CNN anchor Erin Burnett said the Iranians chanting “Death to America” are really friendly people.
“I was in Tehran when they were chanting ‘death to America’ once,” Burnett said on-air. “I was at a rally, the people couldn’t have been more friendly to me personally as an American. It sort of felt like a thing and a trope as opposed to anything that was actually seriously meant and considered. I understand your point but my experience was different.”
Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) was dumbfounded at the CNN anchor’s ignorance. She seems to believe the protesters are the kind of people you would invite over to your house for a backyard cookout.
“Erin, your entire life, Iran – pretty much your entire life, just by a few years, has chanted death to America and they have taken actions against Americans and American interests and in ways that are lethal killings of Americans, given weaponry to people who do kill Americans,” Turner said.
At best Ms. Burnett is sympathetic to a bunch of dangerous terrorists who want to destroy our nation. At worst — she may be one of them.
