Recalled Colorado senator has on-air meltdown

Two days following Colorado’s recall election weren’t enough to cool the emotions of one of the two Democratic state senators voters rejected because of their anti-Second Amendment position. She had an emotional meltdown on national TV.

CNN’s “Newsroom” anchor Brooke Baldwin asked Colorado state Sen. Angela Giron about her defeat Thursday, and taking a playbook page from the Democratic National Committee and Attorney General Eric Holder, she blamed the whole fiasco on voter suppression.

“We know what really happened here. What this story really is about, it’s about voter suppression,” she began.

“When Colorado has voted by mail — 70 percent of Coloradans vote by mail — and we didn’t have access to that mail ballot –”

Seeing where this was heading, Baldwin interrupted the soon-to-be-former senator.

“I’m going to cut you off there,” Baldwin cut in. “Let’s just not go there. Let’s get to the meat of the story.”

“That is the meat of the story,” Giron insisted.

Baldwin noted that she had enormous financial support from the gun control crowd. Reuters reposted Wednesday that $3 million was raised to defeat the recalls, with New York City Mayor Michael having put up $350,000 of it.

But Giron would have none of it.

“The people that are in support of very common sense gun legislation weren’t able to get to the polls,” Giron asserted. “We didn’t even know what the rules of the game were. This is the United States of America. We didn’t know what the rules of the game were a week out from the election; where to vote, how to vote, how to get a ballot in the mail.”

Voter suppression? Really, Baldwin wondered on Twitter? She soon got her answer from CO Peak Politics.


Ronert Galena agreed, and tweeted:


U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman came up with the real zinger, though, in the following tweet:

    I’m blown away that the CNN head slapped the liberal down so hard. Refreshing.

    She thinks her voters are just stupid. she says they don’t know where to get ballots and where to vote and so on. If I her voters I would be insulted and never vote for this idiot again!!!

    1. Kenneth Clark says:

      She absolutely, without any reserve, called the people from her former district, STUPID! Gee whiz, I would run her out of the state completely if I were the people of the district she ignored.

  3. ALBERTJ says:

    Ms. Giron is clueless on what she votes on, she sounds like Nancy Polise another clueless person
    Because she was voted out of office , it’s voter supression. Don’t they deliver the mail in her state?

  4. Kenneth Clark says:

    My suggestion to her would be this: Run again in the next full, normal election, and lets just see if your analogy is even remotely correct.
    My bet would be that she goes broke campaigning and doesn’t garner as many votes as she did in the recall.
    Upshot is this: She wanted things her way, not the people’s (her Boss) way. That is what put her in the unemployment line. She refused to listen to her boss one too many times. It wasn’t just the Gun Legislation, it was the fact that she refused to listen to her boss on many important issues. The gun issue was the final thumbing her nose at her boss. She and her co-worker.

    Apparently the voters that voted to recall you knew what “the rules were”. Were your supposed voters too dumb to figure it out?

  6. bendecido says:

    Lorrie I agree with you. It goes to show how much she knows about politics. She claims she did not know where to get the ballots for her to vote. Had she been up to date, she would have had all the info she needed to vote.
    Godd riddance to her.
