After listening to this gentleman on several talk shows, it became clear to me that he is no better prepared to talk about the political issues than any other fast over talking representative of the trump administration. His arguments fall in the same category as “alternate facts” as coined by Kellyanne Conwoman. It is interesting that so many of Trumps spokespeople all talk fast and over talk the people they are being interviewed by or having a discussion(?) with. Apparently it is better to talk over and talk faster than the interviewer or anyone else involved in the discussion that tell the whole truth. While no politician is completely honest, the Trump spokes people seem to relish promoting the half truths and lies with aplomb and gusto ( I might add with gusto and a straight face). The Congressional backers of Trump’s repeal and replace initiative are as bad if not worse and will be in office possibly after Trump leaves by election loss or impeachment. These are the people to watch and not so much the talking heads on Faux news as the are paid to lie and cause controversy to gain ratings. Disingenuous actions and words do amount to the truth. MA

Paris Dennard

Paris Dennard (born 1982 in Phoenix, Arizona) is an American political adviser, political strategist and speaker. He often appears as a conservative expert and commentator in newsreels and discussion rounds at CNN and  NPR. He worked for the White House in 2008[1] as Director of Black Outreach for President George W. Bush. In 2016 he became communications director for the HBCU Thurgood Marshall College Fund.[2] In 2017 he is a commentator for CNN and analyst for NPR.[3]

Dennard attended the Brophy College Preparatory, a Jesuit boys high school, in his hometown until 2000, where he was the chairman of the school rector. He then studied Public Relations and Political Science through the Richard Eamer Scholars Program at the conservative Christian private Pepperdine University in Malibu. He spent a semester abroad in London and completed a bachelor’s degree in both subjects.
During his studies, he was President of the Student Government Association.
Career in politics[edit]
He was already active in his youth as a conservative junior politician. For instance, he served as the chairman of the Arizona Teenage Republicans , the new generation of the Republican Party, and appeared in the summer of 2000 as the latest speaker at the Republican National Convention in Philadelphia.
Under US President George W. Bush Dennard worked between 2005 and 2009 in the White House . During this time, he was involved in the Office of Legislative Affairs, the Office of Political Affairs and the Office of Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs. In the latter, he served as White House Director of Black Outreach and was responsible for maintaining government contact with the African American population. In addition, he coordinated the meetings and travels of the President, First Lady Laura Bush, and the House of Representatives, and was responsible for the planning of various events in the White House.
After his retirement from the White House, Dennard worked as an Associate Director for Coalitions at the Republican National Committee from 2009 to 2011 . Subsequently, he served as Director of Public Affairs in a law firm in South Carolina operates  as well as in 2014 when as director of events in Washington, D.C. resident and the Arizona State University cooperating think tank McCain Institute for International Leadership. In 2012 or 2013, he and PD Consulting Group established his own consulting office for strategic communication, political management, image and brand development and media training. In July 2015, he was appointed Legislative Director of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, which focuses on public HBCUs . Since September 2016, Dennard has been acting as Director of Strategic Communications.
In the presidential election campaign of 2016, Dennard expressed his support for the Republican candidate Donald Trump, and often defended his positions and comments in the media. He gained prominence in early February 2017, when the now elected and sworn US president Trump in a speech about Black History Month praised Dennard’s work as a pundit at CNN:
“And Paris has done an amazing job in a very hostile CNN community. He’s all by himself. You’ll have seven people, and Paris. And I’ll take Paris over the seven. But I do not watch CNN, so I do not get to see you as much as I used to. I do not like watching fake news.”
“And Paris has done a great job in a very hostile [because liberal-democratic] CNN environment. He is entirely alone. You have seven people [liberal members] and Paris. And I prefer Paris to these seven. But I do not see CNN, so I do not see you [personal address to Dennard] as often as I used to. I do not like watching Fake News.”
