CNN Team Gangbangs Trump And His Crew Of Liars For Their “Fact-Free” Relentless Idiocy [VIDEO]

It was SO enjoyable to watch this last night. Via Mediaite:

If you were wondering how CNN would proceed after being trashed by President-elect Donald Trump and his advisors this week, the first 15 minutes of AC360 should make it very clear. The quartet of Anderson Cooper, Jake Tapper, Jim Sciutto, and Jim Acosta (the reporter who Trump fought with) went all-in criticizing the Trump team’s reactions to their network’s initial reporting about the 2-page synopsis the president-elect was briefed on.

Kellyanne Conway in particular disputed that––in part by citing reports from elsewhere––but with CNN supplementing its reporting tonight, Cooper called out Conway for “misleading on two points” in their contentious back-and-forth last night. Cooper again made it clear that CNN’s reporting was separate and distinct from BuzzFeed’s (and they did not link directly to BuzzFeed’s report with that dossier full of unverified allegations, even though Conway told Cooper they did).

You’ll definitely want to watch this clip.

  • Brian in Valdosta

    Good. This is the kind of vigorous hold-their-feet-to-the-flames kind of reporting that I was talking about yesterday (in another comment thread) that news outlets need to be engaging in. Not just with Trump, mind you, but with all politicians and regarding all issues of government. Don’t give them a pass even on things that might seem like small stuff, because baby, they’ll lie lie lie if you (we) let them get away with it.

    • Gustav2

      And I am glad to see some reporters have given themselves permission to use the word “LIES.”

      • jimbo65

        That word needs to be normalized among journalists. I notice lately Rachel Maddow has been outright in calling Cheetolini a liar

  • Todd20036

    Why didn’t this happen 6 months ago when it could have fucking done some good?

    • jimbo65

      Yep. At this point they’re just trying to take down the Frankenstein monster they helped create.

      • Tom

        Exactly they pumped up the horse race for cash ‘n clicks, the tighter the race the more eyeballs and media buys, and now their business model needs to be their attempt to as you say….take this Down. But a little less wrapping themselves in the Constitution and more a hair shirt at this time CNN.YOU GOT A LOT to make up for..

      • Mark

        Naaaa. They’re just trying to shield themselves and their employer. Suddenly their integrity becomes meaningful.

    • Frank McCormick

      They were attempting the same thing that Putin was doing — minimizing the effectiveness of a President Hillary Clinton, thinking that there was no way that Trump would win.

      • Kim K’s Kute Koochy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        to be fair, they’re one of the fiercest critics of Tramp, which gave the fucker even more airtime

    • Chucktech

      Hillary was gonna win, Democrats don’t do unsavory things like this, seems too outrageous to be true, lots of excuses reasons..

    • Butch

      All throughout the election Trump’s surrogates would answer any question about Trump by shifting the conversation to something about Hillary Clinton and you let them get away with it, time after time. Too little too late, guys, although it is good to see you’ve learned the word “lies.”

      • david fairfield

        Particularly Anderson. It was maddening. And he grilled Hillary over her pneumonia episode, he was a total jerk to her. From that day forward I lost all respect for him.

        Now in all fairness, their false equivalencies were professionally presented.

        • Butch

          And with impeccable fashion sense. Wouldn’t it be nice to see some TV personalities with enough independence to lose the suit and tie?

    • gaymex1

      Honestly, I had more balls when I was a reporter for my highschool newspaper. It is just fucking disgusting how they put Trump where he is. Such fucking pussies…and when Trump grabbed them, they loved the massage.

    • Guest

      Because they believed that ass kissing would get them into the “inner circle.” Hahahaha.

      • Librarykid

        It just gets you into the dump zone.

    • Librarykid

      CNN’s ox was not being gored then.

    • Gerry Fisher

      “Trump wasn’t threatening *us* back then!”

    • ColdCountry

      That would have been nice, yes, and hindsight is, as my mother used to say, 20/20. The important thing is that they have woken up and are doing the right thing now. If they, and every other reputable news source, is scrupulous about their ethics and facts, I believe they will eventually win over the majority of people, people who prior to this, believed everything Trump said.

      • David Walker

        First, they have to figure out a way to get the goobs to watch. AC is a homo, and that still matters to them.

        • ColdCountry

          True, but if the news industry feels threatened enough that they all get on board, and are LOUD and persistent about it… after all, “truth” is an agreed upon set of ideas that is not necessarily grounded in “fact”, so we need to change the narrative.

        • david fairfield

          Are they in touch with reality enough to even know that? Let alone tune in to CNN.

          • David Walker

            They know. Trust me.

