CBS, Colin Powell Interrupted By Screaming Protester

A CBS This Morning interview with former Secretary of State Colin Powell was briefly interrupted Monday by a screaming protester.

The protester joined the show that was live broadcasting on the National Mall for a museum opening by screaming at Powell.

Powell, who sits on the board of the new Smithsonian Museum of African American History, was discussing how he did not feel like he had to carry around the scars of segregation.

"Colin Powell, you know better!" the protester screamed.

Powell pointed to the protester off-screen and jokingly asked if he was a part of the show.

Host Norah O’Donnell tried to steer the conversation back to the museum’s opening.

The protester continued to scream at Powell for the remainder of the segment and before the show broke for commercial.
