A CNN reporter said during a live broadcast on Tuesday that President Joe Biden has instructed his campaign to be aggressive in highlighting the “crazy s*** that Trump says in public” as the race for the White House heats up.

Reporter MJ Lee — who was behind the network’s report in 2018 that claimed that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) told Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) that a woman couldn’t win the presidency — made the remarks after suggesting at the start of this week that House Republicans had the blood of deceased Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny on their hands.

“President Biden himself personally instructed some of his top campaign aides to be even more aggressive in highlighting some of President Trump’s more inflammatory and wild comments,” she said. “We’re told that the thrust of the president’s direction was to significantly ramp up the campaign’s efforts to highlight the ‘crazy s*** that Trump says in public.'”

“You know, we’ve been seeing, of course, for a while, the Biden campaign trying to highlight what they see as the black-and-white contrast between President Biden and former President Trump on everything, including their temperament, their worldviews, their policies, and as the Biden campaign is making this pivot to a general election, this reporting seems to show that President Biden himself believes that it is incredibly important to make sure that they are really leaning into painting the former president as being unhinged and unfit for office,” she continued.

“Now when we reached out to the Biden campaign for comment for this story, the Biden campaign’s rapid response director said in part that Donald Trump is the polar opposite of everything that President Biden stands for and that this stark contrast is one that they’re going to continue to highlight,” she concluded. “One thing that I do think — it’s worth pointing out that the Biden campaign has been concerned about for a while is this idea that so many voters seem to have forgotten about the first four years of the Trump presidency and what they see as having been sort of these unacceptable and outrageous moments from those first four years.”
