CNN just got owned by their own Charlottesville Panel set up to discuss President Trump’s reaction to the Charlottesville violence. Very fake news (to use the POTUS’ parlance) outlet CNN’s host Alisyn Camerota got destroyed by the six people brought on to most-probably criticize President Trump, as the segment did not play out the way CNN envisioned from the get-go.
When Alisyn Camerota asked the CNN Panel who was disturbed by the President Trump’s response to the Charlottesville violence, absolutely zero hands were raised. This was an early warning that things will not go CNN’s way. One panelist argued that the President’s response, which was described as controversial by the mainstream media, the one about violence on both sides being to blame for Charlottesville tragedy, is correct:
“I didn’t see anything wrong with it. I mean he addressed the problem. Let’s face reality, there are problems on both sides. I think it’s ridiculous to have me choose between Hitler and Stalin which is what I consider both groups are. The Antifa group to me is totally a very Stalin-ish kind of group. If you’re willing to set fires and burn places to the ground, that doesn’t seem like a very peaceful group to me.”
Another surprising response from the Panelists arrived when the host asked them to comment on the POTUS’ assertion that not all people protesting in Charlottesville were violent thugs, Nazis, KKK, Antifa and so forth and so on:
“It hasn’t been investigated so we don’t really know who was out there. But I’m telling you, I’ve seen videos of other people who were out there who were not neo-Nazis.”
Finally, one of the panelists slammed mainstream media’s obvious bias with regard to refusing to cover the violence purported by Antifa and BLM:
“That’s the night before the clash happened. The Antifa people didn’t show up Friday night, they showed up Saturday. They came there to do battle. They showed up with helmets, body armor, clubs… They showed up with ballons filled with urine. The media is not covering it. They’re only focused on making neo-Nazis and white supremacists out to be Trump supporters. He said there was trouble on both sides. Was there not trouble on both sides? I saw bats on both sides.”
