After omitting Susan B. Anthony from her Sunday Morning segment on the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, CBS host Margaret Brennan was in a fighting mood later on Face the Nation. Between smearing Republicans as being totally fine with 170,000 COVID deaths and assailing disgraced former FBI Director James Comey on behalf of the Democratic Party, Brennan was positioning herself to be a staunch pugilist for the party.
Brennan’s first guest was Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and she wasted little time in trying to suggest that somehow the party sent Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Israel on some sort of taxpayer-funded campaign trip:
The AP is reporting that the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, will be addressing the forum from Israel, where he is on official business. This lineup, when you start hearing about cabinet members being involved – I mean, first of all, it's very unusual for a diplomat to get involved in domestic politics, but this starts to look like using taxpayer-funded, federal resources for a campaign. Will taxpayers be reimbursed?
And despite the fact the Biden campaign had supporters gather outside the Democratic National Convention on the final day, Brennan was fuming over reports that the GOP would have some people at their convention. “I heard you have something like 300 people gathering there for official business. How are you going to protect them all from COVID? This is a mass gathering,” she whined without asking for context.
