Watch Sally Kohn’s priceless facial expressions as Scottie Nell Hughes rants Clinton has no plan



Finding it impossible to fact check Donald Trump surrogates, some left-leaning CNN contributors have let their facial expressions do the talking.

During what has been a long and unusual election season, CNN has hosted a revolving door of fact-challenged Trump supporters. And Tuesday was no different, with Scottie Nell Hughes claiming that the country had better things to talk about than how women were treated.


Hughes slammed Clinton for responding to a 15-year-old girl who was concerned about how Donald Trump was impacting how women viewed their own bodies.

“This just shows that Hillary Clinton does not want to talk about policy,” Hughes opined. “She just released this ad, not talking about her policies on how she’s going to help these women, rather going negative against Mr. Trump has said in the past and taking them out of context.”

Although Kohn was quiet throughout the Trump surrogate’s rant, her facial expressions told the viewers all they needed to know.
