Skeeters? CNN Insinuates Obama is Lying About His Skeet Shooting Hobby
During a segment on Monday night, Burnett took over two minutes to dissect the president's shooting claim -- and she found it wanting.
"Obama the skeet shooter," she began. "Yeah, I'm not making this up. I mean, if someone is, it isn't me."
She then played the clip of CNN's Jessica Yellin confronting Press Secretary Jay Carney on the comments, repeatedly asking if a picture of the activity existed and why no one had ever heard of him doing it before.
If there are truthers and birthers, should there now be a new term for those who are doubting President Obama's claim that he goes skeet shooting "all the time"? And should that term be "skeeters"? If so, count CNN's rising young star Erin Burnett among the gadflies.
