‘I’m a Democrat because I’m black?’: Watch CNN’s April Ryan battle Jack Kingston over political partisanship

rowdy CNN panel ended with journalist April Ryan pummeling conservative Jack Kingston for saying she’s a Democrat.

The panel was discussing Sean Spicer’s claim on Tuesday that Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink” to using chemical weapons against civilians like Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, a demonstrably false claim the White House press secretary was later forced to walk back.

“This statement happened during Passover, a holy time for a community that was the butt of an atrocity,” Ryan explained to her fellow panelists during CNN’s “Don Lemon Tonight.”

“Ana, Ana,” Kingston said, incorrectly referring to Ryan by the name of another panelist, Ana Navarro.

“That’s not Ana,” Lemon interjected.

“I’m April, this is April,” Ryan said.

“Not all colored girls, are the same, Jack!” Navarro said while Lemon laughed. But Kingston wasn’t finished.
