American journalist Julia Loffe claimed with a straight face on national TV that President Donald Trump has "radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did."
The Daily Wire's Ryan Saavedra has more:
Loffe, who was previously fired from Politico after she suggested Trump was "f***ing his daughter" Ivanka, blamed the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting over the weekend on Trump and conservative political commentator Glenn Beck.
It should be noted that Beck, although conservative, is no fan of the president.
"I think this president, one of the things that he really launched his presidential run on is talking about Islamic radicalization," Loffe said on CNN’s "The Lead" with Jake Tapper. "And this president has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did. I mean, the way he talks, the way he — the way he —"
"That is, it's unconscionable for you to say that," commentator David Urban responded.
"The way that he talks, the way that he allows these — the way he winks and nods to these groups," Loffe continued. "The way he says, 'I know I’m not supposed to say it, but I’m a nationalist.' The way that he hems and haws when he has to condemn these people, gritting his teeth says, says 'fine, OK, I condemn this.'"
That might be the most ridiculous thing we've heard on CNN – and that's saying something.
