Brian Stelter accuses Trump of arguing with athletes to distract from Russia – misses one glaring problem

CNN’s Brian Stelter didn’t know how he wanted to attack President Donald Trump on Saturday, therefore he did it two ways.

First, he insinuated that the president’s attack on NFL and NBA players, was because they are black.

The president was “talking about mostly African-American athletes who have been taking a knee, protesting the National anthem, making a statement at football games,” Stelter said.

He also mentioned the president rescinding his invitation to the NBA’s Stephen Curry to visit the White House.

The CNN host read a statement by the NFL criticizing the president’s remarks, before he reloaded and took aim at President Trump again.

“The president seems to want these conflicts. He embraces these conflicts. I sometimes wonder if it’s because he doesn’t want people talking about the ongoing Russia investigation,” he charged.

Which is astounding because CNN spent a good amount of time on Saturday talking about how the president called the Russia the “Russia hoax” in his speech on Friday.

Perhaps Stelter didn’t hear it.

Perhaps Stelter hears what he wants to hear.
