CNN anchor Ana Cabrera falsely claimed on Sunday that President Donald Trump and Donald Trump Jr. made racial remarks over the last week that white men have a lot to fear.
“President Trump and his son Don Jr. said this week white men have a lot to fear right now,” Cabrera said during a segment on black people who have had the police called on them by white people.
Trump and Trump Jr. never said that, though.
Earlier this month Trump said it was a “very scary time for young men in America” as he spoke about men being falsely accused of crimes as it related to the allegations made against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Trump Jr. told the Daily Mail earlier this month that he was concerned for his sons and his daughters during the #MeToo era and that he was most concerned for his boys as he suggested that he was concerned that they could be falsely accused by someone with political motives.
Andrew Surabian, adviser to Donald Trump Jr., slammed CNN in a statement to The Daily Wire and said the network owed an immediate apology to Trump and Trump Jr.
“The provable lies and disgraceful race-baiting espoused by CNN anchor Ana Cabrera are especially shameful coming from a network that unironically brands itself as the ‘realest name in news,'” Surabian said. “If CNN has even a sliver of journalistic credibility left, they will issue an immediate on air apology to both President Trump and Don Jr.”
