CNN did its level best to cheerlead for Democrats during their convention.
But they couldn’t have predicted the outcome.
Now, you won’t believe what CNN said about Bill Clinton.
As the Democratic National Convention (DNC) continues marching on, new and shocking stories are revealed every day.
The most recent debacle involves former President Bill Clinton.
Clinton was invited to speak during the convention and his entire five-minute speech consisted of him attempting to shame President Trump for his conduct in the White House.
It is not shocking the Democrats had a speaker spend all his time trying to tear down Trump.
Bashing Trump has basically become the theme of the DNC.
What is surprising is that they got Bill Clinton to deliver said speech.
He isn’t exactly known for his sparkling clean record during his time in the Oval Office.
Jeff Charles, writer for the blog RedState, stated:
“His romps with an intern in the White House don’t exactly put him in a position to judge others in his position. The fact that he had a relationship with convicted child rapist Jeffrey Epstein doesn’t help much either, does it?”
These are just two points in a long laundry list of misconducts that Clinton was eventually impeached for.
However, these facts were apparently lost to the participants of a CNN panel during the DNC.
Van Jones, Scott Jennings, and Jennifer Granholm discussed Clinton’s speech as well as the reasons he has not been discredited despite his numerous misconducts and the allegations against him.
Jennings, rightly dumbfounded at the situation, asked, “How is it that Bill Clinton has not been canceled by the Democratic – how has he survived all of these waves of cancellations when he has been one of the biggest violators of these rules all these years?”
Jones’ only response was “We believe in redemption, brother.”
Jennings responded, saying, “So you’re gonna say that in one breath and then say, ‘Character matters. Ladies and gentlemen, Bill Clinton!’ I mean, does this make sense to anyone? If you want Republicans to vote for Joe Biden, having Bill Clinton talk about character and not having drama in the Oval Office – is that the right answer?”
Despite this, Jones continued to come to Clinton’s defense.
“I don’t think we have to say everything that Bill Clinton has done is great, but I do think that when he has made mistakes, he’s acknowledged them, and I admire him for that.”
Jennings’ statement sums up the problems of the Democratic Party.
On the one hand, they claim “character matters” in order to demolish Trump, but on the other hand, they ignore character when it comes to the members of their own party.
This two-faced approach has and will continue to land them in hot political water as time goes on.
Charles continues, “Many on the left are more concerned with protecting members of their team than they are on applying their principles consistently.”
Time will tell if the Democrats manage to make it out of the hole they keep digging for themselves.
