On Friday's New Day show on CNN, host John Berman and Alabama Republican Congressman Mo Brooks got into a heated debate over whether President Donald Trump should build a border wall as Brooks called out the liberal news network's "propaganda" in trying to downplay the amount of crime committed by illegal immigrants.
On CNN's New Day this morning, Van Jones—host of his own CNN show—commenting on controversial statements on race made by Republican congressman Steve King of Iowa, identified King as representing . . . California. Said Jones: "I'm embarrassed. I mean, I'm raising my family in California. I'm embarrassed that Californians have sent him back [to Congress.]"
On CNN's New Day, co-host Alisyn Camerota asks, regarding the partial government shutdown, "aren't Democrats to blame here as well?" She calls out Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for refusing to make a counter-offer when VP Pence asked them for one at the conclusion of a White House meeting yesterday.
On New Day, CNN political commentator Joe Lockhart says the networks should not give air live President Trump's Oval Office address this evening about the situation at the border. Instead, says Lockhart, Trump should give the networks the text in advance, "and let us decide in advance what's true."
The morning after Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI) made some vulgar comments about the need to impeach President Trump, ABC’s Good Morning America refused to cover it, but CNN’s New Day offered a welcome contrast as not only as Tlaib’s tirade covered, but it was covered heavily across the show’s three hour duration. Most notably, co-host John Berman repeatedly wondered about what the outrage would be like if a hypothetical freshmen Republican member of Congress had said the same thing during the Obama presidency.
You just know the liberal media hated it when President Trump and First Lady Melania made a Christmas visit to the troops in Iraq. So CNN went into damage control this morning, doing its best to dump disparaging cold water on the trip. On New Day, it was repeatedly mentioned that this was Trump's first visit to troops in a combat zone, with intimations it was done to deflect attention from the resignation of Jim Mattis and the withdrawal from Syria. Multiple mentions were also made of the fact that Melania wore sunglasses at night upon her return.
On Tuesday's New Day on CNN, as John Avlon hosted the show's regular "Reality Check" segment, he again demonstrated that this part of the show is more about pushing liberal spin than it is about actual fact-checking or making the audience informed as he misleadingly claimed that the Trump admnistration was not required by law to separate children from illegal immigrant parents.
On Monday's New Day, CNN legal analyst Elie Honig, speaking of President Trump's tweet in which he referred to Michael Cohen as a "rat," Honig says: "people get killed because of that . . . People have been murdered because someone said, that guy's a rat." Honig tried to cover his tracks by adding, "I'm not saying the President is trying to get Michael Cohen injured." Sure. I suppose that's why Alisyn Camerota, picking up on Honig's accusation, said: "bad things happen to cooperators in prison."
The panelists on Friday morning’s edition of CNN’s New Day program took advantage of their last chance of the week to slam their favorite target -- Donald Trump -- even going so far as to give former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart a chance to try to hammer the final nails into the Republican president’s coffin. Lockhart, who served in Democratic President Bill Clinton’s administration for two years, took obvious delight in casting Trump’s troubles in the darkest light possible by questioning if the president was ever legitimately elected.
CNN spent another segment on Monday’s New Day, mocking Trump’s pick of State Department spokesman Heather Nauert, to replace the departing U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley. Nauert used to be an anchor for Fox and Friends before joining the Trump administration in 2017 and was an ABC News correspondent before that.
In the 7:00 a.m. Eastern half-hour of CNN’s New Day, co-host Alisyn Camerota and chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin submitted that the images over the last week with migrants storming the U.S. border with Mexico, seeking to force their way (illegally) into the country illustrated that — wait for it — the U.S. does not need a border wall.
The latest liberal Chicken Little Global Warming iteration of the End of Times comes to us by way of CNN's Philip Mudd who warns that hamburgers are going to kill us.
