CNN’s Erin Burnett Slams GOP Senators for ‘Pathetic’ Statement on Trump ‘Sh*thole’ Remarks

During a heated panel segment on CNN tonight, Erin Burnett called out “pretty pathetic” statements from two Republican senators hedging on “shithole”-gate.

Pastor Mark Burns pointed to a statement from Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue saying they “do not recall the President saying these comments specifically”:

Burnett said, “That’s pretty pathetic, you either recall or you don’t… That’s just BS.”

Burns also clashed with April Ryan, who tried to ask the President today if he’s a racist. They got into a biblical back-and-forth about the morality of helping others, and at one point Ryan told him, “I’ve got something better for you! Love thy neighbor as thyself!”

Burns argued that Trump’s focus is on America first and said, “You’re trying to get people fish. President Trump is trying to teach you how to fish.”
