‘Complete nonsense’: CNN’s Daniel Dale blows up Trump’s lie that California admitted to widespread voter fraud

Published

on

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.”

“He said a million ballots or something like that,” said Burnett.

“Yeah, he said that settlement showed — it was California admitting that a million people had voted illegally. That’s not what that settlement said. That settlement was about more than a million inactive voters who were still on the rolls. It said nothing at all about any of those people actually voting illegally. They were basically dormant registrations that California agreed to get rid of. California made no admission about voter fraud at all. So this was completely inaccurate.”

However, CNN's John Avlon on Monday warned against believing that Trump's tantrums are part of some grand campaign strategy, and should instead be understood as a series of impulsive outbursts.

A CNN reporter faced intolerance over her face mask and ethnicity at beaches in the South over the weekend.

CNN's Natasha Chen said that she was interviewing the mayor of Tybee Island on Saturday when she was jeered for wearing a face covering.

"Somebody saw us and the mayor and I were both wearing masks and they yelled at us to take them off," Chen recalled on Sunday. "Somebody claimed that sunlight is the best disinfectant."

In a subsequent report, Chen revealed that she had also been harassed while working in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

"Within the past hour, there was a person who was not happy with what we were covering," Chen said. "We've been talking to people -- who have all been really nice, by the way -- talking to us about how they're social distancing, what they're seeing with the crowds on the beach, but this person didn't like it."
