Wow, I knew CNN was part of the liberal cult but it’s still shocking when they show their true colors. Read on; are you shocked as well?
Dr Drew Pinksy was allegedly told by CNN to take back his comments about Hillary Clinton’s health.
Days later HLN is alleged to have cut him loose when he refused.
Pinsky’s show Dr Drew On Call on HLN, which is the sister network of CNN, will go off air on September 22.
He allegedly told a friend that Clinton supporters are so rampant in their distaste for him he said he ‘just want them to go away’, a source told Page Six.
The cancellation of the show came just eight days after Pinsky discussed Clinton’s health on a radio show saying he was ‘gravely concerned not just about her health, but her health care’.
‘CNN is so supportive of Clinton, network honchos acted like the Mafia when confronting Drew. First, they demanded he retract his comments, but he wouldn’t,’ an unnamed source told Page Six.
The source said Pinsky has since received nasty phone calls and emails.
‘It was downright scary and creepy,’ the source said.
However, a spokeswoman for Pinsky contradicted the anonymous source saying the cancellation had been decided weeks earlier as HLN revamps the network.
This includes dropping Pinsky and Nancy Grace’s show
‘I know the timing is suspicious, and I know it’s hard to believe, but the two things had nothing to do with each other,’ Pinsky’s rep Valerie Allen told Page Six.
The show will go off air a little over five years after it first premiered on the network.
One of the disparaging statements Pinsky made was that Clinton was suffering from brain damage.
Pinsky, 57, also stated that he and another physician were ‘gravely concerned’ about the ‘health’ and ‘health care’ of Clinton.
These conclusions were not reached after an extensive review of Clinton’s medical records or following a conversation with an individual who has treated the Democratic nominee for president, but rather after Pinsky read an eight-paragraph letter that was written by Clinton’s doctor of 15 years.
That letter, which was publicly released last July, states that Clinton is ‘in excellent physical condition and fit to serve as President of the United States.’
Pinsky’s comments about brain damage came from a line in the letter detailing the concussion suffered by Clinton in December 2012 when she fainted and hit her head while suffering from a stomach virus.
The letter mentions that after the incident, Clinton seemed to benefit from wearing Fresnel prism glasses, which she was seen in a month after her fall while testifying before the Benghazi committee in Congress.
‘When she hit her head, she had to wear these prism glasses when she came out,’ said Pinsky.
‘That is brain damage, and it’s affecting her balance. Now clearly, it hasn’t affected her cognition, but tell us a little more about that. That’s profound.’
Pinsky previously made mention of Clinton having an issue brought on by a ‘brain injury’ this past January.
He claimed that a ‘strong source’ from the website Breitbart had informed him that Clinton was late returning to the stage at the Democratic debate because of an incident related to this past injury.
It was ultimately revealed that Clinton had in fact been using the restroom, and Pinsky was forced to apologize on-air, closing out his statement by saying: ‘I regret the error and will make sure, in the future, to apply the rigorous editorial standards we have in place here. I apologize to our viewers and Secretary Clinton for falling short tonight.’
Donald Trump and a handful of his most fervent supporters, among them the former mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani and Fox News host Sean Hannity, have also called into question the mental and physical health of Clinton in the past few weeks as a way of implying she is possibly unfit to serve as president.
Trump’s attacks seemed to amp up around the same time he brought Steve Bannon onto his campaign team, who is the executive chairman of Breitbart, the website that made the January claim about Clinton’s brain injury that Pinsky picked up and reported.
