In the second half of a contentious panel on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon, Republican National Committee spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany blew up when one panelist called President Donald Trump a “racist,” then snapped at a black conservative who mentioned the GOP does have a history of racism.
As the panel on Virginia Governor Raplph Northam’s racist photos was wrapping up, journalist Jonathan Alter inserted that Trump was a “racist, full stop,” which set McEnany off.
As McEnany shouted and Alter tried to reply to her, conservative Shermichael Singleton attempted to calm the waters by admitting the GOP has a few things to answer for when it comes to racism.
With McEnany angrily denying Trump is a racist by citing a recent tweet he wrote about Black History Month, Singleton stepped in.
“Kayleigh, I think we can all acknowledge — we can all acknowledge — and I’m a Republican, that our party has not done a great job on race relations more often than not,” he suggested.
“We ended slavery and Jim Crow!” she insisted talking over him. “We’re the party of Lincoln and have done a great job!”
