Leftist Insanity: Bernstein Demands GOP Force Trump Out of Office

2
On Friday’s New Day, CNN co-host Alisyn Camerota and guest host Jim Sciutto brought on left-wing political analyst Carl Bernstein to make insane claims about President Trump, arguing he should be forced out of the White House. Performing his role as a Democratic activist, Bernstein declared Trump responsible for the worst “failure of leadership” by a President “in the history of America” and advised Republicans “to find another alternative to run as the Republican nominee for President.” The Watergate has-been started the tirade by claiming that the U.S. was experiencing “a presidential emergency”:     And at the same time, what we see happening is a presidential emergency, a national presidential emergency, failure of leadership, by a President of the United States such as we’ve never had in the history of America. And it’s time that the two political parties recognize this national emergency of a President of the United States who is pathologically, according to even members of his own family, Mary Trump, who wrote a book about her uncle, who is incapable of exercising the kind of leadership, responsible leadership that we need. We — instead we have an authoritarian out of control, unstable president according to those closest to him. Really? Trump is the worst “failure of leadership?” The U.S. did experience a Civil War which was enabled by a decade of presidents who did nothing to address the looming conflict. Furthermore, if Bernstein was not a partisan hack, he would say that Obama was perhaps the most “authoritarian” president in U.S. history. The list of scandals where Obama abused his power is quite long. He used the IRS to harass political opponents, lied about ObamaCare, had the FBI try to frame Trump for colluding with Russia, wiretapped journalists, oversaw the NSA spying on Americans, spied on Trump during his candidacy, and the list goes on. The use of Mary Trump’s book is also ridiculous, as none of her claims are verified and one has even been debunked. Bernstein then urged for Republicans to take control from Trump and to choose another presidential candidate: But what we need is something that’s happened with another dangerous president at a dangerous moment, Richard Nixon, but nothing like what we’ve seen now, but in the final days of Richard Nixon’s presidency, the great Republican leadership, led by Barry Goldwater and others, the Speaker of the House, the Majority Leader of the Senate, marched to the White House and told Nixon he had to leave office because of what he had done to undermine the national interests through his reckless and outrageous and illegal acts. Something similar is needed now if only the Republican leadership and other Republicans would go publicly and say to this president, all right, you want to stay through the rest of your term, but we are going to be a caretaker until this election and you must begin to act in the national interests. And, in fact, we would like to find another alternative to run as the Republican nominee for President of the United States. Bernstein clearly just hates Trump. As for Sciutto and Camerota, Sciutto agreed with Bernstein’s absurd statements by saying “wow” and Camerota asked him if he sees “President Trump as more dangerous than Richard Nixon and acting more recklessly?” Bernstein was happy to oblige to the ridiculous question: Absolutely. I don’t think there’s any question about Richard Nixon’s competence. He understood history. Watergate was a terrible abuse of power, the likes of which we had never seen, up — up until that time. This is a totally different situation. We have a President of the United States now who demonstrably is not capable or stable enough or understands the history or the principles of the United States to act responsibly in the national interests. Bernstein then continued his blathering nonsense: It’s time for the Republicans to act. That is what we need. We need them to protect — set up a guardrail to protect us from this president in the next three months….They understand the danger of this President of the United States and it’s damn pastime that some of them step up and say, we have to save the republic in these next few months, in this national emergency, because we are in a national presidential emergency and those guys know it….And it’s time that they take some action to protect the United States of America from this President of the United States of America. CNN is not a news network. It’s just a forum for whacked-out, far-left Democratic activists who hate Trump. This insane Democratic propaganda was brought to viewers by USAA. Let them know here what you think about them sponsoring such content.

