Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) slammed CNN over its decision to hold a town hall with former President Trump on Wednesday night.
“CNN should be ashamed of themselves,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
“They have lost total control of this ‘town hall’ to again be manipulated into platforming election disinformation, defenses of Jan 6th, and a public attack on a sexual abuse victim.
The audience is cheering him on and laughing at the host.”.
Carroll had accused Trump of raping her in a Bergdorf Goodman department store.
This was a choice to platform lies about the election & Jan 6th w/ no plan but to have their moderator interrupted without consequence.”.
“I think it was a profoundly irresponsible decision,” she added of the town hall. »
