Republican congressional candidate and former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino was part of a panel discussion, hosted by CNN’s Don Lemon, on Tuesday. The topic of the day was Donald Trump’s “controversial” comments about Hillary and the Second Amendment.
Bongino insisted that Trump’s remarks were NOT calling people to shoot Hillary Clinton. In fact, he said it was “utter absurdity” to interpret them that way.
Lemon didn’t agree.
“Dan, what you’re saying right now makes no sense!” Lemon said. “I’m sitting at home, I’m watching Donald Trump. I have two ears and I have two eyes, and I can see the reactions of the people behind me — we’re not stupid!”
“You should be ashamed of yourself!” he shouted when Bongino tried to interject.
“I’m ashamed that you’re talking to me as if I’m a child, when for 12 years of my life I was a Secret Service agent,” Bongino replied.
When Lemon accused Bongino of “lying to the American people,” the guest just about lost it.
“You don’t know crap about this, Don! You’re a TV guy! I was a Secret Service Agent! Now cut off my mic! Do what you wanna do!”
