CNN Host Rips Trump for Floating ‘Shameful’ Vince Foster Conspiracy Theory ‘Untethered to Reality’

CNN host Jake Tapper delivered a scathing monologue Tuesday afternoon aimed at presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump for floating a decades-old conspiracy theory about the death of a Clinton White House aide.

“Once again, journalists are in the unhappy predicament of trying to decide whether and how to cover false allegations raised by a candidate for president of the United States,” Tapper said at the outset of his two-minute monologue.

Trump told The Washington Post in an interview published Monday that the suicide of Vincent Foster was a “very serious” issue and appeared “very fishy.”

Tapper noted that investigations by Park Service Police, CNN, Indecent counsels Robert Fiske and Ken Starr and congressional reviews all concluded Foster’s death was a result of suicide.

“So one would think case closed, right? Wrong,” Tapper said. “Donald Trump in an interview appearing in today’s Washington Post called the circumstances surrounded Vince Foster’s death ‘very fishy’ and said, ‘I don’t bring Foster’s death up because I don’t know enough to really discuss it.’”

“This is not a pro-Clinton position. Or an anti-Trump position. It is a pro-truth position.”

“Right, of course. Except you just did that, Mr. Trump,” the CNN host continued. “You lent credence to a bizarre and unfounded conspiracy theory. But you’re right, it’s not fair that you did that. Certainly not to Mr. Foster’s widow or their children.”

“To be clear, the notion that this was a murder is a fiction born of delusion and untethered to reality and contractidted by evidence revised in six different investigations,” Tapper added. “One of them by Ken Starr, hardly a Clinton defender. To say otherwise is ridiculous and frankly shameful. Again, this is not a pro-Clinton position. Or an anti-Trump position. It is a pro-truth position.”

This is not the first time Tapper has taken time to debunk a “shameful” Trump claim. Earlier this month, he delivered a similar monologue when the real estate mogul suggested Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) father was connected to the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

    • Hordes of small and mid-size banks are now in trouble, and that is really bad news because those institutions issue most of the mortgages, auto loans and credit cards that our economy runs on.  The other day, I asked my viewers to “imagine what our country will look like if the banking system implodes and the economy plunges into a depression”, because if our banks continue to collapse that is precisely where we are headed. JPMorgan Chase & Co analysts estimate that the “most vulnerable” U.S. banks are likely to have lost a total of about $1 trillion in deposits since last year, with half of the outflows occurring in March following the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank. There are more than 4,000 banks in the United States right now, and the vast majority of them are rapidly losing deposits. As a result, U.S. banks are being forced to turn to the Fed for help at a very frightening rate… Banks have been flocking to emergency lending facilities set up after the failures of SVB and Signature. Data released Thursday showed that institutions took a daily average of $116.1 billion of loans from the central bank’s discount window, the highest since the financial crisis, and have taken out $53.7 billion from the Bank Term Funding Program. Meanwhile, the banking crisis in Europe has taken another very alarming turn. Deutsche Bank shares fell on Friday following a spike in credit default swaps Thursday night, as concerns about the stability of European banks persisted. The Frankfurt-listed stock was down 14% at one point during the session but trimmed losses to close 8.6% lower on Friday afternoon. The German lender’s Frankfurt-listed shares retreated for a third consecutive day and have now lost more than a fifth of their value so far this month. The emergency rescue of Credit Suisse by UBS , in the wake of the collapse of U.S.-based Silicon Valley Bank, has triggered contagion concern among investors, which was deepened by further monetary policy tightening from the U.S. Federal Reserve on Wednesday. But what is going to happen to our economy when the flow of mortgages, auto loans and credit cards is greatly restricted? Our country is already being torn to shreds like a 20 dollar suit, and economic conditions are still relatively stable. So what is going to happen when we do fall into a very deep economic depression? These are such perilous times, and they are only going to get more difficult in the months ahead.
