CNN Commentator Julia Ioffe Says, President Trump ‘Has Radicalized so Many More People Than ISIS ever Did’
THIS IS WHY CNN IS CALLED FAKE NEWS …
If you ever wondered why CNN is referred to as fake news, you need to look no further than the following story. CNN Commentator Julia Ioffe, who also is a correspondent for GQ and writes for The Washington Post, said in a segment on CNN’s “The Lead,” to the disbelief of other guests and to GOP officials on social media, that “this president has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.” UNREAL. This is the kind of crap that CNN allows to be put on air. This is what CNN passes off as fact as some kind of debate. Of course it makes no difference that the Pittsburgh synagogue killer, he hated Trump. Even the Daily Beast wrote, the ‘Pittsburgh Synagogue Suspect Robert Bowers Hated Trump—for Not Hating Jews’.
A note to Julie Ioffe and the Leftist moonbats at CNN, Daniel Pearl and James Foley was asked for comment regarding this foolish comment, passed off as fact, sadly he was unavailable for comment. So were the following HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE on infinitum.
They would compare radical Islam and terrorism to Trump and his supporters. Make no mistake about it America, the MSM is talking about you. They not only hate Trump, they hate you. Welcome to the insane LEFT and their willingness to say anything, because they have nothing to say.
A CNN commentator said Monday that President Trump is worse than the Islamic State, though she promptly took the words back when people began responding on social media.
Julia Ioffe, who also is a correspondent for GQ and writes for The Washington Post, said in a segment on CNN’s “The Lead,” to the disbelief of other guests and to GOP officials on social media, that “this president has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.”
She elaborated that Mr. Trump’s radicalization tools are “the way he talks, the way he allows, and winks and nods.”
On the segment, fellow panelists David Urban and Mona Charen quickly responded, with Mr. Urban verbally rolling his eyes and saying over her explanation that “that’s impossible to say that.”
BTW.apology not accepted. The days of this divisive, over the top nonsense need to come to an end. A once proud news organization, CNN is now a joke.
FAKE NEWS, FAKE POLLS …
A recent CNN poll shows that Democrats have a 10 point lead over Republicans in a generic ballot test, 52% of likely voters to 42%. But wait a minute, has the liberal MSM leaned nothing from the 2016 elections and all of the bogus polling? However, what should we expect from CNN Fake News? Let’s take a look at the methodology of the poll. So in a poll where CNN states that Democrats have a 10% point lead, they sampled 34% Democrats and only 25% Republicans. Really CNN? Then there was a so-called 40% Independent.
Democrats maintain a wide lead over Republicans in the race for control of the House of Representatives, a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS finds, including a 10-point lead among those most likely to turn out this November.
In a generic ballot test, 52% of likely voters back the Democratic candidate for House of Representatives in their district while 42% back the Republican. Among all registered voters, Democrats hold a 12-point margin over the GOP, suggesting preferences have not shifted much since an August CNN Poll, which did not include an assessment of likely voters.
MORE ON METHODOLOGY
A total of 1,003 adults were interviewed by telephone nationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones. Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish. Among the entire sample, 34% described themselves as Democrats, 25% described themselves as Republicans, and 40% described themselves as independents or members of another party.
Didn’t CNN already dump their former polling firm ORC after the 2016 elections because of the BS polling and data? No one trusts fake news and fake polling. It does not appear that much has changed.
Most of the headlines about CNN’s new public-opinion poll this week focused on President Donald Trump’s 38 percent approval rating. But there was also this: After a 2016 election in which most of the data underestimated Trump’s chances, CNN has a new pollster.
The new poll was conducted by SSRS, a major survey-research company, instead of CNN’s old partner, ORC International. CNN confirmed this week that its partnership with ORC, which included co-branding of the poll, has ended after more than a decade.
The switch comes at a perilous moment for both the media and the polling industry. Attacked by the president as “fake news” for results he disagrees with, pollsters and the news organizations they work with inspire little confidence from the public. A Marist-McClatchy poll — yes, a poll about polling — back in March found that only 7 percent of Americans have a great deal of trust in polls, and just 29 percent said they have a good amount of trust in polls.
ED SCHULTZ PASSES AWAY …
Today it comes as a surprise that longtime broadcaster Ed Schultz has died at the age if 64. Media reports state that he dies of “natural causes” as Schultz passed quietly early morning on July 5 at his home in Washington, D.C. I can’t say I agreed with much Ed Schultz had to say, although I can agree that passing away at the age of 64 is far too young. After his show was canceled at MSNBC Schultz joined TT America to produce “The News with Ed Schultz.” As reported at the Washington Free Beacon, Schultz and his new show were criticized by many of his fellow progressives for taking a new positive tone towards both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Republican President Donald Trump. None more evident where I never agreed more with Ed Schultz as he ripped Hillary Clinton a new one for not having the common decency to give her concession speech, but instead prolonging the BS by sending out her campaign chair Podesta instead. Schultz stated, this is the same campaign that was questing Trump to how he would handle the outcome of the election.”
