‘Getting the truth is irrelevant!’ Rick Santorum goes down in flames trying to defend Trump on CNN

Published

on

Trump defender Rick Santorum went down in flames during a CNN debate on Wednesday that culminated in him admitting that the truth about President Donald Trump’s attempt to extort the Ukrainian government really doesn’t matter.

During a feisty debate with Democratic strategist Paul Begala, Santorum said that it would be a waste of time to call witnesses such as former national security adviser John Bolton because it would not change the fact that Trump is getting acquitted by the Republican-majority Senate.

“Most Republicans feel the way I feel,” he said. “Even if John Bolton’s statement is true, even if there’s more information that proves the president withheld aid, it’s — what Professor Dershowitz and Robert Ray said the other night, even if it’s true, it’s not impeachable.”

Begala, however, argued that getting Bolton to testify was necessary to get the full truth about the president’s actions.

“Swear him under oath,” he said. “You get all the evidence, you get all the facts, you get all the documents, you get all the testimony and that gets you to the truth!”

Santorum, however, disagreed.

“Getting to the truth is irrelevant, certainly for the price that it would inflict upon the Senate to have this further testimony come forward!” he said.

During his "Reality Check" segment on CNN's "New Day," contributor John Avlon cast a jaundiced eye the appointment of Vice President Mike Pence by Donald Trump to be the administration's point man combating the coronavirus pandemic -- pointing out the veep's history when it comes to health matters is highly suspect.

With the president reportedly admitting that he selected Pence to head the task force because he "doesn't have anything else to do," Avlon began with the age-old advice: "Hope for the best, prepare for the worst."

CDC employees ‘demoralized’ over Trump interference as they grapple with coronavirus crisis: CNN

Published

on

Following a report from CNN Dr. Sanjay Guputa that the U.S. is woefully unprepared to handle a massive outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, "New Day" host John Berman relayed that staffers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have become "demoralized" by the White House response that won't allow them to do their jobs.

The concerned Gupta began by describing problems that will soon become apparent by pointing out, "One is that we may not have enough personal protective gear for our health care workers, and then if they're potentially exposed, they're out of the system. they really can't take care of patients for a while. Who's going to backstop that? Two is this idea of surge capacity. You know, look, we've got about a million hospital beds in the united states. We don't run a hospital system in the United States that is built on redundancy, we have a lot of extra redundancy built into it -- so what happens to these patients?"
