Dem. Senator claims CNN 'bumped' his interview due to Kate Middleton's cancer diagnosis

A Democratic U.S. Senator says that CNN canceled his interview so that it could, instead, cover Kate Middleton's cancer diagnosis. 

Not only that, but, according to the Daily Mail, U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) took to social media to complain about the situation, posting a message to his official X account.

Suffice it to say that Murphy's message really did not look good after Middleton revealed that she had cancer.

And, for this reason, Murphy has now deleted his message.

Murphy's complaint

The Democratic Senator posted his message just before Middleton made her cancer diagnosis on Friday. He did so by responding to a report from journalist Yashar Ali indicating that U.S. news outlets were planning to cover Middleton's announcement at 2 p.m.

"News. I'm told by multiple sources that U.S. networks will broadcast a special report on Kate Middleton's health at 2 p.m. Eastern time today," Ali wrote.

Murphy replied, "Can confirm!"

He continued, "I was supposed to be on @CNN at 2 p.m. to talk about the anniversary of the Affordable Care Act and the millions of lives it has saved, but my interview has been bumped by this much more important topic."

Clearly, Murphy was being sarcastic when he wrote "this much more important topic." He obviously thought that his Affordable Care Act interview was much more important. But, he could not have been more wrong.

Middleton makes the announcement

It was not long after Murphy posted his message that Middleton released her video message on Instagram, informing the world that she has cancer.

She said:

In January, I underwent major abdominal surgery in London and at the time, it was thought that my condition was non-cancerous. The surgery was successful. However, tests after the operation found cancer had been present. My medical team therefore advised that I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy and I am now in the early stages of that treatment.

Middleton went on to say that the reason why she waited so long to reveal this information is because she and Prince William have been processing it and have been trying to figure out a way to handle the situation in the best possible manner for their children.

The situation backfired spectacularly on Murphy, and it appears that he has now gone into hiding, hoping that no one will notice what he did.

The Daily Mail reports, "Murphy has since deleted the tweet." The outlet adds, "'s request for comment to Murphy's office wasn't immediately returned."
