During her Saturday MSNBC show, Melissa Harris-Perry tore apart E.W. Jackson, Virginia Republicans' controversial nominee for lieutenant governor.

Jackson, now a nominee for the second-highest political office in Virginia, has previously compared Planned Parenthood to the KKK and has called members of the LGBT community "perverted" and "very sick people."

In one of her signature segments, Harris-Perry penned a "letter of advice" to Jackson. She said:

Dear Bishop E.W. Jackson: It’s me, Melissa. May I call you "Ewwww"? Because I’ve heard what you’ve had to say about your politics. And quite frankly, it’s pretty disgusting.

Listen to Harris-Perry's entire letter in the video above.
