COMBATIVE DEBATE: Trump Adviser Tells CNN Chris Cuomo He’s ‘Fake News Propaganda’ (VIDEO)
CNN finds its reputation in the cellar, and rightfully so.
One would think that given the media giant’s perception, it would work harder to cover the news more fairly. Sadly however, that’s not the case.
In a recent discussion-turned-debate, CNN’s Chris Cuomo and White House aide Sebastian Gorka went toe-to-toe.
The discussion hinged on Cuomo’s contention that the Trump administration was spinning the messaging on the terror travel ban. I advise you to watch this ENTIRE interview to understand Cuomo’s and the Left’s OBSESSION with President Trump. PRICELESS!
Below is a partial transcript of the exchange:
“There are no games…The president can call it whatever he likes because he has the constitutional authority to control whoever comes into this country, Chris. That’s his job. The Constitution, tradition, precedents, and administrative law give him that right. If he wants to call it a ban he’s the president, he’s the chief officer of this administration and he has every right to do that.”
“Right, and why wasn’t the administration just honest about it. Why have Sean Spicer and you and everybody else say ‘it’s not a ban, it’s just vetting, and you’re trying to make it sound like something it isn’t.’ The president just proved what the truth is – all this has been spin and a distraction. Why?”
Gorka fired back,
“I’m not going to fall into the trap of us being the spinmeisters when CNN is one of the greatest purveyors of fake news. The fact is it’s been the same from the beginning. From the first EO to the second EO, it’s one thing, Chris, it’s about protecting Americans. And if anybody out there has a problem with us trying to keep Americans safe they need to look in the mirror and they need to ask themselves if they are the purveyors of fake news.”
“It’s always been about who it targets…how it targets them and whether or not that will keep us safe. And you guys played games about it and said it’s not a ban. I could play you Sean Spicer right now but you know it’s true.”
“And then the president decides to be honest about it this morning. That is spin, you are the purveyor of spin because that was your message that it wasn’t a ban and it was untrue that’s why I’m asking you.”
Gorka pretty much body slams Cuomo in this pointed analysis, as he chides:
“So I guess President Obama was also a purveyor of spin with that calculation because the executive order is based upon the Obama White House analysis of the seven nations of greatest concern for immigration into America. Is he a purveyor of spin, Chris?
“Well that’s an interesting question,” Cuomo replied.
“It is, isn’t it?” Gorka then laughed.
Cuomo merely follows the leftist narrative. Fake News Propaganda.
There is no logic to his reasoning, as over 93 percent of Muslims from countries not on the list can freely travel to America.
So, it’s clear that the discussion is meant to paint President Obama as anti-Muslim. The fact is, the president and most of America are anti-terror. And Muslims bring terror.
We have reported extensively on the terror attacks of Muslims over the decade and it’s disturbing. Already this year as of this writing there have been 918 Muslim terror attacks worldwide in over 46 countries. Over 6,000 people have died this year-to-date at the hands of Islam, the religion of peace.
Yet, Cuomo argues the point further,
“The facts are not your friend because that move with the executive order from the Obama administration was about travel to those countries. It was about whose coming in and out and why. Your order is about Muslims. About targeting Muslims and keeping them out and allowing those who are not Muslims a carve-out, to come in. Very different.”
Gorka brought up the earlier point of who’s not banned.
“So if this had anything and I mean anything, to do with race or religion, why would those two nations, the most populous Muslim nation and the most populous Arab nation, not be included in the executive order? Explain that logic to me, because this is where your spin fails. This is where the fake news propaganda collapses, because if we had some dark dread ulterior motive, then those are the two first nations you would put on the list, not the seven nations the Obama White House identified as the greatest concern. So please answer that question.”
It’s up to all conservatives to know the facts of Muslim terror.
We must dispel the myths of the Left.
