RNC Attendee Throws Peanuts at Black CNN Employee, Calls Her An “Animal”

On Tuesday, Republicans gave us a prime example of why the whole party needs a makeover.
It seems that things got a little out of hand on the floor of the Republican National Convention. One attendee thought their idea of free speech would be cute when they threw PEANUTS at a black camera operator at CNN.
Yes, a grown ass person at the Republican Convention threw FOOD at a member of the media! They followed it up telling the CNN employee:
“This is how we feed animals.”
Jesus, take all of my wheel right now. I know several of you, like me, would be ready for war up in that convention hall if it happened to us.
CNN confirmed that the incident happened. However, they did not release the employee’s name or comment further on the episode. They said the following in a written statement:
“CNN can confirm there was an incident directed at an employee inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum earlier this afternoon. CNN worked with convention officials to address this matter and will have no further comment.” [SOURCE]
I need to know a few things here. First, show me the employee. Then I want to know what she said as these peanuts were being hurled at her. How do you remain professional and not set it off in the convention hall when this happens?
And THIS is the Republican Party that the GOP wants you to believe in and vote for? Not on my watch…
