CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin Blows Up Kris Kobach’s Whole World On Live TV (VIDEO)
All hell broke loose when CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin called out Trump lapdog Kris Kobach on live TV for being a racist trying to stop poor and black people from voting.
On Wednesday night Kansas Republican gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach made an appearance on CNN. And it quickly turned into a disaster.
Kobach has been one of Trump’s biggest supporters. He ran Trump’s phony investigation into voter fraud. He has also been a big champion for voter suppression. And on Wednesday night he got called out for all of it on live TV.
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin didn’t pull any punches when he joined Kobach on a panel to discuss Trump’s latest lie about changing the Fourteenth Amendment with an executive order. Toobin told the truth about Kobach. And the Republican didn’t like it one bit.
Toobin flat out called Kobach a racist. And then he said, “Kris has devoted his career to stopping black people and poor people from voting. I mean that’s been your goal for decades.”
“That is an outrageous accusation!” Kobach responded.
“It’s completely true,” Toobin shot back.
“That’s an absolutely outrageous accusation. So if you like photo I.D., you’re trying to stop people of color from voting?,” Kobach asked.
“Absolutely,” Toobin replied.
“That is outrageous,” the Kansas attorney general complained.
“By the way, when this question is polled, the vast majority of African-Americans approve of photo I.D., so apparently they’re trying to do what you’re saying I’m trying to do. That is outrageous and a horrible accusation,” Kobach added.
“It is completely true… that’s why you had this phony voter suppression commission that was such a preposterous joke established by the president that it disbanded because it couldn’t prove your claim that voter fraud is a problem in this country. Your problem is that some people vote for Democrats and you want to stop that by establishing voting requirements,” Toobin said.
At that point the show’s host Anderson Cooper stepped in and said, “Let’s not go down this lane.”
“I’m glad we’re having a respectful argument here,” Kobach said sarcastically. “This is so good for the viewers to have this.”
