PBS host Tavis Smiley and Professor Cornel West went on CNN yesterday to talk about their nationwide “Poverty Tour” and President Obama. Instead, they got into a debate with CNN anchor, Carol Costello.

Smiley and West appeared on “American Morning” and went straight on the attack of President Obama’s debt ceiling deal.

“I think this debt ceiling deal, Carol, was really a declaration of war on the poor,” he said. “The Congress, the president, respectfully, have declared war on the poor…no unemployment extensions for poor people. No closing of a single corporate loophole, not one new tax, not one cent of new tax on the rich and the lucky.”

Costello didn’t agree with Smiley’s statement and that’s when the fireworks began.
