CNN commentator whips out phone to continue insane Twitter war with Joe Walsh … on air

Powered by Topple

A day-long Twitter war between Angela Rye and Joe Walsh turned white-hot when it hit the studios of CNN.

It got pretty much shut down when Rye, a former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus, played the left’s overused race card. She said of the conservative talk radio host and former congressman, “I’m not talking to bigots!”

Their bone of contention started with the dressing down White House press secretary Sean Spicer gave April Ryan during Tuesday’s daily press briefing. Afterwards Ryan got ridiculed mercilessly on social media.

Rye thought it racist and sexist.  Walsh on the other hand, believed she wasn’t treated any differently than any white male journalist and felt it was time for her to don her big girl pants and move on.

Walsh observed that the left always falls back on racism when the facts don’t support their argument.

He conceded that Spicer may have been a “condescending jerk,” but added that “Spicer has been a condescending jerk to white male reporters a whole heck of a lot.”

He said Ryan was a fine reporter who should want to be treated like any other — not handled with kid gloves.

Rye claimed to be “sick and tired” of a White House that marginalizes people, “whether they are different because they are black, whether they are different because they crossed the border or whether they are different because they worship a different god.”

When Walsh attempted to respond to Rye’s attack, Rye wasn’t having it.

“I’m not talking to bigots!” she said with finality.

Walsh continued with his response, re-stating that the White House chief spokesman hadn’t treated Ryan any differently that anyone else in the press pool.

CNN host Brooke Baldwin cut in.

“Whoa, why use ‘the B-word, Angela?'” she asked of Nye.

“Because he’s a bigot!” she replied, and whipped out her cell phone to rehash the morning’s Twitter war.

Walsh launched the tweet in response to Rye essentially saying Obama had to act “like Jesus” and was held to a higher standard.

Walsh tried to explain his tweet by stating that Obama got a free pass from any criticism by the press because he was the first black president. Walsh later apologized for the tweet.

“And that,” as a joke’s punchline goes, “is when the fight started” — or in this case continued.

That was followed by six minutes of intense verbal warfare, with Rye excoriating Walsh, lambasting President Trump and condemning CNN for even giving the former congressman a platform upon which to speak.

“I’m not interested in having a dialogue with someone like Joe who has demonstrated a propensity toward bigotry,” she said.

Walsh said his disagreement with Rye was over her claim the former President Obama had to live up to a higher standard throughout his administration. “I find that laughable,” he said, adding that news media coddled him and thereby held him to a very low standard.
