Hillary Clinton SHAMELESSLY exploits 9/11 attacks to bash GOP — the look on CNN host's face says it all

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined CNN's Dana Bash on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks to talk about how she hopes Americans will find a way to put political differences aside and "come together as a country" as we did following the attacks, only to turn around and suggest that "political and ideological" extremism "during this time in our country" is every bit as dangerous. Clinton's comments echoed President Joe Biden's latest divisive rhetoric calling "MAGA Republicans" a threat to the country.

"We were able to come together as a country at that really terrible time. We put aside differences. I wish we could find ways of doing that again," Clinton said on "State of the Union" Sunday.

"We have also, I think, been reminded about how important it is to try to deal with extremism of any kind, especially when it uses violence to try to achieve political and ideological goals. So, I'm one who thinks that there are lessons still to be learned from what happened to us on 9/11 that we should be very aware of during this time in our country and the world's history," she added.

"This is the sort of doublespeak that I'm always warning about," BlazeTV host Dave Rubin said on "The Rubin Report" Monday.

"When [Clinton] talks about 'extremism of any kind,' you can see what she did there ... she talks about, 'there was this horrific thing that happened 21 years ago, 9/11,' but then she's linking it to Jan. 6, [implying] somehow the Republicans are the ones that are violent and fascistic," he pointed out.

Dave went on to recall the violent extremism of groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter, who "were rampaging through our cities" for months during the summer of 2020.

Dave then played a video clip from 2016 of then-presidential candidate Clinton's infamous "basket of deplorables" speech in which she called Trump supporters "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic" to debunk the claim that Republicans are responsible for today's divisive political climate.

CNN's Dana Bash leaves Elizabeth Warren STAMMERING when she points out HUGE hole in loan forgiveness logic

CNN's Dana Bash asked Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on "State of the Union" this week if she thinks President Joe Biden's student loan forgiveness plan is fair to those Americans who have worked hard to pay off their debt or to not go into debt in the first place. Warren thought she'd managed to confuse and distract her host (and audience) with the usual effusion of overly-emotive theatrics, but Bash flipped the script and stumped Warren with one simple statement.

Asked what she would say to people who think student loan forgiveness is "really not fair" and that the government isn't helping people with "other struggles," Warren launched into a sob story about her "daddy" who "ended up as a janitor" and had no money to make her dreams of becoming a "public school teacher" come true.

"But I found a public university that cost 50 dollars a semester, and for a price I could pay for on a part-time waitressing job, I finished a four-year diploma. I became a special education teacher and it opened a million doors for me. That opportunity is not out there today for any of our kids," Warren preached.

"Our public education system is no longer creating opportunities for kids like me and other kids whose families can't afford to write a check. Instead, we're saying to these young people, you've got to get an education, but we are going to wrap the chains of debt around you, and for many, you're going to be paying it for decades into the future, including getting Social Security checks garnished. That's not the America we want. We want to be an America of opportunity," she continued.

At this point, Bash interrupted Warren's well-rehearsed speech to say, "yeah, but I'm not sure that relieving this amount of debt changes the cost of college. The cost of college is still exorbitant."

After several seconds of stunned silence (complete with a priceless deer-in-the-headlights facial expression,) Warren pulled it together enough to find someone else to blame for the exorbitant cost of college — in this case, the American taxpayers.

"Well, look, part of what [student loan forgiveness] does is it deals with the debt that has been built up because the cost of college has gone up because taxpayers have made fewer investments in our public colleges and universities," Warren stammered.

CNN's Dana Bash decries 'cancel culture B.S.' after social media melts down over her response to Trump video

CNN's Dana Bash faced an outpouring of outrage from the network's viewers on social media after she merely pointed out that the president appeared to have a different tone in a video statement he posted to Twitter.

Bash made the comments on Thursday a day after chaos erupted at the U.S. Capitol when supporters of the president attempted to forcefully stop Congress from verifying the election results. CNN anchor Erin Burnett asked Bash to respond to the video the president posted where he scolded the rioters.

"This is though very different from what he said yesterday," said Burnett. "So Dana, what's your reaction to this, as we hear it now?"

"Well," responded Bash, "it is obviously a very different tone."

"Yes," agreed Burnett.

Many viewers turned to social media to express their outrage at Bash for pointing out the different tone from the president.

"I don't f***ing believe it but @DanaBashCNN just said Trump is showing "a new tone" I'm not f***ing kidding," tweeted Matt Negrin, a producer for "The Daily Show."

He posted a short video of the comments to his Twitter account.

"In the most generous interpretation of this, Dana didn't have a good analysis and just had to say something to fill the air. @DanaBashCNN you should apologize this is absolutely f***ing nuts. Trump incited a mob that killed people," he added.

Others jumped in to attack Bash for her comment.

"Dana Bash said he struck a very different tone. F*** her," said one commenter.

"A different tone? What's this dumb a** Dana Bash talking about? His spray tan tone????? F*** outta here," said another Twitter user.

"Dana Bash went back to talking about Trump's new tone. I wish I was joking. I wish I was joking," tweeted Adam Parkhomenko, a Democratic strategist and consultant.

Bash tried to explain herself, which solicited even more online abuse.

"I almost never respond such things - but your attack on me tonight was totally out of bounds and out of context. What the president said was different. I didn't defend it. I explained it. With reporting. I also called out his lies in the video," Bash tweeted.

"These times are hard enough," she added. "Engaging in cancel culture B.S. has got to stop - especially when it comes to journalists putting facts first. Enough."

Matt Doric, a CNN communications director, also defended Bash while criticizing Parkhomenko.

"This is such a cheap shot. And such willfully ignorant BS. It's even cheaper bc you didn't have the guts to tag her," he tweeted.
