diane DeGette (D-CO) told CNN Wednesday evening.
Andrew Cuomo threatens to bail on CNN interview when his brother shows vintage photo of governor in bellbottoms
Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) appeared to feign anger during a CNN interview Wednesday in which his brother, Christopher Cuomo, showed a vintage photo of their family with the elder brother clad in bellbottoms, a rhinestone belt and an unfortunate attempt at an afro.
The younger Cuomo is still suffering from the effects of coronavirus, appearing redfaced and wiping his brow. However, his brother noted that he seemed more animated than he has in days.
"Now I've seen you referred to a little bit recently as the 'Love Gov' and I'm wondering if that's making you a little soft on the president, that you don't want to really criticize him, because you need him and now's not a time for fighting," said the younger Cuomo. "But don't you have to balance that with calling him out if he's doing things that you don't think are great for the people of your state to be hearing and experiencing? Love Gov?"
‘Complete nonsense’: CNN’s Daniel Dale blows up Trump’s lie that California admitted to widespread voter fraud
On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," fact-checker Daniel Dale dismantled President Donald Trump's claim, repeated at the day's coronavirus press conference, that a lawsuit proved a million people voted illegally in California.
"He had a voter fraud commission that was disbanded without producing any such evidence," Dale told anchor Erin Burnett. "This is complete nonsense ... the specific lie was about a California settlement with a conservative group called Judicial Watch."
