Rick Santorum Crashes And Burns On CNN After Pushing ‘Insane’ Defense Of Trump

Former Republican Senator and three-times failed presidential candidate Rick Santorum got raked over the coals on CNN over his latest defense of President Donald Trump following Tuesday’s impeachment inquiry hearings.

Santorum argued that the best course of action at this point is for people to ignore the words coming from Trump, implying that the president cannot be taken seriously when he speaks.

“Wait, this argument is insane,” Carrie Cordero said. “You cannot argue that the president of the United States’ words do not matter or that he’s just sort of spouting off or he has his own views.”

“The reality is we ignore 80 to 90% of what the president says,” Santorum argued. “Look at the tweets, we ignore most of those things he tweets and say ‘it’s Trump being Trump.’”

Then CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin flattened Santorum.

“So your position is he shouldn’t be impeached because he’s surrounded by people who are less corrupt and crazy than he is,” Toobin summarized.

“He’s not corrupt and crazy,” Santorum argued.
