CNN contributor Keith Boykin had some thoughts on yesterday’s Republican SCIF sit-in. Spoiler alert: his thoughts are pretty stupid. And that’s not fake news.
Listen for yourselves:
CNN's Keith Boykin on Republicans who stormed SCIF: "This looked like a Klan group that is assembled outside of a jail trying to get the sheriff to let them in so they could deliver their own justice…"

Think the sit-in was a goofy spectacle? Fine. But likening it to a gathering of KKK vigilantes suggests you’re not a serious person who should be taken seriously.
Same ppl freaked out bc Trump used the word ‘lynching’

To his credit, Jake Tapper even brings up the “lynching” uproar. And Boykin just doubles down.
…but tell me more about political hyperbole. https://t.co/ungYsBb4bp

Parting question for Jeff Zucker:
Is this the "Straight News" show?