Schultz rips Hillary Clinton for not speaking on election night
Ed Schultz, the longtime broadcaster who churned up the Fargo-Moorhead area airwaves before moving into the national spotlight as a progressive firebrand, died of natural causes Thursday, July 5, at his home in Washington, D.C.
Schultz, the host of “The News With Ed Schultz” on RT America, was 64.
“We at RT America are sad to announce the passing of Edward Andrew Schultz. Ed Schultz passed quietly early morning on July 5 at his home in Washington, D.C. This announcement comes as a shock to all of us here at RT America,” the network said in a statement.
Schultz never shied away from controversy. If anything, he sought it out.
He was a man of contrasts. A political chameleon with a driving ambition. [...]
In 2004, Schultz took his radio show nationwide. Then in 2009, he moved to national television, becoming a prime-time progressive voice on MSNBC through 2015, when his show was dropped.
He started his job at RT America, formerly called Russia Today, in early 2016, hosting the half-hour show “The News With Ed Schultz.”
Schultz, who was critical of Russian President Vladimir Putin while at MSNBC, said when he took the RT job that he didn’t anticipate any problems. “Nobody is going to tell Ed Schultz what to say,” he told The Forum.
Liberal MSM Loses Their Mind Upon Justice Kennedy Retirement … MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, ‘Hell to Pay’ If Democrats Don’t Block Anthony Kennedy Replacement (VIDEO)
THE LIBERAL MSM LOSING THEIR MINDS WITH JUSTICE KENNEDY RETIREMENT ANNOUNCEMENT …
Hmm, so why would the liberal MSM become so insane by the announcement of the retirement of Justice Kennedy? Do they think the Supreme Court is supposed to be more powerful than the Legislative or Executive branches of government? Yesterday, following the retirement announcement of Justice Kennedy, the LEFT-wing Democrat media lost their minds. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews stated, that if Democrats “don’t use everything they’ve got, if they don’t play hardball, I think they’re through.” Matthews went on to say, “If they allow Trump to fill the Supreme Court with another conservative who will not share Justice Anthony Kennedy’s views on social issues like marriage quality, then the Democratic leadership “will have hell to pay.” The LEFT, Democrats and the liberal MSM can kick, scream, whine and throw all the temper tantrums they want. The fact of the matter is they have no power to stop it. Honestly, who thinks that had Hillary Clinton won the 2016 Presidential election, Heaven forbid, that she would have appointed a Justice comparable to that of Scalia? As for Kennedy, he might not have even considered stepping down.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Wednesday said that the Senate would hold a vote on Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s successor this fall.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews did not mince words in reacting to Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s surprise retirement announcement on Wednesday.
“I don’t think the Democrats should allow meetings to occur with Trump’s nominee to fill this vacancy by Justice Kennedy,” Matthews said. “I think they have to fight eye for an eye for what happened in ‘16 when the Republicans, led by Mitch McConnell, refused to even consider or even meet with Merrick Garland.”
If the Democratic leadership under Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer “allows this to go forward,” Matthews continued, they are going to have a “huge problem with the Democratic base.” He pointed to incumbent Congressman Joe Crowley’s loss the night before to young progressive Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as a sign of just how vulnerable the establishment wing of the Democratic Party is right now.
“There is no way politically the Democratic base will stand for any kind of hearings or vote for a Trump nominee before the election,” he added. “We’ve got an election in four and half months. There’s no reason to consider a replacement on the Supreme Court in that time.” Matthews said McConnell has “no right” to bring a nominee up for a vote after what he did to Merrick Garland two years ago.
Who finds this comical that the LEFT is going crazy over a Ronald Reagan SCOTUS appointee?
BILL CLINTON SAID WHAT?
As reported at the NTK Network, in an interview with the PBS NewsHour former president Bill Clinton chimed in on the #MeToo movement and made some shocking, and strikingly tone-deaf, comments about sexual harassment and assault, including his opinion that “what you can do to someone against their will” has changed.” HUH? No Mr. President, it was never considered acceptable to sexually harass, assault, or break into the presidential humidor. The problem was that everyone gave you a pass on all of your actions from your days in Arkansas to be President. Even today the #MeToo movement has not gone after you for your actions. Is the Clinton being tone deaf or did the MSM create the silence?
President Bill Clinton’s new interview with PBS NewsHour, which aired last week, featured some shocking, and strikingly tone-deaf, comments from the former president about sexual harassment and assault, including his opinion that “what you can do to someone against their will” has changed.
Clinton’s comments seem to suggest that he believes there was a time in which doing anything against someone’s will was acceptable or normal.
Clinton also defended ousted Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), who resigned from the U.S. Senate amid sexual harassment allegations. Clinton said, as part of his comments on Franken, that “maybe I’m just an old-fashioned person.”
