Fake News Network CNN is hopping mad over a new Trump campaign advertisement and has fired off a letter demanding that it no longer be used.
The ad, titled “American Comeback” and released Sunday, highlights President Donald Trump’s efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
It features two snippets of dialogue from a March 30 airing of CNN’s “Situation Room.”
The ad shows CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asking: “Is it accurate that if these steps had not been put in place … it could have been 2 million people dead here in the United States?”
After the ad cuts to images of cancelled flights and an Air China plane, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent, says, “Yes.”
The ‘Do As I Say, Not As I Do’ Fake News Network CNN Lies With Impunity
CNN reported that the network had sent the Trump campaign a cease-and-desist letter demanding it stops running the ad, claiming the clip did not include the full conversation.
In the full exchange, Blitzer said, “Well, is it accurate that if these steps had not been put in place, the stay-at-home orders, the social distancing orders, as the president said yesterday, it could have been 2 million people dead here in the United States?”
Gupta then replied, “I mean, you know, these are all models, Wolf. It’s a little tough to say, but, you know, if you talk about something that is spreading, you know, very robustly throughout a community. You know, two to three times more contagious than flu, and up to 10 times, perhaps even more than that, more deadly than flu, then yes.”
Of course, even if we insanely take CNN at it’s words and President Trump ad is not portraying the fake news network accurately.
CNN crying foul over the ad is laughable as evidenced by yesterday the poster child for the Fake News Media egregiously claiming that President Trump compared himself to President Abraham Lincoln.
Of course, CNN selectively edited the real clip to remove the fact that President Trump said ‘The media egregious coverage of him was comparable, and in his opinion, even worse than that of President Lincoln.’