          • david fairfield

            You are correct, of course. 🙂

    • Nic Peterson

      Because they never thought he would win. Nobody did, except the frog folks.

  • Gustav2

    What? Kellyanne Goebbels lies? No, she “misleads.”

  • thank you for last night. all of you. it was wild, fun, and multi-O.

    (i’m speaking to someone who can only read my comments but not actually speak to me)

    • Todd20036

      MAL?

      • Gustav2

        (i think she is talking to Kellyanne!) /s

        • don’t make me downvote you, you silly sweed.

          😉

      • Nesha is the most beautiful woman ever. OK, maybe not exactly that, but she is perfect. small, thin, smart, wears the Sexy Glasses, has all natural hair that just makes you want to…

        there’s a man in her life, a loser. i fucked him up good last night, after she came over to be with me. it’s wrong of me to be this way, but i enjoy fucking with stupid loser men. who will lose to me, every time their woman wants what is Real.

        he’s so sad he begs for money in the street. she’s so awesome, men stop their cars to let her walk by them, just to look at her utterly perfect ass.

        i guess i’m being like you guys, for a change. but you know when you wake up, so languid, so satisfied? that was me this morning. she couldn’t stay, but oh…. i have issues with the institution of marriage. but this one?

        yeah, i’d probably do it.

        • Bj Lincoln

          Sounds like fun.

          • i’ve always wanted to meet you in person. you’re so smart, and i think we would Prowl together well. i am an expert.

            i guess this is the problem with approaching the “old age” phase of life. i’m still not letting it go,the Power. that thing where you know you can own them, work them, make them write you bad checks…

            but i’m too old for all of this fun and i should stay with the other one. also last night. yes, i’m that kind of ho. it could’ve been three but i was tired, being old now and all that shit.

            also, being sensitive and early morning and now lonely and lusting for a woman… i’m probably going to blab a lot here today. she just moved me. we didn’t even get to part three. (sigh) that’s how old i feel, i can’t even do the full show anymore.

            is there a pill or Rx that will fix this? i guess i’ll just pet my new cat.

    Does anyone know why 13 democratic senators voted against an ACA ammendement that would allow importing medication from Canada, thus lowering the cost of medication?
    While 12 republicans voted for it, and the amendment failed….

    • Gustav2

      Are the D’s just voting against ANY changes to ACA?

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      $$$ from big pharma.

      • Chucktech

        Bingo. You’ll find your answer in the halls of K Street offices.

    • stuckinthewoods

      My own VA senator Warner (D) voted against it too and has not responded with explanation. This link says graft, disguised as safety concern (Canada…really?). First link in it is to a Slate article. Same conclusion.

    • Bj Lincoln

      I heard on our local news that a company has come out with an epipen in a 2 pack for $100 compared to the Epipen 1 pack for $600 PLUS insurance companies will not be paying for the more expensive one any more! I really hope this is the wave of the future for both big pharma and insurance. One of the biggest problems in this country is that pharma has been getting away with jacking up prices because insurance was paying them no matter the cost. You can go anywhere else in the world and get the SAME products for reasonable prices but they are ripping off insurance and people here.

      • kareemachan

        I heard about this last night and was like, “ABOUT EFFING TIME!” Some idiot CEO who makes Epipens thought that is Shrekli (or whatever his name is) can do this, so can we! Profits!!!

        Well, sometimes other people take note, find a way to do it more cheaply, and bummer, dude, your profits just took a nose-dive.

        Couldn’t have happened to a shittier person. Except Martin, of course.

        • karen in kalifornia

          LOL. That CEO idiot is daughter of WV Sen. Joe Manchin (D).

      • david fairfield

        It’s always a happy day when the stronghold they have on a certain med expires and a generic is offered for a fraction of the cost.

      ALL got big $ from big pharma, incd Cory Booker

      • LawdyB

        This is concerning. All the big media began to paint Cory Booker as the next possible Democratic Presidential Candidate in 2020. With his seemingly willingness to do what the money says, I think he has a good shot.

      • Mike French

        Cory took over $300,000 from drug companies.

      • david fairfield

        So, we’re not represented by the dem party. We’ve been abandoned. When were they planning on telling us?

    • The excuses I heard were concern for safety of imported drugs, which strikes me as kind of thin. I mean, Canada’s standards are at least as high as ours and for non-generics, it’s the same damned stuff.

    • The_Wretched

      PHARMA dollars. In many cases, the ‘grey market’ or ‘foreign’ drugs are made by the same people at the same manufacturing plants and the only difference is that they are shipped to canada or UK or somewhere else first. Note that the ‘safety’ argument doesn’t prevent us importing food from places that have extremely lax to non-existant testing for pollution or toxic herbicides or insecticides.

