Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “CNN Anchor Drags Trump Campaign Adviser: ‘You’re Just Saying a Bunch of Crap!’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

CNN anchor Brianna Keilar on Tuesday got fed up with Trump campaign senior advisor Mercedes Schlapp during a heated exchange on mail-in voting, eventually telling the longtime lobbyist that their conversation was “pointless” because she was “just saying a bunch of crap.”

Keilar, who in recent weeks has held various pro-Trump figures’ feet to the fire in combative interviews, brought on Schlapp to talk about President Donald Trump’s sudden pivot to encouraging Floridians to vote by mail after baselessly warning for months that mail-in ballots are rife with fraud.

“Whether you call it Vote by Mail or Absentee Voting, in Florida the election system is Safe and Secure, Tried and True,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday. “Florida’s Voting system has been cleaned up (we defeated Democrats attempts at change), so in Florida I encourage all to request a Ballot & Vote by Mail!”

Schlapp was left with the unenviable task of defending the president’s whiplash-inducing hypocrisy, attempting to not only make the distinction between absentee and mail-in voting but also trying to justify why some states’ mail vote is “safe and secure” while others are not.

Schlapp continually insisted to definitively claim that a persistent “fraud issue” with mail-in voting exists, prompting Keilar to fire back that voter fraud is “statistically insignificant” with mail ballots.
