Angela Rye: Her fight with Joe Walsh on twitter and air, the woman of distinction and her confrontation with Katrina Pierson

Angela Rye-Joe Walsh spat

Recently Angela Rye and Joe Walsh had some verbal exchanges first on Twitter and then on a CNN news program. The CEO of IMPACT strategies, Angela Rye had mentioned on her twitter that Obama had “had to be the next best thing to Jesus” during his presidency. In retaliation, the Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh said:

And your way wrong on your main point Angela. We LOWERED the bar for Obama. He was held to a lower standard cuz he was black”.

This angered Angela Rye. Both were called on CNN to discuss what started as a Twitter fight. Angela Rye slammed back:

“I’m not talking to bigots,”

Angela Rye went on to say:

“I am not interested in trying to convince and change the mind of a bigot, someone who will openly troll me and say things that are offensive that he knows are not true,”

She criticized CNN and host Brooke Baldwin for bringing Walsh into this CNN segment.

Refusing to be put down, Jow Walsh kept repeating his statement, to which Angela Rye responded:

“That’s what makes you a bigot!”

She quickly added:

“I’m not interested in having a dialogue with someone like Joe, who has demonstrated a propensity towards bigotry, and he did that on Twitter yesterday, in 140 characters or less.”
