On Friday, conservative Niger Innis struggled to defend President Donald Trump's relationship with North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un during an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo.


Innis was at a lost for words over Trump embracing Jong Un after the death of American Otto Warmbier.

"No matter your shade of red, for the president to say what he said, it being untrue is the least of it and nobody said a thing about him. How do you explain that other than straight practicality and fear?" Cuomo asked.

"I believe that Otto Warmbier is a horrible tragedy. It's awful. It's horrific," Innis said.

Innis said that Jong Un committed the crime, even though Trump has failed to hold him accountable.

"That's not what the president said," Cuomo responded.

Innis then failed to answer the question, and could not defend Trump. He got choked up over his words and said that "Trump and Jong Un had a private conversation," therefore we don't know the entire story.

"You're struggling," Cuomo said. "You're struggling with this. I understand why. He gave a despot a break for the third time. That's not what we're about. That's not what conservative ideology is about."
