Former Virginia attorney general Ken Cuccinelli told black Democratic strategist Symone Sanders to “shut up” on CNN’s New Day on Monday. Yep, he told a black woman to shut up.
Cuccinelli was immediately smacked down by host Chris Cuomo. The despicable behavior came during a testy exchange about the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville that left counter-protester Heather Heyer dead and scores injured, including aspiring rapper Deandre Harris.
