WATCH LIVE: IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS

CNN’s Camerota Confronts Literal Nazi Running For GOP Congressional Seat in Insane Interview

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota confronted a literal Nazi who is currently poised to nab the GOP nomination for Congress — and the interview predictably derailed, as the Nazi ranted about “the Jewish media.”

Arthur Jones, a holocaust denier, anti-Semite, white supremacist and all around lunatic is set to become the Republican nominee for an Illinois congressional seat near Chicago — and appeared on CNN to defend himself.

“It is shocking to hear how vocally and unapologetically racist you are,” Camerota opened the interview. “Are you a Nazi?”

Jones contended that he does not call himself a Nazi, but an “American patriot and statesman.”

Camerota noted that Jones dresses in Nazi garb and celebrates Hitler’s birthday.

“You’re a Nazi,” she charged.

Things then started to get heated when Camerota said that Jones’s website is “filled with the most vile, rancid rhetoric I think I’ve ever read.”

“It’s not vile and rancid it’s the truth!” Jones shot back. “You jews media, you’ve gone absolutely nuts!”

As Camerota patiently tried to reason with Jones, he began shaking his fist at her.

“The Democrats and Republicans, it’s the cursed two party, Jew party system can’t stand it!”

“You deny the Holocaust,” Camerota noted.

“Yes I deny the Holocaust, it’s an extortion racket!”

“You can have your own conspiracy theories, but you can’t have your own facts,” Camerota replied.

“Not conspiracy theories, facts! The Jews basically control the country, the Congress, the economy the media,” Jones replied.

When Camerota began listing Holocaust facts, Jones exclaimed: “Poppycock!”

The two sparred for a while more, before the New Day host brought an end to the rollercoaster ride.

“Arthur Jones, we’ve heard your opinion and we’ll see what happens,” Camerota concluded. “Chances are, you’ll go down in flames.”
