CNN Defends 2016 Hypocrisy: Of Course Dems Accepted the Election Outcomes!

After White Home Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany enraged reporters (and their liberal mates) by calling out their hypocrisy in refusing to just accept the 2016 election outcomes, CNN huffed hours later that McEnany was fallacious. 

Throughout Friday’s State of affairs Room, correspondent Boris Sanchez huffed, “The White Home is desperately spinning Trump’s refusal to concede,” earlier than taking part in only a brief snippet of the press secretary’s smackdown the place she stated that Trump’s election was “by no means accepted.”

Sanchez fact-checked McEnany by mentioning actions from Clinton and Obama: “Actually, Hillary Clinton known as Trump to concede hours after he was declared President-Elect. President Obama invited him to the White Home simply days later,” Sanchez smugly famous, because the chyron learn, “WH baselessly claims Trump ‘by no means given an orderly transition of energy.’”

 

 

Just some minutes later, CNN was nonetheless mad and “desperately spinning” their 2016 actions. Host Wolf Blitzer and political commentator Bakari Sellers additionally touted the Obamas’ actions:

SELLERS: Donald Trump didn’t win this election and there are not any parallels between now and 2016. Hillary Clinton known as him and conceded the race. Barack Obama invited him to the White Home. Joe Biden invited Mike Pence to the naval observatory. Michelle Obama spoke to Melania Trump. All of this stuff occurred…

BLITZER: And President Obama instantly ordered the transition to start, the transition of energy and Basic Companies Administration to start working with the incoming staff instantly. It was fairly a distinct scenario as it’s proper now.

How handy for CNN to dismantle this straw man they constructed. Nowhere do any of those journalists point out any of examples the press secretary truly cited in her takedown, such because the liberal media’s dogged pursuit to show Russia colluded with the Trump marketing campaign and thus his election was illegitimate. They didn’t attempt to defend the Democrat congressmen and ladies who boycotted Trump’s inauguration, nor Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren’s obstruction feedback or President Obama pursuing the Logan Act (click on “develop”):

[I]t’s price remembering, this president was by no means given an orderly transition of energy. His presidency was by no means accepted. Actually, earlier than the election — his election, we all know Crossfire Hurricane was launched by Peter Strzok to pursue a baseless allegations [sic] in regards to the President’s ties with Russia….You had 70 lawmakers say we’re not coming to his inauguration, Democratic lawmakers. You had Elizabeth Warren saying we’re going to hinder the Trump transition by urging the Authorities Accountability Workplace to analyze the incoming Trump transition.

In January of that yr, you will have President Obama having a “by-the-book” assembly the place they talked in regards to the Logan Act — utilizing that act to go after Lieutenant Basic Michael Flynn…many sought to undermine him, discredit him, delegitimize him, and deny him his victory. There have been no requires unity. There have been no requires therapeutic…

The reality is the media and plenty of Democrats didn’t settle for Donald Trump gained the 2016 election and right here’s a roundup of despairing quotes from journalists on the time proving that. 

Hillary Clinton could have conceded the day after the election, however she spent years afterwards complaining to journalists about how Trump was an illegitimate president. And reporters repeated her claims. Actually, they had been nonetheless indulging Clinton’s delusions as not too long ago as this yr, when ABC correspondent Linsey Davis consoled Clinton with the promise that she “actually gained” the 2016 election.
