Politician Tries To Mansplain Female CNN Pundit, Gets Completely Shut Down

Conservative Corey Stewart appeared on At This Hour with Kate Bolduan on Thursday, August 17th, to defend white supremacists and monuments to confederate generals. As Kate tried to get a question out, she was repeatedly interrupted by Stewart, who insisted on putting words in her mouth, explaining her opinions, and patronizing her beliefs. In short, it was a classic mansplain. Of course, Bolduan was having none of that:

Twitter loves her for putting Stewart in his place:

It was pretty satisfying to watch:

When she finally got Stewart to be quiet for a moment, Boldoun also made a great point:

Perhaps some perspective is needed:

Corey Stewart, a Wisconsin native, is a controversial extremist politician in Virginia where he has leaned hard on his southern roots (reminder: he was born in Wisconsin) during a recent race for governor. He centered much of his campaign around defense of confederate monuments and condemnation of "transgender bathrooms." He was very nearly nominated by state Republicans.

Anyone who says the protest was about statues clearly hasn't seen the event's posters:

Well done, Ms. Boldoun! If discourse is going to happen, it's going to happen with respect.
