CNN, NBC PUNDITS DEFEND AL FRANKEN OVER GROPING SCANDAL

“Not actually groping, but mock-groping”

 | Infowars.com – NOVEMBER 17, 2017

Mainstream media pundits on both CNN and NBC defended Senator Al Franken after a photo emerged of him groping a woman, with CNN’s Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger pardoning the behavior bechttps://www.mrctv.org/videos/cnn-panel-brushes-aside-franken-allegations-knock-moore-he-was-just-comedianause Franken “was just a comedian”.

TV host and sports broadcaster Leeann Tweeden accused Franken of groping her while she slept during a December 2006 USO tour to entertain the U.S. military, and provided photo evidence to prove it.

“I felt violated all over again. Embarrassed. Belittled. Humiliated,” wroteTweeden. “How dare anyone grab my breasts like this and think it’s funny?”

In a separate incident, Tweeden said Franken tried to kiss her as part of a rehearsal for a skit and “aggressively stuck his tongue” in her mouth.

During an appearance on CNN’s Newsroom yesterday, Borger defended Franken by emphasizing how, “Leeann (Tweeden) did not call for him to step down or say he ought to step down.”

“He was not a member of the Congress at the time this occurred,” she added. “He was just a comedian.”

Borger went on to say that “Franken has no effect on her at this particular time in her life,” an odd statement given that Tweeden herself literally wrote yesterday, “I’m still angry at what Al Franken did to me.”

The CNN pundit then tried to deflect by demanding the focus be kept on Roy Moore and Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, over on NBC, corespondent and #MeToo supporter Kasie Hunt struck a similar tone, claiming that the infamous photo shows Franken, “not actually groping, but mock-groping her while she was asleep.”

As Chris Menahan observes, “Notice how Hunt completely ignored how Franken shoved his vomit-inducing tongue into her mouth?”

“Why did she leave that out when that was the main focus of the story? Why did she leave that out — twice — and instead only mention she was “uncomfortable” having to “rehearse” his skit?”

In another clip, Hunt again describes the incident as “mock groping,” despite the fact that Tweeden herself said Franken groped her breasts.

Hunt’s defense of Franken comes after she tweeted support for victims of sexual assault with the #MeToo hashtag just a month ago.

The reaction of both Hunt and Borger to Franken’s groping scandal again underscores the left’s rampant hypocrisy when it comes to sexual assault.

When the alleged victim is abused at the hands of a Republican, as in the case of Roy Moore, the media demands that the accuser be automatically believed.

However, in the case of a Democrat – with Bill Clinton being the biggest example – the victims are trashed and the abuse is downplayed or outright rejected altogether.

REMINDER: CNN SPONSORED A TRUMP ASSASSINATION PLAY

Yet it complains about ‘violent’ POTUS wrestling tweet

Steve Watson | Infowars.com – JULY 3, 2017

CNN is complaining about President Trump ‘inciting violence’ by tweeting out a meme video in which he is seen ‘clotheslining’ the news network. Yet this is the same network that literally gave money to a play which depicted the President being repeatedly STABBED TO DEATH.

Trump tweeted out the following video Sunday, which is from a past Wrestlemania, in which then reality TV star Trump was involved in the shenanigans.

Someone (not Trump himself) stuck a CNN logo onto WWE owner Vince McMahon’s head – the message being that Trump is fighting back against CNN.

Is it funny? That depends on your sense of humor. Is it unpresidential? Again, that’s for you to decide. Is it a call for violence against journalists? According to CNN it is.

CNN’s fake news king Brian Stelter complained:

“The early reactions in the last 90 minutes have ranged from this is juvenile, ridiculous, idiotic, or wait no it’s just funny. He’s just having fun. Wait, no it’s actually scary, dangerous.”

‘It is a sad day when the president of the United States encourages violence against reporters.” Stelter noted.

His panel described the tweet as ‘fascist,’ before he mused that it may constitute ‘hate speech’ and ‘incitement to violence’ and probably violates Twitter’s terms of service – it doesn’t.

Screen Shot 2017-07-03 at 2.45.31 PM

This is an appropriate time to remind Americans that last month, CNN’s parent company, Time Warner, sponsored a public theater production of Julius Caesar, which saw Donald Trump as the protagonist being brutally murdered night after night on stage with fake blood spraying everywhere.

Screen Shot 2017-07-03 at 2.48.21 PM

Somehow, according to CNN, that doesn’t count as inciting violence – in fact CNN host Fareed Zakaria called it a ‘masterpiece’.

Screen Shot 2017-07-03 at 2.49.18 PM

Of course, this is far from the sole instance of media-driven depictions violence against Trump:

CNN had to fire Kathy Griffin for beheading an effigy of Trump.

