  • FLASHBACK: CNN's Cillizza Lectured Trump on Being Wrong on Carter Page FISA Warrant

    There were many news outlets and people hyping the validity of the FISA warrant on Carter Page based on the now-officially-discredited Christopher Steele dossier. However, few defended it with more fervor than CNN's Chris Cillizza as he lectured President Donald Trump how wrong, wrong, WRONG he was for daring to cast aspersions on that FISA warrant. This is one instance in which it is an absolute must to not only read the transcript of Cillizza's July 23, 2018 lecture on CNN Newsroom but also to watch the video because it reveals via body language and, especially, the tone of righteous...
  • Donald Trump now has an obvious path to a second term

    (CNN)The latest economic numbers -- 266,000 jobs created in November, unemployment at a 50-year low -- make one thing very clear: President Donald Trump has a path to win a second term next year. Yes, you can quibble about whether the strong November report or the upward revisions in job gains for the last two months or the broader upswing in the economy is due to Trump and his policies. But what we know -- both from our political history and more recent polling -- is that presidents get credit when the economy is strong and blame when it is...

    VIDEO With Kamala Harris dropping out of the presidential race due to her failed candidacy, it is easy to forget how much of the media was, until recently, hyping her as The One to take down Trump. This video presents a compilation of funny clips of the media gushing like children over Harris.

    Some media are already describing the president as the oldest one in American history—without mentioning that some of the presidential hopefuls trying to unseat him are even older The giddy, hysterical, over the top media response to President Donald Trump’s supposed “unplanned” visit to Walter Reed National Medical Center on Saturday is, more than anything else, proof of the impeachment-obsessed Democrats’ attempt to force the OTHER SHOE to drop—a loud shoe drop—the Democrats sorely need to replace the failing LIVE Adam Schiff Impeachment Show ASAP. Any hour now House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will replace her recent charge that “Trump’s an...

    President Donald Trump visited Walter Reed Army Medical Center on Saturday, and according to CNN, a person "familiar with the matter" claims the visit "did not follow the protocol of a routine presidential medical exam."I was about to say that this White House leaks like a sieve, but that would be unfair to sieves, which are supposed to filter out at least a few things. That's no slight on Trump, by the way. There literally aren't enough true loyalists in D.C. to staff the White House without letting in a bunch of leakers. But does this particular leaker have...
  • CNN's Chris Cillizza Concerned That Beto O'Rourke Did Republicans a Favor on Guns

    Stop being so transparent about your desire to confiscate guns, Beto. All you do is help the Republicans. That was the concern of CNN's Chris Cillizza on Friday in "Beto O'Rourke just did Republicans a massive favor on guns." According to Cillizza, O'Rourke by announcing that he wants gun confiscation, is validating what conservatives have been claiming has been the true goal of Democrats and the left. This has Cillizza frustrated especially when looking at the 2020 election and how it provides ammunition (pun intended) to the Republicans about the ultimate goal of Democrats.

    We had Rasohomon the movie in which the same scene is presented several different ways depending on the point of view of the performers. And now we have the political version of Rashomon, in the form of the the Department of Justice Inspector General report, according to the CNN's overly imaginative Chris Cillizza, which was highly critical of former FBI Director James Comey. For Cillizza the facts clearly stated in the IG report really depends on the political viewpoint of whoever is reading it. Let us now join Chris Chillizza's August 29 production of Rashomon political theater, "The new James Comey report proves whatever...

    So who won the first Democrat debate in Detroit? Well,  CNN's Chris Cillizza has a very surprising answer that will shock (and depress) many.  According to Cillizza, it was Donald Trump.  Of course, he had a list of other winners (and losers) as well but that was the pick that stood out. He presented that surprising choice in his July 31 "Winners and losers from the first night of the CNN debate."

    (CNN)In his first 869 days as President, Donald Trump said 10,796 things that were either misleading or outright false, according to The Washington Post's Fact Checker. Do the math and you get this: The President of the United States is saying 12 untrue things a day. Which is a lot! But it's also hard to wrap your head around how much lying or, uh, misleading that actually is. So, think about it this way: Trump is lying more every day than a majority of Americans wash their hands. According to data from The Soap and Detergent Association (yes, this is...

