BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – CNN political commentator Scott Jennings called out Vice President Harris over her claim that Florida’s middle school curriculum included lessons on how enslaved people “benefited from slavery.”
” This is a completely made-up deal. I looked at the standards, I even looked at an analysis of the standards, in every instance where the word slavery or slave was used, I even read the statement of the African American scholars that wrote the standards. Not Ron DeSantis, but the scholars,” he said.
“Everybody involved in this says this is completely a fabricated issue and yet look at how quickly Kamala Harris jumped on it. So the fact that this is her best moment, a fabricated matter, is pretty ridiculous,” Jennings continued.
“I’ll tell you what’s pretty awful, CNN not cutting Scott’s mic!” Harris commented in a tweet. “I thought that network would do a better job of defending and protecting me. Instead, they allowed a white man to criticize a story that I made up.”
