DISGUSTING: CNN guest connects New Zealand mosque massacre to Trump only minutes after it happened!

The hate for Trump has become vile at networks like CNN.

Last night, as the news was unfolding about these mosque attacks in New Zealand, Intercept columnist Mehdi Hasan suggested that Trump was partly to blame for these kind of attacks around the world.


Of course, this happened on Don Lemon’s show. Ugh.

Here’s the full transcript from Newsbusters:

DON LEMON: Now, you’re listening now to a briefing from the New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern talking about the shooting, a very serious situation, a firearm situation, a firearm incident in Christchurch. Again that’s according to the Prime Minister and police as well. They’re saying the city of Christchurch is in lockdown. Also, all schools have been placed on lockdown as well. And they’re waiting to get more information, asking people to stay in place. Asking people to lockdown even though families may be separated. And this is reportedly this incident happened at a mosque, and there’s a possibility of a second shooting that’s not been confirmed yet, but we’re working on getting it.

Let’s get back now to Matthew Rosenberg, Juliette Kayyem, and also Hasan Mehdi – Mehdi Hasan.

Listen, let’s talk about this. You heard the Prime Minister. I’m going to bring you in Mehi because this kind of thing as you said before is personal to you and it speaks to the violence that is going on in our culture.

MEHDI HASAN: Very much so. And I think to kind of talk about the story we talked about before in terms of Trump’s rhetoric as well. Western government has turned a blind eye to domestic terrorism, to domestic far-right terrorism. We know from stats, for example, here in the U.S. that there are more attacks, more casualties from domestic terrorist groups — far right groups, than there are quote-unquote jihadist or Islamist groups.

You have Muslim victims of terror in New Zealand. I mentioned the attack in Canada — Quebec City shortly after Trump was inaugurated, there’s been attempted attacks and attacks in Minnesota and various places across the U.S.

We do need to start taking this seriously. Crimes against minorities, Jewish groups, against Muslim communities, against people of color are on the rise in Britain, across western Europe, United States, Canada, Australia, and now sadly New Zealand.

And that requires politicians to take the problem seriously and also to deal with their language. You asked Matthew earlier about, is there someone out there tonight who’s going to hear Trump’s rhetoric and act on it?

I mean, less than six months ago we know one of his big supporters sent pipe bombs in the mail to dozens of people who Trump had personally attacked and demonized. Who was driving around in a van with pro-Trump imagery and anti-CNN imagery. We know lots of far-right attackers have claimed to be Trump supporters in recent months.

So, this is not just about Trump but about politicians especially on the right taking seriously this problem and really being careful about their language at the very minimum.

I really try hard not to curse, but it’s really difficult to watch something like this and keep my mouth shut.

This is just vile! It’s evil. And it demonstrates just how much hatred these anti-Trumpers have for him.

Not only do they want Trump harassed by state and federal authorities in order to impeach him, but every time something bad happens they blame him for it. They blamed him for the attack on the Jewish synagogue. Now they blame him for the attacks on mosques in New Zealand.

I’d call it ‘pathetic’ but that word feels like it doesn’t even touches the viciousness of this.

  1. I wish I could get a job as one of the people who talks to the news anchors in their earpieces to let them know when they need to go a break, etc. I would be yelling things like “Are you f-ing nuts?”, “You idiot!”, and “What the hell’s wrong with you?”

  2. SMEAR, Inc. just keeps on smearing. It’s intellectually lazy to knee-jerk the tired old meme whenever they need to offload some toxicity. There must be a few among all these DNCbots that can think for themselves and see reality for what it is. Then again, maybe not *shrug

  3. This idiot can’t even point out all the so called “far right” attacking and committing more terrorism. This is exactly why TRUMP was elected. These leftists never stop…they just keep pushing and pushing their lies and rhetoric!

  4. Google’s new feature of promoting news items they think you’ll be interested in below the search bar offered up some article claiming that Trump just threatened people who are against him.

    I won’t link to the scumbag writer, but here’s his opening paragraph:

    It says a lot about the state of the country when the President of the United States can make a laudatory, if oblique, reference to having fascist goon squads commit violence on his behalf, and it’s not the biggest headline of the day. Nevertheless, that’s evidently where we are after Donald Trump’s latest, sincerely horrifying, interview with Breitbart News.

  5. Perfect time for a 48 hr. news blackout. I’ll watch The Last Emperor, Watchmen director’s cut and Ash vs Evil Dead.

    1. Have you seen the “Pitch Meeting” videos on youtube?

      Ryan George, of ScreenRant does a really good job of making fun of movies. He did Watchmen.

      1. I watch every damn one of those. Along with Honest Trailers and Cinema Sins. Super-easy, barely an inconvenience.

        Devon Stack on Black Pilled does some interesting film critiques as well.

    2. I was looking forward to the Watchmen Series on HBO…then saw that Damon Lindelof is writing it. :unamused:

  6. To blame our POTUS – regardless who s/he is – for something that happened in New Zealand and is in no way whatsoever connected to America, is the lowest a so-called “news” outlet can go. Once again, CNN displays their utter contempt for Trump and America with this evil finger-pointing and allowing this distortion of the facts to occur unchecked or unchallenged. That network should be fined or removed. And for those who consume this BS (like my mother), they must be mentally/morally -challenged.

