Another embarrassing moment from Jake Tapper and CNN to try to trash Trump, or get their guests to do it, backfired in spectacular fashion today.
Gavin Newsom was on Jake’s show and talked about the fight against the outbreak.
As the interview was ending Tapper asked a leading question in a shameless attempt to get Newsom to trash Trump.
It backfired and instead, Newsom praised Trump.
“Let me just be candid with you. I’d be lying to you to say that Trump hasn’t been responsive to our needs,” he started.
“He has. And so, as a question, as a sort of an offer of objectivity, I have to acknowledge that publicly.”
“The fact is that every time I have called the president, he has quickly gotten on the line.”
“When we asked to get support for that mercy ship in southern California, he was able to direct that in real-time.”
“We’ve got 2,000 of these field medical sites, that are up, almost all operational now in the state, because of his support, and those are the facts,” Newsom added.
It backfired. https://t.co/QteYdJjNBq
