Bash Refuses to Take Yes for an Answer on 2020 Election Legitimacy

News & Politics

The leftist media is never happy. If a Republican candidate or elected official claims the 2020 election was stolen, they throw a tantrum, if a Republican admits President Joe Biden was legitimately elected and he is the current President, they continue asking the question until the exact party approved phrase is uttered. This was the case on Sunday morning’s State of the Union on CNN, where co-anchor Dana Bash asked Washington state Republican Senatorial nominee Tiffany Smiley three times whether Joe Biden won the 2020 election. Each time she said yes, but a simple yes apparently wasn’t good enough for Bash.   

“Let’s just drill down on this question,” Bash prefaced before asking “simple yes or no, do you believe that Joe Biden won the 2020 election fair and square?” 

Smiley responded “Yes, he’s our President. Yes,” before going on to point out how “in 2016 Hillary Clinton had concerns, Stacey Abrams had concerns” about their elections. “This is an issue on both sides of the aisle. This isn’t a Democrat or Republican issue,” Smiley added.

Not happy with the way Smiley answered the question, Bash demanded she answer it again in a way that Bash’s Democrat party approves of: “you said that President Biden is our President. Was he fairly elected, legitimately elected?”

“Yes, Joe Biden is our President,” Smiley answered and went on to say she’s focused on the voters in her state and not debating the 2020 election. 

Bash angrily snapped back that “you didn’t say that he was legitimately elected. I just want to give you one more chance to say that or if you are comfortable with your answer, we’ll move on.” 

Smiley once again repeated the same answer that she Bash gave twice: “Yes, I think I made it clear. He is our President and, again, I am focused on the voters of Washington state.” 

Bash never said what the correct answer to her question was, but apparently saying yes, Biden is our President, isn’t the Democrat Party approved answer despite what you might have believed.

CNN’s State of the Union

DANA BASH: Let’s just drill down on this question. Simple yes or no, do you believe that Joe Biden won the 2020 election fair and square?

TIFFANY SMILEY: Yes, he’s our President. Yes. And to be clear, you know, I think in 2016 Hillary Clinton had concerns, Stacey Abrams had concerns. This is an issue on both sides of the aisle. This isn’t a Democrat or Republican issue. We need to protect the integrity of our elections. They need to be easy to cheat — hard to cheat and easy to vote. That is very clear—

BASH: I’ll ask you about that in a second—

BASH: You said that President Biden is our President. Was he fairly elected, legitimately elected? 

SMILEY: Yes, Joe Biden is our President. Look, my campaign has been so successful because from day one I am focused on the endorsement of the voters of Washington state and delivering results. I care about the people of Washington state. That’s who I’m fighting for. Unfortunately, Patty Murray fights for Washington, D.C. Her and Joe Biden have a combined 80 years in government and we’re just not any better off in Washington state because of that. 

BASH: Okay. You didn’t say that he was legitimately elected. I just want to give you one more chance to say that or if you are comfortable with your answer, we’ll move on. 

SMILEY: Yes, I think I made it clear. He is our President and, again, I am focused on the voters of Washington state. I’m focused on the future and what I can deliver. We have a crisis here in Washington state and I am here to turn crisis into hope.
