I hope CNN is happy over this. Florine Gruen Goldfarb who is 76 years-old and a Trump supporter, never dreamed her activism for him in the 2016 election would get her ambushed by CNN. But it did… she was easy prey for them. They have harassed her, subjected her to infamy and ridicule. They have in essence, ruined the woman’s life and they did it without a second thought. Enter CNN correspondent Drew Griffin who tracked this woman down outside her home earlier this week and accused her on TV of unwittingly promoting a Russian-coordinated event during the 2016 election. Now she’s receiving threats on social media and she lays the blame at the news network’s feet. Many of these are death threats and go far beyond just harassment.
CNN put Goldfarb’s full name on their video and then tweeted it out to their 40 million followers. They also revealed her house number for much of the video. And why did they go after her? Because she unknowingly organized a pro-Trump event on Facebook that was influenced by the Russians, who are accused of meddling in the election. There’s no way she could have known who they were. She’s not a professional commie hunter and they were very convincing. The woman may have fallen for a ruse, but she’s an innocent in all this and does not deserve to be lynched by CNN and the left like this.
Fox News reached out to Goldfarb, who lives in Pembroke, Florida, via Facebook Messenger. She didn’t want to do a phone or live interview, because she just wants this all to go away. I don’t blame her in the least. She says she’s been bombarded since Griffin showed up at her door. “My phone is ringing off the hook and I can’t keep up with the emails and Facebook messages. I am being trashed by anti-Trump trolls on Facebook. This would have never happened if Fake News CNN had not caught me at home and ambushed me trying to coerce me into giving them the answers they were looking for,” Goldfarb told Fox News via the messaging app. “CNN is doing a great job exposing themselves as Fake News.” Gotta admire the lady’s spunk.

Goldfarb was labeled “public enemy number one,” a “traitor,” “miserable racist trash” and a treasonous hillbilly.” One Facebook user said she “should be arrested and tried for treason” in a series of messages arising in the wake of the CNN segment. Nice. So what’s next? Torches and pitchforks? Outspoken liberal actor Jon Cryer, co-star of “Two and a Half Men,” tweeted out CNN’s video of the entrapment and said, “We are dealing with a cult.” One user responded that Goldfarb should “move” and ought to be embarrassed to show her face in town. Yet another user called her a “complete moron” and one person responded that “there’s no witness protection program for the willfully ignorant.” These people are sick and totally unhinged.
CNN covered and promoted the anti-Trump rally themselves. Why isn’t the left going after them this way? This is the rally that was allegedly coordinated by Russian trolls fingered by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Back on Nov. 12, 2016, CNN gave “enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally that day, with live reports every hour,” according to the Media Research Center. “They should do an ambush of their own producers,” Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld recently said on “The Five.” Exactly my point.
But that’s not what happened. Griffin stalked Goldfarb and confronted her on her own front lawn demanding to know if she’d been part of a coverup. “The Russians? I don’t care if they were involved or not,” she said. But like a dog with a bone, Griffin kept at her. He asked her if she was aware of the Russian influence, but Goldfarb quickly shot down his question. “They weren’t involved with us. Just make sure you report it correctly,” she said. Being fake news, of course CNN didn’t. Griffin then slyly asked her if she was involved in “Being Patriotic,” which is apparently the name of a Russian troll group. But Goldfarb responded that she was “very patriotic.” Nice trap you asshat. For shame.
This guy didn’t let up either. Griffin kept hitting this elderly woman with questions, accusing her of complying with Russian trolls. She eventually walked away, which is what she should have done to begin with. Goldfarb called the allegations “bulls—t” on her way inside the house. And they are, but like sharks to blood in the water, the media is going for innocent Trump supporters to take the spotlight off themselves. CNN’s verified Twitter account shared the video with the caption: “A Florida woman who ran a Trump supporters page that unwittingly promoted a Russian-coordinated event on Facebook says she doesn’t believe that she was influenced by Kremlin-linked trolls.”
This gave leftist trolls a green light to attack the woman and they certainly did. She was not hard to find. The woman is part of numerous conservative pro-Trump groups and there’s nothing wrong with that at all. Goldfarb said she has received messages from fellow Trump supporters across the globe who saw the CNN segment. “I greatly appreciate their support,” Goldfard wrote to Fox News.
“The Five” co-host Jesse Watters established himself as a cable news star conducting man-on-the-street segments and ambush interviews. “I’ve done this dozens and dozens of times and ambushed people. I’ve never done it to a regular person outside of their house,” Watters said. “The guy can go to someone’s house with a camera and a mic, that’s fine. … His tone was so wrong and accusatory.” Hell, it was predatory. Co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle added that Goldfarb would have “quite a lawsuit if anything happens to her” as a result of the CNN report. Yep, if she survives the assault.
Goldfard shared one of the threatening messages she has received with Fox News. She received it on Friday at 9:10 am EST from a stranger on Facebook. “Hey Comrade, I saw you being interviewed and denying helping Russians. You and all the Russian allies should go to prison once we hang Trump for treason. Looking forward to impeaching your treasonous pos fake President, and coming after his enablers like you,” the message said. That’s rich, because the left is full of communists and useful idiots, so calling anyone ‘comrade’ is highly hypocritical. This was just threatening and abusive.
While Goldfarb is concerned for her safety, she doesn’t want anyone feeling sorry for her because of her age. “I may be 76 going on 77 but I am not an old lady. I have been active in politics for 10 years. Worked on many campaigns. In between my hobby is dancing, such as line dancing, couple dancing such as cha-cha, west and East Coast swing dances,” Goldfarb said. Regardless, CNN should be so very proud of themselves for going after this woman like this. They’ve ruined her life over a nothing story while absolving themselves of their own complicity with Russia. This is CNN.
