CNN’s Scott Jennings OWNS Paul Begala Over Biden Attack On SCOTUS

July 2nd, 2024 1:13 AM

CNN commentator Scott Jennings came off the top rope in response to Paul Begala’s assessment of President Joe Biden’s (brief) speech attacking the Supreme Court’s opinion in Trump v. United States, which delineates and clarifies the scope of presidential immunity, liberal pants-soiling about executive power notwithstanding.

Watch as Begala and Jennings open a broader segment that ultimately ends up being about continued political fallout over President Biden’s catastrophic debate performance:

KAITLAN COLLINS: My team of top political sources joined at the table now, and Paul Begala, when you look at President Biden coming out tonight, clearly he wants the headline coming out of this to be Biden's response to the supreme court ruling, but it's also people were looking at him, how he came out. It- was he going to take questions which, I should note, he did not. He did read off a teleprompter during those remarks.

PAUL BEGALA: Yeah, I thought he did fine. He showed strength. He clearly knows about this. Really quite radical for Joe Biden, who is an institutionalist. Really took on the cCourt, which is very fertile territory. Americans hate the Supreme Court. They think it's biased and corrupt. Why? Because it's biased and corrupt. Two thirds of Americans, 67%, support term limits. 75% support binding ethics codes. Sheldon Whitehouse, the senator from Rhode Island, has bills that would do both of those things. If I was Biden, I would ride that horse. People hate the Supreme Court, they're they’re in the tank for Mr. Trump. They believe, I do, too. So I think that's a great issue for him. 

COLLINS: But do people's disdain for the Supreme Court outrank his concern- the concern that voters potentially may have, we'll wait to see what the polling shows, from last Thursday's debate?

SCOTT JENNINGS: Of course it doesn't! Joe Biden, after cannonballing into an empty swimming pool on Thursday night, came out tonight and spoke for four minutes off of a teleprompter. He's good for four minutes today, as long as somebody else wrote it. After having this completely tone-deaf sort of announcement coming out of this meeting that you wrote about with his family this weekend, where his son the notorious influence peddler and crack addict Hunter Biden says “you gotta keep going”. Also, they were hanging out with Annie Liebowicz(sic), the photographer, which I wasn't even aware she was taking mugshots now. This entire thing, since Thursday, has been one tone-deaf political disaster after another. Tonight, he comes out and attacks the Supreme Court and says, oh, the president cannot do whatever he wants. The same guy, by the way, whose centerpiece of his speeches is: “the Supreme Court tried to stop me, they blocked me but they'll never stop me on student loans”. I don't know what they are doing because they don't know what they're doing. And no one in America knows what they're doing. And that's why Donald Trump's beatin’ his brains in right now.

Begala couldn’t help but wince during that exchange, so thoroughly was his talking point recital shot down. Jennings continued to expose the ghost in the room, Biden’s fitness to remain as president let alone remain as a candidate for president. 

Jennings made note of one very important point. Biden does go around touting his defiance of the Supreme Court on student loans. The Regime Media often overlook this defiance in the interest of serving Biden’s agenda. It’s going to be very difficult for them to continue to do so while at the same time caterwauling about all the new, expanded executive powers supposedly created in the Trump ruling.

If it weren’t for double standards, the media would have none at all.
