On Monday, CNN political commentator Angela Rye expressed her disbelief that President Donald Trump was her president, refusing to acknowledge the commander-in-chief’s title.
Rye appeared on John Berman’s show for a discussion surrounding “Russian meddling” along with Republican Rep. Jack Kingston.
“Do you really think they would have had five people in a meeting if this was about collusion with Russia?” stated Kingston, the senior adviser to the Trump campaign. He then defended Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with the Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya. “It just defies logic.”
CNN’s commentator responded: “There are a lot of things that your president has done to defy logic — let’s at least acknowledge that.”
“Your president too, Angela. Your president, too,” Kingston fired back.
“Well, he’s your president,” Rye refused to call Trump “her” president again.
Berman jumped in to moderate the debate, saying, “the president of the United States.”
Following the heated exchange, Rye posted the debacle on Twitter.
Rye tweeted: “Another day of #RussiaGate. #AlternativeFactChecker! #NotMyPresident”

Then, a Twitter commenter responded with the perfect picture, completely blowing up her little on-air temper tantrum:
Ouch — she’s not going to like this blunt truth.
SHARE on Facebook and Twitter if you’re proud to call Donald Trump your president!
