CNN Host Has Intense Interview With Trump Spokeswoman


Hello everyone! What a week in politics, right?

Just days before the highly anticipated first presidential debate between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, we saw quite the drama unfold live on CNN. Let’s break down the electrifying moment that had everyone talking.

On Monday morning, CNN anchor Kasie Hunt conducted an interview with Karoline Leavitt, Trump’s campaign spokeswoman. It started off as a standard pre-debate chat but quickly escalated. Hunt asked Leavitt about Trump’s strategy for the upcoming debate in Atlanta, Georgia. Leavitt responded confidently, emphasizing Trump’s preparedness and taking a swipe at Biden, implying he needs more guidance from his advisors compared to Trump.

Leavitt then turned the heat up, suggesting the debate would be a “hostile environment” for Trump due to CNN’s perceived bias, particularly from moderators Jake Tapper and Dana Bash. She pointed out that both Tapper and Bash have shown their opinions about Trump over the past eight years.

Now, this is where things got really spicy. Hunt immediately defended her colleagues, calling them “professionals,” and aired clips of Trump’s past remarks about debate moderators. When Leavitt attempted to reiterate her point about bias, Hunt cut her off, insisting they move on from attacking her colleagues. Despite Leavitt’s efforts to make her case, Hunt ended the interview abruptly, stating that Leavitt was welcome to return to discuss Trump and Biden but not to attack CNN’s staff.

Following the cut-off, Hunt stood her ground on social media, posting on X (formerly Twitter) that respect for her colleagues was non-negotiable, regardless of political affiliation. Meanwhile, Leavitt doubled down, releasing a statement to The Post, arguing that the incident only highlighted the unfair treatment Trump is likely to face in the debate. She claimed that cutting off her microphone for pointing out the moderators’ alleged bias only proved their point.

This all happened just before the CNN-hosted debate, which is set to be a blockbuster 90-minute rematch of the 2020 presidential election, moderated by Tapper and Bash. With such a contentious start, the debate is shaping up to be anything but dull.

As we count down to the debate, both sides are gearing up for what promises to be a fiery face-off. Stay tuned, folks, because this political showdown is just getting started!
