CNN anchorwoman Erin Burnett has suggested the Iranians chanting “Death to America” are only using the phrase figuratively, and “couldn’t have been more friendly” to her during her time at an anti-American rally in Iran’s capital.
In a recent segment on CNN, Ms Burnett explains: “Well, I will say, I was in Tehran when they were chanting “Death to America” once. I was at a rally. The people couldn’t have been more friendly to me personally as an American.
Ms Burnett continued, “It sort of felt like a thing and a trope, as opposed to anything that was actually seriously meant and considered.”
THIS IS CNN
The people chanting “Death to America” “couldn’t have been more friendly”.
