Obnoxious CNN host’s ‘bizarre’ scolding of Priebus for saying ‘I don’t believe a thing’ the president says

Now that the Republican Party has regained control of both chambers of Congress, CNN host Erin Burnett wants to know if they’re ready to make a “fresh start” with President Obama.

Acting almost as a mouthpiece for the president, Burnett asked Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus if his party is going to compromise with the man who has spent six years refusing to compromise with them.

But Priebus wasn’t buying what the smug Burnett was selling.

“I don’t believe a thing he says,” the head of the RNC said. “He’s been talking about immigration reform for seven years, so you’re using his words as if they actually mean something and asking me to respond to it.”

Burnett proceeded to lecture Preibus for “not putting forth a tone that is ‘All right, let’s do a fresh start and work together.’”

Priebus pushed back, saying Obama has “screwed up even his own priorities on this issue.”

“The American people repudiated the policies of Barack Obama, and everyone that was connected to him to now say: ‘Well, what are you guys going to do to compromise with the person that the American people have just repudiated?'” he added. “I think it’s a little bizarre.”
