Conservative politician Corey Stewart appeared on At This Hour with Kate Bolduan on Thursday to defend white supremacists and monuments to confederate generals. As Kate tried to get a question in, Stewart repeatedly interrupted her, insisted on putting words in her mouth, explained her opinions, and was completely patronizing.
In short, it was a classic mansplain situation and Bolduan was having none of it.
"It stopped being about statues when people showed up with swastikas."— David Blaustein (@blaustein) August 17, 2017
Corey Stewart, a Wisconsin native, is a controversial extremist rightwing 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 as their gubernatorial candidate.
