McCain Lashes Out at CNN

For someone who went through a presidential campaign cycle, Sen. John McCain hasn’t quite learned how to tolerate tough questions. On Thursday, journalists revealed that McCain skipped a classified Senate Homeland Security briefing about the Benghazi attack in order to hold a press conference on events in Libya. Asked by CNN’s Ted Barrett why he didn’t just go to the briefing to get his questions answered, McCain snapped. “I’m not going to comment on how I spend my time to the media.” Pressed further McCain snapped, “Because I have the right as a senator to have no comment and who the hell are you to tell me I can or not?” A spokesman later said McCain had missed the hearing “due to a scheduling error.”
