“Is Trump the man for the Tea Party?” This is the question CNN’s Chris Cuomo posed to Mark Meckler on the New Day program.

Trump wants to make America great again. He’s a Washington DC “outsider.” He talks about the issues. He’s the “face of America’s discontent.” And he’s “harsh.” Exactly how CNN views the Tea Party. So why aren’t they endorsing him yet?

Mark Meckler explains why he and many other conservatives are enjoying the race without committing to a candidate yet. He shares some insights he’s gained from visiting over 20 of the United States this year.

Meckler and Cuomo also get into what our parents might call “a discussion” about the media’s portrayal of reality.