CNN pushed the possibility of Trump being assassinated on Inauguration Day:

RUSSIA, RUSSIA, AND MORE RUSSIA. Mika: Hard Not to Think Trump in Some Sort of Russia “Scheme”

Did Mika not say that it was “their job to control what people think”

Published on Jun 22, 2017

On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski says it’s “hard not to think that” President Trump might be “in on some sort of scheme” regarding Russia.

Mika Mika Mika how much they pay you & Joe to be traitors? there was never any Russia ‘sceme’ just you muppets trying to prop it up with your BS…. give yourself an uppercut

InYourFace

This female is SO stupid she cannot figure out that it is the muslim marxist brotherhood demoncrat FAKE NARRATIVE driven by the HATRED FOR RUSSIA FOR DESTROYING ISIS. Fake Russia narrative has its source in the muslim jewish hatred for Russiahttp://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/specialseries/2017/05/isil-target-russia-170522095304580.html BUT americans appear awfully stupid since if they replaced the word russia with muslim they would in fact have the name of their only real enemy and they are certainly within destroying your house and the pharisee communists are helping them. Just look at the people who are attempting to impeach Trump. A jew and a muslim. The special council exists only because a jew decided that it was legal to appoint one on the basis of a ficticious memo that comey created to take revenge on Trump for firing him. Comey said just a few weeks ago that he was going to be the FBI director for the next 6.5 years. This is a WITCH HUNT.

Dennis Janda

MIKA how do you know what isn’t truth without verifying a source…Is that GOOD journalism ????….You’re a CREDIT to your profession or rating !!!!….CHOOSE ONE ?????

Simon Evans

Mika has lost it, she just doesn’t get it, the President represents the people, she does not.

Barbara Holbrook

Mika is a liar! A New World Order player!! liar!!

Peter George

This is the lady who openly said that it was “their job to control what people think” – everything she says is thus tainted by her and her bosses agendas.  They are just another version of the fake CNN – don’t even bother to tune in to their show any more.

GOP REP. & MSNBC: ‘TRUMP PARTIALLY TO BLAME’ FOR SHOOTING

Morning Joe hosts blame ‘heated rhetoric, fake news and conspiracy theorists’

Steve Watson | Infowars.com – JUNE 15, 2017

A Republican Congressman appeared on MSNBC Thursday morning and claimed that the President is ‘partially to blame’ for yesterday’s shooting attack on a congressional baseball practice.

Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.), who is a member of the Committee on Homeland Security, told the hosts of Morning Joe “I would argue the president has unleashed, partially, again not in anyway totally, but partially to blame for the demons that have been unleashed.”

Sanford then attempted to blame the shooting, enacted by an unhinged Bernie Sanders supporter, on Trump’s presidential campaign.

“The fact you have the top guy saying, I wish I can hit you in the face — why don’t you, and I’ll pay your legal fees…. That’s bizarre — we ought to call it as such,” Sanford said, referencing a tongue in cheek comment made by Trump during a campaign stop last year.

Sanford then complained that Americans at town hall meetings are acting “weird and different,” hurling abuse at each other because of Trump’s behavior.

“What I’ve said back home, some of these people have been frankly weird and different in a town hall meeting. I say what is going on. They’ll say look, if the guy at the top can say anything to anybody at any time, why can’t I?” The Congressman claimed.

“I was at a town hall meeting — it was at a senior center, at a retirement center — and what took place in terms of what people were saying to each other was like out of a movie, and so we’ve got to find a way to dial this back,” Sanford said.

Sanford then attempted to steer the conversation toward restricting free speech.

“I think we all need to look for ways to learn from what happened yesterday and to say, wait a minute, this is a pause moment. What might I do a little differently in the way I reached out to other members.” he said.

“I think we have to watch out as a society because, if we don’t watch out, civility is indeed a part of civilized government and an open political system,” said Sanford. “If you let these forces play out, I think we end up at a very, very bad spot. I think what happened yesterday was symptomatic of it.” Sanford added.

In typical fashion, Morning Joe co-hosts Scarborough and Brzezinski also attempted to blame the shooting on Trump, and what they described as “fake news” on the internet and social media.

“I think, very carefully, we have to talk about the added dynamic here because you have the right and left, the extremes on the right and the left,” Brzezinski said. “You have fake news, you have conspiracy theorists who are really muddying the waters, and we have become desensitized.”

“We also have a president who pushes fake news and conspiracy theories, from birtherism to promoting violence on the campaign trail — this is the new dynamic here,” Brzezinski exclaimed. “I’m not putting anything squarely on the president, but I have to say that this is the new added dynamic to what is a very dangerous climate.”

The MSNBC hosts are blaming Trump and the alternative media, and completely ignoring their own fake news output and obsessive relentless anti-Trump, anti-GOP rhetoric.

The shooting was carried out by a leftist who was clearly radicalized by the incessant mainstream media obsession with painting the President as a tyrant and hyping conspiracy theories about collusion with Russia when officials have testified under oath that there is zero evidence of such occurrences.
