Larry King Speaks Out on His Trump Interview That Aired on Russia Today

Former CNN host Larry King called into his old network tonight to address the hubbub over his controversial interview yesterday with Donald Trump.

The primary distributor of King’s show Politicking is Russia Today, a Kremlin-funded news outlet, and during the interview Trump told King he doesn’t think Russia was behind the DNC hack.

King insisted to Erin Burnett tonight that he has “never been told what to ask or not to ask” by Russia and he has never had anything critical of Russia and Putin edited out of his show.

As for the interview itself, Team Trump claims that they thought it was an interview for King’s podcast and not his show on RT. King didn’t exactly find that very believable.

He also said that Trump’s team apologized to him after the interview abruptly ended.
