CNN tries to discredit everyone they don’t like.
Their go-to strategy is to call them a racist.
And they just called one Trump ally racist for a reason you won’t believe.
A So-Called Racist Statement
With Ron DeSantis’ big victory in Florida, the left is furious.
The Trump ally won the Republican nomination for governor.
His win is a major blow to the left.
Speaking about the great progress made in Florida under current Governor Rick Scott, DeSantis went after his opponent’s policies.
He said voters shouldn’t “monkey this up” by voting for the socialist policies of Andrew Gillum.
Because Gillum is an African America, Democrats immediately attacked DeSantis as racist for using the word “monkey.”
DeSantis’ spokesman fired back at the accusation stating:
“Ron DeSantis was obviously talking about Florida not making the wrong decision to embrace the socialist policies that Andrew Gillum espouses.”
But the outrage machine is already in full effect, so the left doesn’t care.
Racist Dog Whistle
Democrats claim DeSantis’ remarks was a “racist dog whistle.”
This is a charge constantly brought against Trump.
It’s the radical left’s way to shut down any conversation on important social issues.
Instead of intelligently debating issues, the left finds it easier to call their opponents racist.
But the 2016 election is proof that doesn’t work.
While the entire media is stacked against Trump, he continues to grow in support.
It’s almost as if Americans are smart enough to see what’s really going on.
Trump Responds To Racist Claim
Hours after it happened, CNN’s Jim Acosta began asking Trump about the incident.
But Trump continued to stand with DeSantis, although he had not heard about the comment.
The fact that CNN was asking him about it was probably enough to realize it was fake outrage.
CNN made constant claims of racism against Trump during the 2016 election.
To them, even considering securing our borders is racist.
So Trump knows not to buy into it.
And the rest of America knows that as well.
The only people upset at Trump when he calls the press the enemy of the American people are those on the far-left and the media themselves.
CNN continues to lose viewership compared to outlets like Fox News.
But it’s these kinds of ridiculous claims and attacks that’s caused them to lose viewers.
