Monday’s CNN This Morning featured several segments where the anchors, Phil Mattingly and Abby Phillip, had in-depth discussions on Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA and the blowback to her recent condemnation of Israel as a “racist state.” Along with several guests, both anchors expressed their annoyance that Jayapal had perpetuated a long-standing “internal battle that Democrats have had” regarding a stance towards Israel and its government.

The first segment featured the panel with CNN political analyst Jackie Kucinich and Axios national political reporter Alex Thompson, and Phillip introduced the subject by playing the clip of Jayapal’s statement, describing it as “part of a broader set of problems for Democrats dealing with some members who have been pilloried as anti-Israel.”
