CNN Panel Erupts After Contributor Slams Network for ‘Peddling Lies’ About Blacks Who Work for Trump

Conservative pundit (above, right) easily names those of color who are employed by the administration — others don't like it

Paris Dennard, a frequent conservative political commentator on CNN (pictured above right), is known to push back on that network’s highly biased narrative and reliably unfair take about all things President Donald Trump.

“Given the political role that race has played in this administration, Dennard presents a remarkably unique point of view,” noted Mediaite of Dennard, “a man of color who defends President Donald Trump, often on issues of race.”

During CNN’s “New Day” program on Monday morning — just a day after former senior Trump aide Omarosa Manigault Newman spent time on NBC’s “Meet the Press” to promote her book, “Unhinged,” along with snippets of audiotape of her firing by White House chief of staff John Kelly — Dennard was challenged to list people of color who worked in the Trump administration.

He immediately did so with ease, rattling off a number of individuals.

When he sensed he was being cut off “for time,” Dennard called out the program on it.

He said, “You want to wrap up the time because this is not important to you because you want to peddle the lies of Bakari Sellers [a former Democratic state representative in South Carolina-turned-pundit] and others, saying that there aren’t blacks in this administration.” (Sellers is shown above left.)

The claim that CNN was “peddling lies” was met with a “palpable wince” from Dennard’s fellow panelists, CNN senior political analyst John Avlon and Sellers himself, according to Mediaite.

Host John Berman quickly went to commercial. That’s the go-to for a host who doesn’t like hearing the truth when it runs counter to the popular and continuous leftist narrative.
