A CNN host had an absolute meltdown live on air after it was suggested that reports about President Donald Trump urging former FBI Director James Comey to stop investigating General Mike Flynn may have came from questionable sources.
On Tuesday, the New York Times published a second hand report about a memo where Comey noted that President Trump allegedly urged him to drop the investigation into Flynn. The former FBI director never complained about the conversation to the Justice Department or Attorney General.
The report is based solely on “two people who read the memo,” both of whom are unnamed. The author, Michael Schmidt, admits that he has not seen the document for himself — yet has reported the secondhand sources as fact without actually seeing the memo for himself to verify the claims.
The White House and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster have denied the allegations.
After former Navy SEAL Carl Higbie suggested that McMaster may be more credible than anonymous sources during an appearance on CNN, host Kate Bolduan began pointing her finger in his face while screaming in near hysterics.
“Two former officials knowledgeable of the situation confirmed to CNN the main points of the story — two former officials? Tell you what, come out and name those people and then we will have something to talk about,” Higbie began.
Bolduan, clearly upset, interrupted Higbie saying, “one, we protect sources — two it’s not just CNN — it’s Washington Post, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CNN, ABC, NBC –”
“Who, yeah, but who are the sources?” Higbie interjected. “They’re hiding behind this anonymity.”
Now visibly enraged, Bolduan began shouting, “oh please! PUH-LEASE do not even start with me that you are going to attack sources!”
Higbie asked her if her outrage means she is saying McMaster is lying, and another member of the panel came in for the save and stated that he “didn’t answer the question.”
“You cannot attack, do not attack, the stellar reporters of CNN,” the now completely unhinged Bolduan screamed.
The clip was aired on Tuesday’s episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, and Carlson took aim at Bolduan’s outburst.
“‘Skeptical,’ says the retired Navy SEAL,” Tucker lamented. “‘Be quiet,’ screams the 33-year-old news anchor, clapping her hands in rage.”
“How dare you question the authorities, in this case the news media,” Tucker continued.
The popular Fox News host added that “the world is a very complicated place. Washington especially. What you think is happening often really isn’t happening.”
Carlson noted that anyone who dares to question the narrative of the mainstream media is immediately labeled a pawn of the Kremlin.
SCAMDEMIC: Social Justice Warrior Academic Who ‘Died’ of COVID-19 Never Actually Existed
The woman never existed.
Last week, BethAnn McLaughlin, who founded the group MeTooSTEM, announced that one of her colleagues had died.
McLaughlin posted a sob story on Twitter that a friend, @Sciencing_Bi, had died of COVID-19, and it likely happened because she was forced to teach in the classroom.
“She was a fierce protector of people,” McLaughlin wrote on her account, which is now suspended. “No one has ever had my back like that.”
@Sciencing_Bi had gained a large Twitter following by playing the victim and claiming they were assaulted by several men in her field while working at Arizona State University. She claimed that she contracted COVID-19 because of the school’s policies.
“ASU kept teachers, staff and students on campus until April. That’s well after we knew this was a killer disease. Many got COVID. Including me,” the Twitter account wrote.
“Please read her timeline,” McLaughlin wrote on Twitter. “Campus closed and she was in the hospital a week later. Be mad about COVID but be more mad that BIPOC community is most vulnerable and underrepresented on campus. We are killing them.”
McLaughlin even went as far to suggest that she had relations with @Sciencing_Bi, writing: “Looking at her side of the bed and crying. Just a lot of crying. I literally can do nothing.”
However, there was one major problem with McLaughlin’s story: @Sciencing_Bi was a fake account and not an actual person. ASU discovered that it was a hoax after looking into the matter.
“Unfortunately, this appears to be a hoax. We looked into this over the weekend and were unable to verify any connection with the university. We were in touch with several deans and faculty members and no one was able to identify the account or who might be behind it,” ASU said in a statement.
“Some of the past commentary this person posted was questionable, such as teaching in April. ASU transitioned to fully remote teaching in March. The person also mentioned salary reductions. We have not implemented any salary reductions here,” they added.
McLaughlin downplayed her role in the hoax after it was found out, but she is widely believed to be behind the phony account.
“To the extent that I have people engage with me on Twitter using accounts not associated with their names, I try to do that in good faith assuming they are authentic,” she said.
The social justice community is in an uproar against McLaughlin for allegedly perpetrating this hoax.
“Catfishing is not a nice thing to do and to catfish as queer indigenous person — and then publicly kill that person off — is unconscionable behavior,” wrote Chanda Prescod-Weinstein, who works as an assistant professor of physics and astronomy at the University of New Hampshire.
“Impersonating a Native American survivor of sexual assault is cruel in a time when people are so aware of missing and murdered women and when so many Native women have risked coming forward, using their real names,” she added.
Anna Fore Waymack, a Ph.D. candidate at Cornell University, said that she found McLaughlin’s “digital redface” to be abhorrent. She accused McLaughlin of having “blood on her hands” as this “hoax of ‘forced to teach, died of COVID’ is hitting the news right as [university] admins make final decisions about reopening. About whether our fears are overblown.”
As usual, the social justice lefties pushing their victim racket are disingenuous. They have to create fake oppression when it does not exist.
