A panel discussion on CNN collapsed into complete chaos Monday morning as host Kate Bouldan lost control when two guests alternated calling each “racist” in between shocked “how dare you’s!”
With former Bill Clinton aide Keith Boykin sitting at her side, Bouldan brought on Lou Gargiulo, a Trump campaign chair from New Hampshire appearing via Skype.
While the discussion about the white nationalist march in Charlottesville was contentious, things spiraled out of control when Boykin said President Donald Trump was catering to “the base, racist and white supremacists” with his Sunday speech.
“How dare you call Trump supporters racist, sir,” Gargiulo shouted.
“Oh, my god. You stand-up here and defend Nazis. That shows you’re a racist.” Boykin shot back adding, “Don’t you dare call me what I can call –” before Gargiulo cut in repeating, “How dare you call Trump supporters — not all Trump supporters are racist!”
“Those who don’t stand-up and call out the racism coming from Trump and Steve Bannon and Stephon Miller in the White House — those people are racist and they need to be called out for it,” Boykin parried. “How dare you question me on that? You have a lot of nerve”
As Bouldan repeated “guys, hang on, hang on,” the Republican exclaimed, “Yeah, it’s appalling that he would call Americans, Trump supporters racist.”
“Trump supporters are racist,” Boykin interjected. “If you don’t know that, you are exactly the problem, sir.”
