CNN’s Angela Rye under fire for disgusting behavior towards Trump supporter… and her disabled, minority son

Trump campaign adviser Dr. Gina Loudon fired back at CNN pundit Angela Rye, who dismissively rolled her eyes when Loudon discussed her adopted disabled son Samuel, who has Down Syndrome.

Loudon mentioned her son to spotlight the bigotry Samuel faces not only because he’s disabled, but because he’s a minority. Loudon said having a minority, disabled son has made her extremely sensitive to discrimination.

That’s when Rye — who apparently thinks white people should never complain about anything — rudely rolled her eyes and suggested that Loudon adopted a disabled boy (whom she has to care for for the rest of her life) as a political prop.

Loudon responded by saying she will never stop advocating for disabled children no matter how much she gets bullied or dismissed.

“I’m used to enduring judgement and bullying, and so is my son,” Loudon told the Daily Caller. “I will not stop advocating for my child and others like him simply because of people who will roll their eyes or dismiss me.”

The controversy erupted during a CNN segment where Angela Rye was trashing President Trump as a racist while discussing fired White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman.

As BizPac Review previously reported, Omarosa was fired by chief of staff John Kelly for abusing the White House car service and for using the WH to stage a wedding photo shoot without permission.

Angela Rye rolled her eyes when Gina Loudon mentioned her disabled son Samuel.

“What disappoints me is the division, and the fact that we’re having to count people based on their skin color,” Loudon said. “I have an adopted minority son who happens to have Down Syndrome. He experiences bigotry every single day, not just because of his skin color but also because of his disability. I would not support a president that I believed was going to be a threat to his future.”

 

Loudon added:

I would like a constructive conversation. And I think points like yours that are focusing only on the negative and not even acknowledging the 700,000 new jobs for black people in this country, record low unemployment…What Andrew Cuomo said today…upset me, [saying] that America has never been great. Let’s focus on what we have done.”

 

Rye reacted by recoiling in her seat, rolling her eyes, and saying she agrees with Democratic New York governor Andrew Cuomo, who said “America was never that great.”

Rye quipped: “America has never been great. And it’s not great because people like you come on and lie for the President of the United States and then bring out your son as an example! Like, you gotta be completely ashamed of yourself!”

This is not the first time that Angela Rye has played the race card. In fact, that’s her signature go-to move instead of arguing on the facts. She even plays the race card when debating other minorities.

In June 2018, Rye played the race card on Steve Cortes, the president of the Trump Hispanic Advisory Council, while defending Maxine Waters’ incitement of mob harassment against female Trump aides Sarah Sanders and Kirstjen Nielsen.

This is what liberals like Angela Rye are actually triggered by:

President Trump’s approval rating among black voters has rocketed to 36% — and that’s despite wall-to-wall negative media coverage slamming him as a racist.

Many black Americans do not buy Omarosa’s racism attacks against President Trump.

Preach it, Kanye.

Remember when Omarosa effusively praised President Trump?

Remember when black voter Henry Davis was moved to tears while discussing how proud he was of President Trump?

Flashback: Here’s how Henry reacted the day after Election Night 2016.
