*Tamron Hall went toe to toe with Scott Baio in a heated exchange today following his speech Monday at the Republican National Convention.

The “Happy Days” and “Charles in Charge” star stopped by MSNBC’s news desk outside the RNC in Cleveland and was promptly asked by the journalist to reconcile his avowed Christian faith with his offensive behavior on Twitter.

Hall first mentioned his tweet of a meme on Sunday that seemingly called presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton the “c-word” – a tweet he shared one day before his RNC speech about being a Christian.

“Did you think about that in church when you tweeted it out?” Hall asked Baio of the tweet, which showed a banner of the word “count” with the letter “o” blocked out.

“Tamron, you can look at that any way you want,” Baio said, cutting her off. “It’s the word ‘count.’ That’s what she’s standing in front of. I just put it up there. There’s no commentary attached to it. I didn’t call her anything. And the fact that you question my faith… is not nice.”

Hall, 45, said, “Yeah, but you knew what it meant when you tweeted it out. 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 when you put up a photo of a woman that you disagree with politically?”

The anchor then brought up one of the actor’s 2010 tweets — which featured an unflattering photo of First Lady Michelle Obama with the caption: “Wow, [Barack] wakes up to this every morning.”

“That tweet was a joke,” he said. “Tamron, I’m a guy from Brooklyn. I have a certain sense of humor. I sit with my buddies and we smoke cigars. And we joke…”

Hall interrupted, “But does joking about a woman that way make America great again?”

At one point Baio accused Hall of saying his offensive tweet about Michelle Obama had to do with race, prompting a denial from Hall, along with, “I do this for a living. You can’t chop my words up.”
