Real Clear Politics reports:
CNN’s Gary Tuckman, a correspondent on the ground in Phoenix, could barely speak to anchor Don Lemon after he got tear gassed.
“All of our faces are burning, all of our throats are burning,” Tuckman reported.
“There were some water bottles thrown at police and the next thing we felt were the burning tear gas,” he explained.
Earlier, another CNN reporter nearly got hit by the lit end of a smoke grenade after protesters chucked water bottles at the police.
