The DNC-aligned CNN continued its gushing over Joe Biden’s declared victory on Friday’s New Day, however bitterly whined that President Trump was ruining their partisan celebration. Co-host Alisyn Camerota complained: “This ought to be a second of nationwide delight. However President Trump is stealing that second of nationwide delight for us, that we did one thing so nicely, as a result of he is tainting it.”
So CNN and the leftist media didn’t attempt to taint the outcomes of the 2016 presidential election with their panic-ridden coverage? They didn’t admit simply this month that they have been nonetheless “suffering from collective PTSD?” The distinction in protection of the 2 elections is simply hypocritical and startling.
CNN political analyst Toluse Olorunnipa continued to bash the Trump nonetheless: “The one downside is that we’ve got a President who decides that as a result of he misplaced the election, he needs to forged doubt on the complete course of.” The Democratic Information Community has continued its laughable call for unity, even whereas Olorunnipa hurled insults on the President: “…he can not abdomen the concept he’ll be a one-term President and be put down in historical past as a loser, to a sure extent, one thing that he has fought in opposition to for the higher a part of his time on Earth.” It’s truthfully arduous to have unity when CNN continues to trash Trump and half the nation that supported him.
This in fact was ignored as co-host John Berman continued to take a position on whether or not Trump was planning a coup or a con on the American individuals. CNN world affairs analyst Susan Glasser remarked: “Look, Trump has arrange this example, the place reality is in some way an act of opposition to the President.”
Olorunnipa saved up her assaults: “He isn’t prone to truly concede defeat.…However to go away in a huff and vowing to get revenge on the entire enemies that he thinks has been conspiring in opposition to him since he took workplace….He has the entire grievances that he must construct up a four-year marketing campaign of vengeance and attempting to run once more in 4 years.”
It will be good if CNN might present details and knowledge, somewhat than their opinions and fixed assaults. Sadly, it’s doubtless that they are going to proceed to advertise Biden whereas persevering with to bash President Trump for the rest of his time period.
A transcript of the November 13th Protection is included beneath:
6:28 AM ET
ALISYN CAMEROTA: Okay, John, becoming a member of us now, we’ve got CNN world affairs analyst, Susan Glasser, she’s a employees author for the New Yorker. And CNN political analyst, Toluse Olorunnipa, a White Home reporter at “The Washington Publish.” Nice to see each of you. So on a bigger scale, final evening, the Division of Homeland Safety, the precise unit tasked with determining if there’s any voting irregularities, if there’s any fraud, put out a hanging assertion. Partially, it learn, the November third election was essentially the most safe in American historical past. There isn’t any proof that any voting system deleted or misplaced votes, modified votes, or was in any approach compromised. Toluse, this ought to be a proud second in U.S. Historical past. This ought to be a second of nationwide delight. However President Trump is stealing that second of nationwide delight for us, that we did one thing so nicely, as a result of he is tainting it. Your ideas?
TOLUSE OLORUNNIPA [CNN Political Analyst]: Yeah, tens of 1000’s of Individuals labored extremely arduous to make this election free and honest in the course of a pandemic. The most important problem for election officers and generations. And so they rose to the duty, all the best way from the nationwide degree, together with our nationwide safety officers, who needed to struggle in opposition to overseas interference and overseas makes an attempt to intervene and alter the votes of Individuals. They labored arduous. Native election officers labored arduous to place this election collectively. Individuals who have been simply volunteers working at polls and individuals who counted these votes late into the useless of the evening. They have been working very arduous. And what we did have was a free and honest election. The one downside is that we’ve got a President who decides that as a result of he misplaced the election, he needs to forged doubt on the total course of. He thinks that in states that he received, all the pieces was effective, however in states the place he misplaced, there was apparent fraud. And you must query why the President would try this, different than the truth that he can not abdomen the concept he’ll be a one-term President and be put down in historical past as a loser, to a sure extent, one thing that he has fought in opposition to for the higher a part of his time on Earth. So, t’s clear that the President is being reputeduated on this assertion, which says that every one of his claims about voter fraud haven’t any foundation. He is been going to court docket. He isn’t been capable of show any of his prices. It has been over per week, and there is no proof to again up what the President is saying. And it is clear that this was a free and honest election and sadly for him, he misplaced.
JOHN BERMAN: He was being repudiated by an workplace within the federal authorities, of which he’s at the highest of. It is his personal people who find themselves saying to the world that the President is incorrect. And Chris Krebs, Reuters is reporting that he expects to be fired now for talking the reality. And he is going approach out of his method to repudiate the President. He is retweeting statements like this, please do not retweet wild and baseless claims about voting machines, even when they’re made by the President! These theories have been debunked many occasions, together with by DHS. Susan, you’ve been wanting into what’s been happening with the President, making calls throughout D.C. making calls to the neatest individuals about what he is doing. Whether or not it is a coup, as you say, or a con. Survey says?
SUSAN GLASSER [CNN Global Affairs Analyst]: Nicely, modestly reassuringly, I’d say, extra con than coup, however horrible, horrible for our democracy. That is the underside line, John. Look, Trump has arrange this state of affairs, the place reality is in some way an act of opposition to the President, whether or not coming from his personal authorities or Republican celebration officers, who up to now have been afraid of acknowledging the actuality. Privately, they’re doing so. And never — to me, one of many most tough issues we have seen, proper, we have actually had a state of affairs the place they’re performing as if they’re in official opposition, the election outcomes, however privately reassuring journalists like me and others, no, no, no, do not fear, it is effective, we’re simply giving him time. I feel it is one of the crucial reckless weeks in a reckless presidency.
CAMEROTA: I imply, because the pandemic, as John says, stampedes throughout this nation. Because the metaphor that we have been utilizing this week is that jumbo jets of Individuals, three to 4 jumbo jets a day are falling out of the sky and killing Individuals. If we noticed it that approach, it might be extra dramatic than, I suppose we have gotten used to individuals dying alone in ICUs. And the President is MIA, we have not heard from him. Are your sourcing telling you that the following time we hear from him that it will likely be with a declaration of a 2024 Presidential run?
OLORUNNIPA: The President is pondering about his political future and he is potential run in 4 years. He isn’t prone to truly concede defeat. He is extra prone to clearly depart the White Home by January twentieth. However to go away in a huff and vowing to get revenge on all of the enemies that he thinks has been conspiring in opposition to him since he took workplace. He’s being going in opposition to the deep state; he’s been attacking the media. He says that large tech and large cash are in opposition to him. He has the entire grievances that he must construct up a four-year marketing campaign of vengeance and attempting to run once more in 4 years. Now, we do know President is already 74 years outdated. If he have been to run once more in 4 years, he can be pushing 80. He can be attempting to turn out to be the oldest President in historical past, even older than Joe Biden. So there are questions on whether or not his well being would permit him to run once more, however I would not be shocked if we did hear the President, somewhat than giving a concession, gave a defiant marketing campaign announcement saying that he was going to run if 4 years, though he sees himself leaving the White Home in matter of months.
CAMEROTA: Toluse, Susan, thanks each very a lot for your entire reporting.
