Orange Man Bad!
At least that’s what CNN wants us to believe.
But in a bombshell recording released by Tucker Carlson Tonight, CNN’s head honcho Jeff Zucker told disgraced lawyer, Michael Cohen, that he wanted to put Donald Trump on a weekly show post election back in 2016!
From Fox News:
CNN president Jeff Zucker oversees a network that has been nothing but hostile to President Trump, but newly revealed audio of a March 10, 2016 conversation with then-Trump attorney Michael Cohen shows Zucker attempting to cozy up to the then-Republican front-runner.
In the recording, obtained by "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Zucker boasted of the importance of his network, telling Cohen "you cannot be elected president of the United States without CNN."
"You guys have had great instincts, great guts and great understanding of everything," Zucker told Cohen. "But you're missing the boat on how it works going forward."
Later in the conversation, Zucker expressed hesitation about contacting Cohen by email while referring to Trump fondly as "the boss."
"I'm very conscious of not putting too much in email, as you're a lawyer, as you understand," Zucker is heard telling Cohen. "And, you know, as fond as I am of the boss, he also has a tendency, like, you know, if I call him or I email him, he then is capable of going out at his next rally and saying that we just talked and I can't have that, if you know what I'm saying."
He continued, "It's not that I don't want to talk to [Trump] every day. I've just got to be careful, because, I've just got to be careful ... I just don't want him talking about it on the campaign trail ... But you know what? I'm going to give him a call right now and I'm going wish him luck in the debate tonight."
Zucker was referring to that night's GOP primary debate, which CNN was hosting.
The CNN chief then floated potential post-election plans for Trump, who Zucker previously had worked with as the former CEO of NBC Universal at the height of the popularity of Trump's reality show "The Apprentice."
"I have all these proposals for him," Zucker told Cohen. "I want to do a weekly show with him and all this stuff."
Either Donald Trump is Hitler Von Satan personified like CNN would have us believe, or simply, Jeff Zucker is just one more sycophant turned critic of the President.
Anthony Scaramucci loved President Trump, until he was fired.
Michael Cohen worshipped Donald Trump (his words) until he was caught dead to rights by Mueller on fraud unrelated to the President.
Add Zucker to the list of Deep State puppets working night and day to discredit the only man in government who doesn't owe them a thing.
