‘Shameless hypocrisy’: CNN anchor rips GOP for carrying Trump’s water after criticizing Obama and Bill Clinton

Published

on

CNN host Bianna Golodryga was filling in for Kate Bolduan Thursday morning when a panel discussion turned to talk about the Republican Party carrying President Donald Trump’s water.

“It just continues to be a long line of intimidation that we have seen from the president, and really not following the basic structure that our government was founded upon,” said political analyst Mark Preston. “The separation of powers, the dignity that is supposed to come with the office, the moral obligation we have not only for our own citizens but around the world. He’s thrown it all out the window.”

He noted that Republicans have been saying for months that it should all be thrown to the American people to see what they say. “I don’t know anything else is going to matter at this point,” he said.

Speaking to the Republican on the panel, Golodryga said that she is “old enough to remember when the world almost blew up after President Obama commented on Hillary Clinton’s character, when she was under investigation, he was giving an interview. Obviously, when her husband President Clinton met alone for a few minutes on a tarmac with Loretta Lynch. Now Republicans seem not to be bothered at all. How do you characterize this as anything other than shameless hypocrisy?”

Republican political commentator Doug Heye described it as nothing more than politics 101.

“If you’re a Republican member of Congress and speak out against the president, you know you may get a tweet like the one you just read towards the former chief of staff,” he said.

‘Stop ignoring facts for political advantage’: CNN’s Cuomo tears into Trump’s refusal to lead on coronavirus

Published

on

On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," Chris Cuomo — still battling his own bout with COVID-19 — laid into President Donald Trump's lack of leadership throughout the crisis.

"Stop ignoring the facts for political advantage. Get real. The past is over," said Cuomo. "There can be no more letting politics reinforce our worst instincts. We need to build on our best instincts. And that said, what I'm asking you all to do now, the man at the top refuses to change."

He displayed a clip of Trump being confronted at the day's press conference, by his February claim that cases would soon be down to zero. "Well, the cases really didn't build up for awhile, but you have to understand, I'm a cheerleader for this country," said Trump in the clip. "I don't want to create havoc and shock and everything else. I'm not going to go out and start screaming, this could happen, this could happen."

‘He’s continuing to lie’: Anderson Cooper slams Trump’s two-faced attack on mail-in voting

Published

On CNN Tuesday, anchor Anderson Cooper tore into President Donald Trump's attacks on mail-in voting.

"The president also today continued to spread falsehoods about voter fraud as a reason not to have wider vote-by-mail efforts in the general election," said Cooper. "Many Wisconsin voters are having to stand in line to vote today because the two separate court decisions by the state and U.S. Supreme Court prevented Wisconsin from moving its election day, also extending the deadline to receive mail-in ballots. Never mind the hypocrisy, pointing to the president, he himself voted by mail-in ballot. This is what he said."
