Fireworks went off between GOP Senate candidate Corey Stewart and CNN host Kate Bolduan when they discussed the violence in Charlottesville.
Stewart is running against Democrat Tim Kaine for a seat in the US Senate. He defended the stance President Trump took that “both sides” were responsible for what went down in Charlottesville.
Per Daily Caller:
“No one has been talking about, except for the president and myself, about the violent Antifa that have been equally to blame for the violence that occurred,” Stewart said.
Stewart argued that establishment Republican leaders are not calling out the violence of the far left because they’re “afraid of being labeled by CNN as racists and bigots.”
Bolduan shot back that people don’t want to call out the alt-left because “someone died,” to which Stewart said, “you’re trying to use this poor woman’s death to say that confederate monuments should be taken down.”
“I’m sorry, is that what I said at all?” Bolduan said. “If we could all be a little intellectually honest here…”
“Intellectually honest? Coming from CNN…” Stewart joked.
“Stop talking. Stop talking for a second,” Bolduan chided. “You’re the guest on my show.”
Take a look at the video.

This woman completely melted down. Good to see someone come on to CNN and bring it.
