Iranian protesters chanting “Death to America” didn’t really mean it, CNN’s Erin Burnett told Rep. Mike Turner (R-Ohio) during a segment of Erin Burnett Outfront.

What’s more, Iranian protesters chanting “Death to America” in Tehran “couldn’t have been nicer” to the CNN host, she said on her show Thursday:

REP. MIKE TURNER: “Iran itself continues to have its entire parliament to chant ‘Death to America.’ It's not as if it's a surprise that Iran has been coordinating and targeting interests throughout the Middle East.”

CNN’s ERIN BURNETT: “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.

“It sort of felt like a -- it felt like a thing and a trope, as opposed to anything that actually was seriously meant and considered.”
