Can you say TOUUUCHY?! This little stunt from CNN commentator, Charles Blow, just royally embarrassed CNN. Western Journalism made the observation that CNN is nothing but a “Chaos News Network.” It’s hard to disagree when you see a “reputable” man like Blow flipping out on TV simply over being touched by a white girl. CNN’s entire segment was shut down when Paris Dennard, an analyst in the administration of George W. Bush said the segment was pushing “fake news.” In the comical segment below, liberal New York Times columnist and CNN commentator Blow went on a “Don’t touch me” rant against conservative commentator Kayleigh McEnany. McEnany started out by admitting that she didn’t believe Lemon was unfair to Trump but indicated that she thought other left-wing people were.
“I think some of my left-wing counterparts are very unfair to Trump. I think anytime there’s any sort of vagueness or gaps in the facts — when there are leaks, for instance — they insert sinister suspicion where it does not belong. I don’t think it’s you, but I do think some of my left-leaning commentators who I disagree with ideologically do that,” she said
As she said that she gestured toward Blow and appeared lightly tapped his arm.
That set him off. “Don’t touch me and then launch into your ‘sinister motivation’ diatribe,” he ranted.
I didn’t realize there is a one-inch barrier where I am not allowed to get close to you,” she retorted as Blow continued to speak. “Now that I know, I will just scoot over that way.”
“You can scoot until you fall off that ledge,” Blow replied. “That’s what I’m telling you is don’t touch me while you’re saying I’m sinister.”
McEnany then tried to calm things down.
“What you just said to me is a lot like what Maxine Waters said today when she said, ‘Look, don’t ask me to meet President Trump. I don’t even want to meet with you.’ We are all Americans. Maybe you don’t feel that way. We have one president. We should all want him to succeed. We should all be friends at the end of the day and hug it out. And if you don’t want to do that, you don’t have to do that,” she stated.
But that made him even more furious…someone pass the Midol, please? Grasping at straws, he then accused McEnany of making “a very personal attack to say I don’t believe I’m an American. Don’t do that,” he said.
I wish I could ask this fellow how it’s possible that he made it into adulthood if he’s that incapable of dealing with someone who has a differing opinion than his own.