    Donald Trump is not someone who accepts losing. Whether in his decades in the business world or his second career as a politician -- and President -- his career is marked with a refusal to acknowledge when he has come up short. He appeared triumphant after declaring bankruptcy. He touted his victory after a Republican Congress failed to fully repeal the Affordable Care Act. He said, without evidence, he would have won the 2016 popular vote if 3 to 5 million illegal votes had not been cast. And on and on it goes. Which brings us to Wednesday morning --...

    Allan Lichtman doesn't mind swimming against the political tide. Lichtman, a professor at American University in Washington, DC, was the most prominent voice predicting Donald Trump's victory in the run-up to the 2016 election. When Trump won, it marked the 9th(!) straight presidential election where Lichtman had correctly predicted the Electoral College winner. (That's all the way back to 1984, for you math wizards.) In short: Lichtman is someone the political world should listen to. So I reached out to him on Tuesday to see what he thought of Trump's current chances at a second term next November. Here's what...

    (CNN) — Attorney General William Barr did two strange things between the time he received special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election and when he released it to Congress and the public. The first came on March 24 when, two days after receiving the Mueller report, Barr released a four-page summary letter in which he made clear his conclusion that the report found no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians and that Mueller hadn't made any recommendation as to whether President Donald Trump should be charged with obstructing justice. The second came on...

    1. Wither Beto?: Beto O'Rourke came into the 2020 presidential race as the hottest thing in Democratic politics. He (almost) shocked the world by beating Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) and was immediately installed as a top-tier candidate. But the race hasn't turned out the way the former Texas congressman had hoped. Buttigieg has surged past him -- in polling and buzz -- and Beto seems at a bit of a loss as to how to (re)position himself in the race. Both The New York Times and The Washington Post have noted his struggles of late. And optics like this...

    In an interview in London for her new memoir "Becoming," former First Lady Michelle Obama delivered a stinging assessment of the state of American politics and, specifically, of President Donald Trump. Said Obama: "We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled. Sometimes you spend the weekend with divorced dad. That feels like fun but then you get sick. That is what America is going through. We are living with divorced dad." The Independent, which reported on Obama's comments, said she offered that assessment in a joking manner. But joking or not, there's some real truth in Obama's...

    Chris Cillizza's column at the CNN website is called "The Point" but it takes him many many words and paragraphs to finally get to The Point buried deep in his verbose musings about the Mueller Report. If you can actually make it to that Point, you would be surprised to find out that Cillizza, in stark contrast with most of his CNN colleagues as well as the rest of the mainstream media, sees the Mueller report as good news for Donald Trump. Before we get to his conclusion that threatens to turn the dome of his boss, Jeffrey Zucker, an even...

    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump was on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, just 36 hours removed from one of the best moments of his presidency: Attorney General Bill Barr announcing -- via a letter to Congress -- that special counsel Robert Mueller did not establish any conspiracy or coordination between the President's 2016 campaign and the Russian government. And yet, despite that clear political victory, Trump proved old habits die hard. He insisted the investigation, which was begun by the FBI and taken over by Mueller after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, was the result of some sort of targeted effort...

    The first two years of Donald Trump's presidency haven't exactly been filled with stellar ratings from the public. Trump's approval rating in Gallup has never -- not one time -- been above 50% since he was sworn into office. His overall job approval number in the Real Clear Politics' average is below 44%. Almost six in 10 people disapproved of how Trump has handled the Russia investigation in a CNN-SSRS poll last month. On and on it goes -- bad numbers following bad numbers, leaving the poll-obsessed Trump to cherry-pick a piece of data here and there that suggests he...

    Even as the 2020 race begins in earnest, President Donald Trump is already suggesting that Democrats cannot beat him fairly -- raising the specter that if he loses next November, he will suggest that the election was not legitimate. "The Democrats in Congress yesterday were vicious and totally showed their cards for everyone to see," Trump tweeted Tuesday, referring to House Democrats' launching of a broad-scale investigation into him. "When the Republicans had the Majority they never acted with such hatred and scorn! The Dems are trying to win an election in 2020 that they know they cannot legitimately win!"...
