The day after his acquittal in the Senate, President Trump went on TV and lashed out at his political enemies on live TV in a speech that CNN’s Brianna Keilar described as “unscripted, vindictive, at times profane, angry, rambling response to his impeachment acquittal.”
Keiler turned to CNN contributor Gloria Borger and asked her thoughts on the “enemies list” Trump rattled off during his speech “on the heels of a number of Republicans voting to acquit him, citing that they think he’s learned his lesson, which clearly he has not.”
According to Borger, Trump’s speech started out well enough, but then “immediately turned into an avalanche of grievance against everybody.”
“It was vindictive … it was full of revenge, it was mean spirited, it was poisonous, it was spiteful,” Borger said. “And it gave you a real look into the way he views the world” regarding the people who oppose him versus the people who support him.
“So I think it was quite a remarkable view to the President’s psyche here,’ she continued, adding that in contrast, former president Bill Clinton apologized to the American people and said how profoundly sorry he was for putting them through the ordeal.
“[Trump] did none of that,” Borger said.
CNN’s Tapper fires back at White House’s Meadows for personal attack about mask-wearing
During a long and very contentious interview with White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, CNN "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper snapped back at Donald Trump's righthand man for trying to mock him for not wearing a mask during the interview where Meadows was not in the studio.
After grilling Meadows for agreeing to designate Vice President Mike Pence as an "essential worker" so he can continue to campaign for Donald Trump after his office became a COVID-19 hotspot, the CNN host pressed Meadows why the president continues to refuse to wear a mask and doesn't demand it of his rallygoers.
‘Absolute farce’: Trump White House bashed for declaring COVID-exposed Pence an ‘essential worker’ so he can campaign
Appearing on CNN early Sunday morning, an emergency room doctor from Michigan expressed disgust with the White House for labeling Vice President Mike Pence as an "essential worker" so he can continue to campaign for Donald Trump despite the vice president's office being rocked by a COVID-19 outbreak.
Following news the Pence Chief of Staff Marc Short and senior adviser Marty Obst among others in the Vice President's office have tested positive for novel coronavirus, the White House announced that the vice president would maintain his hectic schedule in the waning days before the election.
Democratic strategist rains hell on Trump apologist for lying that Biden would destroy energy industry
On CNN Saturday, Republican strategist Brian Robinson tried to claim Joe Biden's pledge to "transition" from oil is a sign he will harm the energy industry — and was promptly swatted down by Democratic counterpart Maria Cardona.
"A gaffe in politics is saying what you really think," said Robinson. "He wants to have a liberal agenda on energy issues. And he's got supportive comments of the Green New Deal on his website. So I do think that it's something we can pin on Democrats, of their lurch to the left of an issue that directly impacts jobs, directly impacts quality of life and the cost of living in our communities."
