One CNN correspondent was visibly nervous when she found herself praising Trump

CNN has spent the past year relentlessly bashing Trump in hopes of higher ratings.

Their executives have even been caught on camera saying the Russia story was “mostly bullsh*t.”

So when Trump brought Congressional leaders to the table for a negotiation over immigration reform, one correspondent was visibly nervous praising the president.

Many of our readers rightly believe that CNN is fake news.



They employ hack correspondents like Jim Acosta to bash the president for viral clips.

That’s what makes this moment from CNN’s Dana Bash offering up some praise for Trump’s recorded meeting with Congressional leaders so great to watch.

RealClearPolitics reports:

However, [Bash] was nervous what the reaction would be when she delivered commentary on the transparent meeting.

“I’m sure I will get hit for this and I don’t really care,” Bash made sure to qualify her remarks. “The bottom line is that this is, a year ago, this is the presidency that many people thought Donald Trump was capable of.”

“This really was a negotiation,” she said. “We really got to be the fly on the wall in this room listening to the way they talk. I’m really not convinced that it would have been any different had the cameras not been in there. I was just communicating with now two Republicans who were in that meeting who said that they had no idea that the cameras were going to stay in there as long as they did. The president before the cameras came on said we will just do a typical thing. They’re going to come in, I’m going to make a remark and you guys can too. And so on and so forth.”

“We don’t know if this is a results-driven debate, but just the notion of him being in command,” the CNNer said. “Of him wanting the cameras in there and wanting the cameras to see him sitting at a table with Democrats and Republicans, playing the role of a deal maker. Whether it sees fruition or not, this is what people who had high hopes for the Trump presidency thought it would be. Meeting after meeting like this.”

  1. Hello all,
    . . . . Dana did the correct thing. I also believe that she will be censored or fired. cnn is under georgie porgies control. This is a communist propaganda machine. Does anyone have a link to President Trumps meeting about immigration?
    America: Love It or Leave It!
    GOD Bless and GOD Help us,
    rich!

    • TRUTH IS THE TRUTH! HOW NUCH MORE BS CAN CNN COME UP WITH??????ON SECOND THOUGHT , THEY JUST MAKE UP CRAP AS THEY GO ALONG. DANA CAME TO HER SENSES…..NOW IF THE REST OF THE CLINTON NETWORK NEWS WOULD.

  2. CNN has had to change from the Clinton New Network to the Crap New Network since Hillary’s loss. The still lead the pack in FAKE news as far as I am concerned and always will be.

  3. It was beautiful watching the democrats bumbling for words in front of the very people they would have given a interpretation of how the meeting went and how they controlled the floor, and how Trump bumbled through it. Beautifully done Donald my hat is off to you for the absolute control and genius that you are. Joel

  4. it about time for cnn to tell the truth about president trump that he is willing to negotiate with the liberal democrats regarding the illegal immigrants,daca,chain migration. ( NO AMENESTY PLEASE )and no more fake
    news okay cnn.

    • What President Trump is doing just makes good sense,and if they can’t see that then something is obviously wrong with this picture. It seems to me that they are just jealous and can’t admit it. They are all in a rage, whereas they should just be happy that this country is going places now!

  5. A. I do not watch CNN. B. CNN = Clinton News Network C. Bashing Trump is as stupid as they can get to get ratings? D. That is why I don’t what or take in CNN as all they are is a bunch of lies.

  6. How ironic, Dana Bash actually doesn’t bash Trump. But, she actually could be fired for not following party lines to the letter.As they say, way unbalanced.

  7. Trump was fantastic, I just hope he doesn’t fall into a Democratic trap! Just stick to the initial agenda. Don’t be a Polosi………..READ before you sign!

  8. They’ll wait a while and then fire Dana Bash for some made up reason, or have a talk with her and have her discount what she said, or up the anti-Trump rhetoric.

