CNN political commentators S.E. Cupp and Brian Stelter trashed the claims by MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough that Trump has been using the National Enquirer as a means of blackmail.
When liberal CNN isn’t even standing up for Joe Scarborough, you KNOW it’s bad!!!
According to The Daily Caller‘s report:
“Political commentators S.E. Cupp and Brian Stelter are suspicious of Joe Scarborough’s claims that Trump has been using the National Enquirer as a means of blackmail.
MSNBC’s Scarborough alleged Friday that Trump would call him and ask for positive coverage on “Morning Joe.” In exchange, Trump would kill negative stories about Scarborough that were set to run in the National Enquirer.
The White House spun a different version of events, claiming Scarborough was actually the one calling Trump and asking him to make the negative stories go away.
On CNN Friday, Cupp said there were several reasons she doubted Scarborough’s version of events.
“You’d imagine a seasoned broadcaster and former political official would record [phone calls with Trump],” Cupp opined. “If he didn’t, that’s a little odd to me.”
“I’m wondering also why he sat on it for so long,” she said.
Stelter seemed to agree with her assessment, stating, “I had the same questions for NBC.”
“This seems like a disturbing thing that was happening in April, why wouldn’t you tell your audience while it was happening?” he asked. “And there’s no comment from NBC.””
Do you agree with Trump that the mainstream media has gone too far in anti-Trump reporting into self destruction?
