After Trump cried foul at the Colorado Supreme Court's ruling disqualifying him from the ballot, Abby Phillip ran through all the times he called for others to be disqualified.

After former President Donald Trump cried foul following a ruling by the Colorado Supreme Court disqualifying Trump from the state's presidential ballot, CNN anchor Abby Phillip ran through all the past times he called for others to be disqualified to highlight his hypocrisy.

Phillip said Trump "is usually the head cheerleader for Team Disqualification," noting that he "did it as a birther with the bogus argument that Barack Obama wasn’t eligible for the presidency" and "did it with Ted Cruz in 2016, calling on Iowa to give him the boot.”


Phillip also showed footage of Trump saying that former Ohio Republican Governor John Kasich—a 2016 primary rival—should "not be allowed to continue" as well as former New York Democratic Representative Anthony Weiner, whom he said "should never be allowed to run" after it was revealed he sent sexually suggestive photos of himself to different women.

Most notably, Phillip pointed out that Trump had repeatedly attacked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whom he insisted "should not be allowed to run because of her emails," a reference to her use of a personal server during her tenure. She presented multiple video examples of Trump doing just that.

Additionally, Trump has called for the GOP primaries to be "canceled because he is so far ahead" in the polls, Phillip said, noting that Trump has voiced multiple problems with constitutional amendments such as the first, which he wants to weaponize against the free press. She concluded that several constitutional amendments have played a role in his "many, many court cases," demonstrating how Trump's choice of words threatens the democratic experiment.

You can hear what Phillip said in the video below.

Many concurred with Phillip's assessment.



Colorado's Supreme Court issued its ruling on the grounds Trump violated Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which says former officeholders cannot run again if they’ve engaged in insurrection against the United States, an unprecedented and historic decision that takes into account Trump's actions on January 6, 2021, the day a mob of his supporters attacked the U.S. Capitol on the false premise the 2020 election had been stolen.

The court upheld Trump's involvement in inciting the Capitol riot, claiming he fueled his supporters with baseless election fraud allegations, branding it an act of insurrection. Colorado’s decision made history, marking the first instance where a state barred him due to his role in the attack.

Section 3 of the 14th Amendment prohibits anyone who engaged in insurrection after pledging to support the Constitution while in federal office from seeking office. Colorado's Supreme Court concluded that this clause encompasses the office of the presidency.

The court has temporarily suspended its ruling until January 4th, enabling Trump to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Trump’s team swiftly expressed their intentions to do so.

Twisters, directed by Lee Isaac Chung, is a standalone sequel to 1996's Twister that's received generally positive reviews from critics since its release this past weekend. The movie made $80.5 million over its opening weekend—just shy of what Harris raised in the immediate aftermath since President Joe Biden dropped out of the race and endorsed her to be his successor.
