CNN’s host goes all-in on Donald Trump and his ”bullies“ who are ”trying to get off scot-free“
Acosta asserted that the “batshit crazy nonsense on [Bannon’s] disinformation podcast” – including promises that Trump will be “back in office” by 2022 – is reflected by the lack of consequences for the insurrectionists and the Trump officials who helped enable them.
“If the bullies and enablers can continue to gaslight us with their lies … then no wonder the bully-in-chief is plotting his comeback,” said Acosta.
The centerpiece of Acosta’s segment: Trump’s “twisted and evil” remarks during a recent appearance on Fox News about Haitian immigrants.
“Hundreds of thousands of people are coming into our country, and if you look at … what’s happening in Haiti, a tremendous problem with AIDS,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “Many of those people will probably have AIDS and are coming into our country and we don’t do anything about it … It’s like a death wish for our country.”
After debunking this statement (“not that the facts really matter to him”), Acosta pointed out that Haitians are just the latest Trump targets in a long list ranging from Mexicans to Muslims. All of which, he argues, makes those who will stand with Trump in Iowa more despicable – and troubling.
“If it sounds like a bad sequel, we can only imagine what the closing scene of that sequel looks like,” Acosta warned, asfootage of Trump flags and other white nationalist flags played in the background. “Which flags will the bullies drape across the Capitol: ours or his?”
