A Fox Business Network panel discussing the downed Malaysia Airlines flight Thursday spiraled out of control as two guests engaged in a heated argument over who is to blame for the tragedy.
Despite limited details surrounding the incident at the time, FBN senior correspondent Charlie Gasparino insisted on wholly placing the blame on Russian President Vladimir Putin. The FBN personality contended that Putin destabilized Ukraine and, thus, is responsible for all of the consequences.
“We don’t know who did this and we don’t know why,” the Wall Street Journal’s Simon Constable cautioned.
That, however, did not persuade Gasparino to drop his argument that Putin is to blame.
“It doesn’t matter,” the defiant FBN personality said.
After minutes of additional pushback from Constable, things escalated.
“You’re so goddamn dumb!” Gasparino told Constable. “I can’t believe I’m hearing this.”
