If you've never watched CNN's Brian Stelter...be glad because the guy is s complete tool.
Recently in an interview, he thought that he would be able to take on President Trump's lawyer Jenna Ellis. Boy was he wrong. It wasn't long before he realized that he had bitten off more than he could chew.
Stelter tried to say that President Trump abused his power in the Oval Office by bashing Comcast the parent company to NBC and MSNBC.
Then Stelter quoted a former Obama aid thinking because he thought that somehow this would lend some credibility to his argument, but Ellis was having no part of it and not standing down on his absurd claims.
Stelter tries cutting her off and ultimately what ended up happening is that they just turned her mic down to let Stelter could dominate the conversation. But it didn't help Ellis still came out on top.
Stelter: Let’s put on screen what Norm Eisen told me. Norm was an Obama White House aid specializing in ethics, he’s now at the Brookings Institution. He said: “It's an abuse of power for an American president to use the awesome authority of the Oval Office to target an American company. He said it's even worse – [Jenna Ellis begins talking and Stelter continues] – Because here he is retaliating against the exercise of the First Amendment-protected constitutional rights.”
Ellis: I've heard “abuse of power” before. That was with the whole fake news, impeachment hoax that's what you guys charged during –
Stelter: You guys?
Ellis: -- that's what you guys peddled and what the House charged was that false abuse of power. This isn't an abuse of power –
Stelter: And Eisen was involved in that.
Ellis: -- this President Trump as an American citizen having an opinion on really bad service that's entirely okay.
Stelter: (talking over Ellis): When the President’s telling people to punish – He actually called out MSNBC and NBC News. So, he was linking it to his distaste for news coverage. Again, that is so far beyond the pale for American presidents.
Ellis: He has an opinion.
Stelter: Right, but do you understand how aberrant that is in American history.
Ellis: He is also a citizen. No, he's the first one to actually use -- to use his platform as an American citizen to be able to call out the fake news media and say because you are peddlers of false information --
Stelter: You understand that like someday you're going to regret this, right?
Ellis: -- you for the last three and a half years --
Stelter: Someday you're going to regret this when your kids –
Ellis: No, I’m standing up for truth.
Stelter: -- and grandkids look back at this and you use slurs and smears --
Ellis: Oh, now you’re going to the personal attacks.
Stelter: -- like fake news to hurt news outlets.
Ellis: That’s when you know you lost the debate, Brian.
Ellis: You can't even come on facts and truth--
Stelter (once again talking over Ellis): I think in 10 or 20 years if we just sit down and talk about this, you'll recognize how damaging it was. How damaging it was to use terms like fake news, to attack journalists who are trying to do their jobs.
Ellis: In 15 or 20 years -- you're not trying to do your job. You're not a journalist, Brian. You're an activist. That's the problem. You have an agenda, and your agenda is anti-Trump. The American people see through that and they and they are very grateful. This president is finally holding the fake news media accountable because you're activists. You're not reporting fact and truth. You won't even say that as a journalist --
Stelter: The reason I think it's helpful to have these conversations --
Ellis: -- that a factually false statement shouldn't ever appear in a media outlet.
Stelter: -- folks have gotten used to alternative realities and I think it's important we see there are alternative realities.
And Jenna, I appreciate you coming on to talk with me.
