President Trump should not allow anyone in his administration to appear on CNN. The detestable Jeff Zucker must have instructed Brianna Keilar to viciously attack Peter Navarro, the White House trade adviser. In the interview Keilar made all kinds of ridiculous accusations against the Trump administration. She also prevented Navarro from responding to her attacks by consistently interrupting him. It was disgusting. However, the segment once again showed that “fake news” is the perfect description for CNN. The segment also showed why CNN is consistently in last place for cable news ratings. No one who seeks objectivity should watch this trash network.
WH trade adviser Navarro clashes with CNN anchor, tells her to cover pandemic ‘without frightening America’
By Fox News, March 26, 2020:
At one point, Navarro told Keilar that CNN should report on the virus in “a sober way without frightening America and just having reasonable conversations when somebody from the White House comes on, instead of just shouting in our ear.”
The interview turned contentious when Navarro sought to bring up the Obama administration’s record on pandemic preparedness.

Keilar interjected: “Peter, why are you wasting your time on this and not solving the problem that you have? Peter, why are you even talking about this?”
“You made the claim that this administration was ill-prepared,” Navarro responded, but Keilar protested that she didn’t. In her initial question, Keilar had pointed out the discrepancy between America’s capacity for ventilators and what experts said might be needed.
At this point, Navarro raised his hands in apparent frustration, saying: “I’m trying to respond and you keep interrupting me,” he said. In response, Keilar pressed Navarro on whether he would answer the question about ventilators.
“That’s the problem,” Navarro said. “We have woken up to the fact that we did not have adequate materials in our stockpiles and more importantly, all of our supply chain is spread out across the world at a time when 10 out of the top 20 countries that provide us with pharmaceuticals are imposing export restrictions.”
He added that the administration was moving quickly to address the issue. “But don’t tell me that we were ill-prepared for this,” he told Keilar, “because we inherited a system of testing, we inherited a system of stockpiles that was woefully inadequate for this and there was plenty of people [in the] last two administrations who had wake-up calls and they went back to sleep.”
