‘CNN doesn’t want to go on the record’: Glenn chides MSM for Cohen-Trump narrative

President Donald Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, released a secret recording of a conversation in which the two appear to be discussing hush money for former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who claims to have had an affair with Donald Trump in 2010.

The recording, which aired on CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time" Tuesday night, does not definitively answer the question whether then-candidate Trump directed Cohen to make payments to McDougal two months before the 2016 presidential election because the audio is muddled and unclear. Though Trump can be heard using the word "cash," the meaning behind the word's use is still a matter of dispute on both sides.

Did Trump say "Pay in cash" or did he say "Don't pay in cash"? The truth is no one knows, but the mainstream media is spinning the story to sound as though this tape is the ultimate smoking gun against Trump.

"Micheal Cohen is a sleazeball with a capital S and we know that," said Glenn on today's show. "But the media also knows that ultimately no one will care. So what did they do? They concentrated on this one line that sounded most guilty."

"Why isn't there a transcript included with the audio? Why CNN? I mean is there really a clear dispute over what was said there?" added Glenn. "The vast majority of the media is reporting this as if Trump said 'Pay in cash' because it sounds more guilty if that's what he said."

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."