  7. I think I’m going to spend the weekend playing a drinking game. Anytime I hear “Trump’s rhetoric” I’m going to take a shot.

      1. My liver was forged alongside Mjolnir, the Masamune, and the Spear of Longinus. All destined for great things, Mjolnir went to the Gods of the North, the Masamune to the Gods of the East, the Spear to the God of the West, and my liver to my Southern Gods, bestowed upon me by Quetzalcoatl himself.

        I’ll be fine.

  8. Someone should ask, in a country that has some of the most stringent gun laws that these shooters were able to get enough weapons to kill 40 people.

    1. @SheerPolitics There are a few more hoops to jump through in New Zealand, but lawful citizens can acquire rifles and shotguns. Pistols are very difficult.

    2. They license them. It’s not impossible to get them, but you have to go through a lot of background checks, including mental health.

      Which is the paradigm they want to set up in USA. Clearly it works. 😐

        1. You should. I’m very rarely wrong about anything.

          But I applaud your desire to discover Truth from Fiction on your own. That’s a noble effort that few make.

  9. Apparently this guy was an eviro global warming/over population nut. “He calls for a form of “Green Nationalism” which will save the planet by stopping “the continued destruction of the natural environment itself through mass immigration and uncontrolled urbanization”. He hates capitalism, free markets, and free trade. Plus he’s anti Christian.

  10. These comments are the very definition of prejudice (ignorance). You would have to think, to believe this that 1) nothing like this ever happened before Trump (3 years ago?) and 2) no acts of political violence were ever perpetrated by leftists. Say what????

    And there is CNN, calming nodding their heads…

  11. OMG…..this is unbelievable. It is amazing to me how the US media attacks and accuses a US President of every crime possible. The US media is an absolute disgusting joke.

  12. Typical, leftists will use anything, even something that happened on the other side of the world, to push their narrative.

  13. “The hate for Trump has become vile at networks like CNN.”

    Not only CNN, just read a few tweets from “conservatives,” David French, Rick Wilson, Ana Navarro, et al., IT IS REPREHENSIBLE! Just because you don’t like someone’s politics doesn’t mean you have to hate him. It’s sad when a network and/or political “analysts” collect a paycheck by being haters.

      1. I agree, B. They’re today’s useful idiots for the Left. Seeing Nicole Wallace on MSNBC being touted as a “conservative” Republican… as well as the other PENDEJA, Ana Navarro on CNN, makes me cringe.

  14. Well I thought this for a very long time, however I think it is very safe to say, Trump is the new Bush.

  15. Shorter CNN: Are you wondering how the latest tragedy is Trump’s fault? Tune in to CNN, where we’ll have experts to explain it!

  16. Okay – 3 points –
    First: it was Don Lemon’s program and he brings no credibility to any issue.
    Second: it was on CNN which is still in it’s desperate scramble to the bottom of cable news. Third: it’s someone on the left blaming Trump for something he had nothing to do with.

    Therefore it’s just another example of crap news. Not even rising to the level of fake news.

  17. But somehow Omar is never held accountable for actual racism & hatred. This is vile. Cnn hasn’t learned one darn thing even after just getting sued!

  18. Trump is an easy target. I think this is called projection………..where you accuse someone else of what you’re doing. The Left is full of hatred and CNN is the home for it.

    1. Unfortunately, not only CNN, SJ!! It’s getting worse as the 2020 election gets closer!!

      1. As the lefty media gets more desperate to bring down Trump and not just defeat him but demolish him in the election they will become so bad that even most Democrats, the ones with brains, will abandon the nutters.

        Bias is one thing – crazy is another. They can’t even hide it anymore.

  19. I love how the attack I’ve seen online so far is to categorically blame huge swathes of Conservative white males. And what sin are they guilty of? Well, bigotry and racism for blaming huge swathes of Muslims for terrorism.

  20. cnn should be shut down for their hate mongering. They are so bitter that their candidate, Hillary Clinton did not win. They need to get over it. But alas, they are known as the Clinton network news!

    1. If CNN gets shut down, they can all get a job at The View. I call CNN that too. Communist News Network works as well.

  21. Typical of the left, they never blame the perp it always has to be political to advance there agenda. :exclamation:

    1. The fact that Don Lemon has a show is a mystery to anyone with taste, integrity, and decency. However considering how few actually watch his show we know that there are a small number of fools who will watch anything as long as it promotes hate.

      1. He has job security because so many are frightened they might be called racist or homophobic. I suspect the time is coming when most will feel like I do, call me whatever you want, that doesn’t make him less of a POS. 😡

  22. ‘This is just vile! It’s evil. And it demonstrates just how much hatred these anti-Trumpers have for him.’ IT IS VILE!! I am disgusted by most of the media. I am waiting for the voices of support for Trump from his party.
