The Republican National Convention continued on Tuesday night with a lineup of speakers including Donald Trump Jr., Chris Christie and Tiffany Trump. However, no one can forget about the speech of '80s TV star Scott Baio which was given on Monday night. After delivering his speech, Baio joined Tamron Hall on MSNBC the next day for a recap.
The first ten seconds started off smooth, that is until Baio answered Hall’s question about what he meant by “Make America America Again.” Although he delivered what he felt was a strong argument, Tamron was ready to pick up his loose ends and wave them in his face.
She asked him about the hypocrisy within his own party surrounding several socialist economic ideas. This flustered him a bit, but he attempted to trudge on.
Then, Tamron decided to take the gloves off and ask Baio a question that many of us would like an answer to: Why did he post that sexist photo of Hillary Clinton?
The photo in question shows Clinton standing in front of the word "count," yet she is blocking the “o,” which makes it appear that she is standing in front of a terribly offensive word for women.
Baio then got very defensive and said that he “just put that up there” and really meant no specific commentary about it. She then probed him about the offensive photo of Michelle Obama he posted in 2010. And to make things worse, when Tamron went to check Baio’s Twitter to see his updates about his speech, she realized she had been blocked.
Although Baio claimed it was an accident, Tamron pressed him on the divisive nature of such provocative tweets. He made a desperate attempt to twist her words, to which she responded, “I do this for a living, you can’t chop my words up,” like the champion that she is.
In the rest of the interview, Tamron gracefully lets Baio know that he will be held accountable for his actions and he is not the one who is running this game. Don’t just take our word for it, check out the video below!
