Charles Blow, a writer for the New York Times, and President Donald Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnay clashed on-air during a live CNN broadcast. Blow took umbrage at McEnay touching him while being critical of liberals criticizing the current president and alleging that the writer isn’t proud to be an American.
Raw Story reports:
“Don’t do that,” Blow began after McEnany touched his arm and claimed her liberal friends were being unfair. “Don’t touch me and say that’s your ‘sinister motivations.’ That’s not going to happen tonight.”
McEnany said that she would gladly scoot away from him. “You can scoot until you fall off that ledge,” Blow replied. “What I’m telling you is don’t touch me and while you’re saying I’m sinister.”
McEnany tried to play the tune: “we’re all Americans” and should play nice unless he doesn’t want to be that way.
Blow added, “You are about to turn it from a civil conversation into me telling you…that is a very personal attack to say I don’t believe I’m an American. Don’t do that,” Blow shot back.
