Actor/producer D.L. Hughley went on CNN and flat out stated, President Trump is “clearly is a racist.”
Hughley: “It’s not just African-Americans, it’s gay, Muslims, it’s Aladdins. So he clearly is a racist, To pretend like he’s not — yesterday he was honoring Native Americans in front of a portrait of Andrew Jackson, who was called Sharp knife. He killed tons of Indians. He can’t pretend. It was not just a slur. It was that he did it in front of somebody that murdered the —Trail of Tears was based on the guy hanging in the portrait behind him.”
CNN’s Chris Cuomo replied: “The constant defense is that is not what he means. The Andrew Jackson thing, he had no idea about his history.”
Then hughley went off on a completely rude and inappropriate rant.
“If he has no idea about history, he’s too dumb to be president. More than anything else, Donald Trump — listen, we have had more presidents who were racist than weren’t. Donald Trump is not new.Donald Trump is retro. We can go back and forth but ultimately a large percentage of Americans, 80 percent of Republicans support him, and a large percentage of Evangelicals support him. If the American population were tired of what he was doing and didn’t like what he was doing it wouldn’t happen.”
“Donald Trump is uncouth and not bright he is inarticulate and an embarrassment. He’s the black dude everybody thought Barack Obama would be. If Barack Obama were acting just like him, he would already be impeached. The idea is we are willing to tolerate this — he’s bad for the brand. He’s messing up the Blue Book value of America.”
