Iowa conservative radio talk show host and avid Cruz supporter Steve Deace, went bonkers on his fellow panel members during a segment on CNN's Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin on Thursday. Deace has a history of blowing up and I wonder why they keep inviting him back on?

Moments before the blow up, Deace was overjoyed with the news that former Speaker John Boehner, attacked Sen. Cruz, which he felt was a huge positive for his candidate, but the mention of Colorado voting and Trump sent him into a tailspin.

He really got pissed off at CNN's Donald Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany, who dared to mention that Trump was right about the Colorado primary, when they changed their rules that gave Cruz every delegate.

McEnany said, "This is not about endorsements, I look to actions, what I see is Donald Trump stood up for the people of Colorado to have a vote, Donald Trump tried to enfranchise people, give them a greater voice in contrast to Ted Cruz, who willingly stood against the people the people of Colorado, willingly has been playing this delegate game...throw out the will of the people..."

Steve Deace cut in saying he wanted to respond to her and he did, " Kayleigh, I don't know you, seriously, do you have any integrity at all, I just have to ask...

Baldwin said, "Ouch, come on now, Steve."

Deace continued unfazed, “Is it that important to be on national television? You darn well know 65 thousand people...

"Keep it professional"

"— I am keeping it professional, she’s the one lying! — 65,000 people voted in Colorado at this thing called a caucus, called an election. There has been no voterless election. Every delegate is elected, including the delegates Trump got in PA. This is the biggest lie and the biggest scam from a guy that's lied repeatedly....”

He continued berating Trump by calling his campaign "a scam."

"And there are millions of Americans that watch people like you, sit here and go on these shows and Scottie Hughes and the rest of this cabal of Motley Crew of advisors, who just sit here and fed this guy and lie about him and for him every single day.

"And millions of Americans are freaking just sick of it. Stop lying! There wasn’t a voterless election in Colorado! You’re a liar! Stop lying, please!”

Baldwin finally stepped in and said, "Wow, wow, hang on a second, No one comes on my show and calls anyone a liar.."

The lunacy didn't stop there...
