Don Lemon, Anchor for the Clinton News Network, are in complete “establishment defense mode.” Last night, Don Lemon addressed the Susan Rice and Evelyn Farkas stories for the first time. Instead of critically thinking about it and having a few panelists to bat the idea around as normal non-biased journalists do, Don Lemon claimed that all of it was a lie and a distraction.
“And last week, it was a debunked talking point that former Obama Administration official Evelyn Farkas admitted spying on the Trump team. She did no such thing. The week before that, it was Representative Devin Nunes’ clumsy effort to give the President cover for the wiretapping claim. The President said he was vindicated by Nunes. He was not. The ‘Washington Post’ today calls the latest claims about Susan Rice an anatomy of a fake scandal, ginned up by right-wing media and Trump. So let’s be very clear about this. There is no evidence whatsoever that the Trump team was spied on illegally. There is no evidence that backs up the President’s original claim. On this program tonight, we will not insult your intelligence by pretending otherwise, nor will we aid and abet the people trying to misinform you, the American people, by creating a diversion. Not going to do it.”
Watch via CNN:
Notice the nuanced talking point, “There is no evidence whatsoever that the Trump team was spied on LEGALLY.” This will be the left’s new line of attack. They will admit that spying took place, but they will say it was all done “legally” as though that gives them cover.
They will fall back on Trump’s tweet where he used “wiretapp” in quotes to express “electronic surveillance.” This way, they will feel as though they are winning the “technical” or “semantic” argument and don’t have to answer whether it is in the Nation’s best interest for a political establishment to spy on their opponent during a National election.
This is the left folks. They are beginning to reveal themselves as they run out of excuses for the Obama administration.
Time to boycott CNN and other outlets that serve as a “Pretorian Guard” for the Obama Administration.
