Skip to comments.CNN: Is White Supremacy What Trump 'Meant' by 'Make America Great Again?'
Posted on 08/16/2017 6:34:06 PM PDT by Kaslin
After Tuesdays heated press conference over Charlottesville, the media has been in a renewed frenzy over Trumps comments. Over at CNN, the outrage seemed to be at its worst, with hosts sounding just like their radically left-wing guests. On the 7am hour of CNNs New Day, fill-in host Poppy Harlow actually asked liberal reporter and CNN analyst April Ryan if Trump's slogan Make America Great Again was referring to the days when the KKK terrorized the South.
The panel discussion started between the Daily Beasts John Avlon, CNN political analysts David Gregory and April Ryan, and hosts Chris Cuomo and Poppy Harlow. The panel started off fact-checking Trumps claims that the white supremacist group had a permit to protest, before quickly moving on to attacking Trump. Gregory lamented Trump reverting to form deciding to whip up social disruption and deepen the social disruptions in our society as opposed to trying to tamp it down the hatred that an event like this represents.
Avlon then blasted the press conference as a new low of historic press conferences.
JOHN AVLON: After the president’s disastrous press conference -- in the pantheon of historic press conferences this was a new low by Donald Trump standards or any historic standards. The only people who came out to support him, there were a couple of paid shilts doing happy talk on Twitter, but were David Duke and white nationalist leaders, white supremacist leaders. If that doesn't cause a gut check, a reality check on the part of people working in the white house, what will? This president seems to have completely abdicated the moral authority that should go with the office of the president and the responsibility to at least try to unite the nation.
Host Poppy Harlow then lamented that this press conference showed “what was in” Trump’s “heart.” She asked CNN analyst April Ryan if standing up for white supremacy was what Trump “meant by make America great again.”
CNN: Is White Supremacy What Trump 'Meant' by 'Make America Great Again?'
POPPY HARLOW: People standing next to him, Gary Cohn, Steve Mnuchin. Also Jewish, as well as his daughter. His grandchildren. April Ryan, as someone who has covered the White House for a long time and questioned the president in the briefing room. This is what was in his heart, what is in his heart. He made that clear in the press conference yesterday. Is this what he meant by make America great again?
“I believe so,” April Ryan said soberly. Ryan then began to rehash the liberal conspiracy theories about Trump’s “code words” signaling to white supremacists that he was on their side. Her primary example? A fictionalized story from the media that the bust of MLK was removed by Trump from the Oval Office.
RYAN: While he was candidate Trump, many people said there were code words he was using. Make America great. And the question was, one of my questions was, at what point in our history is he talking about America being great, and we want to go back to. Supporting this yesterday shows us. It's very interesting, in listening to the conversation all morning and last night, I'm heartsick, but I have several questions this morning. What does Benjamin Netanyahu have to say about this? Because I remember just a few months ago Benjamin Netanyahu came to the United States and said Israel has no greater friend than Donald Trump. This is bigger than just everyone talking about the heart and moral authority. And then you know I also think about at the beginning of this president's entrance into the Oval Office, the big story -- I remember Zeke Miller made a mistake talking about the king bust wasn't there. The reason why it was such a big deal is because so many people were concerned about the president's heart and his mind when it came to issues of inclusion and race. That statue is still in the Oval Office, well at least, last we checked. So those are two things they need to question this morning.
These people are liars.
They are dishonest.
They stir up strife.
They attack people’s reputations.
They need to be condemned.

Little nasty, hateful children.....
America was great when it attracted the cream of the crop from around the world, regardless of color. Most were thrilled by the opportunity they enjoyed here that wasn’t open to them in their backwards homelands (on all continents).
We are reaping the fruits of decades of letting in the dregs of the world instead...
You have to be a special kind of stupid to get that interpretation from the press conference. Or just a leftist “journalist”.
That is a crime scene. It should be roped off and guarded.
Headline: “Overtaking the Cartoon Network in Ratings: Is That What CNN Intended When They Continued to Push Stupidity on their Audience?”
“CNN: Is White Supremacy What Trump ‘Meant’ by ‘Make America Great Again?’”
Does CNN really mean “Clepto Neo-Nazis?
I think the MSM has jumped the shark
My father who is like half a lib told me today Trump is finished from this Charlottesville crap.. I told him “Au contraire mi Padre, he’s all but guaranteed himself a 2nd term”. He has. That speech he gave at Trump tower, standing up to the Bolshevik media, exposing the Antifa terrorists just garnered him a couple million new votes. The major mistake of the Bolsheviks is they think the average person out there is stupid. No no no, maybe slightly stupid, but not flat out blind. They know exactly what the Bolsheviks are trying to do to him and to us as well.
Is communism what Obama meant by Yes We Can ?
So CNN has sunk as low as the History Channel Ancient Alien guys in using loaded questions to assert what they hope will be interpreted as facts. Since it’s not an actual statement they have their weaselly wiggle room. We can play that, too.
Is it true that all CNN on-air personalities are required to drink human blood and swear fealty to satan and George Soros?
Could Anderson Cooper really be the bastard offspring of Gloria Vanderbilt and David Duke?
When Jim Acosta goes to bed at night does he actually pray for America’s downfall and the rise of a Marxist totalitarian regime?
The MSM is now a haven for demagogues. That little session Fake News had with Miller a short time ago reveals that collectively the MSM thinks they re co-equal to the Executive branch, if not over it.
Is Antifa/blm what Obama “meant” by “Unity”?
Remember that? And how it disappeared from the the narrative after Nov 2008?
Can you imagine the looks on their faces if a guest would say”you do know the klan was started by the democrat party.”
That particular narrative is 100% the same as before the election. Didn’t work very well for them, so try the same thing again.
