Don’t tell Symone Sanders to shut up.
Former Virginia Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli learned that the hard way after he told Sanders to “shut up for a minute” during a heated segment on CNN in August about the deadly protests in Charlottesville, Va.
“You don’t get to tell me to shut up on national television,” Sanders responded tersely. “Under no circumstances do you get to speak to me in that manner. You should exhibit some decorum.”
At 27, Sanders is making a name and building a career for herself in politics as a Democratic strategist, cable television analyst, and in-demand event speaker by being unafraid to speak her mind.
