Is Symone Sanders on CNN just to provide comic relief? Because almost every time she’s on the air, she says something so ridiculous it inspires laughter. This week, she actually suggested that Democrats have been respectful during the Kavanaugh hearings.

CNN Strategist Says Dems ‘Extremely Respectful’ at Kavanaugh Hearing
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s daughters didn’t leave their father’s hearing because it got heated, according to one CNN strategist.
After interruptions from both Democrats and protesters, Kavanaugh’s young daughters were ushered out of his confirmation hearing on Sept. 4. Despite contradicting reports, CNN strategist Symone Sanders argued that they were “already going to get up” and “Democrats were “extremely respectful” during the hearing.
During The Lead with Jake Tapper on Sept. 4, Sanders applauded Democrats.
“I think the Democrats were extremely respectful today in the hearing,” she urged. “They were simply asking for, under regular order, ‘Please, Mr. Chairman, let’s delay, let’s get the documents. We feel like we don’t have enough information to be able to effectively advise and consent on this issue.’”
But Republican strategist Josh Holmes disagreed.
“Simone, I love you, but so ‘respectful’ that they had to dismiss Judge Kavanaugh’s daughters from the hearing room at one point,” he said of 13-year-old Margaret and 10-year-old Liza.
