Maryland Democratic gubernatorial nominee Ben Jealous cursed at a reporter on Wednesday for asking if he’s a socialist.
“Not to put too fine a point on it, do you identify with the term socialist?” a reporter asked Jealous during a press conference on Wednesday.
“Are you f—ing kidding me?” replied Jealous, the former leader of the NAACP. “Is that a finer point?”
The reporter, Erin Cox of the Washington Post, responded: “Thank you, sir.”
Video was posted online by a reporter for The Daily Record, a Maryland news organization.
Jealous is challenging Republican Gov. Larry Hogan, whose campaign has painted the Democrat as a far-left candidate. Jealous has been endorsed by democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders.
On Wednesday, the Democrat dismissed the labels. Source Link:
