CNN host Christine Amanpour believes the words “lock her up,” a direct hit on twice-failed presidential nominee Hillary Clinton dating back to 2015, should be classified as “hate speech.”

For real.

She actually thinks this.

Even worse? She wants the phrase banned.

From Daily Wire:

During an interview with former FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday, CNN host Christiane Amanpour said that Trump supporters chanting “lock her up” qualified as “hate speech” and went as far as suggesting that the government should have banned people from saying it.

The controversial remarks came when Amanpour began asking Comey about the FBI’s criminal investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“Of course, ‘Lock her up’ was a feature of the 2016 Trump campaign,” Amanpour said. “Do you, in retrospect, wish that people like yourself, the head of the FBI, I mean, the people in charge of law and order – had shut down that language? That it was dangerous potentially, that it could have created violence, that it’s kind of hate speech? Should that have been allowed?”

James Comey, surprisingly, disagreed with Amanpour, noting, “That’s not a role for government to play. The beauty of this country is, people can say what they want, even if it’s misleading and it’s demagoguery. The people who should have shut it down were Republicans who understand the rule of law and the values that they claim to stand for. Shame on them, but it wasn’t a role for government to play.

WATCH:

Amanpour clearly – CLEARLY – does not understand the point of the First Amendment.

Former Stormy Daniels lawyer, Michael Avenatti, was arrested on Monday for alleged bank and wire fraud in both California and New York.

Reportedly, he attempted to extort Nike for $20 million.

Avenatti had dreams of a 2020 run for president before being canned by Daniels, among numerous other problems over the past few months.

A man said to be a co-conspirator in the Avenatti scheme is the celebrity lawyer of hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett, former quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and many others.

Oh, he’s also a CNN contributor.

Correction…was a CNN contributor.

From The Daily Wire:

“The co-conspirator in that matter is attorney Mark Geragos, two people familiar with the matter said,” the Journal reported. “According to the complaint filed in New York, Mr. Avenatti and Mr. Geragos, the alleged co-conspirator, met with lawyers for Nike in New York on March 19 and threatened to release damaging information unless the company agreed to pay the two lawyers millions of dollars and another $1.5 million to the client Avenatti claimed to represent.”

CNN fired Geragos:

Here’s Geragos giving an interview on former “Empire” actor, Smollett:

Stormy Daniels is not surprised that Avenatti was arrested.

She tweeted, “Knowing what I know now about Michael Avenatti, I am saddened but not shocked by news reports that he has been criminally charged today.

Save conservative media!

Watch: Boy Pummeled By Black Teens for Wearing Trump 2020 Hat On School Bus [Video]

This kid may just grow up to be the next best fighter in boxing history…

Liberals will remain silent on this story. Privately, they will cheer on the attackers for beating a white boy simply for wearing his pro-Trump hat on the school bus. Thanks, Obama. That’s the problem. Liberals in Congress and the mainstream media refuse to acknowledge anti-Trump attackers because they know such violent humans will be voting Democrat in 2020 and forever on. Pretty sad. Check this out, via New York Times: The boy’s mother on Thursday released a 21-second video of the Nov. 21 attack in Hamilton County, where two girls and three boys are seen relentlessly punching him as other students look on and scream in the background. The boy, identified as Tyler, was assaulted for previously wearing to school a Trump 2020 hat that he bought “with his own money” at a flea market several weeks earlier, his mother said. […] The teen was then “steadily” bullied on the bus, getting “tripped” and verbally abused before the situation culminated in the beatdown that required a trip to the hospital, his mother claimed. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QTm5AAZGbA&feature=emb_logo It’s not safe to be a young Trump supporter in school these days. Then again, it’s not really safe to be a Trump supporter outside of school, either. Unfortunately, the media is more concerned on attempting to cover for the likes of Jussie Smollett and Indian activist Nathan Phillips than reporting what truly matters. Case in point: a high schooler was assaulted for wearing his MAGA hat. MSM’s response? Crickets. WATCH: https://twitter.com/RyanAFournier/status/1100462367387910145?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1100462367387910145&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fdailycaller.com%2F2019%2F02%2F26%2Fstudents-maga-apparel-ripped-off%2F How awful is that? People are still, to this day, triggered by a hat, despite the fact that minority unemployment under President Trump is at an all-time low. Where’s the logic? It’s time for journalists to be journalists again and report these types of instances.

Dem Misquotes POTUS In Impeachment Hearing, CNN Agrees With Trump It Was On Purpose

They admitted the truth?

Hold the phone! CNN just reported in favor of President Donald Trump? Either pigs are flying or the sky is falling because something is clearly off, here. But it happened. It actually happened. You’d have to imagine CNN President Jeff Zucker isn’t too pleased, considering he has an agenda to take POTUS down. Aw, shucks. Here’s the deal, via Daily Wire: CNN, which is often hostile in its coverage of President Donald Trump, admitted on Thursday that Trump was “correct” when he said on Thursday that Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee had “purposely misquoted” his July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Here’s what CNN noted: During the debate over impeachment articles, [Democrat] Rep. [Veronica] Escobar, using an analogy to stress the alleged problem in Trump’s phone call with Zelensky, said “I want you to do me a favor though.” This quote replaces the word “us” found in the memo on the call, with the word “me.” Rep. Jackson, when quoting the memo of the call, said that the quote was “I would like you to do a favor though” — removing “us” from the quote. Trump’s response: Dems Veronica Escobar and Jackson Lee purposely misquoted my call. I said I want you to do us (our Country!) a favor, not me a favor. They know that but decided to LIE in order to make a fraudulent point! Very sad. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1205150488280350720?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1205150488280350720&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftrump-democrats-purposely-misquoted-me-in-impeachment-hearing-cnn-hes-correct%2F CNN’s Jim Acosta doesn’t seem so interested in being a journalist. It would be as if he’s more into himself and bashing the Trump administration and putting out tell-all books. Because you demanded it, here’s you daily dose of Jim!
