Baltimore Mayor, Maryland Governor Walk Out of Riots Interview With CNN's Don Lemon (Video)

Don Lemon interviews Maryland Governor Larry Hogan and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on Monday.

Lemon referred to the pair as "touchy" after they cut the segment short.

Don Lemon's interview with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan on Monday night did not end on a high note. 

Lemon spoke to the pair during a CNN segment, asking about their response to the Baltimore riots and whether they wish they would have handled the situation differently.

The final question from Lemon concerned what they would say to the people of Baltimore who are losing their businesses and worried about their loved ones.

Lemon was in the middle of asking how Baltimore will enforce its weeklong, citywide curfew when Hogan cut the interview short and thanked him for his time. He and Rawlings-Blake took off their microphones and walked away as Lemon still tried to get them to respond to the curfew query. 

"Obviously, you can see that they're touchy when it comes to the situation," he told viewers after the politicians left.

The riots follow Freddie Gray's April 19 death from a spinal cord injury suffered while in police custody. Gray's funeral was held Monday.

Footage from the interview can be seen below.
