A CNN panel quickly derailed Saturday evening when a former spokesperson for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) castigated a former Republican congressman who suggested Americans “move past” the fact that President Donald Trump doesn’t address the issue of white supremacy.
Video of the segment begins with Sweet lecturing Kingston about the importance of not “ignoring” the root causes behind Saturday’s protests and why it is imperative for Trump to specifically denounce white supremacism and not blame Saturday’s protests on “many sides,” like he did during a press conference.
Cabrera noted that Trump could issue another statement condemning white supremacism, but has failed to do so and actually doubled down on the “many sides” comment.
Sanders, however, was still upset over Kingston’s suggestion that Americans should move past white supremacy and she let him know it.
I don’t want to hear anything else Jack Kingston has to say, specifically about moving past white supremacy,” Sanders said as Kingston tried to interrupt her and stop her from talking.
