The Democratic National Convention will soon be coming to an end, and it certainly has been a week filled with unforgettable speeches and images. Although most of the historical moments took place on the DNC stage, one political commentator will never be forgotten thanks to the eye roll “heard round the world.”
On CNN Tonight, Don Lemon spoke with several political commentators including Angela Rye and conservative correspondent Kayleigh McEnany. Now although these two have a civil friendship off the air, they have gone head to head before in the name of politics. And things were no different on Tuesday night when Rye could not keep her poker face when McEnany began to speak about Trump.
The clip begins with McEnany somewhat bashing Hillary Clinton and her foreign policies.
"I love that we have facts like Libya in disarray, Iraq in disarray, Syria in disarray, all under the tutelage of Hillary Clinton's State Department," McEnany said, and already you can see Rye is not having it. This is when Don Lemon asked McEnany about the work that Hillary did with schools and adoptive parents that Bill Clinton referenced in his speech.
Then McEnany went full team Trump and said, “Well, that's great. You know, Donald Trump has done great things in his private time, too, for veterans, all across his foundation.” And Angela Rye decided to release the kraken and throw shade so hard that we all forgot about the current heat wave.
Needless to say, the clip instantly went viral and Twitter users are calling Angela Rye the new queen of shade, and she is not surprised.
“My friends have been making fun of me for years,” Rye said to NY Mag. “I don't have the poker face to pretend.”
Well, we don’t need you to pretend, we need you to keep being you!
