Ever since the events of January 6, the hosts, reporters, and commentators at CNN were the loudest voices in the media claiming that day saw Donald Trump launch an attack on democracy.
CNN is now driving the corporate-controlled media bandwagon and repeating every claim made by the January 6 Committee as fact.
But now CNN got slapped with a reality check about January 6 that left one star host stammering.
Following the latest January 6 kangaroo court hearing, CNN’s Jake Tapper interviewed former Trump National Security Advisor turned Never-Trumper John Bolton.
The hearing was long on innuendo and short on actual facts or evidence that Donald Trump directly planned for his supporters to attack the Capitol on January 6.
Tapper – who was one of the first left-wing activists in the media to call that day an “insurrection” – was stunned when Bolton said what happened that day was “not an attack on our Democracy.”
Bolton added that what took place on January 6 was a “once in a lifetime occurrence.”
Bolton – who many Trump supporters never liked in the first place for his Liz Cheney-style foreign policy – then admitted out loud that he took part in planning coups when he worked in government and Donald Trump did not conspire to stage a coup on January 6.
“As somebody who has helped plan a coup d’état — not here, but, you know, other places — it takes a lot of work. And that’s not what he did,” Bolton stated.

Bolton’s admitted coup plotting left Tapper flummoxed, which led to him alluding to his time in the Trump administration when the government attempted to drive out illegitimate Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
“I’m not going to get into the specifics, but well, I wrote about Venezuela in the book,” Bolton answered. “It turned out not to be successful. Not that we had all that much to do with it, but I saw what it took for an opposition to try and overturn an illegally elected President, and they failed.”
John Bolton is a Liz Cheney-style Republican who hates Donald Trump.
And even John Bolton knows the corporate-controlled media and January 6 Committee’s narrative about Trump plotting a coup is nonsense.
