CNN hosted a town hall in New Hampshire featuring the disgusting, vile, former president Trump, who hopes to retake the White House. The majority of the audience consisted of mostly white, doughy MAGAts who voted for the Orange Ass in 2020 and some ‘undecided’ voters who wanted to waste their time listening to the same crap/different day this disgusting, vile person had to say.
More to follow but here is a quick wrap-up of CNN’s epic fail:
Here are the highlights, if you can call them that:
- Trump would pardon “many” of those convicted for crimes related to the January 6 insurrection – a brutal attack which he repeatedly downplayed.
- Despite a jury’s finding yesterday that Trump was civilly liable for sexual abuse and defamation, the former president denied knowing advice columnist E Jean Carroll, whose lawsuit led to the judgment.
- Progressive Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said CNN hosting the town hall was a mistake.
- Collins pressed Trump on whether or not he would sign a national abortion ban, but he would not say either way.
- The former president remained cagey about supporting Ukraine against Russia, instead insisting he could stop their war in “24 hours”.
Now For the Details:
Trump demurs on supporting Ukraine:
“I don’t think in terms of winning and losing, I think in terms of getting it settled so we stop killing all these people,” Trump said.
Asked whether he wants Russia or Ukraine to win, Trump replied, “I want everybody to stop dying,” before implying he could end the war as soon as he returned to the White House.
“Twenty-four hours, I’ll have it done,” Trump said.
Claim: TFG said he never asked GA to find him 11,780 votes.
Fact: His conversation was taped and part of Fani Willis’ investigation:
Trump falsely claimed that pro-choice Democrats want to “kill the baby” after they are born, an assertion that went unchecked in the CNN town hall.
The former president also suggested abortion rights groups want doctors to be able to “execute” babies. This false and inflammatory claim was a common refrain of the former president during the last election and has no basis in fact.
Fact: Infanticide is illegal in ALL states. This is an outright lie that his moronic KKKult continues to repeat.
Trump repeatedly dodged questions about the point at which he would ban abortion during pregnancy, deflecting by pointing to his record reshaping the courts and appointing the three Supreme Court justices who supplied the majority for overturning Roe v. Wade last year. He has shown some wariness of hard line antiabortion views as an electoral drag for Republicans and avoided the firm stances of some of his rivals.
Trump said he was “honored” to have paved the way for Roe v. Wade to be overturned after nominating and confirming hundreds of conservative judges to the federal bench, including three conservative justices to the Supreme Court.
“The fact that I was able to terminate Roe v. Wade after 50 years, they worked for 50 years, I’ve never seen anything like it,” Trump said of the longtime conservative effort to overturn the constitutional right to an abortion. “I was so honored to have done it.”
Misogynic Rapist Says Wuuut?:
***And all the Roosh supporting incels laughed out loud. Stay classy!
President Biden/Biden Campaign Responds:
E. Jean Carroll/Rape:
He repeatedly insisted Wednesday night that he never knew Carroll, accusing her of lying and mocking her account that he attacked her in the 1990s in a dressing room of the department store Bergdorf Goodman. The former president, who did not testify at the trial, used the CNN town hall setting to try to debunk Carroll’s story point by point — drawing laughter and applause from some in the audience of Republican and independent voters.
