CNN’s Angela Rye couldn’t stand by any longer as Donald Trump advocate Kayleigh McEnany tried to blame Hillary Clinton for her husband’s extramarital affairs during a discussion about why some women voters were still backing Trump in the wake of his recent scandal over comments he made in 2005 that were vulgar and lewd toward women.
Rye called out Trump’s comments in the video as describing sexual assault when he said he could “grab [women] by the p***y.”
“One of the things I wanted to do was read quickly just what the definition of sexual assault is because he denied any type of sexual assault when Anderson asked him about it at the debate last night, ” Rye explained. “‘Sexual assault is any type of sexual contact or behavior that occurs without the explicit consent of the recipient. falling under the definition of sexual assault are sexual activities as forced sexual intercourse, forceful sodomy, child molestation, incest, fondling and attempted rape.’ If you’re grabbing people in their private areas, that is fondling, that is sexual assault.”
But McEnany tried to turn it around by focusing on Bill Clinton’s infidelities.
“Just so ironic,” McEnany said. “The selective outrage that the left is okay with Hillary Clinton who put private investigators on people who had viable sexual assault claims, it’s selective outrage.”
“No, it’s not!” Rye said before she let McEnany have it. “That’s rape culture. Kayleigh! You’re blaming someone who succumbed to someone committing adultery on her. We’re Christians. Let’s talk about what that is!”
“She was accused of facilitating it last night and she was definitely silent,” McEnany shouted over Rye, and that’s when Rye just laid into her.
“Kayleigh, you’re wrong! You know why. It’s f’ing ridiculous, dude! It’s so ridiculous,” Rye said.
