Antonio LeGrier speaks to CNN (screen grab)

Antonio LeGrier, the father of a 19-year-old man killed by police over the weekend, broke down in tears during an interview with CNN on Tuesday.

On Saturday, Chicago police shot and killed LeGrier’s son, Quintonio, after the father called 911 to get help dealing with a mental issue the teen was having.

Throughout Tuesday’s interview with CNN host Brooke Baldwin, LeGrier struggled to keep his composure. But time and time again, his emotions took over.

Tears welled up in LeGrier’s eyes before Baldwin asked her first question. And at times, he sobbed uncontrollably, putting his head in his hands.

“This just doesn’t feel right,” the CNN host eventually noted before cutting to a commercial break.

When the broadcast resumed, LeGrier had regained his composure, but within minutes, he was sobbing again.

“I’m doing this interview and the lawsuit so no one can just walk away and sweep it under the rug,” he explained. “Because my son’s life will not be in vain. I need the nation to know that I, Antonio LeGrier, father of Quintonio LeGrier, raised a good son.”

“I want to be the first one to say, I am now his voice! I’m his voice,” LeGrier said, touching his hand to chest. “I’m all he’s got to tell his story.”

“I think Antonio has had enough,” LeGrier’s attorney told Baldwin.

“I think he has,” she agreed.

"The View" panelists burst into laughter over Rudy Giuliani's denial that he did anything inappropriate with a young actress in the new "Borat" sequel.

President Donald Trump's attorney appears as himself in the faux documentary "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm," starring comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and Bulgarian actor Maria Bakalova.

Giuliani accepts an invitation to join Bakalova, who plays Borat's 15-year-old daughter, for a drink in a hotel bedroom after an interview, and Cohen bursts into the room after Guiliani lies down on a bed and stuffs his hand into his pants.

"He says he didn't do anything inappropriate," said host Whoopi Goldberg. "He's just sort of, you know, tucking his shirt in when he was laying on his back."

WATCH: Trump supporter gets tied up in knots defending president’s $750 income tax payments

Published

on

A support of President Donald Trump this week struggled to defend the president paying just $750 per year in federal income tax.

During an interview with CNN correspondent Elle Reeve, a half-masked Trump supporter said that he wasn't bothered by the president's low tax bill because he figured all rich people pay so little in taxes.

"I would love to be able to comment on that," he replied. "I don't know. And it's one of those situations where you and I can both sit here and say if we made that kind of money, you know, you're going to play the tax game. It's set for millionaires to play the game."
