GOP Rep. Taylor Goes to Hilarious Lengths to Duck Cuomo Question on Background Checks

It’s been a busy morning over at CNN.

In yet another notable New Day segment, Chris Cuomo duked it out with Rep. Scott Taylor (R-VA) over gun control. Specifically, Cuomo pressed Taylor on the issue of universal background checks. Taylor opposes them. Cuomo wanted to know why.

The New Day anchor, at this point, was exasperated.

“I don’t support anything except you answering my question, my friend.”

Despite Cuomo’s grilling, the answer never came.
