Donald Trump is endangering the lives of reporters by not denouncing his crowd for chanting “CNN sucks.”
Tuesday morning’s CNN New Day ended the first hour of the show criticizing Donald Trump for attacking the media, which isn’t unusual but then the conversation quickly turned into what some may call an overreaction.
CNN began by playing a clip of a Donald Trump rally yesterday where the crowd began chanting, “CNN sucks” repeatedly. The CNN panel didn’t like that one bit and blamed Trump for not telling the crowd to quit it. Hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota, along with guests Brian Stelter and Bill Carter suggested that Trump was endangering reporters’ lives, painting a nightmare scenario of Trump supporters violently attacking reporters. “I’m telling you, something is going to happen. Something is going to happen,” Cuomo solemnly warned.
After playing the short video clip, Cuomo, Camerota, Carter and Stelter wonder aloud what sinister outcome could arise from this display. Cuomo began by calling it “very high on the list of irresponsible things the guy has done,” blasting Trump for not thinking “about the implications to anybody other than himself.” Cuomo whined, “Have you ever heard of anybody in politics, let alone a presidential nominee, doing anything like this to the fourth estate?”
Stelter agreed this was “much, much worse than what we’ve seen in the past,” while Bill Carter added that there was “a mob mentality now at stake.” “These people are yelling and shouting and threatening reporters in a way I’ve never seen,” he stated.
Alisyn Camerota remarked that at rallies crowd members would “yell at” reporters and make “vulgar gestures at them.”
“[A]nd Trump encourages it,” Stelter began to say. “He needs to help bring the temperature down. Instead, he keeps raising the temperature by lying to them,” he added.
Something’s going to happen?
Funny you’re now so worried, as you didn’t give a sh*t about warnings “something’s going to happen” with the Black Lives Matter movement which you pushed based on total lies. Your lying propaganda led to five cops being murdered in Dallas and dozens of others being shot around the country.
How much responsibility are you taking for that “something” which has since unleashed an epidemic of black on white crime?
When you blame yourselves for the murders of all these innocent people by killed Black Lives Matter supporters, maybe we’ll start worrying about someone doing “something” back to you.
