Schadenfreudalistic – you will watch this more than once!
CNN host gets REALLY “triggered” (I hate that phrase) when

Katie Olivia Hopkins (born 13 February 1975) is an English television personality and newspaper columnist. Hopkins first appeared on television as a contestant on the third UK series of the reality television programme The Apprentice in 2007. She frequently made personal and critical comments on camera, and turned down a place in the series’ final. She subsequently appeared in I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! on ITV and Celebrity Big Brother on Channel 5. She has written a column for British newspapers The Sun and the Daily Mail and stood as a candidate in the 2009 European Parliamentary election.
Hopkins has been criticised in the media and by advocacy groups and politicians for her comments about migrants, and accused of classism and racism. According to Hopkins she is “pushing back the walls closing in on freedom of speech”.
Hopkins suffered from severe epilepsy from the age of 19; the condition was responsible for ending her involvement in the armed forces. In 2016, she underwent successful brain surgery to relieve the condition.
