Friday morning’s coverage of former President Trump’s most recent indictment for the election charges included a segment on CNN News Central where anchor Kate Bolduan discussed former Vice President Mike Pence’s [R-IN] involvement and opinions on the case with his former chief of staff, Marc Short. During this interview, Bolduan asked Short about recent growing distrust in the American election system, to which he responded (to her dismay) by attributing this distrust to both Republican and Democrat questioning of elections when the other side won.

Bolduan began on this subject by mentioning a recent CNN poll revealing that, as of July, almost 70 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents thought that “Biden did not legitimately win enough votes to win the presidency.” She asked Short, “whose fault was that?” as though public opinion and observation was something that someone could be guilty of.
