A US State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus completely shutdown a far-left CNN International anchor with three facts that left the CNN anchor speechless.
The cocky CNN anchor, Becky Anderson, was either completely ignorant of what she was reporting on or flat out lying. However, this is CNN who also on Tuesday evening lied about the President’s activity after the missile attack so both could be true.
Here’s a partial transcript:
Fact number 1
CNN: The United States does seem to be almost completely isolated when it comes to its position on Iran at present. U.S. allies in Europe, in the Middle East where I am, and in Asia are calling for de-escalation or are virtually silent. There is almost no support for U.S. actions. Where are America’s allies at this point?
ORTAGUS: With all due respect that is just another completely inaccurate observation. You could look at the E3 statement this morning that was put out by the Germans, the British, and the French.
Later Ortagus circled back to this:
ORTAGUS: Your audience should know and should go back and read the E3 statement put out by the Germans, the French, the British that contradicts what you just said to me, because it completely contradicts you.
Anderson was speechless.
Here is what the actual E3 statement says.
The second fact that embarrassed the news anchor was when Anderson tried to inject fake news claiming that E3 allies want to de-escalate and that President Trump doesn’t appear to de-escalate with Iran.
Ortagus destroyed her….
ORTAGUS: We [meaning the United States] have talked about the need for de-escalation. We have called for a peaceful resolution. The president has consistently said that he does not want a war, that we believe we can solve our differences bilaterally. There are two things this president has consistently said since the beginning of his administration: that he wants peace, that he doesn’t want war, and that Iran will not get a nuclear weapon. Those two things are not mutually inconsistent.
Number three occurred when Anderson tried to make it sound like Ortagus was lying because Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he was disappointed by what our allies have said.
CNN: Hold on. Hold on a minute. Mike Pompeo said he was disappointed with the Europeans’ reaction. What did he mean by that?
ORTAGUS: He said that on Friday night, and there’s a brand-spanking-new statement this morning from the E3 that we’re quite pleased with, and that you can go and Google right now.
And then there was just silence and it was amazing, CNN is such a joke.
