While discussing President Trump's recent tweets about the gun debate on New Day Thursday morning, CNN political analyst Joshua Green suggested that the tweets serve as proof that the President is "flailing" and "doesn't know what he's doing."
The Wednesday CNN town hall promoting gun bans and moderated by Jake Tapper was arguably a train wreck from the beginning. Between a student saying Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) reminded him of the shooter and shouts of ‘murderer’ at NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch, it was out of control. But in the wee hours of Thursday morning, things got worse for the anti-gun network when the local Florida ABC affiliate WPLG-TV reported that CNN had been planting questions.
The second portion of CNN’s town hall/mob promoting gun control on Wednesday night featured Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch and, on cue, it was brutally hostile towards Loesch. Along with repeatedly being heckled by students and other attendees as a “murderer,” Stoneman Douglas student Emma Gonzalez questioned Loesch’s motherhood.
On Tuesday, CNN's Chris Cuomo retweeted a Monday tweet by Cody Davis, who claimed that "I was able to buy an AR-15 in five minutes," even though "I’m 20 and my ID is expired." The young man's account of what he supposedly did 20 months ago indicates that he never genuinely began the gun-purchasing process. One might forgive Cuomo for a careless retweet; but once sharp criticism poured in, he showed that he bought into Davis's false narrative.
Wednesday's CNN town hall to promote gun control and gun grabbing was off the rails from the very start. So-called moderator Jake Tapper sat back as the wild crowd targeted Republican Senator Marco Rubio with boos and jeers for basically just being there. The wildest moment allowed by Tapper was when Parkland, Florida student Cameron Kasky smeared the Senator by equating him to the shooter that killed 17 of his classmates.
Afternoon CNN Newsroom anchor Brooke Baldwin has gained a reputation of being a liberal journalist, but Wednesday saw Baldwin take her activism to another level by brutally harassing Florida Republican State Representative Matt Caldwell for not being willing to “consider” an assault weapons ban.
CNN proved today that if you are a politician with an “R” next to your name, you are single-handedly responsible for the mass shooting epidemic in this country, no matter what your stance on gun rights is. On Wolf Blitzer’s February 21 show this afternoon, the anchor repeatedly grilled moderate Republican, Chris Latvala from Florida, over “when” his party was going to “ban assault weapons,” asking the question over and over again.
The liberal media's current infatuation with teenage activists ripping into the National Rifle Association extends to letting them smear gun-rights activists with no correction. This presents a serious issue for tonight's CNN "Students Demand Action" town hall meeting. Are the teenagers going to be able to say anything without a check on their facts or their civility? On Monday morning, CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota took no exception to activist David Hogg insisting the NRA were "child murderers."
On Tuesday's New Day, CNN host Alisyn Camerota not only did her part to spread misinformation about how easy it is to purchase an AR-15, but she also defended liberal activist Cameron Kasky's decision to demonize the NRA as a "terrorist organization," suggesting that "calling out the NRA" in such a way "might be effective." She also got into an unusually heated debate with conservative CNN contributor Jack Kingston as she badgered and repeatedly showed derision toward the former Republican congressman's conservative views on guns.
In a recent New York Times op-ed, Thomas Friedman sounded the alarm against President Trump and issued a "code red", saying that "the biggest threat to the integrity of our democracy today is in the Oval Office." During an appearance on CNN's New Day Wednesday morning, Friedman doubled down, repeatedly referring to the President as a "disturbed person."
On Tuesday's Early Start, there was one more example of the contempt that journalists have for the NRA as CNN anchor Dave Briggs praised gun control activist Cameron Kasky as "an eloquent young man" after a clip of the liberal student activist pushing for more gun control in which he in part ranted that the NRA is a "terrorist organization" that gives "blood money" to politicians.
In the past month liberal journalists have blamed “domestic terrorist” enabling Republicans for the Parkland, Florida school shooting tragedy, depicted Donald Trump as an “ethnic cleansing” “dictator” and decried Fox News as a “racist outfit” that is a “noxious stain on American society.” On the other hand, the media fell in love with North Korea’s “first sister” of Kim Jong-un as they contrasted the Winter Olympics appearance of the “prim” “political princess” against “bully” Mike Pence.
