Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may never talk to CNN again after they turned on her with one question

Published

on

CNN is the network for the far-Left.

It is a dedicated fake news network that opposes Trump and supports Democrats full time.

But something shocking just happened, and now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may never talk to them again after they turned on her with one question.

Reasonable commentary isn’t something one would expect from CNN.

But in a rare moment of fairness, CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a series of harsh questions about her claim that Trump’s migrant detention centers are “concentration camps.”

After blasting her for using the term, as it is offensive to Holocaust survivors, he dropped the one question nobody ever expected CNN to ask.

Tapper wanted to know whether the “concentration camp” definition for the camps was correct during the Obama and Clinton administrations, who both operated the same detention centers.

Not surprisingly, Ocasio-Cortez didn’t have much of an answer, besides giving excuses like “I was working in a restaurant” at that time.

NewsBusters reports:

But the best moment by far was the deer in the headlights look she gave when Tapper called her out on her hypocrisy about immigration policies under President Obama:

“Using that definition there were also concentration camps under Obama and under Bill Clinton. That’s in the story you retweeted. So did you call them concentration camps at the time, when Obama was president?” he asked.

Ocasio-Cortez fumbled for an answer, at first claiming she was ignorant, then claiming she did call out Obama at the time too. So…which was it?

“Well, at the time I was working in a restaurant,” she began, adding, “but I do — I absolutely was outspoken against Obama’s immigration policies and the detention of families then. I think it’s a remarkably consistent position…. I’m here to speak truth to power.”

These are the sort of questions one would imagine hearing from a host like Tucker Carlson.

And that’s the reason far-Left Democrats like Ocasio-Cortez avoid Tucker and other shows that aren’t afraid to ask real questions.

CNN is supposed to throw softball questions at Democrats and give them a chance to look good.

After this, it wouldn’t be surprising if Ocasio-Cortez never appears on CNN again.

Do you think Jake Tapper asked a good question?

    Why are we just this week seeing images from the Obama era that show caged children in border detention that took place for years? Obama built those cages now the media pretends not to know anything about them. I saw a picture today that not only showed caged children but they were all sleeping on the floor with tin foil blankets…was this a mind warp or am I having illusions? By the way Jay Johnson was in those images…

    I think the question was completely reasonable. Plus she went to some of these facilities today and could only find fault with at least one of them, are we surprised, NO.

    In a RARE note of fairness (CNN?!?) she showed the world of lies AND hypocrisy she lives in. When will AOC be showed the door out of Congress and back to bartending? She doesn’t need any brains or “common sense” there.

    It is a question I would ask, or any reporter should ask. It just goes to how you, she never considered that question, and was never coached to give a answer by the people who pay her, auditioned her for her position, and teach her what to say.

    AOC makes these outrages statements because the press hangs on every word that comes out of her mouth and she sees those Benjamins in her future if she can keep her name out there in the press. The former bartender has not a clue about what she says but she the democrats dont care, she is there little super hero fighting the Republicans,and if she is doing that it matters not what gibberish come out of her brain.

    I am sure Tapper has a ton of real questions he used to be able to ask when he worked for a real media outlet. I know many many of these people are wishing for the old days when they could actually do the job they were hired for. Hopefully he will not get in trouble for this

    Oh,yes, she’ll talk to them again. She can’t exist without microphone available to broadcast her inanities. Amazing that Tapper risked his career by asking her a real question, tho’ I suppose even CNN gets tired of her continuous mindless statements.

    Good Job Jack Tapper it’s exactly what a journalist is supposed to do. This as AOC put it that they are only supposed to ask simple questions so to make them look good. Well AOC all questions are supposed to be directly to the point of the issue equally to everyone and not to expect any journalists to be politically correct and and icing cote if for you and the Democratic Party and liberals then get out of the big man/women world. Go back where you belong being a waitress if they would let you back anywhere in America because they have way more class then you do know by a long shot.

    She couldn’t answer these questions because these questions were not on her list she can only answer what’s on her list other than that she’s too damn stupid to know anyting it’s time for you to get your history book ocasio-cortez and start reading because you are a dumb idiot every time you open your mouth you stick your foot in it but that’s what happens when you have an idiot and to top it off she is a congresswoman she should know better

    I beg to differ. A sack of Hammers have more metal than Ocasio-Cortez will ever have. Canned Skunk would be her best food for the thoughts she has that resemble Nightmares.

