Byron Donalds Spits Facts to CNN Hacks
Byron Donalds completely wrecked the mainstream media for being disconnected from ordinary Americans following the CNN town hall that was put on to host President Trump. He pointed out that the discussion revolved mainly around past issues such as the 2020 presidential election, Jan. 6, and Trump’s presidency.
In a CNN panel discussion following the town hall, Donalds expressed his disappointment with the event’s emphasis on past issues instead of addressing current concerns of the voters. He believed that the town hall should have prioritized discussing topics such as the economy, crime, and the ongoing border crisis that have a direct impact on people’s daily lives.
“Let me say this: We spent 20, 22, 23 minutes, talking about Jan. 6. We could have been talking about a whole lot of other issues, instead of doing that, for the first half hour or so,” Donalds said.
During the show, Anderson Cooper and commentator Alyssa Farah Griffin disagreed with Donalds. They asked him if he accepts the results of the 2020 election. Cooper stated that the media would continue to talk about the 2020 election.
“Let me tell you why most voters are frankly kind of tired of y’all bringing this up. Inflation, border —” Donalds told the panel while being repeatedly interrupted. “Voters want to talk about inflation, the border, fentanyl, the debt ceiling, foreign policy.”
“The nation is a mess. Our border is overrun. Inflation is crippling every family, Republican, Democrat, Independent. Those are the facts of the matters in 2024,” Donalds later said.
I honestly don’t know why they keep pushing the “will you accept the results if you lose” thing other than trying to set a trap for him. He answered it during the town hall several times that if the election is fair, he’ll accept the results. What’s wrong with that?
Despite Donalds’ efforts, the panel kept bringing up previous events involving Trump such as the January 6th incident and the 2020 presidential campaign.
“At the end of the day, this is always going to be at the hands of the voters,” Donalds told his panel-mates.
After the heated segment, Donalds took to Twitter to make his point yet again.
“The American people aren’t speaking about the 2020 election, a liable case after 25+ years, or January 6th,” he tweeted. “They are talking about the price of gas/groceries, fentanyl killing Americans 18-45, crime in the streets, & the fear of WWIII. CNN’s top issues aren’t America’s.”
