A panel on Fox News @ Night exploded Thursday as Democratic National Committee Vice Chair Michael Blake confronted conservative commentator Matt Schlapp about his racist tweets.
Following the vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Schlapp tweeted out a photo of three senators who are people of color with a warning to whites in rural states. Even some Republican commentators were aghast at the time.
Blake called Schlapp out over the tweets. Schlapp, who made waves earlier this year for a series of racist remarks about former RNC chief Michael Steele, became angry.
"So I'm a racist—this is where you guys always go," Schlapp said. "This is irresponsible!"
Anchor Shannon Bream tried to calm the situation.
Blake repeated the contents of Schlapp's tweet, which he called "the epitome of race-baiting."
"Every deplorable and Trump supporter who is now listening to this interview can now see that what Democrats do is call us fascists and racists," Schlapp said.
"Not all of you—you, Matt," Blake said.
Schlapp then launched into a defense of Kavanaugh where he accused Blake of trying to make it about race.
"You're literally lying on national TV," Blake said.
"Stop this! This is an irresponsible use of time on this show!" Schlapp said.
"Gentlemen," Bream said. "Gentlemen!"
"I, quite frankly, am not going to put up with it!" Schlapp said.
