I call these coffee-spitting moments. CNN should have to pay the dry-cleaning bills for their viewers if they insist on keeping people of the ilk of Jack Kingston on their payroll.

Appearing on CNN’s New Day, Kingston attempted to tamp down the story by saying the charges and arrests amount to “bullying,” while maintaining there is no evidence of Russian collusion.

“I don’t think they’re going to find any evidence of collusion,” Kingston began. “I think they’re going to try to get somebody and use him as a stalking horse to try to get somebody else to say something. But, you know, a little bit of bullying is going on here and I think the timing is very suspect. We as Trump supporters are coming off a very good week, not just with the budget, but –”

Kingston was then pulled up short by host Victor Blackwell as the panel looked on incredulously.

“When you say bullying, who is being bullied?” the stunned Blackwell asked.

“I think that what they are doing is they’re sending a signal, and Carl Bernstein said it earlier, they’re sending a signal for other people that, you know, you better step forward, you better cooperate,” Kingston explained. “Here is somebody who probably had maybe the equivalent of a traffic violation in terms of the big picture here and they’re going to use them as an example.”

As the entire panel burst into laughter at the mention of traffic tickets, former DC Democratic Party Chairman A. Scott Bolden jumped in to break criminal procedures down for the Trump defender.
