Raw Story reports:
In a highly contentious interview on CNN Sunday morning, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) repeatedly refused to condemn Kyle Rittenhouse, the Donald Trump fan accused of shooting and killing two Black Lives Matter protestors early this week.
Speaking with “State of the Union” host Dana Bash, Johnson repeatedly spoke over her while manically spouting out prepared comments and ignoring her questions that led the CNN host to finally cut him off.
BASH: “The 17-year-old accused of committing two murders was a Trump supporter. Do you condemn that?”
JOHNSON: “It is a tragedy.”
BASH: “Do you condemn it?
JOHNSON: It’s a tragedy.”
BASH: “It is a tragedy, but do you condemn it?”
JOHNSON: “The entire situation is a tragedy.”
