Rick Santorum Humiliated On CNN After ‘Making Excuses For Paying Off Porn Stars’

Rick Santorum Humiliated On CNN After ‘Making Excuses For Paying Off Porn Stars’ December 14, 2018

Former GOP senator and family values champion Rick Santorum is humiliated on CNN after legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin points out the hypocrisy of the religious conservative defending Trump.

Yesterday on CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin mocked Santorum for “making excuses for paying off porn stars.” The discussion concerned Trump‘s payments to women he’s had sexual affairs with to keep them quiet before the 2016 election. Commenting on the story Santorum said:

To me, the most damaging thing is the fact that the president hasn’t come clean over the course of time.

Toobin then jumped in to poke fun at Santorum’s hypocrisy:

Anderson, Anderson, Anderson. Putting aside the whole issue of how amazing it is to listen to Rick Santorum, who made his entire career — successful for a time — on the basis of morality in politics, making excuses for paying off porn stars and women with whom you’ve had affairs, putting that to one side, isn’t the reason…

At that point a visibly upset Santorum interrupted Toobin, declaring:

Jeffrey, you’re not going to put that to the side. I’m not making excuses for Donald Trump having an affair with a porn star. I mean, that’s disgusting, that’s tawdry. I’m addressing the question as to what is the illegality involved here, and the illegality is not the contribution. The illegality is not reporting it. I’m not condoning it. And don’t suggest that I am.

Toobin replied:

Isn’t the reason he’s lying because he did something bad in the first place?

Commenting on the story, DeadState notes:

According to various reports, Trump was at an August 2015 meeting that investigators believe was part of an illegal scheme to violate campaign finance laws to help Trump win the presidency.

Santorum, who is a conservative Catholic and a Republican, has made his name in politics as a gay-bashing, prudish, family values religious conservative. And he is no stranger to controversy. In 2015, as a GOP presidential hopeful, Santorum made the absurd claim that President Obama had established “a secular theocracy” that represented “a very serious threat to liberty in America.”

In addition, Santorum has advocated for putting Bibles back into schools, and has argued that the separation of church and state is not an American idea, but a communist idea.

Bottom line: Former GOP senator and family values champion Rick Santorum was humiliated on CNN after legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin pointed out the hypocrisy of the religious conservative defending Trump and “making excuses for paying off porn stars.”
