There on the CNN split screen this morning were former Obama communications director Jen Psaki, and former Ted Cruz aide Amanda Carpenter. But you could be forgiven for wondering whether CNN had mistakenly switched their names. Because Carpenter was, during a discussion of former Trump aide Rob Porter, far rougher on President Trump.
Claiming that Trump “does not give a whit” about the abuse of women, Carpenter recounted a list of alleged Trump transgressions. Among them, Carpenter mentioned “the rape allegation from his first wife, Ivanka [sic, Ivana].”
Note: Carpenter is the kind of Republican CNN prefers: the sort that will harshly condemn President Trump.
