CNN Asks If GOP Holding Convention Tuesday Is 'Appropriate'

CNN's John Berman, reporting live from the floor of the GOP convention, asked a Louisiana delegate if it wasn't "inappropriate" for the Republican Party to continue the convention on Tuesday night with Hurricane Isaac set to make landfall in Louisiana.

"There's been a lot of talk about whether it's appropriate at all for Republicans to be having this convention tonight, these festivities. Do you feel like there's any issue there?" he asked.

"So this isn't inappropriate in any way, what's going on," Berman followed up. The delegate answered "No, not at all."
