VIDEO: CNN Makes Supercut Of Trump Mocking People Suffering From Illnesses
CNN’s John Avlon highlighted on Monday during his “Reality Check” segment the “karmic twist” of President Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis with a supercut of the times Trump tried to use his Democratic opponents’ health as a political weapon.
- Avlon wished Trump & other WH officials a “speedy recovery, but added: ”It’s a karmic twist, because Trump has deployed the politics of sickness in this campaign & the last, trying to stir rumors that his democratic opponents were seriously ill.”
- The segment then cuts to a clip of Trump mocking Hillary Clinton’s pneumonia in 2016: “Here’s a woman, she’s supposed to fight all of these different things and she can’t make it 15 feet to her car! Give me a break.”
- Avlon also noted that Trump has repeatedly raised questions about Joe Biden’s mental status in the current election, including his baseless allegation that Biden is taking performance-enhancing drugs to beat him in debates.
