Conservative Gets Slammed For 'All Liberals' On-Air Smear

Penny Nance of "Concerned Women of America" tries to sneak in a verbal sucker punch against "all liberals" before answering a question about Putin, but Ryan Lizza makes it about her rudeness and won't let her proceed. More like this, please.

Self described "CEO of Conservative Women of America, Christian, unapologetically Pro-Life, Feisty Author" Penny Nance tried to do the typical sucker punch and run by slamming all liberals today on CNN . Usually, their forked tongues slither in and out so fast that it's hard for a host to make them go back to justify their hit job (see KellyAnne Goebbels, Rudy Giuliani, Jason Miller, etc).

But whoa, she tried to slither away after saying this:

Nance: "I'm gratified to see liberals talking about moral relativism. That's a new subject for them"

Wait a minute.

But Ryan Lizza, of the New Yorker, wasn't having it at all. Not even a little bit.

Lizza: That's not a new subject for me. ma'am, hold on a second. You don't know me. Moral relativism is not -- please don't make a personal attack on me, thank you very much. Go ahead now.

Nance: I would love to talk, but you talked over me, like over a woman, which is disrespectful. let me just say"

OMG stop. This is not about you being a woman. This is about you trying to pull a Conway and failing at it.

She continued whining but Lizza continued making valid points:

Lizza: It is disrespectful to come on air and accuse me of not caring about moral relativism.

Nance (whining): I don't even know you.

Lizza: So don't make accusations like that.

Nance: I am talking about an issue that's very important and you're speaking over me. Let me make my point.

Lizza: You were making a point that I cared about moral relativism.

Nance: You're just yelling at me on air.

Lizza: I'm not yelling at you.

Nance: May I speak? May I?

Lizza: Of course.

Nance: I was going say before I was rudely interrupted that I think Putin is a thug.

Lizza: It's rude to come on air and say things that are incorrect, and if you're going to do that, I will correct you.

The best part? When poor little Penny whined to Poppy about how mean he was being, imploring her to step in against the mean man. Poppy refused.
