‘Mass shootings, senator!’: CNN host rips Rick Santorum for not caring about stopping massacres

Published

on

Former Sen. Rick Santorum was shut down on CNN on Tuesday while arguing against gun control following the latest mass shooting massacres in America.

First, Santorum praised Senat Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for refusing to allow any votes on gun control bills that have passed the House of Representatives.

“Look, Mitch McConnell is doing what every good leader does. He listenings to his caucus and determines what they want,” Santorum argued.

“USA Today just released a poll, 67 percent of Americans want Senate bills passed with background checks that the House passed,” CNN’s Erin Burnett said. “That includes a majority of Republicans.

“Look, I don’t think those polls are worth too much,” Santorum replied.

“When the Second Amendment goes in front of the Supreme Court and they say anyone with a common gun should be allowed, the one thing mass shootings have in common, the common gun are the assault weapons,” Burnett argued.

“Actually, very, very — very, very few crimes occur in this country with assault weapons and rifles,” Santorum replied.

“Mass shootings, senator. Mass shootings!” Burnett replied.

“Again, very, very few crimes,” Santorum began.

“Mass shootings!” Burnett interrupted.

“Nobody wants mass shootings and this is the gun used for that,” Burnett concluded.

During the interview, Camerota played Lewandowski a clip of himself telling the House Judiciary Committee that he is under no obligation to be honest when he appears on cable news shows.

Lewandowski responded to this by angrily ranting about former FBI officials James Comey and Andrew McCabe, but Camerota wouldn't let him off the hook.

"Corey, when do you lie?" she asked him. "Are you lying now, for instance?"

‘Train-wreck of a witness’: Analysts nail ‘obstructive’ Corey Lewandowski for proving the Democrats’ case

Published

on

Political commentator Catherine Rampell disagreed with New York Times columnist Frank Bruni that the Democrats faltered during the hearing with Corey Lewandowski Tuesday. Former state and federal prosecutor Elie Honig called Lewandowski a "train-wreck of a witness."

She explained that Democrats had an extremely low bar: they had to prove Trump obstructed justice and that Corey Lewandowski gave one of the examples of such obstructions. In that sense, Rampell said they accomplished their goals.

"I don’t think this was a great day for Corey Lewandowski," she began. "This is a guy who went on TV and announced to the world -- apparently at the same time he is also trying to fundraise for Senate -- that he lies most of the time. Except when he's under oath."
