CNN Commentator Calls Republicans Racist And Sexist For Interrupting Kamala Harris

Below is a perfect example of why civilized political discourse is no longer possible in the United States.

Twice in the past two weeks, first with deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and then again yesterday with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the freshman Senator from California, Kamala Harris, chose to pursue an aggressive series of questions that many have interpreted simply as an effort to patronize, mock and/or embarrass witnesses before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

But the questions asked by Harris, are not the real issue. She has the right, and frankly the obligation, to ask tough and probing questions.

The issue is that after asking those tough/probing questions Harris seems to have forgotten that witnesses are supposed to be given an opportunity to respond. Moreover, when witnesses are not allowed to respond, it's the duty of the committee chair, who happens to be Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) in the case of the Senate Intelligence Committee, to maintain order and assure that "questioning" of a witness doesn't morph into "badgering" of a witness.

It's garbage like this that led to yesterday's attempted massacre in Alexandria. When will you people learn that CNN is nothing more than a radical leftwing propaganda machine. Nothing more. You people need to wake the hell up. This kind of BS just gives loony toons like that cat from MN licenses to go on rampages. Block CNN on your cable box and send Comcast a big NO!

typical Democrat. They ask a question or make a point and if they don't get the answer they want they attempt to dominate / bully the conversation using insinuations instead of facts. They always turn bullies and insinuations and talk over people to intimidate. She is rude and a disrespectful person.