He seems to be trying to find excuses to change the date or not accept the results. Let’s get “The Bottom Line” on this and so much more with CNN political analyst and famed Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein. Carl, great to see you. Before we get to what the President was tweeting or talking about, let’s just start with Congressman John Lewis’ funeral yesterday because just the visuals of three former presidents, all there together, all speaking, Republican and Democrats, while the current president decided to stay home and tweet. CARL BERNSTEIN (CNN POLITICAL ANALYST): What you saw yesterday were three presidents of the United States, all whose presidencies were flawed, some in major ways, but nonetheless presidents who understand the idea and history of America. What this country is, what it represents, particularly as represented by the principles of the great John Lewis, why they were there. And at the same time, what we see happening is a presidential emergency, a national presidential emergency, failure of leadership, by a President of the United States such as we’ve never had in the history of America. And it’s time that the two political parties recognize this national emergency of a President of the United States who is pathologically, according to even members of his own family, Mary Trump, who wrote a book about her uncle, who is incapable of exercising the kind of leadership, responsible leadership that we need. We — instead we have an authoritarian out of control, unstable president according to those closest to him. JIM SCIUTTO: Yeah, I — I know that there’s always a deluge of outrageous comments from this president and — and we have to take those with a grain of salt, but the one yesterday was unique, threatening or discussing delaying the election, a power he does not have, but — but as we’ve said on this broadcast before, part of a broader effort by this president to pre-delegitimize the results of the election. Republicans, as you — as you know, sitting Republicans, have been very reluctant to challenge this president. Yesterday it was a fairly unified and strong voice, even from say, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell saying, no, that’s not going to happen. Is that notable? BERNSTEIN: It’s notable, but, first of all, this president does not show a capability of acting in the national interest. Only in his own interest. And McConnell and those leaders know it. But what we need is something that’s happened with another dangerous president at a dangerous moment, Richard Nixon, but nothing like what we’ve seen now, but in the final days of Richard Nixon’s presidency, the great Republican leadership, led by Barry Goldwater and others, the Speaker of the House, the Majority Leader of the Senate, marched to the White House and told Nixon he had to leave office because of what he had done to undermine the national interests through his reckless and outrageous and illegal acts. Something similar is needed now if only the Republican leadership and other Republicans would go publicly and say to this president, all right, you want to stay through the rest of your term, but we are going to be a caretaker until this election and you must begin to act in the national interests. And, in fact, we would like to find another alternative to run as the Republican nominee for President of the United States. SCIUTTO: Wow. CAMEROTA: Do you see President Trump — BERNSTEIN: Some kind of really — CAMEROTA: President Trump as more dangerous than Richard Nixon and acting more recklessly? BERNSTEIN: Absolutely. I don’t think there’s any question about Richard Nixon’s competence. He understood history. Watergate was a terrible abuse of power, the likes of which we had never seen, up — up until that time. This is a totally different situation. We have a President of the United States now who demonstrably is not capable or stable enough or understands the history or the principles of the United States to act responsibly in the national interests. That is the meaning of what General Mattis, of what his former chiefs of staff were saying when they left and what they have told others and what they have written — SCIUTTO: Yeah. BERNSTEIN: — in saying that this president is incapable of acting in the national interests of the United States. Undermining daily our national security. And COVID is a national security question. Why is COVID out of control? SCIUTTO: Yeah. BERNSTEIN: Because of the actions and inaction of this unstable — SCIUTTO: Yeah. BERNSTEIN: — authoritarian president. SCIUTTO: And you — you can’t forget, in the stream of news, for instance, not standing up to Russia as it repeatedly has threatened U.S. forces in Afghanistan. He refuses to do so. I wonder, as the president feels weaker, more under assault, given his loss of public support three months to the election, do you see him becoming more erratic? BERNSTEIN: Well, we’ve seen it every day, including what we — what we saw yesterday. And it’s not just a question of erratic, it’s a question of willing to undertake dangerous statements and actions, such as he’s — he’s done in Portland, Oregon, and sending marshals and others into other cities, not to really create order, but to provoke violence is the underlying purpose according to some who know — who know the President and what he’s doing. It’s time for the Republicans to act. That is what we need. We need them to protect — set up a guardrail to protect us from this president in the next three months. They need to understand — including what you saw McConnell do yesterday while he held his nose. They understand the danger of this President of the United States and it’s damn pastime that some of them step up and say, we have to save the republic in these next few months, in this national emergency, because we are in a national presidential emergency and those guys know it. McConnell knows it. He understands it. And it’s time that they take some action to protect the United States of America from this President of the United States of America. CAMEROTA: Carl Bernstein — BERNSTEIN: And this is — this is fact, not — we’re talking about facts here. We’re not — yes, I’m — I’m giving a kind of — it sounds like pejorative. It sounds like opinion. But it’s based on the demonstrable facts that those closest to the President know about him and have expressed to reporters and to the public about his incompetence, ignorance and danger.
