'You Are Embarrassing Yourself!' Hannity Guest Berates Juan Williams Over Zimmerman Case

As seen on Hannity

To say Juan Williams and Leo Terrell disagreed on tonight’s Hannity would be a vast understatement. Terrell agreed with Fox News host Sean Hannity – for the first time, ever – about the outcome of the George Zimmerman trial.

Zimmerman was acquitted of murder for shooting teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida. While he respects the verdict, Williams charged that it “lacks a sense of wisdom or compassion for the fact of a dead child and the suffering that the parents and that community have gone through.”

Terrell jumped at Williams’ comments, arguing that compassion doesn’t belong in the courtroom. “Shame on you, Juan Williams. You’re not a lawyer. Let me be clear, as a civil rights attorney, there was not a race case here at all and the jury got it right.”

Shouting at this point, Terrell said, “It’s embarrassing for me as an African American to hear Juan Williams, MSNBC, CNN talk about this case as a race case. […] Don’t use this case as a race case unless you’re trying to hustle people to make money. I’m sick of this!”

“Well, I think that’s so far off.  I don’t even know where to start,” Williams responded.

When he tried to explain his points, Terrell interjected, "You are embarrassing yourself!"

Williams continued that he is not trying to make this into a "race case."

"I'm using this as a case where I, as a dad, ... if your child goes down to the store and comes back and some guy's following him, gets in a fight and shoots him, and they say 'well your kid, once the fight started, was beating him up,' you'd say 'this is the craziest thing I ever heard," Williams argued.
