Rick Santorum Takes on CNN’s Kate Bolduan in Heated Argument Over ‘Racist Republicans’

Former Senator Rick Santorum and CNN’s Kate Bolduan got into a heated argument on Thursday morning’s edition of “At This Hour” regarding President Donald Trump’s new campaign ad that depicts Central American migrants invading the United States to commit violent crimes.

It all started when Bolduan pressed Santorum on whether or not he supports the new Trump ad.

“That campaign video that the president put out is something we haven’t seen in decades, in the tone, the tenor, just the racist overtones of it all,” Bolduan said. “Are you supportive of that?”

“Quit doing this, Kate!” Santorum fired back. “This happens on this network just way too much. That anybody that disagrees on a public policy issue is a racist! And you can be against illegal border crossings, and protecting our border, and not be a racist.”

“Come on! You and I have known each other for a long time,” Bolduan answered. “Don’t paint me with broad brush strokes like that!”

“Every time there’s a policy discussion, I’m not calling Republicans racist! That’s not what I’m saying at all!”

This wasn’t the only CNN spat of the week either.

Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett called CNN anchor Don Lemon “a racist, hypocrite and idiot all rolled up into one” after Lemon stated that “the biggest terror threat in this country is white men.”

“CNN’s Don Lemon has now removed all doubt that he is a racist, hypocrite and idiot all rolled into one. Quite the accomplishment,” said Jarrett on Twitter.


"We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them," said Lemon said to fellow CNN anchor Chris Cuomo on Tuesday evening.
