Chaos On The GOP Convention Floor
These Americans dont even understand that Puerto Rico is an American commonwealth. They see a Latino woman and they went buck wild. Like kids in a class room when the teacher leaves the room. They threw peanuts at a Black femalecamera woman and said… “this is how we feed animals”… We have people like this deciding who will lead America?
Republican Attendees Threw Nuts At Black CNN Camerawoman, Called Her An ‘Animal’
Two attendees at the Republican National Convention were thrown out of the convention center in Tampa on Tuesday after throwing nuts at a black CNN camerawoman and saying, “this is how we feed the animals.”
CNN reported that multiple witnesses saw it happen, and police immediately removed the two people from the premises.
Talking Points Memo then reached out to CNN, which confirmed that an incident had taken place in a statement it later sent to The Huffington Post.
“CNN can confirm there was an incident directed at an employee inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum earlier this afternoon,” the statement read. “CNN worked with convention officials to address this matter and will have no further comment.” There was no immediate mention of the attack on CNN’s air.
The convention condemned the incident in a statement, saying, “Two attendees tonight exhibited deplorable behavior. Their conduct was inexcusable and unacceptable. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated.”
The incident would be ugly anywhere, but it is especially troubling for a party whose nominee attracted 0 percent of the black vote in a recent NBC poll.
The GOP‘s ugly side revealed itself during the Republican National Convention last night, as an attendee in Tampa, Florida allegedly threw nuts at a black camerawoman working for CNN, taunting, “This is how we feed animals” before she was removed from the convention.
