CNN Analyst Blames Trump for Will Smith Slapping Chris Rock at Oscars

The obsession continues. A CNN analyst blame former President Trump for Will Smith’s violent behavior when he slapped comedian Chris Rock in the face during the 94th Annual Academy Awards.

Debate is running rampant in the media as to whether or not the slap was staged. It might as well have been considering it was the only mentionable moment in the entire poorly rated awards show.

Nonetheless, CNN’s Asha Rangappa says the rest of the Hollywood elite only stuck around the Dolby Theater after the attack because of Trump. “Soo did like anyone walk out after that happened??? Or are we getting an independent psychological case study on how Trump got normalized?” Rangappa questioned on Twitter.

 

The CNN analyst has a history of making completely asinine longshot comments about completely unrelated situations. Last year Rangappa compared a Southwest pilot who objected to President Biden’s vaccine mandate to an ISIS sympathizer.

After news broke that a Southwest pilot ended his flight by saying “Let’s Go Brandon” on the intercom, Rangappa tweeted, “As an experiment, I’d love for an @SouthwestAir pilot to say ‘Long live ISIS’ before taking off. My guess is that 1) the plane would be immediately grounded; 2) the pilot fired; and 3) a statement issued by the airline within a matter of hours.”

On Monday Rangappa also tweeted that Trump fans are sending her hate male because Fox News reported on her Twitter comments. She then proceeded to call Trump voters stupid:

“The MAGA hate emails have begun, which tells me that the below tweet has made its way to the Breitbart ecosystem. The sad part is that they are so stupid they don’t realize I’m not comparing Smith to Trump, I’m comparing the audience to them.”

The question now is, will Hollywood elites cancel Rangappa and demand her resignation because she had the audacity to compare them to, gasp, Trump followers? Let’s hope so.

    You are delusional. Why don’t you blame the idiot in the White House now for stealing an election, the way he handled Afghanistan, real rich of him to say that Putin needs to be replaced.

    It appears as though the “lowlife network” CNN has a monopoly on hiring idiots. Here is another case of beauty and no freaking brains. I begining to wonder if maybe the idiot network may put something in air in the studios or in the drinking water there to cause their people to become unstable ??? They certainly are not normal !!!

    The sad part is Rangappa is so stupid she doesn’t understand that nobody knows how her Trump tweets relate to Trump, other than showing that she hates him.

    Most of what we need to know comes from her bio which states she worked for FBI. IF we needed more support for the idea that FBI is a failure and irredeemably corrupt we can add this into the pile. It seems hardened bureaucrats love to obsess about this former POTUS.

    Old saying goes like this:. Better to remain silent and let everyone wonder how stupid you are then to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.

WSJ: Corporate Dirty Pool in Washington’s Senate Race

Published

The Wall Street Journal’s,  Kimberly A. Strassel wrote a piece identifying how the Democrats are so worried about Washington Senator Patty Murray’s re-election “that Seattle’s corporate heavyweights are playing dirty pool on her behalf.”

Murray, a leftwing progressive, has faced little competition while in office; until now. Tiffany Smiley, a Republican nurse and entrepreneur “is pummeling Ms. Murray from every direction and laying out her own detailed reform agenda” adds the WSJ.

A RealClearPolitics average has Ms. Murray winning by 8 points. Another poll has Smiley within 2 points. Regardless, It’s close enough that “Majority Leader Chuck Schumer recently transferred $500,000 of his own campaign cash to Ms. Murray’s campaign.”

Money from Schumer isn’t the only liberal panic dough. “Starbucks, the Seattle Times and the Seattle Seahawks—are actively attempting to sabotage the Smiley campaign, albeit in a distinctly underhanded fashion” writes the WSJ. “Their targets are two effective Smiley campaign ads.”

At the center of the fight are two of Smiley’s ads: “Game Day” and “Cup of Coffee.”

Strassel reports:

In “Game Day” the Republican is in a kitchen preparing to watch a football game, hitting Ms. Murray and Democrats for the spiraling cost of food. In “Cup of Coffee,” she stands in front of a derelict building. Barely visible at the top, and seen backward, is the store’s faded Starbucks sign. Ms. Smiley hits Ms. Murray for rising crime, while the ad flashes two Seattle Times headlines, one of which reads: “Starbucks to Close 5 Seattle Stores Over Safety Concerns.”

“Game Day” hit the airwaves Sept 1. Five days later, according to documents I obtained, the Smiley campaign received a terse email from the Seahawks claiming a trademark violation. The ad briefly shows Ms. Smiley’s husband, Scotty—a retired U.S. Army Ranger who was blinded by shrapnel in Iraq—expressing alarm that “even beer” prices are rising. You only see his shoulders above a tall couch—and if you get a magnifying glass you might make out a letter or two from the word “Seahawks.” The letter insisted the Smiley campaign “immediately cease” its “unauthorized commercial use.” Nothing like your local sports franchise dumping cease-and-desist orders on wounded veterans.

“Cup of Coffee” went live on Sept. 20. The next day, the Seattle Times sent an email to the “Jane Smiley” campaign—apparently without running it past its fact-checking desk—accusing it of “unauthorized use of The Seattle Times logo and two headlines” in violation of the paper’s “copyright and trademark.” It demanded the campaign remove any references to the paper not only in its own ad, but in an NBC News article about the ad’s launch.

Two days later, Starbucks sent a certified letter saying the campaign was appropriating its intellectual property, and complaining it might “create an unfounded association in the minds of consumers between Starbucks and your campaign.” It insisted the campaign either pull the ad or alter it to strip both the (barely visible, backward) sign and the Seattle Times headline referencing Starbucks.

One such letter may be the product of an overzealous lawyer, but three in a row looks like more than a coincidence. One might even wonder if some Murray staffer was putting bugs in Seattle business leaders’ ears. And while corporate political-action committees routinely play politics by making donations, it’s something else for individual companies to go to bat for a candidate via behind-the-scenes threats based on tenuous legal claims. These letters were bound to cost the Smiley campaign money and headaches and might have pushed it off the airwaves.

The campaign didn’t roll over. It made a painless accommodation to the “Game Day” ad, blurring the jersey colors to obscure anything distinct. In a legal letter sent Thursday to Starbucks, the campaign rebutted the company’s infringement claims, running through political speech protections and noting that no reasonable person would ever think a factual ad about shuttered Starbucks stores amounted to a coffee-chain endorsement. It suggested Starbucks focus on its own problems, like its recent union woes.

The Seattle Times also received a letter refuting its claims, but it got something in addition. The Smiley campaign on Thursday filed a Federal Election Commission complaint, charging the paper with providing the Murray campaign a prohibited in-kind contribution. It turns out that Ms. Murray has also used a Seattle Times headline in her ads. Her “First 2016 Ad” sports the newspaper’s logo under the headline: “Patty Murray’s and Paul Ryan’s Teamwork Is a Model for Congress.” It seems the Times has a different legal standard for candidates it endorses.

As the FEC complaint notes, the Smiley campaign would have to spend an estimated $5,000 to remove and update the ad—“costs that Patty Murray does not have to accrue.” It cites FEC regulations that provide “if a corporation makes its resources available for free, it must do so for all candidates.”

Don’t expect the Seattle corporate set to do anything on behalf of Ms. Smiley soon. But it shouldn’t be too much to ask that they do their politicking straight—and out in the open.
