Meanwhile, CNN recently covered Donald Trump’s speech on Thursday — Jake Tapper, Dana Bash and Abby Philip all had strong words about the speech, with Abby Phillip delivering a particularly powerful blow.
“This President clearly knows that this is not going to end well for him, or he believes that, and he’s trying to take the rest of the country down with him. He’s trying to take the voting system down with him, the democratic process down with him,” Phillip said.
“And beyond being completely selfish, it also is just wrong. And as you said, where’s the intervention? I don’t know where it is. And it probably should have happened months ago, because as you said, Dana, he already told us he was going to do this. He’s already said months ago, ‘The only way I could lose this election is if there were widespread massive fraud,’ which we knew was not going to happen.
