Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Mark McCloskey Clashes with Chris Cuomo in Bizarre Interview”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The AR-15-toting man who went viral along with this pistol-packing wife for brandishing weapons in the front yard of their St. Louis mansion as Black Lives Matter protestors walked down their private street engaged a lengthy, bizarre segment with CNN’s Chris Cuomo.

Over the weekend, President Donald Trump retweeted the widely ridiculed video of St. Louis lawyer Mark McCloskey, who was holding an AR-15 from the wrong side, and his wife, who widely swung a handgun around and often inadvertently pointed it at her husband, sending it rocketing around the Internet. From the CNN host’s very first question to McCloskey, who appeared alongside his own lawyer, Albert Watkins, the wheels on the interview started coming off.

“How do you feel about becoming the face of political resistance to the Black Lives Matter movement?” Cuomo asked, prompting an immediate, angry response.

“First of all, that’s a completely ridiculous statement,” McCloskey said. “I’m not the face of anything opposing to Black Lives Matters movement. I was a person scared for my life, protecting my wife, my home, my hearth, my livelihood, I was a victim of a mob that came through the gate. I didn’t care what color they were. I didn’t care what their motivation was. I was frightened. I was assaulted and I was in imminent fear they would run me over, kill me.”

When Cuomo pressed on whether any of the protestors physically menaced him, McCloskey shot back: “Did anything happen? Yeah. My life has been ruined.”
