Awkwardness On Set After CNN Contributor References Clinton ‘Blow Job’ (Video)

“I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to say that,” CNN contributor Keith Boykin says after getting a stern look from host Erin Burnett

CNN contributor Keith Boykin made things a little awkward during an appearance on “Erin Burnett OutFront” Friday when during a heated discussion with former Sen. Rick Santorum, he made a graphic reference to Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky.

“There are serious questions about whether [Trump] is violating the constitution. Those questions are being investigated by Robert Mueller,” Boykin said. “Those are serious issues, unlike whether or not you got a blow job from an intern.”

Boykin drew the distinction after Santorum invoked the decades-old scandal, to say there was no comparison to that and the ethics issues currently surrounding Donald Trump.

Boykin swiftly apologized after receiving a stern expression from Burnett.

“I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to say that,” Boykin said.

“Speaking of things that we don’t usually say on this show,” Burnett said, artfully using the moment to pivot to Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who received criticism Friday — including from some senior Democratic lawmakers — after she told a cheering audience that the new House majority would work to swiftly impeach President Trump.

“People love you and you win,” Tlaib said during a celebration in D.C. earlier this week. “And when your son looks at you and says: ‘Momma, look, you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t.’ Because we’re going to go in there, and we’re going to impeach the motherf–er.”

The comment electrified liberal and conservative media alike, and though she came in for criticism, Tlaib refused to back down remaining defiant on Twitter. She also got an assist from one of the Hill’s new power-brokers — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

“I got your back @RashidaTlaib – the Bronx and Detroit ride together,” she said.  Republican hypocrisy at its finest: saying that Trump admitting to sexual assault on tape is just ‘locker room talk,’ but scandalizing themselves into faux-outrage when my sis says a curse word in a bar.”
