WATCH: CNN Guest Goes Nuts, Blames GOP for Breakdown in Civility, Implies They Support Violence
University of Virginia professor Larry Sabato claimed that Republicans “promote” political violence and told CNN host Poppy Harlow to “get around more” when she challenged his point.

“Well first of all it’s not half the country…but Republicans support it because it’s promoted by their side, by their president, and by people associated with the Republican Party,” Sabato said.

In her final point, Harlow said she knows a lot of Republicans and none of them condone violence, to which Sabato snarkily said Harlow needs to “get around more, need to get around out of that studio a little more.”
