The 2016 presidential election has everyone on edge.

CNN host Don Lemon was a little testy Friday night, cutting the mic to a guest barely one minute into a segment.

Lemon asked guest Omarosa Manigault to respond to the “over the top” Twitter war between Republican front-runner Donald Trump and rival Ted Cruz, and when the former “Apprentice” contestant and Trump supporter tried to redirect her answer, he lost it.

“I’m not gonna let you do that,” Lemon interjected. “Omarosa, stop!”

And when she continued talking, he called for her mic to be cut.

“Cut the mic, everybody,” Lemon said, gesturing to his neck. “We’re not doing that. I want everyone on this panel to answer the question directly.”

He then abruptly went to commercial, with fellow panelist and Cruz supporter Kellyanne Conway never getting past hello.
