CNN Anchors Have Finally Had It With Donald Trump's Lies

Donald Trump has benefitted from plenty of free and favorable media, particularly from CNN. But he may have finally pushed his luck too far.

 

Trump had promised that his appearance at the new Trump hotel in Washington, D.C., on Friday would include a major statement about President Barack Obamas birth status.

 

The real estate mogul teased the appearance that morning, fueling speculation that he might finally admit he had been wrong to question the presidents U.S. citizenship. There was even talk that Trump might apologize.

 

It didnt happen. After speaking for a few minutes about his new hotel and letting a series of veterans praise his candidacy, Trump said, Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. I finished it. I finished it. You know what I mean. President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Period. Now we all want to get back to making America strong and great again.

 

The statement, which lasted about 30 seconds, contained two separate lies.

 

Clinton didnt start the birther controversy. Trump, who as recently as this week has refused to say he believed Obama was born in the U.S., didnt end it.

 

And CNNs panelists made sure their viewers knew it.

 

This was John Berman: Hillary Clinton and her campaign never pushed it. And this was his co-anchor, Kate Bolduan: Its false. Donald Trump in 2011, he made this his signature issue. No one has gone as far as Donald Trump on the birther issue.

 

Jake Tapper ― who, to his credit, has been among the most aggressive about calling out Trumps lies ― was blunt: Those are two factually false statements. ... She and her campaign never, never started the birther issue. Second, Donald Trump did not end the birther issue.

 

Tapper also noted that the birther issue had a racial element, because it was an effort to delegitimize the nations first African-American president.

 

John King, who remembered interviewing Trump on the day Obama released his birth certificate, was nearly speechless.

 

After four or five years of leading a fraudulent and reckless campaign against the legitimacy of the United States president, you got, what, about six or seven words from Donald Trump? he said.

 

And none of those words, Berman noted, were Im sorry, I apologize. Or explaining why he ever questioned the birth status of the United States president.

 

On social media, other media figures reacted with a similar mix of incredulity and condemnation.

 

This response may have partly reflected a realization that Trump had manipulated the media once again, by getting the networks to break away from normal coverage in order to show some pretty routine campaign speeches ― and promote his new hotel along the way. After promising a big reveal, Trump began his appearance by bragging about his new hotel. He then let a parade of veterans sing his political praises, turning the event into a free advertisement.

 

We got played, CNN panelists admitted on air.

 

Whatever the reason, the reaction to Trumps birther statement recalled the harsh commentary following Trumps attacks on federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel (the judge of Mexican heritage presiding over a lawsuit against Trump University) and the Khan family (the Muslim parents of a soldier killed in Iraq).

 

Trumps statements in those cases so clearly betrayed racial bias that they fueled lengthy political controversy, and ended up hurting his campaign. Fridays statement on the birther controversy was so egregiously dishonest that it may have a similar effect.

Trump is playing the media like a bunch of fools. They created him and now they can't control him. They deserve what they get.

A lot of truth to that, they have allowed his lies to go unchecked. With Trump, media should allow Trump 40% coverage, and media 60% coverage on his lies. Fair & Balanced.

Whichever network squares off on him for his non stop lying will be called a "dishonest" network. This is extremely hilarious.

I think media's big fear is being sued.

I could control him. I'd sit his ass in a chair and every time he lied he'd be riding a TASER. Then he'd be water boarded. The interview would quickly become an interrogation KGB style.

In the sense the media was pushing him to beat other Republican candidates, yeah, you're probably right. Apparently he's a little smarter than they gave credit as, like you say, he's making them look like fools. Couple that with the fact that Hillary, when she can manage to get something out of her mouth besides a cough, says something some completely ridiculous....you're going to have a tight race.

He'd be so scared that you'd try and suck his cock...would anything you would want to know.

Uneducated rednecks...the ONLY thing keeping the gop alive

They get angry when you say stuff like that, because they know it's true. Deep down, they know nobody likes them. They know they're not too bright. Us normal people reject them con hillbillies.

All politically inclined people should read the nonfiction book Deer Hunting with Jesus: Dispatches from America's Class War by Joe Bageant. This is a memoir by a redneck that escaped his upbringing, got an education, and went into the world as a journalist. He has great sympathy for his roots, so he returned home and tried to figure out why poor, uneducated whites would vote for Republicans who hold them in contempt and pass legislation against their interests. An essential read.
