Soledad O’Brien Kills Allen West’s ‘Communist’ Accusations (VIDEO)
Matt | On 19, Apr 2012
Watch CNN’s Soledad O’Brien take Rep. Allen West (R-FL) to task over his comments last week that some members of Congress are Communists.
West threw the accusation at 78-81 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus at a local event in Florida. He never provided names of people even when pressed about it. Figures.
O’Brien was able to corner West and at least make him address the allegations head on. She read a list of caucus members and questioned West about their Communist Party membership. O’Brien took it a step further with a written statement from a real Communist Party member who thought West’s claims were outlandish and a ploy to lay blame.
Check out how defensive West became when he was pressed about the issue. He’s obviously uncomfortable discussing anything other than his talking points.
