Former Senator Alan Simpson had some choice words for Alisyn Camerota during a recent appearance on CNN. Simpson took issue with the media’s obsession with Trump and other politicians particularly with regard to their past.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Alan Simpson tells off CNN host: ‘Why don’t you leave people alone and go find some new work?’
Former Sen. Alan Simpson, R-Wyo., recommended Tuesday that a CNN host find a better use of her time.
Simpson, who last week eulogized former President George H.W. Bush, made the suggestion when asked by anchor Alisyn Camerota about his ex-colleague, retiring Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah. Hatch on Monday earned criticism for saying he didn’t “care” that New York federal prosecutors seemed to implicate President Trump last week in two crimes in a sentencing memo for Michael Cohen, Trump’s former fixer.
“Why don’t you leave people alone and go find some new work?” Simpson said.
Earlier in his response regarding Hatch, Simpson, 87, said he didn’t “want to get into that kind of stuff.” But then he preceded to slam lawmakers and pundits for going “back into the life beyond.”
“If you want to pick old scabs, you better pick a new guy to go on the show,” Simpson said.
