Any doubts that CNN has become the official party organ of the DNC grows dimmer day by day.
On Thursday, Alisyn Camerota was sucking up to Florida Democrat Ted Deutch in a way that, in a gentler era, would have earned an R rating. After tossing one softball after another to Deutch, she threw this zinger at Marco Rubio (the video is cued up to the clip for your convenience)
I’m glad you clarified all of that because obviously it is confusing one of your colleagues in the Senate Marco Rubio, who of course represents Florida and was there with you at our CNN Town Hall, he introduced a bill yesterday. It was about daylight saving time. He wants to make it year round do you think that helps gun violence?
This is just partisan chickensh**. On March 7, Senator Rubio, cosponsored the bipartisan Stop School Violence Act. This is a bill Ted Deutch opposed. In fact, Rubio has been very active as this timeline from HotAir colleague, Allahpundit, demonstrates:
