Political commentator Angela Rye went toe to toe with conservative radio host Joe Walsh about some of his racist remarks on Twitter.

During a segment on CNN with anchor Brooke Baldwin, Rye called Walsh out about his claims that President Obama was held to a “lower standard” because he is black.

The two began the tense debate after Walsh said Rye was “going off” about an “unwarranted” race and gender commentary.

Rye had enough, and called Walsh out on his “bigotry.”

“I’m sick and tired of this White House, as I was sick and tired of this campaign treating people less than because they’re different because they are black, they’re different because they crossed the border, they’re different because that they serve a different God, or their God is known by a different name. I’m tired of difference being disrespected and mistreated by this White House.”

CNN’s Baldwin tried to remain neutral during the debate, though her views were shifting back and forth between siding with Rye and siding with Walsh.
