ASSOCIATE PRODUCER: AMERICAN VOTERS “STUPID”

(Jun. 30, 2017) — [Editor’s Note: The video which is the subject of this story contains obscenities on the part of the individuals filmed and is not for children. Watch at your own discretion.]
Early on Friday morning, Project Veritas released its third-in-a-series video featuring a CNN associate producer stating in a private conversation that American voters are stupid and that “90%” of CNN employees believe Donald Trump is unqualified to be president.
Producer Jimmy Carr added that CNN employees believe Trump is “crazy” and that Trump does not care about the issue of “abortion” or other “Republican” concerns. Carr also said he could “guarantee” that Trump has “paid for abortions.”
Carr’s view of American voters is shared by Obamacare chief architect Jonathan Gruber of Harvard University.
Today’s video follows one in which former Obama advisor Van Jones is shown saying that the “Russia” narrative as it relates to Trump and alleged “collusion” is a “nothing-burger.”
The first video released on Tuesday depicts CNN medical producer John Bonifield opining that CNN has no real “evidence” that Trump or any of his campaign aides “colluded” with Russian operatives, an issue which the first cable news network has maintained as front-and-center for months.
In addition to widespread major media coverage, American taxpayers are providing, willingly or not, hundreds of millions of dollars for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to conduct an FBI investigation into the allegation of Trump-Russia collusion.
Mueller is also investigating the extent to which the Russian government interfered or attempted to influence last year’s U.S. elections, an issue of which Trump’s predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama, was reportedly apprised but about which he took little action.
The second half of the new video shows “New Day” co-host Alisyn Camerota, formerly of Fox News, holding a discussion with six Trump voters at the Connecticut state house in Hartford at the end of March. A key line of questioning was that of Trump’s allegation of between three and five million illegal votes having been cast in the 2016 presidential election.
As O’Keefe narrated that part of the video, he claimed that CNN practiced “selective editing” by omitting the remainder of that which one of the panelists, William Baer of New Hampshire, told Camerota about voter fraud.
Trump and CNN have had a particularly adversarial relationship for some time, with Trump labeling the network “very fake news” shortly after he took office.
On Thursday, Trump’s tweets directed at MSNBC co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough dominated news headlines and garnered what was intended as an insulting response from Brzezinski on Twitter.
