'Pathetic!' MAGA reacts with fury to CNN's cutting off Trump spokesperson's angry ran [View all]

This made me smile. Tapper and CNN need to also cut off TFG's mic during the debate


Former President Donald Trump's followers were shocked Monday when a campaign spokesperson was not allowed to finish her angry rant on national television — and they didn't hold back.

Karoline Leavitt was forced to air her grievances on X instead after an attempted character attack on upcoming presidential debate moderator Jake Tapper spurred CNN anchor Kasie Hunt to cut the Trump spokeswoman's mic.

"You cut off my microphone for bringing up the debate moderator’s history of anti-Trump lies," Leavitt declared. "This proved our point that President Trump will not be treated fairly on Thursday."

Hunt also clarified on X her position on the matter, saying it was a question of respect.

"You come on my show, you respect my colleagues," Hunt wrote. "Period."
