CNN host John Berman asked Republican Rep. Mike Turner of Ohio about President Donald Trump’s repeated attacks against the late Sen. John McCain.
However, Turner ignored the question, and went on an evidence-free rant about Hillary Clinton, who has not been in public office since 2013:
I think what’s come to light in most recent days is, of course, the use of the discredited dossier and it is being placed in McCain’s hands by Democratic Party operatives by Christopher Steele, who is being paid by Hillary Clinton…
Berman told Turner that his answer had nothing to do with his original question, but Turner ignored the question about Trump again:
I’m saying over the recent days the attempts to use John McCain to legitimize the discredited dossier for the purposes of initiating an investigation against the president has come to light in testimony!
Once again, Berman cut off Turner’s rant and asked his original question:
Congressman, again, none of this gets to my question. Does it justify, congressman, the president of the United States at a White House-funded event in Ohio, in your home state, talking about the funeral of a human being, let alone a war hero like John McCain who passed away in August?
Turner was too afraid to condemn the attacks by Trump, and instead said he was “saddened” that Trump talked about McCain that way Turner then continued his rant about the Steele dossier, which has been proven to be mostly true, so far.
