The Hill reports:
CNN counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd broke down in tears on Wednesday while discussing the Florida school shooting live on CNN.
“I have ten nieces and nephews,” Mudd said, his voice breaking. “We’re talking about bump stocks, we’re talking about legislation. A child of god is dead. Can we not acknowledge in this country that we cannot accept this?”
“I can’t do it Wolff,” he said to CNN’s Wolff Blitzer. “I’m sorry, I can’t do it.” Blitzer then ended the interview to cut to a different analyst.
