CNN Panel Plays ‘What If Obama Did This’ Game With Trump Porn Star Story: ‘He’d Be in Guantanamo’

CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Alisyn Camerota and Van Jones speculated on Thursday what things would’ve been like for Barack Obama if his presidency was a magnet for controversy like Donald Trump‘s is.

After New Day reviewed how political comedians are dealing with the ongoing Stormy Daniels scandal, Camerota asked Jones whether the “tawdry” matter is of actual significance.

Jones said the matter is important by virtue of the fact that people are actually debating the significance of a presidential candidate’s team paying hush money to cover up his adultery with a porn star just before an election.

From there, Camerota asked the recurring question: “Isn’t it fun to play the ‘what if Barack Obama did this’ game?”

Jones’ response: “I said many times, if Barack Obama had done just half of what Trump did last week, he would have been impeached, he would be in Guantanamo.”

Cuomo noted that Trump’s evangelical supporters have made it clear they are willing to overlook his moral failings in the past. When the panel moved on to Sarah Huckabee Sanders‘ proclamation that the president “already won” the Daniels VS Trump lawsuit, Jones said the press secretary was “tap dancing on marbles” with her political spinning, and “at some point you’re going to slip.”
