Former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli was on CNN to talk about the tragic events in Charlottesville.
Responding to questions from host Chris Cuomo, he was repeatedly interrupted by panelist Symone Sanders.
Finally, he had enough.
Watch the exchange:

From the video:
Cuomo: “Let’s get a point of clarification. Ken, what do you disagree with, exactly? Symone’s argument is basically that you know what white supremacists are about, you know what Robert E. Lee evokes. That’s what they use for the basis for coming to gather. What is your point of disagreement, exactly?”
Cuccinelli: “Right. My point of disagreement is that was an excuse to bring these groups together. The local blogger who got the permit to protest the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue then blew this up. That was an excuse. Look at how they even got the permit – “

Sanders: “And now someone’s dead.”
Cuccinelli: “Can I finish, Symone? Will you just shut up for a minute and let me finish?”
Sanders: “Pardon me, sir. You don’t get to tell me to ‘shut up’ on national television!”
As the segment continued, Chris Cuomo blasted Cuccinelli for telling Symone Sanders to “shut up.” He tried to regain control of the interview, but it was over.
CNN’s level continues to drop. Constant interruptions from panelists. Ridiculous statements. Biased reporting.
When someone on the right stands up to the bullying of CNN panelists, they get shouted down.
Finally, one man stood up!
