Watch A Politician Ask A Journalist To Stop Doing Her Job

The chair of the Republican Party made the mistake of going on Soledad's show. Then he made the mistake of assuming the status quo of dodging all questions was still acceptable. Then he basically begged for mercy.

At :30, she asks an easy question.  At 2:45, Reince goes for his normal dodge. At 3:20, Soledad brings the smackdown in her special gentle way. At 4:32, he begs Soledad to be mean to people other than him. At 4:40, she basically says, "Bless your heart."
