FAKE NEWS: CNN uses Yemeni activist Bushra Al-Fusail to set up Nancy Pelosi calling Trump ‘incompetent’
CNN’s Jake Tapper hosted a town hall meeting with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Tuesday evening, immediately following President Donald Trump’s announcement of Neil Gorsuch as his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court.
Pelosi’s reaction to Gorsuch was a parade of insults that admitted of no redeeming qualities beyond “hail fellow well met.” She called him “hostile to women’s reproductive rights … hostility toward children in school, children with autism … a very hostile appointment … well outside the mainstream of American legal thought
The most bizarre moment came when a Yemeni refugee named Bushra Al-Fusail couldn’t get through her question, struggling to pronounce the words and just set up the House leader to call President Trump “incompetent,” sounding like he was to blame for the crisis in Yemen.
“Your family is suffering because our president is reckless and his administration is incompetent,” she told the Yemeni woman who said her mother could no longer come to the U.S. under the measure.
“The president has made us less safe with what he has done,” Pelosi added. “This isn’t the right thing to do, but it is red meat to some of the people he wants to continue to support him.”
“They don’t want to call it a ban even though they called it a ban. But that’s what it is. The Statue of Liberty is in tears over what they have done,” she said.

Critics, like Rush Limbaugh, were quick to call this “fake news,” borrowing a page from President’s Trump playbook, claiming the question was staged.
The woman is no random selection, but a self-described activist against the war in Yemen. Her twitter page is full of attacks on the Saudis, the Obama administration and now Trump for the operation in Yemen.
In a post by Alternet: “I want people to protest your governments that are supporting this war…Kids are being killed, and I blame everyone. Remember this story. And let Yemeni women know you support them, that they are not alone.”
She may be a wonderful lady, with a wonderful cause and message, but she NOT some Yemeni refugee just randomly picked and likely DID NOT write that question to Pelosi.
