Accuracy in Media

CNN claimed that President Donald Trump threatened Nevada Republican senator Dean Heller while on camera yesterday. Republican senators met with the president to discuss the future of health care reform, after it was temporarily scrapped due to increased Republican opposition to the American Health Care Act (AHCA) passed in the House of Representatives.

The president said the following, which CNN interpreted as a threat:

“This was the one we were worried about. You weren’t there. But you’re gonna be. You’re gonna be. Look, he wants to remain a senator, doesn’t he? And I think the people of your state, which I know very well, I think they’re gonna appreciate what you hopefully will do. Any senator who votes against starting debate is really telling America that you’re fine with Obamacare. But being fine with Obamacare isn’t enough for another reason. Because it’s gone. It’s failed. It’s not gonna be around.”
Senator Heller, along with South Carolina senator Tim Scott, laughed at the president’s joke, but CNN took it as a threat to Senator Heller.
Is CNN a reliable Trump-interpreting news outlet? Probably not.

    Yeah, and it’s ironic that some of the same people who started, support and still watch CNN believe that Lenin and Stalin didn’t slaughter enough people (and most were fellow citizens) and that these Politburo serial killers should have murdered tens of millions of more people. We are are dealing still with such Marxist lunatics and psychopaths and at the highest bureaucratic levels. Yet the band, i.e., Congress, still plays on.
