    McConnell’s family “owned” slaves? Why am I not surprised.

    • family lowe European descent, yes, but US citizen. My ancestors were enslaved by the Ottomans for hundreds of years, but I’m not over here crying about how I deserve reparations. I don’t think ppl should be held accountable for the sins of their ancestors generations removed.

    • @Naomi G I don’t think so either.πŸ‘πŸ»

      Bernie 2020!!! Make the Poor Rich Again!!

    • Ivorytower99 Black Africans sold their Black Africans Brothers to the slave traders what about Michelle Obama being man with a penis strapped between his legs

      What?

    • @family lowe “blacks” says enough about you

    • @So What You’re not African American if you were born and raised in America. Seriously. That ship (pun intended) has sailed.

      You are born here, raised here, you are a black American. Nothing African about you, and I bet good money you wouldn’t be caught dead in the African savanna. You’ll complain and hate America right here from the comfort of wherever you sit, but you’ll never leave.

      And that’s the truth.

    • @So What Everyone so afraid to tell the truth. I’m white and I don’t care if you call me white. That’s what I am. I’m not a Irish-Scotch-Russian Caucasian American. I’m just an American, and you probably won’t find me dead in the Swiss alps or on an Irish farm either anytime soon.

      Give it up and get real with people. It’s time.

      @Tt Miller most drug addicts have their narcotics legally prescribed…. it’s virtually no different than illegally obtained drugs….
      and Trump isn’t honorable, nor has he achieved anything except cringe worthy embarrassment.

    To me, McConnell is worse than Trump. Trump is just a fool, but McConnell is diabolical. His management of the Senate has permanently damaged this country. Substantively. These stupid comments are just a side issue.

  7. Comment section is 99% rogue trolls…
    So sad.
    There is no conversation possible.
    What a broken country.

    • @G L pink Floyd Oh, and thanks for proving my point! Cheers!🍻

    • I disagree with the troll comment,just because we have different views to you you shout troll.
      Some of us come here to give a dislike ,and to laugh at the joke channel CNN.
      Your post does not quite look like a conversation starter to me.what do you want to talk about ?

      Report the hate speech then go into each profile that posts them and block them. If we want to clean up the comments section then we need to be proactive

      fran bran disagreeing is not trolling. Thinking CNN is not a good network is not trolling. That being said there is a deluge of racists and homophobic comments here that are just gross and belong nowhere. Freedom
      Of speech doesn’t cover hate speech. I think that’s what the original comment refers to.

      @fran bran Of course,CNN is a joke channel! Too bad they can’t be like FOX NEWS! Truly they’re a bastion of integrity, ethics and journalistic excellence in fair and balanced/unbiased reporting! No one can make the claim that they’re actually nothing more than the media and propaganda wing of the extreme right wing republican party!πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ’©πŸ’©πŸ’©πŸ–•πŸ’©πŸ’©πŸ€₯πŸ€¬πŸ˜ πŸ€‘πŸ˜΅πŸ‘ΉπŸ€―πŸ€―πŸ™„! Delusional much!

  8. Ah the famous “ya but what about that guy” defense
    Allows you to do anything.

  9. This explains a lot neither one of them got anything doneπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Well said Senator Booker. Quick side note though, why does CNN have you looking at the vending machine in the back instead of the camera?

    Hey I’m a Caucasian but there are no slave holders in my family, we worked alongside the beautiful people who were slaves..just to eat and survive!! We were called…white trash!! We still work and labor for a living…let’s love one another!! Before the end is upon us!!!!!

    • Patronizing will get you nowhere. It just looks like you’re trying to make up for something you didn’t do. You would have no idea whether your ancestors were called white trash, so please don’t embellish your history.

    poor Don.. this presidency is ageing tf out of you. omg

  13. Notice he diesnt state what that man is in jail for and when he was incarcerated and how much he was sentenced for

  14. Booker has creepy eyes, will never be president.

  15. Lemonaids and Farticus Maximus.. birds of a feather

    Even Don Lemon thought the joke was funny πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†

  17. Booker, what have you done for your state? You’re as bad as the other senator-do-nothing, Menendez, and you want to be president? No way pal. No way.

  18. Booker could win the presidency if he would just remain speechless. Hell, any of the democrat candidates could.

  19. None of the comments suggest that what Mitch McConnell said was untrue….there are skeletons in everyone’s closet Mr. Booker.
