Skip to comments.Trump's calls for unity are blasted by former Bush advisor (and McStain)
Posted on 10/26/2018 12:59:30 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Former George W. Bush and John McCain advisor Mark McKinnon joined CNN Tonight With Don Lemon where he questioned Donald Trumps calls for unity following the attempted bombings of CNN, the Clintons, the Obamas, and others. The bombs were obviously politically motivated as they were sent to people with ties to the Democratic Party, or people who have been critical of Trump. Shortly after the bombs were discovered, Trump gave a speech calling for unity, then quickly blamed the media for the attacks. To point out the blatant hypocrisy, McKinnon quoted former Bush speechwriter Mike Gerson.
You cant call women cruel and misogynistic names, defame ethnic groups, discriminate based on religion, accuse opponents of being un-American and treasonous, excuse and encourage violence by your supporters, threaten political rivals with prison, tear migrant children from the arms of parents, and then credibly call for national unity when its politically useful, McKinnon said, or I would add, just needed.
McKinnon, who is a Republican, then went on to explain why, after everything listed above, Trump calling for unity now means very little if anything at all. The problem is, McKinnon said, if your entire presidency and your campaign has been the opposite message, its just hard to come forward credibly and carry that message out in a way that people are going to believe it.
McKinnon also compared Trumps credibility in moments like this to that of his predecessors....

Yahoo reporting on what happened at CNN is hilarious!
The irrelevant reporting on the unwatched.
It is a broken clock reporting on the status of the water set to boil.
We all know that if Trump was more like Bush43 (nice guy) the left would be just as hostile, just as violent and just as dishonest.
What they really despise is that Trump fights back.
A majority of Americans trust Trump and distrust the un-American RINO's like you, Bushy/McStain Jr.
Figures you are in cahoots with the "I hate my race" and "I hate my sex" Lemonade Boy.
A broken clock???
Fake Bombs = Fake News
We need more clock boy jokes
McKinnon. Bushite. Tried a fake RINO flavored “No Party” party to try to counter the insurgent Tea Party.
I’m straining my memory but another NWO RINO.
He actually started out investigating child trafficking, too, as I recall, and was somehow pulled into the darkness.
I think Trump is trying to unite America. It’s corrupt politicians, and their lap dog corporate media that’s dividing America. The corrupt come in all stripes and colors.
Some funny lines in there :)
If you still believe Bush43 is a “nice guy” you are stuck in the wrong decade.
The CEO must scream “GOOGLE” like Kirk screamed “Khan!!”
Mckinnon is a Austin Democrat .The guy handed over the debates tapes to Gore .
Stephen Proctor, Yahoo! Television
Now its ATTEMPTED bombings? Fake bombs = fake news.
No reference to the white powder threats last week received by Cruz and others. Must’ve happened in a vacuum. No one in the media seemed to hear about it.
And these ignorant liars give “financial” advice?
McKinnon is a DEMOCRAT anyway.
I like the Donald’s hard hitting rhetoric. What the left really hates is that he is winning the narrative battle everyday.
The left/Dems hate speech is a 100% percent worse and has incited widespread violence against the Donald’s supporters. Antifa dresses up as ninjas for pete’s sake!
“Trump gave a speech calling for unity, then quickly blamed the media for the attacks.”
Even CNN is reporting that all the “bombs” were designed not to explode, but to scare people and get attention. The large number of fake bombs, and the bomb-like optics fuels a media frenzy. The media is either the brainless patsy of a criminal mindermast who can’t spell “Florids”, or willfully complicit.
Who worked for RINO GOPers Bush and McCain well after the Uniparty tape incident.
The McKinnon tape incident deserves to be re analyzed. I recall it very vividly... an underling was caught on Post Office cameras (cameras which of course still exist and would of course have caught these so called mail bombers)
But I only stumbled upon McKinnon investigating child trafficking in the early 90’s by accident. How he went from “investigative journalist” to deep state tool is a matter of concern... don’t forget JEB pushed some sort of “No Party” party, too, in 2016... just like McKinnon did with other Bushites a few years previous to that.
It’s all hoax Uniparty madness.
Throw them ALL OUT.
