CNN anti-Trump lie BUSTED on air!

On Sunday, CNN propagandist Dana Bash interviewed John Bel Edwards, the governor of Louisiana.  Addressing Trump’s recent visit to Baton Rouge, she opened with this:

So, um, Donald Trump and Mike Pence came down to Baton Rouge on Friday. You dismissed the visit as a photo op and you said you wished that Donald Trump would make a donation to a relief organization instead. We did, by the way, check with the campaign and they said Trump made a $100,000 donation to the Greenwell Springs Baptist Church where he visited. But, uh, here’s what your fellow Democrat, former Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu said about the visit.

Hold on!  (I’ll get to Landrieu’s comments in a second.)

I heard what the governor said, and Bash’s portrayal of his words was completely inaccurate.  Some might say Bash engaged in sloppy reporting.  But it wasn’t.  We’re well past sloppy reporting in America (though sloppy reporting would be bad enough).  I have no choice but to assume that it was an intentional misrepresentation of the governor’s statement.

After Bash’s distortion of the governor’s message prior to Trump’s visit, CNN cut to a clip of Landrieu expressing thanks to Trump for coming to the state and drawing attention to the dire situation from massive flooding.  After the clip, Bash asked Edwards the following:

So, governor, why is she wrong?

Hold on!  (I’ll get to Edwards’s reply in a second.)

Why was Landrieu’s appreciation for Trump’s visit wrong?!  Edwards never suggested that it was.  Bash’s determination to put a particular spin on Trump’s visit to Louisiana was utterly transparent.  Do these leftists have no shame?  Do they not know how idiotic they look?

(Probably not.  Probably not.  And they probably wouldn’t care, anyway.)

Edwards replied:

She’s not. But you mischaracterized what I said. I didn’t dismiss his trip as a photo op. Before he came down, I said we welcome him here and we want him to be helpful and we hope it didn’t turn into a mere photo op. So you got the story backwards.

I think the governor of Louisiana just expressed what should be the sound bite of the century: “You got the story backwards.”

If you imagine all the situations when the media reported on domestic and international matters of great importance where the you-got-the-story-backwards truth would apply, you would likely be occupied for the rest of your life and still not have identified every situation.

Backwards Bash then asked Edwards if Trump’s visit was helpful.  Edwards stated that it was, as was his lengthy phone call with Governor Pence where Pence expressed “sincere and genuine” interest and a desire to be of service.

Like the rest of her colleagues at CNN, Dana Bash is a clueless useful idiot leftist non-thinking tool.  How these fools live with themselves is anyone’s guess.

And as long as we’re on the subject of CNN, during a Trump rally in Virginia this weekend, when CNN reporters came into the room, the crowd shouted: “Do your job!” over and over again.  They didn’t surround the reporters, scream obscenities at them, try to block their passage, spit on them, throw things at them, punch them, beat them, kick them, or otherwise threaten their well-being.  As compared to leftists who have been attacking Trump supporters across the country (here, here, and here).

Grown-ups vs children in the bodies of adults.

Watch the whole thing for yourself:
