By now it seems that a large majority of the country is totally over Donald Trump’s antics and overall ridiculousness. However, if you’re a political commentator on CNN and you’ve had enough of the Trump talk, what do you do? Well, if you’re Angela Rye, you let your eyes say everything without actually having to utter a word.
Last night, while giving her thoughts on the second night of the Democratic National Convention and Hillary Clinton’s historical party nomination, political commentator Rye simply could not contain her displeasure when conservative commentator Kayleigh McEnany started to rattle off all the great things Trump has done in his life. Let’s just say that Rye’s massive eye roll was one for the books.
New York Magazine has all the details of the epic eye roll below in an exclusive interview with Rye:
On the phone from Philadelphia, Rye told ‘the Cut’ that her eye-rolling in this and other interviews is carefully calibrated so she doesn’t come off as “an angry black woman.” (In an earlier sparring match with McEnany on Anderson Cooper, Rye told the conservative, “I’m so glad you’re telling me what I should be appalled by.”) “For me yesterday, it was such a historic moment. Regardless of whether you’re with Hill or you’re feeling the Bern, we had to appreciate the magnitude of that moment,” she told the Cut. “To switch gears from shattering glass ceilings from Michelle Obama’s dynamic speech to Cory Booker to Eric Holder the night before, to then talk about ISIS? Are we really doing this right now?”
“I think she knows that normally I don’t agree with her,” Rye said. “Kayleigh is someone I consider a friend, we get along very well off-air. And I absolutely believe that Kayleigh wholeheartedly believes the things she says.” Does she think it’s possible to come to any agreements? “I think we can reach a common understanding,” she said. “This country is not going to progress if we can’t have decent civil conversations and be respectful to one another.”

We applaud Rye for voicing her opinion on Trump without actually having to use her voice at all. With the amount of ridiculous things he says regularly, eye rolls are certainly the tamest of reactions.
