Leave it to Fake News CNN to present a candidate’s mother as a voter swayed by Obama to vote for someone.
That’s some real ‘Crackerjack’ reporting there, CNN, we couldn’t possibly imagine why people call you fake news.
There really is no good way to spin this story for the left.
Obama is holding rallies for the Democrats. If his ‘support’ for the Democrats works out as well for them this time as it did last time, the Liberal meltdown videos this year will make the 2016 clips look tame by comparison.
But the story isn’t the rally (after all, we’ve all heard Obama blow smoke before) it’s something that happened in how CNN COVERED that rally.
Reporting from the Florida rally Obama held for Bernie Sanders’s spirit-son, Andrew Gillum, CNN found an unlikely person to interview… Gillum’s own mother.
How she identifies herself makes the exchange seem weirder still.
LOL @CNN just interviewed a “random” person at the Gillum rally who said Obama’s presence helped influence her vote and it turned out she was Gillum’s mom.
There aren’t that many explanations for how this exchange happened, and none of them make those involved look honest, professional, or even good.
Here’s what we know.
The CNN voiceover claims they picked her randomly out of the crowd.
The woman was asked whether Obama’s rally would influence her vote. She agreed that it would.
Later in the conversation, she identified herself as Francis Gillum, “and as a matter of fact, my son is running for Governor”.
The most obvious question to ask is how would Obama stumping for her son would make her MORE likely to vote for him than she would have been otherwise.
Was she wavering? Was she leaning toward DeSantis? Did Obama make a convincing closing argument that finally won her over? Or was she simply being dishonest or dopey?
After that, how is it that CNN ‘randomly’ chose the candidate’s own mother? What she a plant who forgot she wasn’t supposed to mention her connections to the candidate, and her admission made them backpedal to make it look accidental?
(It wouldn’t be the first time we’ve seen the Media(D) resort to this kind of cynical hackery.)
Alternatively, supposing she WAS ‘randomly selected’, what was guiding their choices so that in a crowd of reportedly ‘3000’ people that they just ‘happened’ to select the mother of the candidate?
Was the Candidate’s own mother just milling among the masses? Or did she have some special seating? And did CNN “randomly select” someone from the reserved seating because they could be confident they would not get some kind of an embarrassing or fence-sitting response that would undercut the narrative?
Can you think of another explanation we overlooked?
The whole interview smells funkier than gas-station sushi.
Even the most hopelessly landlocked Trump fan can unleash their ‘inner surfer’ with this one!
There is no question, Trump is the ‘Big Kahuna’ of politics.
News network can’t go two stories without bringing his name into the conversation one way or another.
He is, once again defying all political odds, and is whipping up strength down-ticket on the Mid-terms.
He stuck to his guns over Kavanaugh and convinced the Senate to do the same, and the polls are showing it!
Not long ago, the Media(D) were excitedly chattering about a blue wave. Then the gap narrowed.
