In discussing allegations on CNN that Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore assaulted a minor teenage girl Breitbart News senior editor-at-large Joel Pollak pointed out that Ringo Starr was "thirtysomething" when he covered "You're Sixteen, You're Beautiful, and You're Mine."
From Washington Examiner:
"You know, in 1973, Ringo Starr hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts with the song 'You're Sixteen, You're Beautiful and You're Mine,'" Pollak said on CNN. "And it was a remake of an earlier song. He was 30-something at the time, singing about a 16-year-old. You want to take away Ringo Starr's achievement?"
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo frowned and replied, "You can't be serious."
"You think that Ringo Starr's song is supposed to be a nod towards allowing 30-year-old men to prey on teenagers?" Cuomo continued. "You don't believe that, Joel. You're a parent. You don't believe that."
Pollak shot back at Cuomo, saying, "You're also a parent, and you know that when you raise sons, the risk that our sons face today is that they're going to be exposed to accusations that may or may not be true."