  • BobSF_94117

    When Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, says something about something he himself said or did, he “reports”. He does not “allege”.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    Trump: I will not take CNN’s yellow reporting lying down! Urine big trouble Acosta, believe me!

    And Cooper, urinalysis stinks!! CNN, you’re FIRED!

      MoP Conway is never wrong …the mission of Minister of Propaganda is to misinform, mislead, and lie as required to protect the new regime from all criticism regardless of facts.

    • kareemachan

      Question is: did she get paid yet?

  • geoffalnutt

    The string has disappeared into her back. She’s broken and out of control. The bride of Chucky is through.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Something tells me that he wont last 4 years

      • greenmanTN

        I will be surprised if he makes it through a year. The ethical conflicts with his businesses vs the office of President are going to get really messy.

        Unfortunately, that will leave us President Pence, which is not my idea of a picnic either.

        • Ragnar Lothbrok

          True, but we can deal with him-as we have.
          One monster at a time.

        • The Return of Traxley

          I think he will have a major psychotic break, try to fire anyone and everyone on his staff from cabinet members to housekeeping, and upon realizing he really can’t do that, he’ll throw a chair through the windows of the Oval Office and storm off to Pissgibbon Place In Manhattan to meet with his Russian attorneys and try to sue the federal government and every American citizen for not saying nice things about him. His complete tax returns from 1970 ro 2015 and several videos will be found in a lovely fruit basket delivered to the New York Times. A few weeks later he’ll be found alone in his penthouse by a maid, an apparent victim of auto-asphyxiation in a pee-soaked bed.

        if a 9/11 situation happens we are in deep shit. people will need the truth to handle it and all chump and his crew are good at is lies. it happened to bush and we have that situation result in iraq….a trillion dollar disaster, not to mention the lives lost and all the damaged veterans.

    Isn’t the appropriate response to Conway “FU”?

  • Tom G

    It gives me a bit of comfort to know every move and every word Trump says from now on will be on record. There will be no secret chats that he can deny like he has had for his entire career. He’s gotten himself a very tough job with very tough rules.

    • What makes you think he’s going to play by the rules?

  • cleos_mom
  • rednekokie

    And further, Kremlin Kellyanne will continue to lie and bluster her way through most anything. If she cannot lie her way out of it, she will shout her way out of it, giving the floor to no one else.

  • Watching this, I’m wondering what the Trump team is trying to deflect attention from.

    Because Trump is all about smoke and mirrors.

    • McSwagg

      Well, he is cursed with a “slight of hands” condition.

  • Gerry Fisher

    I think that CNN finally gets it, that Trump is positioning himself to take them out. It’s serious; it’s about survival. As lame as they’ve been, we’d be better off if they survived this tussle.

      If this is what it takes to bring back “real” journalism, it might not be all bad.

    She has no place on a national news program. Do… not… have… her… back. Period.

    And, CNN, if you do put her on the air, you are just as guilty as she is of defrauding the nation. She can’t do it without the assistance of the broadcast outlets.

    • TrollopeReader

      or at least a chron “This lady is a fraud. Do Not Believe What You Hear.”

  • thatotherjean

    NOW they get tough on Trump and his gang of idiots? Too bad they couldn’t be bothered to quit kissing his ass long enough to do some actual reporting before the election. Better late than never, but that doesn’t absolve them for a very large share of the mess we’re about to be in.

    • McSwagg

      Actually, this is exactly why they wanted the dRumpf to win. A Hillary Administration wouldn’t have any where near the turbulence we see in the dRumpf Regime. The greater the chaos, the higher their ratings, and the greater their profits. It all comes down to the ducats.

  • Pip

    Did they finally defeat the pod people who took their places during the election coverage?

    Where was this fire to point out the lies that were dripping from Trump’s mouth during the election? Where was this desire to sit and talk in length about the false statements being made every time one of Trump’s cronies went on air and blatantly lied on CNN’s various shows during the election?

    Because all I’m seeing here is a bunch of blah blah blah that is obviously too little too late.

  • Matt

    Kellyanne gets paid to lie, plain and simple. She will continue to do so as long as the money train keeps pulling into her money pit, innuendo intended.

  • david fairfield

    I just watched this clip. Look at how Anderson lets Kellyann stomp all over him. When she mentions the supposed link to that buzzfeed article he doesn’t even correct her. He seems too ill prepared for her. Were it my interview I would have imagined every possible lying scenario and been ready for her. Also I would cut her off, because talking louder and faster doesn’t make her points/pivots more factual. Shes a raging banshee.
