On Friday, CNN’s Don Lemon shut down the whole segment when Paris Dennard, an analyst in the administration of George W. Bush said the segment was pushing “fake news.”

Now, in this segment, liberal New York Times columnist and CNN commentator Charles Blow goes on a “Don’t touch me” rant against conservative commentator Kayleigh McEnany.
McEnany told Lemon that she didn’t think he was unfair to Trump, but indicated that she thought other left-wing people were.
“I think some of my left-wing counterparts are very unfair to Trump. I think anytime there’s any sort of vagueness or gaps in the facts — when there’s leaks, for instance — they insert sinister suspicion where it does not belong. I don’t think it’s you, but I do think some of my left-leaning commentators who I disagree with ideologically do that,” she said
As she said that she gestured toward Blow and appeared lightly tapped his arm.
That set him off. “Don’t touch me and then launch into your ‘sinister motivation’ diatribe,” he ranted.
I didn’t realize there is a one-inch barrier where I am not allowed to get close to you,” she retorted as Blow continued to speak. “Now that I know, I will just scoot over that way.”
“You can scoot until you fall off that ledge,” Blow replied. “That’s what I’m telling you is don’t touch me while you’re saying I’m sinister.”
McEnany then tried to calm things down.
“What you just said to me is a lot like what Maxine Waters said today when she said, ‘Look, don’t ask me to meet President Trump. I don’t even want to meet with you.’ We are all Americans. Maybe you don’t feel that way. We have one president. We should all want him to succeed. We should all be friends at the end of the day and hug it out. And if you don’t want to do that, you don’t have to do that,” she said.
But that made him even madder, he then accused McEnany of making “a very personal attack to say I don’t believe I’m an American. Don’t do that,” he said.
How do you manage to make it to adulthood if you’re so unable to deal with someone who has an opinion different from your own?
