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.”

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.
