On Wednesday, 45th President Donald Trump crushed it in his town hall with CNN, having an answer for all of the deceptive questions lobbed at him by the network’s Kaitlan Collins.
The President unequivocally refused to let CNN get away with saying the 2020 election was not rigged, while Collins repeatedly butted in, claiming it was not.
She also repeatedly butted in and did not let him answer questions, to which he dubbed her a “nasty person.”
Here are some clips from the night:
But even more amusing was socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) freaking out on Twitter for the network hosting the town hall at all — a sign it was a slam dunk.
“CNN should be ashamed of themselves. They have lost total control of this “town hall” to again be manipulated into platforming election disinformation, defenses of Jan 6th, and a public attack on a sexual abuse victim. The audience is cheering him on and laughing at the host,” she tweeted.
She added in a subsequent tweet, “This falls squarely on CNN. Everyone here saw exactly what was going to happen. Instead they put a sexual abuse victim in harm’s way for views. This was a choice to platform lies about the election & Jan 6th w/ no plan but to have their moderator interrupted without consequence.”
She then went on MSNBC to bemoan CNN for having the 45th President on the network for the town hall, saying, “I know you said earlier that you will not comment on the platforming of such atrocious disinformation, but I would. I think it was a profoundly irresponsible decision … it was shameful.”
President Trump currently holds a 41-point lead over his GOP primary rivals and the CNN town hall is likely to further cement his dominance in the race to reclaim the White House from Joe Biden, given the positive reviews from Republicans and Democrats alike.
Former Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang wrote, “This #CNNTownhall is shaping up to be a clear win for Trump, certainly in the Republican field and probably overall.”
