As Twitchy told you earlier, Max Boot sat on a panel during Don Lemon’s show so he could play the part of disgruntled ex-Conservative and complain about the evil, racist GOP. And as we also told you earlier, he got pretty emotional during the interview and in our humble opinion, made a spectacle of himself.
“I’m embarrassed by the fact you will not call out this blatant racism on the part of Cindy Hyde-Smith and Donald Trump,” says @maxboot, clashing with a fellow panelist. “[T]his is a disgrace to what the Republican Party has stood for for so much of its history.” pic.twitter.com/StTZm1t27b

We can only guess John Harwood rode in to defend and praise Max because he’s trying to make him feel at home with the ‘Left.’
Max is right. values-free politics, like values-free journalism, is bad for our country https://t.co/6WutTQR3Lf

Or you know, journalists could just focus on facts and telling the story and not get so wrapped up in their personal values but we digress. So great, John defended Max … except this really ticked off the Left because John praised the old white guy and ignored Nina Turner.
Sure, Boot took on Jennings, but Nina Turner was the moral center of that clip. “It’s not about political affiliation, it’s about moral affiliation.” @ninaturner

What @ninaturner had to say was important too and shouldn't be overlooked.

Psh, John and his white male privilege.
Max has a book to sell and a conscience to clean.

Something like that.
Calling another panelist a ‘jerk’ while interrupting should get you disinvited from any serious forum.

Same Boot that started out his adult life working for the racist NR under Buckey ?
Boot been wrong his entire adult life; he doesn't deserve any r/t of any kind
