CNN anchor asks Republicans to call in about Trump’s tweet — and the Internet reacts

CNN “New Day” anchor John Berman invited Republican Congressman to call in to the show if they found Donald Trump’s tweet racist.
- “If you are a Republican member of Congress who has issues with the President’s racist comments this weekend, we will take your call,” he wrote.
- It doesn’t appear CNN aired any calls, though it’s not immediately clear if anyone called in.
- Berman also did not provide a phone number to call, though presumably Congressional staffers have contact numbers for the network on file.
- Meanwhile, Berman’s tweet attracted a variety of wry responses — as well as some trolling.
THIS MORNING: The phone lines are open. If you are a Republican member of Congress who has issues with the President's racist comments this weekend, we will take your call.@NewDay
