Dem Governor Makes CNN’s Tapper Look Like A Fool & Blows Up Media Narrative With Facts
This whole week the media and Washington Democrats have been trying to change history claiming that the President should have acted sooner against the Chinese coronavirus. They have also pushed the fake news that the President is punishing states that don’t say nice things about him.
On Wednesday night, California Governor Gavin Newsom blew that narrative out of the water and made CNN’s Jake Tapper look like a fool. Tapper was trying to get Newsom to admit that he’s really only being nice to President Trump because if he doesn’t the president would withhold aid from his state. But Newsom was very clear he’s praising the President because he deserves it and has been responsive to all their needs.
Tapper said, “I’ve talked to officials around the country who have said that they have to temper their remarks in what they say about the federal government’s response for fear that President Trump will punish the citizens of their state if he considers them to be a complainer. You and President Trump seemed to have been working collaboratively. He praised you yesterday. Do you find yourself, by necessity, tempering what you say in terms of any issue you might have with the federal response?”
When Newsom responded he also brought up that he and the President had already worked together during the horrible wildfires and droughts.
“This is not the time to bicker. I don’t care who’s up and down, whose polls are looking better than someone else’s or who wants to run for president or who doesn’t. When it comes to times of crisis, we need to [rise] above the partisanship and I’ve extended always an open hand, not a closed fist, in those circumstances. And this is no different,” Newsom told Tapper.
“But let me just be candid with you. I’d be lying to you to say that he hasn’t been responsive to our needs. He has,” the governor continued. “And so, as a question, as a sort of an offer of objectivity, I have to acknowledge that publicly.”
Newsom continued: “And the fact is every time I’ve called the president, he’s quickly gotten on the line. […] Those are the facts.”
“We always want more, I can criticize this or that, at the end of the day, we’re just trying to focus on developing a relationship of trust as a matter of course because there [are] just too many Americans, 40 million that live in this state that deserve us to get together and get along,” he added.
