On CNN Wednesday, CNN analyst Dana Bash slammed President Donald Trump’s new plan to give the GOP re-nomination speech at the White House.
“I mean, I don’t even know where to start,” said Bash. “There is a law called the Hatch Act, where it says that you’re not supposed to politic from government grounds. The president is exempt from that, so it may be legal grounds for him to stand on, relatively firmly, to do this at the White House. There are questions about the aides that are working for him to do it. But let’s just talk about whether it’s appropriate.”
“I know a lot of people are going to laugh saying, appropriate, that ship sailed a long time ago. But this is different,” added Bash. “This is the president of the United States accepting a political party’s nomination for re-election, and to use the backdrop of the White House, the power of the incumbency takes the kind of meshing of the two to a whole other level, and that might have been the trial balloon to see whether it floats or bombs. And we’ll see what happens with that.”
CNN host stunned by Biden’s ‘jaw-dropping’ honesty about COVID — instead of urging Americans to ‘inject bleach’
CNN host Alisyn Camerota found herself pleasantly surprised this week when she saw President-elect Joe Biden giving Americans an honest assessment of the current state of the novel coronavirus pandemic in the United States.
After playing a clip of Biden talking about the stark public health crisis facing the country while also acknowledging the sacrifices Americans are making this Thanksgiving, Camerota said it was a remarkable contrast with the kinds of messages President Donald Trump has been sending about the pandemic.
"You almost have to reprogram your brain to hear the reality, to hear somebody, a leader, level with the American public, and say, we need to redouble our efforts," she said. "We need to recommit to the fight, we need to steel our spine, as opposed to, it's going to magically go away or we should inject bleach."
‘We’ve never had a president act more like a Russian agent’: CNN’s Cuomo slams Trump’s attacks on democracy
On CNN Wednesday, Chris Cuomo tore into President Donald Trump for his demand to "turn the election over" into a victory for him instead.
"Last time I heard a voice like that spouting nonsense like that with a screen that was lit up like that, it was Poltergeist. This is just as scary," said Cuomo. "As for all that evidence of mass voter fraud, they're nodding their heads, yes, yes, yes. Then why don't they offer some? At least 30 cases lost since Election Day, all for the same reason, conservative judges, liberal judges, conservative states, liberal states: no proof. Today, more nothing. Unsworn witnesses making claims of fraud that they suspected or largely heard about. All those Trumpers in power, think about it, all those different elections in states he lost, swing states, yet none of them came forward with anything real. What does that tell you?"
Anthony Scaramucci says there’s no chance Trump is running in 2024: ‘I know the guy’
Anthony Scaramucci, former aide to President Donald Trump, told CNN's Chris Cuomo that he doesn't think there will be another MAGA campaign in 2024.
Trump is facing a number of state and federal lawsuits when he leaves office. Even if he manages to pardon himself or secure a pardon it would still leave tax and bank fraud cases.
"I actually think on January 21st, they're going to slice his throat metaphorically and they're going to push him out to pasture as hard as possible because you have all these young Republicans that want to run for president and Mitch McConnell knows that once he's out of power he has to dispatch them very quickly," Scaramucci said "By the way, Chris, you know the president's personality. I know it very well. The minute he leaves that stage, and it is no longer about him, he's not campaigning for other people. He's not going to go to diminishing crowd sized rallies for himself. And the bloom will be off the rose, and he'll be 75 years old. So, I see this thing ending way more abruptly than other people do."
