A day after his “Let’s Make America America Again” speech at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, actor Scott Baio sat down with MSNBC’s Tamron Hall and she left no stone unturned, calling out his speech and his controversial tweets about Hillary Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama.

“Let’s talk about your speech. I know you said you went to church and you talked about your religion,” Hall said before showing a picture Baio tweeted on July 10 of Clinton standing in front of the word count with the letter “o” blocked out.

“Did you think about that in church when you tweeted it out?” Hall asked.

“I just put it up there,” Baio answered, reducing it to a meme and stating there was “no commentary attached to it.”

“I guess I’m asking, you’re writing your speech in church, you talk about religion coming back to this country and us having a moral barometer, where was your moral compass?” Hall pressed.

Baio later attempted to divert the conversation by asserting it was “not nice” for Hall to question his faith. But, she quickly brought him to task again.

“2010, you tweeted out an unflattering image of Michelle Obama with the caption ‘wow, he wakes up to this every morning.'”

She then asked Baio why he blocked her from Twitter, to which he responded, “that might have been a mistake” and said the post about Obama was a “joke.”

“Does joking about a woman that way make America great again? Does that make America America again?” Hall pressed again.

The RNC kicked off Monday night and featured presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump walking out to “We Are the Champions.” The event did not go without a few hiccups, including Melania Trump’s controversial speech, which many are arguing was plagiarized from Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Convention speech.
