Last week, President Trump condemned the Democratic Party over their pathetic attempts to rein in one of their own. In no uncertain terms, he called them the anti-Jewish party. Democratic spokesman and non-journalist Jim Acosta (of CNN), tried to slander the president in front of the press secretary. In classic fashion, Sarah Sanders schooled the wanna-be newsman.
We’ve already talked about that shocking behavior of the Democrats in recent weeks. They elected a Muslim woman to Congress, claiming this was a great victory for America. Very quickly, they discovered this woman was an anti-Semite. Ilhan Omar spread anti-Israel, anti-Semitic remarks and it was learned that she had a history of saying such things.
Pressure mounted for the Democrats to reprimand the woman and reassert their support for Israel and condemn anti-Semitism. They did not. They party was too scared of correcting a newbie congresswoman—because she was Muslim and non-white. Instead, they passed a bogus resolution that did not even address her comments.
Omar took a victory lap, proving to everyone that as a Muslim woman of color, she could get away with anything.
President Trump did not take that lightly. He openly condemned the Democrats for the disgraceful episode, calling them the anti-Jewish party.
I thought yesterday’s vote by the House was disgraceful, because it’s become, the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party… And I thought that vote was a disgrace and so does everybody else if you get an honest answer. [Source: Daily Wire]
President Trump’s comments were strong, but accurate. When the Democrats can’t even reprimand one of their own over obviously wrong statements, they have a real problem. When many Democrats are unwilling to vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism, what else can we conclude but that they are anti-Jewish?
This isn’t the only recent example of the Democrats treating Jewish people with contempt, too. It is an ugly, growing trend on the left.
After Trump’s statement, CNN’s Jim Acosta decided to harass White House press secretary Sarah Sanders. In typical, fake news fashion, the so-called reported dropped a bunch of biased, unprofessional, pathetic slander on Trump with his “question.”
According to Jim Acosta, President Trump condemning anti-Jewish sentiment so forcefully was “beneath everybody” and asked Sanders if Trump would tone it down…
“Do you think that the president has thought, at all, going into the 2020 campaign that the rhetoric just needs to be lowered? Whether it’s talking about Democrats, the media, immigrants, or should we just plan on hearing the president use the same kind of language that we heard in 2016 and all through the first couple years of this administration?” [Source: Daily Wire]
This kind of nonsense is pretty typical of Democrats in the media. Pretending to be impartial, they selectively listen to the president’s statements and agenda. He calls Trump’s condemnation of anti-Semitism “rhetoric.” Then he groups that in with what he considers attacks by the president over the media (the fake news), immigrants (he refused to call them illegal immigrants) and other issues.
We don’t see Acosta questioning the Democrats over their refusal to condemn anti-Semitism. Notice that, because that’s big. This entire episode is the result of a Muslim Democrat saying anti-Semitic things. But Acosta doesn’t go after the party for that. He just takes their pathetic excuses at face value.
Yet when Trump makes a very clear statement, Acosta only half listens, twisting it so sound like something it doesn’t mean.
This is why we call them “fake news.” They know what the facts are, but they deliberately twist them to push their narrative.
Sarah Sanders was having none of it.
“Democrats have had a number of opportunities to condemn specific comments and have refused to do that,” Sanders said. “I think that is a great shame. The president has been clear on what his position is, certainly what his support is for the people and the community of Israel.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Even after this rebuke, idiot Acosta continued to shoot his mouth off. He said Democrats don’t hate Jewish people. That it was just silly. Um, what? Since when was it Acosta’s job to make claims about the Democrats? He’ll extend that kind of consideration for them, but continues to slander the president?
He then attacked the president again, even going as far as to imply Trump was the anti-Semite.
Thus, we see that the left will never learn. CNN is not in the business of news, but slander. Acosta and the rest of their staff are Democratic agents, only concerned with spreading propaganda.
It’s a wonder anyone bothers to pay attention to them.
