I spent a substantial part of my youth with John Sununu as governor of New Hampshire. I would run into him at various times, and he even introduced me to then-Vice President George H.W. Bush before he went off to become a whipping post at the White House. I always thought Sununu was a hoot for speaking very plainly and without pretense.
Watch how he eviscerated CNN’s Alisyn Camerota about the Trump-Russia ongoing investigation. This is absolute classic Sununu.
CAMEROTA: I’m trying to gauge your comfort level with all of this
SUNUNU: My comfort level? The only discomfort I have is with folks in the media trying to create a veniality without having the courage to specifically tell me what the veniality that I should be concerned about is. I don’t have…I have not identified a veniality. Have you?
CAMEROTA: Well. You should be concerned if there was collusion. And that’s what Congress….
SUNUNU: I don’t see any evidence of collusion. Do you?
SUNUNU: Ok, then that should end your reporting right there. You should put an exclamation point after your “no.”
“Veniality.” Nobody uses that word. In other words, what sin has Trump or his people committed? If there’s no evidence of collusion, the “version” the anti-Trump press puts forth is we should keep looking until we find the evidence. Because the question-begging press is convinced there must be evidence.
But the press laughably denies they are partisan.
SUNUNU: Can I ask a question? If Mueller comes out and says that my version is correct and yours isn’t, how much crow are you going to eat?
CAMEROTA: Governor, I don’t have a version of events.
SUNUNU: Of course you do. The whole half-hour I listened to is a version.
Maybe John Sununu should come out of retirement and take over Mike Dubke’s job at the White House. Someone’s got to force-feed a six-course meal of crow to the press (who still haven’t eaten theirs for being so cosmically wrong about Trump’s election).
