CNN’s Don Lemon: “It’s A Legitimate Question” To Ask White House If They Support Slavery
Chris Menahan | Information Liberation reports:
Asking the White House and President Donald Trump whether they believe “slavery was wrong” is a “legitimate question,” according to CNN’s Don Lemon.
White House reporter April Ryan of American Urban Radio Networks asked press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Wednesday whether the White House and President Trump support slavery.
“The question is, does this administration believe, does the president believe slavery was wrong? And before you answer, Mary Frances Berry, a historian, said in 1860 there was a compromise. The compromise was to have Southern states keep slavery but the Confederacy fired on Fort Sumter that caused the Civil War. And because of the Civil War, what happened? The North won,” Ryan said.
Sanders blew off the question, saying, “I think it is disgusting and absurd to suggest that anyone inside of this building would support slavery.”
Don Lemon had Ryan on his show Wednesday night to back her up.
