Former Rep. Joe Walsh doubled down on his racist remarks in an interview on CNN Wednesday. Democratic consultant Angela Rye outright refused to speak directly to him instead, saying she didn’t talk to bigots.
The internet filled with rage-tweets as Walsh continued and fans of Rye’s no-nonsense style and quick wit heralded the classy smackdown of the one-term Congressman.
Check out the the commentary below:

Watching @angela_rye handle Joe Walsh have me a flashback to "talk to the hand" back in the day.
