CNN political commentator Angela Rye broke down in tears Wednesday night during a spiel about President Donald Trump’s elitism and “racist tendencies.”
During a segment hosted by Don Lemon, former Florida Republican Rep. David Jolly accused the Trump administration of elitism, white privilege and nationalism.
“This president is racist,” Jolly stated. “He continues to peddle what is very clearly racist tendencies.”
Expressing thanks to Jolly’s statement, Rye flipped out and complained that she’s labeled as a racist when she criticizes Trump.
“I’m told every day, on air, that I’m racist because I call out racism,” Rye said while breaking down into tears. “That is maddening to me. And I’m crying about it because it’s crazy!”
She then demanded: “I want to be acknowledged and seen, that this is not okay for our children. This is not okay for the future direction of this country.” (RELATED: Rye Says The National Anthem is ‘Problematic’)
“It means the world to me,” Rye said while thanking Jolly.