  9. EILEEN ROSS..YOU POSTED A COMMENT HERE AND ALOT OF PEOPLE ARE CALLING YOU OUT FOR IT..PLEASE EXPLAIN YOURSELF.ME THINKS YOU ARE A LIB IN SHEEPS CLOTHING

  10. I am no longer a Democrat since Peanut Carter letting Iran hold our people for over 400 days. I am neither a Republican, but an Independent. I had rather listen to the man instead of the party. I would have thought Obama would have proven that.
    Trump is doing a wonderful job and I believe he will make us take out place in this world. I am 85 years old and came in this world with Roosevelt but Truman was the man. He said the buck stops here and I believe in Trump. Can’t wait until I can vote for him 4 more years. I don’t care what Hollywood or the NFL says. Ship DACA out. Build the wall.

    • It sounds as if the wall can be built from the taxes paid by the companies returning to the US due to the new tax bill. Build that wall!!!

    • Hey Elmo, God Bless you. I’ll be 77 next month and the difference between us and many voters today is that we base our judgment on facts and not emotion and hearsay. The colleges and universities have poisoned so many with their Liberal emotional ideas instead of facts and realism. I watched Warren Buffett on CNBC this morning where he reflected back to when he was born. His major statement was that the National debt has increased 1000X since he was born while GDP has increased only 6X. OK, dispute the numbers but whatever they are emphasizes that it has been a Tax and Spend environment over the years and without further analysis I’d brashly say that most of the debt came from Democrat administrations. With that said…if this is so and you feel so strongly about it Warren…then why the hell are you a Democrat? Donald Trump is a breadth of fresh air. Over my many years, I’ve seen very little accomplished by presidents. I ask you, make a list going back to 1945 and tell me who accomplished what. You’ll be surprised. The only thing that sticks in my mind is that Eisenhower is credited with the Interstate Highway system. Reagan ended the Cold War and got the Berlin Wall taken down plus put Kadafy(sp) in his place. GHW Bush gave us Medicare Prescription D which is a waste and gave a windfall to drug companies. Kennedy the Bay of Pigs and sex with Marilyn Monroe. Clinton balanced the budget???and brought sex to the White House and sold out the U.S. to Red China for campaign contributions. Obama tore down this country and created a divisive/racially motivated country, nothing more. He staffed his administration with mostly incompetents/incompetence. The Swamp doesn’t like Trump because they have been feeding/leeching off the Federal government and our tax dollars. Our tax dollars that should have been used to benefit the country and not just them.

  11. the wall must be built at all costs. It will pay for itself over and over again over the years. The money we save on health care, walfare, food stamps alone will pay it back in under ten years. Vote out the people that are against it in 2018 and 2020.

    • I’m not that much of a fan of Hannity, but his opening monologue last night was stellar. He compiled videos of Chuck the Schmuck Schumer and Crooked Hillary going back to 2005. They were and couldn’t be more emphatic about the need for a wall and why illegal immigration had to be stemmed. 180 degrees the opposite of what’s coming out of their mouths today. This shows exactly how motivated they are to buy votes instead of doing the right thing and do whatever they think necessary to get elected. This validates my comments above citing how much voters don’t know, don’t remember, don’t care and base their ideas on emotion instead of facts.

  12. I am of two minds on yesterday’s televised meeting. On one hand, Mr. Trump appeared in charge, an utter refutation to the new book. OTOH, when Diane Feinstein said “let’s do a clean DACA bill”, Mr. Trump SHOULD have said, “yeah, I like the idea of advancing DACA – but we need to ensure we don’t ever have to do this again, don’t we, Dianne?” I know – let’s do DACA AND eVerify, together. And then we can do “comprehensive” reform as a second step. What do you think? Deal?
    But that’s not what The Dealmaker of the Century did, was it?

    • Maybe your point was for public consumption, and the points you raised were conveyed in private, so not to embarrass Dianne in public. That is well-thought negotiating.

