A Trump supporter’s confrontation with CNN analyst Angela Rye’s over “attacks” on the president backfired Thursday when she demanded Rye “say one nice thing” about the commander-in-chief.
“The president has an obligation to stop picking on reporters,” Rye said in the panel debate with Women for Trump co-founder Amy Kremer, after 10 pipe bombs were mailed to prominent Democrats and to CNN. “He’s not only used a bully pulpit, but he’s been a bully.”
After asserting that Trump was “very presidential” in his response to the bombs, Kremer pivoted.
“Everything Angela just said was an attack on the president,” the Women for Trump activist said. “Tell me one nice thing about the president.”
“Was any of it untrue?” CNN host Chris Cuomo asked Kremer, echoing Rye’s assertion that what she’d said was true.
“It doesn’t matter if it’s untrue or not!” the Trump supporter exclaimed, causing a confused interruption from Cuomo and laughter from Rye.
Kremer said that she “doesn’t disagree” with everything the liberal legal analyst said — and then insisted that “some of it’s untrue.”

WATCH: Republicans throw tantrum and call Chairman Nadler a ‘dictator’ for announcing Friday vote on impeachment
Republicans freaked out on Thursday after Chairman Jerry Nadler announced that the House Judiciary Committee will be holding a Friday vote on the two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
After 11 p.m. on Thursday, Nadler announced that the committee would resume its work and vote on impeachment on Friday.
The Chairman announced he would divide the issue and allow separate votes on each article of impeachment at 10 a.m. on Friday.
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) freaked out over the vote being called, even though Democrats had repeatedly said through the two-day hearing that there would be a vote before members left for the weekend.
Mitch McConnell says he’s in ‘total coordination with the White House’ on Trump’s impeachment
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said clearly on Thursday what many have assumed: When articles of impeachment come over from the House of Representatives, as is expected, to his chamber, he will be acting virtually as President Donald Trump’s defense attorney.
“Everything I do during this, I’m coordinating with White House counsel,” he said on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show. “There will be no difference between the President’s position and our position as to how to handle this.”
He noted that, unlike the many other issues that come to his chamber, he’s unable to block impeachment. If it comes, he has to hold a trial, he admitted somewhat ruefully.
UK’s Boris Johnson looks set for big win in ‘Brexit election’
Prime Minister Boris Johnson's ruling party appeared on course for a sweeping victory in Thursday's snap election, an exit poll showed, paving the way for Britain to leave the EU next month after years of political deadlock.
The Conservatives were forecast to win a thumping 368 out of 650 seats in parliament -- which if confirmed would be the party's biggest majority in three decades -- according to the survey published as polls closed.
The pound jumped by about two percent against the dollar on the projected results of what all sides had painted as the most momentous election in Britain in a generation.
