CNN Reporter Tries To Get Syrian Man To Attack Trump, Instead He Slams Liberal Hypocrisy
CNN’s Brooke Baldwin interviewed Syrian refugee Kassem Eid to get his thoughts on the Trump administration’s military intervention in Syria, but things didn’t go as planned when Eid began heaping praises on the American president.
Kassem Eid is reported to have survived a 2013 chemical weapons attack, and Baldwin asked him a loaded question about how President Trump seems to care about saving Syrian babies by intervening after the chemical attacks, but then at the same time, seemed to not care about Syrian babies because he wanted to issue a travel-ban on the country of Syria.
To drive the point home, Baldwin chose to air a clip of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, criticizing the Trump administration for the travel ban.
Rather than joining in on the Trump bashing, and attacking the administration for not wanting to let Syrian refugees into the country, Eid expressed his gratitude to Donald Trump, and complained that it was Barack Obama’s inaction in the area that caused the Syrian refugee crisis to begin with.
“With all due respect, I didn’t see each and every person who was demonstrating after the travel ban. I didn’t see you three days ago when people were gassed to death- when civilians were gassed to death.
I didn’t see you in 2013 when 1,400 people were gassed to death. I didn’t see you raising your voice against President Obama’s inaction in Syria that let us refugees- that made us refugees get kicked out of Syria.”
He went on to say that the people of Syria simply want a place of safety, and that they don’t want to leave their homeland to become refugees in America. They want to stay in their country, but to do so, they need to know that their are safe spaces there for them.
“If you really care about refugees, if you really care about helping us, please help us stay in our country. … We don’t want to come to the United States.
We want to stay in our country. With all do respect, this is hypocrisy. If you really care, help us stay in our country. We don’t want to become refugees.”
No word on if anyone at CNN was disciplined or fired for allowing a pro-Trump sentiment to actually be allowed to be aired.