    AOC was probably having group sex with her girlfriends as well as working at a restaurant during the Obama years! Calling the immigration places concentration camps is a slap in the face to those who were in those camps or lost people who were in those camps! The lesbian AOC sleeps with more women in a week than President Trump has slept with since he married Marla Maples in the 90s! One thing AOC and President Trump have in common is that they both love to sleep with women!

  33. Eliot

    July 2, 2019 at 1:31 am

    Pimp? Thing is, AOC is a lesbian and does NOT sleep with guys! She does sleep with many women! Cenk Uygur is a lowlife POS and he’s a bigtime homosexual! Uygur sleeps with many men, i.e. Jeremy Corbyn, Louis Farrakhan, Roger Waters, Marc Lamont-Hill, Marc Ruffalo and John Cusack to name a few!

  34. Ruby Howell

    AOC is so uninformed on the issues at least the true facts of those issues. To me she really makes her fellow Hispanics look they are not smart enough to get the actual facts on any issues. She has not figured out the cost & practical time table of her” New Green Deal”. No common sense to be able to figure things out practically!

  35. Camille Gilliam

    July 2, 2019 at 4:09 am

    Part of the reason she has trouble is she has been brain-washed on what to say. I don’t know what the guy’s name is but her brother signed her up to go try out to run for this seat. they are in control of her and what she says.

    Even idiots like Tapper can stumble over real journalism from time to time, maybe if CNN could do this about 1100% more of the time then maybe, just maybe, they could start to be called a Real News Network again- I won’t hold my breath though because I am sure Tapper got a call from HR right after this fiasco!

    Not to mention the DNCs strongly worded letter.

    As for AOC- she will defiantly be back because- she needs/desires attention far more than dignity!

  37. Shelly

    July 2, 2019 at 6:59 am

    I don’t know who screwed up: AOC for plain lying to save face or Tapper for challenging America’s little “morally-correct” sweetheart. AOC is making outrageous claims. The border patrol needs to investigate her claims thoroughly to see if they are true. If they aren’t (which I suspect they aren’t because who can trust a proven liar that cannot tolerate being held accountable for her actions?), they need to sue the living crap out of this little girl for slander. These congress women particularly are not being corrected or reprimanded. If they think they can get away with it, they’ll take it a step further next time.

She has as much experience as a parking lot attendant in a Nuclear facility and she has about as many brains for the job she holds as a Toad! This woman is Narcisstic and self centered! She actually thinks she has anything to contribute that makes sense! PUT this woman out and bolt the door behind her before she hurts herself and others! This woman is still wet behind the ears! Help her!! She is as Blind as a bat backing into a blizzard!

    Jake Tapper was being true to decent journalism when he asked the question of AO Cortez.
    I believe that she went onto CNN expecting to be treated like the darling she believes she is….and definitely is not. It was a very pertinent question, since she’s taken an opportunity to vilify President Trump, the Border Patrol/Immigration holding facilities, and the fact that she raised a rumpus about a matter I believe her experiences had never touched upon. She bad-mouthed the fresh water and toilet facilities without any prior knowledge that the plumbing to each function is separate and distinct.Yet, her ignorance demanded her to bear false witness about it, which was further proven by visiting clergy to the same detention center, who witnessed that functions were separate, and not as Cortez represented. As an elected Representative to government, she lacks responsibility and let’s her mouth run before her brain engages. She will remain unqualified to sit in the House of Representatives.

  52. Aline

Another CNN person she’d go on is Maria Cardona because Cardona participates in the orgy with AOC and Ashleigh Banfield! Also participating in this subversive orgy are Ariel Gold, Angela Davis, Sonny Hostin, Michelle Goldberg, Amber Phillips, Jen Mendoza and Nathaly Ariola!

    I have to say I am a little shocked that Cnn still knows how to ask a real question without giving out the proper answer first like they did with Hillary against her debate with Sanders in 2015. But I guess they are kind of like a broken watch. the watch is correct at least twice a day. But I think the little racist liar will still go to CNN, because they are the Democrats personal lap dogs. He will just get a scolding for his honest question and then his leash will be taken off again to continue their outright intension of dividing with more of their fear mongering lies

Jim Acosta just made one mistake that has Trump seeing red

Published

on

Fake news CNN’s Chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta is no stranger to being in the spotlight.

He has made a career out of attacking Trump on national television.

But now Jim Acosta made one mistake that has Trump seeing red.

President Trump has been proactive during the outbreak of the coronavirus, giving the American people daily briefings so they can stay up-to-date with accurate information on what the government is doing to fight the virus.

