CNN is notorious for supporting the Left. Anytime they interview someone who supports President Trump or have any GOP member on their shows, it is almost always a one-sided conversation. If GOP members or supporters say something in favor of the president or if they pull out all the stops and reveal something against the Democrats, they automatically get interrupted. Things were no different when Republican Senator Ron Johnson from Wisconsin was on “State of the Union,” and CNN anchorman Jake Tapper would not let Johnson talk as he was defending the president. Tapper was constantly interrupting when Johnson was explaining why it’s wrong for House Democrats to continue pushing for the impeachment of President Trump.
Tapper threw in his thoughts on the procedures, “A lot of people, whether it is Gordon Sondland or Fiona Hill or LTC Vindman, one after the other understood your point of view from oh, the president opposes corruption in Ukraine and who wouldn’t oppose corruption but in actuality, and I think Fiona Hill used the term ‘code,’ this is actually ‘code’ for ‘investigate the Bidens.”
Johnson responded, “Again, that is their impression. I’ve never heard the president say, ‘No, I want to dig up dirt on a potential 2020 opponent.’ What I always heard the president consistently concerned about is what happened in 2016. ‘Why did this— how did this false narrative of Russian collusion with my campaign occur?’ ‘Why was I strapped with the special counsel?’”
After the last answer to the question as Johnson was going into detail on the faults of the Democrats, Tapper cut off Johnson again, “And there are two investigations about that, right. There were two investigations.” So we see as Johnson is pushing for the truth to come out, Tapper is ready to fire off on something else interrupting the facts. This is how the socialist media works in a free America. Johnson fired back, shutting Tapper up by saying, “It is a very human desire. Jake, you are interrupting me, but go ahead and interrupt me again.”
This was a tic for tac moment as Johnson would not take any heat from the Left Anchorman. Tapper was still interrupting as he was allowed by Johnson to ask his questions and state his case. Tapper said, “In May the Attorney General appointed a former U.S. Attorney John Durham, who is very respected to investigate the origins of the Russia investigation. There is also the Inspector General for the Justice Department investigating whether or not the FBI conducted any FISA abuse or any other abuses.”
Again, Senator Johnson fired back, trying to speak over the ignorant anchorman. “And by the way, I continue with my oversight with Senator Chuck Grassley, and interesting things have occurred. The Politico article back in 2017 named Alexandra Chalupa as an American Ukrainian hired by the DNC, and now through the Freedom of Information Act, we found out she visited the White House 27 times during the campaign. She had met with over a dozen Ukrainian journalists, which he tied to the information that brought down Paul Manafort. Nelly Ohr had also talked about meeting with Ukrainians.” As Johnson said this, Tapper kept saying, “Yes, and Paul Manafort is in jail.”
So what does Tapper interrupting Johnson have to do with Paul Manafort? Notice as soon as Johnson mentions “Ukrainians,” Tapper is ready with a rebuttal concerning Paul Manafort, which is something irrelevant to the conversation. It is a tactic for the host to throw Johnson off his game as he is giving the facts. All Johnson does is lets the audience know he is being rudely interrupted.
It was a disgrace how disrespectful CNN really is when it comes to politics on their level is allotted, but everyone else’s opinion does not matter. The interviewers quickly interrupt or argue and even change the subject matter to something irrelevant when the Left’s position gets tested. These journalists and hosts are cowards because they know the truth, and they know exactly what they are doing and how to push the GOP buttons.
The thing is, it shows the true colors of how much the Democrats want to corrupt inside the media. These show hosts do not realize how bad they are making everything for themselves. Conservatives are saying Democrats are so obvious when it comes to how they deviate from the truth. Now Trump supporters just point out how many times they are interrupted or shut down from speaking altogether.
