Classless is the best way to describe the comments CNN chief national correspondent and Inside Politics host John King made during Thursday’s edition of CNN Newsroom. Venting his rage at Congressional Republicans for the drama surrounding the speaker election process, King wondered how things would’ve turned out for Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin after his cardiac arrest if the medical staff acted like members of the GOP.

“They don't care. They don’t care,” King huffed, casting false aspersions on Republican attitudes about governing. He went on to lecture Republicans about how they needed to conduct themselves as part of a team and the chaos that creates when they don’t get in line:

Especially when you have a small majority, you have to accept your responsibility as a member of the team. Pick your business, pick your sport. Imagine if a baseball team goes on the field, and after two pitches the right fielder decides, “I want to pitch.” It can’t work that way, someone has to be in charge.
