Just after the 9:00 p.m. Eastern hour on Election Night, Donald Trump remained ahead in Florida and it triggered CBS This Morning co-host and Obama family friend Gayle King into two brief freak-outs at the closeness of the election between Trump and Hillary Clinton. 

CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley relayed the vote totals as they stood at 9:02 p.m. Eastern and then King immediately launched into one diatribe demanding that “we talk, Scott, for a second about why he's doing so well with working educated women in Florida.”
