Even CNN thinks Tim Kaine’s denial that ‘sanctuary cities’ exist is hilarious

When even CNN thinks a Democrat’s comments need to be questioned, it’s got to be saying something.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo called out Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine on Thursday when he suggested that sanctuary cities are a “phantom.”

“When Donald Trump kind of goes after these phantom sanctuary cities and talks about how bad they are, basically what he’s going after is police chiefs,” Kaine said on CNN’s “New Day.” And I trust police chiefs in terms of knowing what should be done to keep their communities safer and police departments and mayors a lot more than I trust Donald Trump.”

Surprisingly, a somewhat astonished seeming Cuomo did not let the comment slip by.

“But why do you say phantom?” he asked the Virginia senator.

“You know that there are places that refuse to cooperate with ICE and they have their assembly of different reasons for why they do it, but sanctuary cities are real. They exist. They’re not phantom,” he said.
