I think this is a new low. A CNN panelist gets so angry that he tries to kick a Black pro-Trump contributor off the show.
"We're done. Get out!"
Should I play the race card? Naaaaa... Besides, Phil Mudd just played himself and the world gets another hard look at Trump Derangement Syndrome. This is CNN!
The exchange started when Paris Dannard told the truth about the power of security clearances. He said: “A lot of these people that have these security clearances, and this is the secret in swampy Washington, D.C., they have them and they keep them because it’s profitable for them after they leave government,” Dennard stated. “Because if you have a security clearance, especially high level security clearances, your contracts and your consulting gig pay you a lot more money because of the access that you have.”
Mudd responded, “When I am requested to sit on an advisory board, let me ask you one question, how much do you think I’m paid to do that at the request of the U.S. Government? Give me one answer, and you’ve got ten seconds? How much?”
And here we go!
