CNN Slams Democrats for Promoting MAGA Candidates: ‘Undercuts the Whole Argument’ against Trump

CNN has blasted the Democratic Party over reports the Democrats have been running ads to promote pro-Trump Republican candidates.

A CNN panel, including Manu Raju, Kasie Hunt, Jeremy Diamond, and Hans Nichols, argued that the move contradicts the Democrats’ “sky is falling” narrative about President Donald Trump.

Diamond responded, “I think we need to acknowledge that it is a clear strategy, not only have we seen it in Maryland but we’ve seen it play out across gubernatorial races in several other states.

“They are trying to get the more extreme candidate to face the Democrat in the general election.

“They believe that it gives them a better chance.

“But of course, it raises the questions that Gov. Hogan raised about them playing with fire and the dangers of this.

“If Democrats are going to say about these January 6th hearings that democracy is under attack, how can you then also go ahead and prop some of these candidates up?”

“It is a huge risk,” said Hunt.

Diamond said it is “going to be one of the Democrats’ central midterm messages, that the GOP is more extreme than whatever you may think about the Democrats’ leftward pull.”

Hunt said, “propping up these kinds of candidates is contrary to everything else you are telling the American people about where you stand.

“If it ends up that some of these extreme candidates that they’ve propped up get elected actually do make moves in 2024 that jeopardize our presidential election process, they’ll have to answer for that.”

Nichols said:

“It’s not just contrary, it undercuts the whole argument.

“When Democrats tell you that the greatest threat to democracy is Donald Trump-like candidates and the very fate of our republic rests on defeating them and at the same time they are bolstering them for partisan advantage in a tight race.

“Both arguments can’t be true.

“You see why they’re doing it and you see there are obvious strategic advantages and tactical advantages.”

Hunt said, “It might not work and that’s the difference.”

“Be careful what you wish for,” Nichols warned.

“I mean they wished to run against Donald Trump in 2016,” Hunt reminded, “and look where that got them.”
