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!”

"No matter what your politics are, I have to say that I appreciate the access ?Trump? gives us on a regular basis and the ability to ask any question," she said.
She tagged Stephanie Grisham in her tweet, who is Trump's latest press secretary. She also tagged her husband, John Roberts, who does not work in the White House, but works for Fox News.
