During a heated “Hannity” segment on Monday night about President Barack Obama‘s handling of race relations, civil rights attorney Leo Terrell absolutely lost it on columnist Deroy Murdock and host Sean Hannity, with Terrell shouting boisterously before proclaiming that he was “embarrassed to be on the show” with Murdoch.
The conversation turned heated after Hannity and Murdock discussed Obama‘s reaction to events involving race over the past few years, claiming that the president’s comments on high-profile cases haven’t helped unify Americans.
“I think it’s fine to talk about all the different streams that make the great American river such as it is today, but I do think there are many things this president and the attorney general, people like Al Sharpton have done that have made this a much more contentious racial situation than anything I’ve seen in my lifetime,” Murdock said.
From there, Hannity proclaimed that Obama has been a “three-time loser” when it comes to race cases, citing the president’s one-time claim that the Cambridge police “acted stupidly,” as well as the Obama’s views on Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.
“How does a president be so wrong, so often?” Hannity asked Terrell.
It didn’t take long for Terrell, who clearly didn’t appreciate Hannity‘s proclamations, to begin shouting that the host should also be discussing the University of Oklahoma chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, which was shut down Sunday night by the fraternity’s national chapter after a video surfaced allegedly showing members singing a racist chant.
“I cannot believe that you have a guest like Mr. Murdock and yourself are talking about this situation in such a negative manner when in Oklahoma a bunch of white privileged kids used the n-word about people like me,” Terrell said. “Why don’t you talk about Oklahoma today, Sean Hannity?”
Both Murdock and Hannity said that they believed what the fraternity did was wrong, but the heated conversation continued.
“I am embarrassed to be on the show with you,” Terrell told Murdock.
