The program got heated when Lewandowski clashed with former New York City Council speaker Christine Quinn, who argued that Trump is a selfish, heartless businessman who only looks out for himself.
“We’re going to try to keep the focus where we think it belongs – the people whose lives were cut short.” said the CNN anchor, who became visibly emotional and teared up several times while reading the names.
Donald Trump’s campaign is rolling out a new strategy to try to tamp down the widespread criticism from the media and his fellow Republicans of Trump’s racist comments about a federal judge: flat-out lie about what he said and why.
In an interview taped Friday for Sunday morning’s The Lead with Jake Tapper, Donald Trump repeated the racist comments he has made at various campaigns stops this week about the federal judge presiding over two lawsuits filed by former students of Trump University.
Yesterday, CNN stepped their game up yet again. No, it wasn’t a topographical hologram of Donald Trump’s hair plugs. In fact, it was even more important: Fact-checking.
A Marquette Law School Poll on Wednesday found Sen. Ted Cruz ahead in the Badger State, with backing from 40 percent of likely voters, compared with 30 percent for Trump and 21 percent for Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
In his effort to bring this controversy under control, Kasich just couldn’t stop being really awkward about it.
Trump’s pro-wrestler talk, however, seems like a hint that he might simply be drumming up more ratings for a debate he will indeed attend.
“No, I’ve learned not to answer questions. That’s one of the things that you do now in political discourse,” Bush said, letting out a laugh.
“We’re talking about ruthless things tonight,” co-moderator Hugh Hewitt said deep in the second debate. Indeed, Rick Santorum kicked off the affair by asserting, “We have entered World War III,” setting the tone for a pair of fractious, grim GOP debates focussed on national security and terrorism.
Watch the Republican frontrunner — who has made his own vitriolic remarks about minority groups — talk about how uncomfortable Scalia’s comments made him.
We’re now at point where a presidential candidate has to defend his honor by insisting he really did try to stab his friend and to bludgeon his mother.
Not only did CNN’s Anderson Cooper pose several tough questions to Clinton, from the very beginning of the debate, but he seized every chance to pillory Hillary in framing questions he put to the other candidates. (And he did ask her — and the others — about the damned emails.)
How gratifying to hear a leading presidential candidate sound like a normal American and not get punished for it. Newt Gingrich once called Democrats “the enemy of normal Americans.” Who’s looking normal now?
In a truly painful interview Wednesday afternoon on CNN, Wolf Blitzer repeatedly asked Lincoln Chafee an sharply focused set of questions: Why are you still running?
Even when the Democratic candidates disagreed, the first debate was largely an appeal to pragmatism, conciliation, and — for the most part — unapologetically progressive principles.
My instincts told me that if we just gave the Hillary email story another poke or two, the whole house of cards would collapse.
