It will be interesting to see how President Trump is written into the history books, given that history books, at least the ones used in public schools, are written by ideologues bent on recording history much like the the mainstream media records “news”.

It is frightening to see the level of disdain the corporate news cartels have for Donald Trump and his administration. That’s why it is so refreshing to see them humiliated when they are caught off guard in a live broadcast.

CNN’s Victor Blackwell was the most recent recipient of the “Oh My Gawd” award when he got caught in a trap and couldn’t backpedal fast enough.

According to Conservative Tribune:

When establishment media believes the narrative they push on the public, they can get themselves into trouble. As an example of this, it appears CNN may have thought they had a slam dunk of a story to bash President Donald Trump over — with furloughed workers as guests.

They were wrong. And just how wrong they were became clear in an interview that went in a very different direction from what CNN seems to have expected.

CNN’s Victor Blackwell introduced the topic of the partial government shutdown and border wall funding by referencing a statement from Trump. In it, Trump said he had support from furloughed workers.

“Many of those workers have said to me and communicated, ‘stay out until you get the funding for the wall,’” Trump said, according to ABC News. “These federal workers want the wall. The only one that doesn’t want the wall are the Democrats.”

Blackwell asked his guests, federal law enforcement officers Charles and Jill Gilbert, if Trump actually had their support. Both had continued to work without pay during the partial government shutdown.

That’s when the boom got dropped on him.

Their response appears to have left Blackwell a bit stumped. As he continued to question them, and even tried to set them up to answer a certain way, they didn’t play along — which left Blackwell silenced at one point and struggling for words.

Charles made it clear that Trump has their support. He also explained why Trump had it and why they felt the wall was worth the sacrifice.

“If its going to defend our country and keep illegals out, keep people from hurting my children, (people) that don’t belong here, yes, I’m all for the wall,’ he said. He added that he would support another shutdown in three weeks if it comes to that.

The couple did not blame Trump, but did point at Congress for the trouble. Jill used the example of their prison work to explain what Congress needs to do.

“We don’t stop what we’re doing in a prison. Our daily operations continue to go regardless if we like someone or not,” she said.

“We still have to have a working relationship with that person. If we don’t like them, we can tell ’em we don’t like them, but we’re still gonna walk out that front door with them, regardless of what happens in that prison.”
