CNN has gotten caught again. They failed to disclose that one of their soft-ball questioners was actually a sycophant for the candidate they were addressing.
During an “LGBTQ Town Hall” last week, Elizabeth Warren was treated with kid gloves and had questions teed up for her to knock out of the left-wing park. The event itself was absolutely bonkers, with some Democrats recommending punishing churches for not endorsing same-sex marriage. Other insanity ran the gambit from transgender issues to Joe Biden trying way too hard to show he’s down with the gay.
At one point, Warren was treated to a question in which she seemed to have the “zinger” ready to go. Now, we know why. The man was a max donor to her campaign and likely coordinated with her prior.

Look at the love in that guy’s eyes.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo introduced Morgan Cox at the Thursday town hall as “the chair of the Human Rights Campaign board of directors” who was part of “a real estate investment firm in Dallas, Texas.” Cox asked Warren what she would say if “a supporter approaches you and says, ‘Senator, I’m old-fashioned and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman.’”
“Well, I’m going to assume it’s a guy who said that and I’m going to say, ‘Then just marry one woman. I’m cool with that,’” Warren said, before adding to uproarious laughter, “Assuming you can find one.”
The CNN chyron described Cox as “Chair, Human Rights Campaign Board of Directors.” It could have just as easily identified Cox as “Donor, Elizabeth Warren.”
I’m trying to figure out why she would “assume it’s a guy?” Are women incapable of holding religious beliefs on marriage, because I know plenty who do. I’m sure they’d be surprised to learn they don’t actually believe what they believe. That part of her answer was obviously already thought out and it shows how much a try-hard Warren is. Perhaps I’m just naive, but this pander-rific campaign she’s running, where she pretends men are the bane of existence, has to be turning some people off outside of the socialist throes.
Absolutely nothing is authentic about her approach. Every line is carefully crafted and she only puts herself in position to receive questions from friendly figures. Of course, CNN’s Chris Cuomo was just such a figure and was practically drooling the whole time. Warren makes Democrats feel smart so they adore her. She’s the “intellectual” choice in their eyes.

Back to this audience member, there’s just no way it was a coincidence that a max donor to her campaign ended up getting to ask her something she was clearly ready for. The question is whether CNN is directly coordinating this stuff or whether they are just passively allowing it to happen. I’d put money on the former. There’s no reason to believe that the liberal network is above doing such a thing, especially when many see Joe Biden as a sinking ship. They don’t want to feel the Bern and Warren is their gal.
