CNN’s Alisyn Camerota cancelled her Twitter account because people responded negatively to her stupidity.
Camerota has spiralled even further into the pit of liberal insanity. On Thursday she came out with the absurd claim that President Trump would have approved the Uranium One deal! You know, the deal that then-Secretary of State Clinton signed off on, that sweet little deal that handed Russian President Vladimir Putin 20% to 50% of America’s uranium supplies.
And what did we get in return? Bill Clinton got paid a fortune for speaking gigs with the very same Russian companies that benefitted from the deal.
Tired of having this inconvenient truth thrown in her face, this is how Camerota responded when Jason Miller, Trump’s former senior communications advisor, brought it up:
JASON MILLER: What we did know at the time is that Secretary Clinton had been very much involved with the Russians, as we talk about the Uranium One deal, which was very scandalous and maybe there was —
CAMEROTA: We keep hearing that talking point. We understand that you guys keep bringing that up.
MILLER: So you don’t think the Uranium One deal was a big deal?
CAMEROTA: And you don’t think President Trump would have approved the Uranium One deal, the person who doesn’t want — we hear his administration doesn’t want Congress to keep sanctions on Russia?
First, there are two lies in that exchange.
Trump is opposed to additional Russian sanctions. The President never said that he has even the slightest desire to remove existing sanctions.
The other lie is the insinuation that Trump would have backed the Uranium One deal. The President has already been much tougher on Putin than Obama could have imagined. How can Camerota petend to know what the President would do?
CNN is a sinking ship, and it looks like Camerota is going to ride it all the way to the bottom.
The Daily Wire reports:
CNN chief Jeff Zucker’s only legacy will be as The Great Destroyer, the destroyer of a once-widely respected news brand, the destroyer of his network’s ratings (half the viewers of its competition), and the destroyer of the souls and reputations of formerly respected journalists. Alisyn Camerota is one of the casualties of Zucker’s obsession with pushing fake news on behalf of the Democrat Party.
Over at Fox News, Camerota was great, a real stand-out as the weekend anchor of Fox & Friends. Notwithstanding the fact that I’m no fan of cable news in any format, while she was at Fox, Camerota impressed me with her smarts and fairness. And so when she moved to CNN’s failing morning show New Day, I naively believed she would bring her integrity and smarts with her.
I’m such a fool.
