CNN commentator Angela Rye had no patience for former Congressman Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) when he said the bar was lowered for President Barack Obama because of his race.
“I’m not talking to bigots,” Rye said during a CNN segment Wednesday.
Rye and Walsh were invited on air to discuss what started as a Twitter fight. In response to Rye saying that Obama “had to be the next best thing to Jesus” during his presidency, Walsh argued that the president was held to a lower standard during his two terms because he is black.
When Walsh repeatedly defended his comment, Rye succinctly responded, “That’s what makes you a bigot!”
