CNN host uses Fox News doctor’s own words against him after he accuses Biden of taking amphetamine

President Donald Trump and his allies seem to realize that they’ve dug themselves a hole in attacking former Vice President Joe Biden as mentally unfit. With expectations so low, a Biden win in the first debates are almost assured, even with a Fox News host.

In a discussion Tuesday, Trump began to pivot away from his non-stop advertising attacking Biden’s cognitive abilities and instead claim Biden is a “professional” who knows what he’s doing.

“Maybe that would work if the president himself had not been saying this about Biden on repeat for the entirety of the campaign,” said CNN host Brianna Keilar.

She showed a series of videos with Trump blasting Biden as “not all there” and “he doesn’t know he’s alive.”

“It’s totally baseless,” said Keilar. “And now one week to the first debate president Trump, who is the most prominent purveyor of conspiracy theories in America is floating this one about Joe Biden.”

She played the video from Trump speaking to an Ohio audience saying that Biden will get a “shot” or some kind of amphetamine that will make him smarter. It’s why Trump is calling for a drug test, claiming that he too would take one.

A drug test could also tell a lot about Trump’s health and the drugs he’s taking if he concedes to actually giving one.

“Let’s get this straight: Trump has been baselessly claiming that Biden is ‘not with it’ for months now,” she explained. “Now he’s so in doubt about why Biden is so ‘with it’ that he’s covering all his bases, I guess. He’s saying if you think Biden seems normal, it’s because it’s drug-induced? This has no basis in fact. He’s just making stuff up. But it’s designed to make you wonder, to creep into your head and stick because that’s how conspiracy theories take hold. He’s planting a seed and his state-run news channel and its on-staff doctor is watering the hell out of it.”

She showed a clip of Fox News Dr. Marc Siegel asking why Trump would be talking about drug tests before a debate. While many would assume it was because Trump was the one thinking about doing drugs to boost his energy after a series of lackluster or “sedated” appearances.

Keilor noted that Dr. Siegel is paid by Fox News not to deliver factual information to viewers, but to make things up on television.

He’ll “weaponize his medical credentials against a presidential candidate,” she said. It was only late in the interview that he confessed that he’s never examined Biden and doesn’t have any idea what “condition” Biden could have that would confirm his lies.

MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle: The markets finally realized the economic crisis is linked to the health crisis

Published

on

MSNBC market expert Stephanie Ruhle told Brian Williams on Wednesday that the reason Americans saw the stock market fall this week is that they have finally realized that things aren't getting any better.

Williams asked if the numbers this week are different from normal pre-election years.

"This is quite different," said Ruhle. "The markets have woken up to the fact that this health crisis is directly linked to the economic crisis. The markets can't thrive when we don't have a national plan to deal with the coronavirus. And you look at the GDP, you know that tomorrow, you led the show with it, the president is going to say, 'We're back, baby! With the greatest economy ever.' That's not the case. We have been seeing improvements. We are on the road to recovery. But even if we get 30 percent, 35 percent GDP, which would be positive, it's far from saying we're back."

Brett Kavanaugh revised his Wisconsin ruling after Vermont official’s demands — but it still contains the lies

Published

on

Supreme Court Justice revised his Wisconsin opinion after a Vermont official complained that he misrepresented the way the state dealt with the election amid the pandemic. The problem, however, is that his corrections only cleaned up the sloppy language.

While it no longer appears like a high school mock trial assignment, it still lies about the example he gave in the Vermont details.