  13. This country has been so politically divided that nothing positive has occurred in the last eight years. American business is accomplished through negotiations and it is the correct path to solve our problems and capitalize on our opportunities. If this process had been utilized over the past 30 years we may have avoided some serious errors. One party wants government to control the lives of citizens and the other wants no intrusive interference of government in business, health care or people’s lives. Allowing one party to unilaterally make decisions and pass bills and laws leads to things like Obamacare that totally ignored cost of the system or the negative effects to medicine and the quality of medical care!

  14. I watched the meeting and believe it went well…for those who don’t understand the “idea” of compromise…one cannot throw a tantrum to get wh”at
    they Absolutely want and then cry because they get nothing…give Trump some credit. He understands the need for securing the border…other Presidents talked about it but nothing was done…he will get border security…have faith.

  15. Trump will get what he wants. Give him a break.
    So far he has not failed on his agenda.
    He is not a dictator, already the democrat liberal judges are blocking him deporting criminals foreign illegal immigrants.
    Make sure when you vote this year for anyone the are conservative, not liberals in conservative hat that will vote against your wishes.
    Trump MAGA 2024

  16. Well, as they say, “the proof is in the pudding.” She could hardly call herself a truthful reporter if she spoke any differently. I’ll wager that CNN isn’t very keen on it, though, and what would you also like to bet they had a little “chat” with her about it after the show.

    • If CNN chastises her for telling it like it is, I’m sure Fox would pick her up in a minute. They can use some more ladies to cover all their shows. Some are doing double duty now.

    • I think that it is bullshit for him to want to give DACA amnesty. Also for them to do DACA frist before doing the complete overhaul of immigration. That is nothing but giving in to the democrats and a win for them. Just more votes come mid term for democrates

      • While the R’s have a slim majority, they don’t have the sixty votes to pass new legislation. The only way to get to 60 is to “buy “ a couple of D’s. You find a hot button issue to them and trade something that you want (wall, chain migration, and lottery ) for it. It’s called negotiation. You can read about it in Art of the Deal. This will continue to happen until one party has clear majorities in the presidency, congress and the House.

  17. I am very disappointed in our President. The fact that he wanted the world to see and hear what went on in there really disturbs me. But not as much as him caving in to the democrats. Immigration reform should be complete, and there should be NO negotiations, period. Politics should not come into play here. Our safety depends on the not only the wall, but also deportation. President Trump is going to lose many voters, including myself.

    • He has to negotiate with the D’s. He has slim majorities in the House and Senate, but not quorums. Quotes are necessary to pass new, non-reconciliation legislation. Without thenecessary votes he has to trade something the D’s want really bad for something that the R’s want. The D’s want you to be mad about the gridlock and play into their hands. Don’t take the bait.

    • EILENN PLEASE EXPLAIN HIW HE CAVED TO THE DEMOCRATS..AND MAKING THIS MEETING PUBLIC MEANS THAT THE LEFTIST MARXIST LIBERALS CANNOT PUT WORDS IN HIS MOUTH.THIS AND HUS TWEETS ARE THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE TRUE NEWS..YOU NOT LIKING THESE 2 THINGS SHIWS WHI YOU ARE..GO BACK TO HILLARY AND BARAK.WE DONTT NEED OR WANT YOU

    • GOD BLESS OUR PRESIDENT
      TRUMP
      THE RIGHT MAN AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME
      THE WORLD WILL SEE JUST HOW REALLY
      BRILLIANT BRILLIANT BRILLIANT HE REALLY IS
      HE WILL DEEP SIX THE DEEP STATE WITH
      NO PROBLEM …… CNN IS ALL FAKE NEWS
      AND LOOSING THEIR BASE IN THE NEWS CYCLE
      WE WILL BUILD THE WALL AND SHIP CRIMINAL
      ILLEGALS OUT AND BACK TO THEIR OWN COUNTRIES
      AMERICA FIRST GOD BLESS AMERICA………………
