Trump Slams CNN For Editing Out Clinton ‘Bomb’ Quote; “Disgusting, Disgraceful”
"These people are the most dishonest people"
Donald Trump slammed CNN during an interview on Fox and Friends
this morning for editing out Hillary Clinton describing the New York attack as a “bombing” even as the network criticized Trump for using the same description.
CNN featured Clinton taking a question from a reporter on her campaign plane, agreeing that Trump was being insensitive for calling the attack in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York a “bombing,” despite Clinton referring to the incident as a “bombing” just moments before.
The network then repeated the stunt a second time, with host Jake Tapper slamming Trump for leaping to conclusions, again failing to play the clip where Clinton describes the incident as a “bombing”.
“CNN is disgusting and disgraceful,” said Trump, adding that he was treated more fairly by Fox News.
The Republican presidential candidate also made reference to another example of media censorship, when CBS News edited out Bill Clinton saying that Hillary Clinton “frequently” had medical episodes.
“These people are the most dishonest people, CNN is so disgusting and dishonest, and I watch it, it’s so unfair, they call it the Clinton news network,” said Trump.
“She used the word ‘bombs’ also by the way….I was criticized for calling it correctly – what I said was exactly correct,” he added.
Elsewhere in the interview, Trump slammed “stupid” leaders for being soft on terrorists.
“Well it’s a mess and it’s a shame and we’re going to have to be very tough,” said Trump.
“I think we’re going to see a big change over the last couple of days, I think this is something that will happen more and more all over the country,” he added.
Trump clarified that he meant terror attacks would become more frequent “because we’ve been weak, our country’s been weak, we’re letting people in by the thousands and the tens of thousands, and as I’ve been saying you’ve got to stop it.”
Trump then slammed Barack Obama for his plan to accept 110,000 more refugees in fiscal year 2017.
“Hillary Clinton wants to increase what he’s letting in, and he’s letting in thousands of thousands of people….they can’t be properly vetted,” said Trump, adding, “he let in over 100,000 additional people and now Hillary Clinton is raising it by 550 per cent….thousands of people are pouring into our country and we have no idea what we’re doing.
“Our leaders are – I don’t even say weak – I say stupid,” Trump concluded.