This is increasingly important for Trump to do while the Fake News Media is spending all of their time fear mongering and using the pandemic to play political games and attacking Trump.

During Trump’s recent briefing, he asked Dr. Deborah Birx to establish a timeline of events for the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. Birx has been able to provide real information about what is happening with the coronavirus and she began her time by reassuring Americans that what the Trump administration is doing to fight the virus is working.

She continued, “I will remind you that on February 3rd, the head of the WHO said there was no reason to ever do a travel ban. It wasn’t until January 14th that we knew that there was human-to-human transmission . . .”

But Dr. Birx was interrupted by CNN’s Jim Acosta who shouted, “Dr. Birx, the president was saying this was going to go away. It’s April.”

President Trump was furious Acosta had flat-out interrupted Dr. Birx mid-sentence and stepped in to say, “It is going away. I said it was going away and it is going away.”

Following Acosta’s obscene behavior, Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley blasted Acosta in a tweet that identified a “press pandemic” in America.

Many Americans think Acosta crossed a line interrupting Dr. Birx.

Turley’s criticism is fair when looking at what fake news CNN and the rest of the media elites have been doing since the outbreak of coronavirus in the U.S.

They have done nothing but fear-monger to Americans, and now that they have the country hyperventilating around the clock, they are playing politics to attack President Trump.

Do you agree with Jonathan Turley? Does America have a “press pandemic” from fake news CNN and media elites spreading fear and playing politics instead of delivering facts and information?

Ted Cruz shut down The Washington Post with one massive reality check

Published

on

The Fake News Media once again failed American during the coronavirus outbreak.

So called journalists popped champagne corks over the ability to blame President Trump for the Chinese virus.

And Ted Cruz just shut down The Washington Post with one massive reality check.

The media is celebrating every bit of bad economic news that rolls in as the government lockdown to combat the coronavirus sends millions to the unemployment line.

Washington Post “fact checker” Glen Kessler relished the idea of the economy – which Donald Trump regularly touted – turning sour and being a weak point in the re-election campaign.

Kessler wrote, “Line from Trump’s State of the Union address that did not age well: ‘Incredibly, the average unemployment rate under my administration is lower than any administration in the history of our country.’”

Ted Cruz slammed Kessler in a tweet by pointing out that the fake news hated the fact that President Trump oversaw an historic economic boom and now did back flips over a once in a century pandemic that deprived the President of this talking point.

This pandemic is showing just how much many journalists root against the country and hope the bottom falls out just because they hate President Trump.

So-called “journalists” are pulling off their masks and revealing that they are Democrats first and Americans second.

Pants on Fire News will keep you up-to-date on any new developments in this ongoing story.

CNN’s Jake Tapper flat-out refused to correct AOC when she was caught in this outrageous lie

Published

on

Members of Congress used to be known for only lying to their constituents back home.

And the media was once known as “the arbiter of truth” and an institution of trust and respect.

But that has all changed and now CNN’s Jake Tapper flat-out refused to correct AOC when she was caught in this outrageous lie.

CNN’s Jake Tapper has gone from being considered by some as a respected, impartial journalist to just another left-wing hack who can lie and promote the Left’s with the best of them.

Tapper recently admitted that he allowed Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to blatantly lie about President Trump during a recent interview.

AOC said during the interview, “The beds and the capacity that we need in this country. And we’re hearing it every step of the way from this administration. First, we were hearing that it’s a hoax, then we were hearing that everything was fine.”

This all stemmed from earlier false press reports claiming the President called coronavirus a hoax. The claims were quickly disproven and even corrected by most news outlets.

But clearly not by CNN.

Tapper later even admitted he knew it was a lie from AOC, but chose not to say anything.

“I thought about it, because the president did not call the virus a hoax.” Tapper said.

Tapper went further in trying to deflect from the Congresswoman’s lie by simply accusing the president of being a liar.

“I guess that’s the problem with a politician who lies so often. While I agree that Democrats are mischaracterizing what he said, what he did say was also false so it’s tough to justify taking the time for a fact check when it’s not taking a stand defining the truth,” Jake added.

So, in other words, because Tapper doesn’t like the president and personally believes Donald Trump lies often, he decided not to correct a blatant lie on his show.

This disregard for the truth is so widespread by the media now, Tapper’s decision didn’t receive much coverage.

There was a time not so long ago when ploys like this would have cost a reporter his job.

But we have moved far past that time in history.

The Trump era may go down in history as the time that journalism died its last death.
