CNN political commentator Angela Rye came unhinged this week during a segment regarding border separations for families who illegally enter the United States, comparing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials to slave traders, the Daily Wire reported.
“Rye became combative and hostile while appearing on CNN’s ‘Cuomo Prime Time’ with host Chris Cuomo and former Trump campaign chief spokesman Jason Miller.”
“What I don’t want to enforce is your president’s nonsense,” Rye said, referring to President Donald Trump as “your president.”
“If you just take yourselves out of it for just a moment, take off the lenses of bigotry for just a moment,” Rye continued.
“Okay, so now we’re getting into the name calling?” Miller responded.
“Um, yes, we are,” Rye admitted.
Back and forth the two argued until Rye decided that it was a good idea to compare ICE agents to slave traders.
“I wish I could tell you where in Africa my ancestors came from, at least part of them, but I wouldn’t know because the same bigots who are sending people back away from their children are the ones who brought my ancestors here on a slave ship,” Rye said.

If Rye comparing ICE to slave traders wasn’t enough for you, you should watch Cuomo’s face throughout this entire video; it’s fantastic.
