Rick Santorum: Trump Was Just Using ‘Filler Words’ When He Said He’d Accept Foreign Interference

Rick Santorum, one of CNN’s resident Trump defenders, tried with all his might Wednesday night to rally to President Trump’s defense after the president said he’d be open to accepting foreign interference on his 2020 opponent, claiming the president was merely speaking “colloquially.”

“He has, sort of—as we all do, filler words that don’t mean what they say, like, ‘I think,’” Santorum attempted to explain. “So I took the president for his word that he would do both, which I think, I don’t think that’s necessarily inappropriate as long as he refers it to the FBI. As far as looking at the information, maybe he should and maybe she shouldn’t and I don’t think it’s a crime in looking at the information as long as you refer it to the proper authorities.”
