Trump surrogate and New York Republican Party regional chairman John LaValle told so many falsehoods about the Comey letter and the FBI, two CNN hosts had to stop him from talking.
November 1, 2016

CNN's Kathy Bolduan had to almost physically stop Trump surrogate and New York Republican Party regional chairman John LaValle from speaking because he threw out so much bogus nonsense pertaining to James Comey's letter and Hillary Clinton's emails.

Kate said, “John, are you not listening to the words that are coming out of our mouths?! We have to fact-check you live. Stop! Stop!”

Margaret Hoover, who is a Republican, just shook her head when LaValle started his monologue off by lying about how incredible Trump is beating Hillary in early voting.

“That’s not true. That’s not true," Hoover repeatedly said before LaValle even got to James Comey.

Co-host John Berman tried to correct LaValle on the early voting totals and LaValle changed subjects and said, "she's buried an Comey had to come forward to even the tables. She ran around this country telling everyone 'I was cleared."..."

Huh? Now it's Comey's job to even out the election? LaValle just admitted that James Comey acted purely as a Trump surrogate.

And the fact is that Hillary was cleared by the FBI.

He continued lying and said, "They found thousands upon thousands of e-mails that she didn't turn over..."

More lies...

Berman and Bolduan interrupted and said, "They found 650,000 e-mails that belonged to Anthony Weiner..."

Bolduan interjected, "John, are you not listening to the words that are coming out of our mouths?! We have to fact-check you live. Stop! Stop Stop!”

LaValle wouldn't stop and said, "These are facts..."

Bolduan again put her hands up and said, "John, you know I love you, but stop it right now."

She continued, "There are 650,000 e-mails related to the Anthony Weiner investigation. We don't know if they're related to Hillary Clinton, what percentage is related at all to Hillary Clinton, went through Hillary Clinton's server. We don't know anything. Just stick with the facts."

LaValle said, "James Comey is going to make that an announcement when some of those 650,000 e-mails pertain to Hillary Clinton, and I'm going to bet right now there are secure e-mails on those..."

Berman said, "Again, but you don' know..."

Hillary supporter Phillip Levine called onto question why Comey never released any information about Russian hackers being tied to Trump.

By the end Hoover had had enough and castigated LaValle again and said, "I feel like I'm living in this deja vu nightmare. In 2012 the Republican Party was telling us we were going to win. Mitt Romney was going to win in Michigan.We don't have enough Republican voters to win an election."

She continued, " We have to win independents. We have to win women. We have to win Hispanics. We have to win minorities. We need to really rethink what this party stands for and really start selling it on national elections."

Trump surrogates are constantly making sh*t up and CNN should tell them they will be barred from any more TV work if they continue.
