Dem catches on, says Trump is creating distractions


CNN has launched all-out war against President Trump as its programming dissolves into a flurry of reactions to the President’s tweets regarding “Morning Joe” hosts.

CNN’s “New Day” featured a segment on Friday titled, “Lawmakers Respond to Trump’s Tweets,” in which they interviewed Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), who accused President Trump of “attacking” MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski with a tweet as a way of deflecting from negative coverage of the Senate healthcare bill.

Coons speculated:

“Frankly, this is just part of his ongoing tactic of distracting. We’ve got a situation in Capitol Hill where the Senate Republican version of Trumpcare is floundering. They had promised that they’d take a vote this week, they delayed that. They promised they’d have a revised version of it by Friday; they don’t. And frankly, I think this was the president once again lashing out at someone in the media, in this particular case in a personally offensive and unacceptable way, partly just to distract us.”

He pointed out that Trump’s plan worked, that the media — especially CNN — was focused on Trump’s tweets rather than healthcare, which was emphasized by the entire topic of the CNN show. It was rather ironic, coming from a network that’s currently being called out for its fake news and pushing false narratives to drive up ratings.

“So, we are spending this morning talking about the president’s tweets, and about an interpersonal fight between him and someone whom I respect,” Coons said, “rather than talking about the impact on Americans, in my case on Delawareans, of the healthcare bill.”
