CNS Privileges Trump's Lie About Pre-Existing Conditions

Craig Bannister was in full Trump stenography mode in an Oct. 18 blog post:

President Donald Trump is slamming claims by Democrats like Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) that Republicans want to eliminate health care coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.

Trump promised that, not only does he totally support pre-existing condition coverage, but all other Republicans do, too – or, they will, when he gets through with them:

“All Republicans support people with pre-existing conditions, and if they don’t, they will after I speak to them. I am in total support. Also, Democrats will destroy your Medicare, and I will keep it healthy and well.”

In fact, Republicans do want to eliminate health care coverage for those with pre-existing conditions -- something Bannister refused to report.

The biggest example of this is the lawsuit pushed by attorneys general in 20 states, all of them Republican, aimed at abolishing Obamacare   -- thus also abolishing coverage for those with pre-existing conditions. Congressional Republicans also voted down a measure to elimiate short-term health plans that don't cover pre-existing conditions.

Further, Trump's own actions -- including reufsing to let Justice Department defend against the GOP attorneys general's lawsuit and the fact that one of the things he ran on was abolishing Obamacare -- show he's not really serious about preserving pre-existing condition coverage.

In other words, Trump is lying. And Bannister won't tell you he's lying.

When it comes to publishing lies and bogus claims, Bannister is having a very bad month. Poor guy.
