CNN’s Sally Kohn was not happy when a conservative panelist brought up Bill Clinton’s sex scandals during a segment on Roy Moore’s alleged sexual misconduct.
Kohn, appearing on “CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin,” said, “the Republican Party already shot itself in the foot by not distancing themselves from Donald Trump when 11 women made similar, adult women at least made allegations against him and he himself bragged about sexually assaulting women,”
Jack Kingston, former Trump campaign advisor, said, “Sally, I wasn’t going to bring up William Jefferson Clinton, but I never heard…”
Kohn responded, “Oh, I had a feeling you were.”
Kingston said, “Well no, I wasn’t going to go there. I was actually going to stay with Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby, but since you brought it up, where were the Democrats denouncing him…”
“Jack, the difference between Bill Clinton and Donald Trump is Bill Clinton was impeached. So we aired that one as a public. And also, he’s not currently the President.”
“He was impeached for perjury,” he responded.
Kohn said, “Listen this is fine. I’m fine watching this Roy Moore thing go down. Because with condolences to the poor statesman of course, the women who he has abused and made suffer–we are watching the destruction of the Republican Party before our very eyes. They are doing themselves systemic damage for generations. And I’m going to be honest, I’m here for it.”
“Don’t over claim. Let me give you congratulations for Tuesday, was a great day. But I also want to point out year-to-date our fundraising of 104 million at the RNC, and I think you are around the 40 million range.”
“Because you keep giving rich people tax breaks,” Kohn said.
“Well, great rhetoric, but not true,” Kingston said.
