CNN’s Santorum on Trump and White Supremacists: He Doesn’t Like Saying Bad Things About Supporters

It can’t be easy being the Conservative talking head since Donald Trump has been in office. You often see Meghan McCain blasted for saying nonsensical things and an effort to defend the president.

CNN often calls in former Pennsylvania senator to give the Republican spin on things. And the former presidential hopeful certainly had his work cut out for him after Trump’s disastrous Tuesday night debate performance. The former lawmaker claimed that Trump couldn’t condemn white supremacists because he doesn’t like saying bad things abut people who support him.

While recapping the debate, Gloria Borger said, I just think it’s such a low moment in American presidential history that you see an incumbent President of the United States bullying his opponent, behaving in a shameful way and declining to say how he felt about white supremacy. I mean, give me a break. And then declining — he was asked specifically, ‘Would you tell your supporters not to be violent after this election?’ And he declined to do that.”

Santorum then piped in, “Yeah, I would say the Democrats owe a lot to Chris Wallace. Because Chris Wallace asked those two questions, not Joe Biden. It was Chris Wallace who asked those two questions. And he asked them for a reason. Because he asked two questions where he was asking the president to do something that he knows the president doesn’t like to do…Which is, say something bad about people who support him.”

David Axelrod asked, “The white supremacists?” Santorum replied, “yeah, the white supremacists.”
