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:

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.
