CNN Guest Humiliates Panel by Exposing Its ‘Out-of-Context’ Attack on Donald Trump

Republican communications consultant Lee Carter brought to light the network’s inaccurate portrayal of former President Donald Trump in a recent CNN piece, after statements he made during Tuesday night’s town hall.

Carter said that Trump’s words were taken out-of-context, causing CNN’s pile-on in the entire segment to come grinding to a halt.

Trump was asked about the media’s tremendous dread of him acquiring power during an interview with Sean Hannity on Tuesday. “You are promising America tonight, you would never abuse power as retribution against anybody?” Hannity inquired.

“Except for Day One,” Trump jokingly stated. “I want to close the border and I want to drill, drill, drill!”

Carter claimed that when taken out of context, this soundbite twisted the former President’s original meaning. The CNN debate, paradoxically, functioned as a forum for exposing the network’s anti-Trump prejudices.

“I don’t think that what he meant to say was, ‘I’m really going to be a dictator’ in that moment. That’s not what he was saying. He was saying, ‘I’m going to be a dictator on day one and under these two terms,’” Carter explained.

“This is very much like in 2016, everybody said, ‘He’s an outsider, he’s got no experience.’ And he’s like, ‘Yeah, I’m an outsider with no experience. I’m gonna blow things up in D.C.’ He’s got that kind of a way about him. He did, and he did, but that’s what people like about him, by the way,” she added.

Trump looked to be purposefully taunting the media during the primetime pre-recorded Iowa town hall. According to the newsfeed on Wednesday morning, the bait appears to have worked.

The corporate media has taken Trump’s words in the most unfavorable way imaginable, as seen by headlines such as “Trump Deflects Question On Retribution And Law-Breaking At Town Hall” from The New York Times.

The Associated Press reported Tuesday:

“Trump declines to rule out abusing power to seek retribution if he returns to the White House,” despite giving an accurate account of the exchange, albeit without the Executive Order context. The AP’s take was not dissimilar to the radical left publication The Daily Beast, which wrote, “Donald Trump, in a Fox News town hall Wednesday, did not rule out breaking the law if re-elected president.”

Earlier in the conversation, Trump asked Hannity a similar question in reference to the Biden Administration’s recent measures against him. The host questioned Trump on whether he had “in any way” made “plans whatsoever, if reelected president, to abuse power, to break the law, to use the government to go after people.”

“You mean like they’re using right now?” Trump inquired.

The former President even made a bold prediction on Joe Biden’s future: “I personally don’t think he makes it, OK?” I believe he is in poor physical condition.”

“And by the way, it was OK for him to say that ‘I’d like to take him behind,’ and he could say that and everyone thought it was so cute. If I ever said it, they’d say, ‘He’s a dictator. He’s a horrible human being.’ You know, it’s a whole double standard we have,” Trump added.
