Watch: CNN Panel Erupts in Total Chaos as Trump Supporters Try to Shut Down Bakari Sellers 

On CNN Wednesday, Trump supporter Pastor Darrell Scott got into a heated debate with former South Carolina Rep. Bakari T. Sellers over Trump’s plan to stop police brutality and help the Black community while at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.

After speaking on the Republican presidential candidate’s behalf Wednesday, Scott tried and failed to describe Trump’s plan for police brutality.

In the nearly 12-minute clip, Sellers and Scott spar over the recent killings of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Dallas.

First, Sellers defends the Black Lives Matter movement from various attacks by conservative panelists. They generalized the entire movement while stating that BLM paints all cops as racist after cases of police brutality involving Black people.

Then Scott jumps in.

“If all of this was happening under eight years of a Trump administration, we’d be blaming it on him. Obama is getting a pass … Let me tell you something, all of the stuff you read about in history books, I lived it … My very first experience with the police was getting beat up by cops when I was 11 years old.”

The pastor also says that Black people are still experiencing the same issues of unemployment, bad education and rioting as in the 1960s.

Then, Scott’s long diatribe about Black-on-Black crime gave way to Sellers’ response.

“How’s Donald Trump going to fix ’em?”

The pastor does not offer a solution and then the panel erupts into inaudible yelling and clapping.
