Over the last few years as President Trump and Project Veritas have been working to expose CNN for being a worthless, shady organization that fabricates news stories and distorts the truth about anything conservative, CNN's ratings have been continually plummeting.
Their ratings are so bad in fact, that they just tried doing something new that they've never done before to try and boost ratings, but it backfired in their faces.
They brought a white nationalist on CNN to talk about Trump.
CNN was wanting him to talk about how racists "love" President Trump in order to try and make his supporters (people like us) look bad, but things didn't quite go the way that they had planned. Instead, he said that President Trump doesn’t do anything for white supremacists.
Their guest white nationalist, Richard Spencer, said that Trump wasn’t racist enough and instead criticized Trump on not being racist at all.
“Many white nationalists will eat up this red meat that Donald Trump is throwing out there,” Spencer said. “I am not one of them. I recognize the con game that is going on.
“He gives us nothing, outside of racist tweets,” Spencer continued. “And by racist tweets, I mean tweets that are meaningless and cheap, and express the kind of sentiments you might hear from your drunk uncle while he’s watching Hannity.”
Spencer is an open white nationalist who advocates for “peaceful ethnic cleansing.” Spencer was a key player and featured speaker at Unite the Right, the 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a neo-Nazi murdered an anti-racist protester. (Spencer is currently being sued over the event.) Open neo-Nazi groups like the Traditionalist Worker Party have provided security at his events. He has repeatedly invoked Nazi slogans and imagery, including calling media the “lügenpresse” ("lying press") and leading a Hitler-type salute of Trump. Spencer is so racist he is banned from most countries in Europe.
Indeed, Spencer shared the CNN segment on his Twitter account shortly after it aired.
“The CNN anchors didn't understand that Spencer was trying to position Trump as a moderate and to mock other white supremacists who supported Trump,” said Joan Donovan, director of the Technology and Social Change Project at Harvard University’s Shorenstein Center. “Spencer was saying that Trump was performing racism on Twitter, but that his policies do not go far enough to be considered support for white supremacists goals.” (Daily Beast)
