Jeffrey Toobin on Trump’s ‘Sh*thole’ Remarks: This Shows He ‘Has Racist Views’
Another day, another bombshell based solely on the president’s remarks.
In this instance, it was reported this afternoon that President Donald Trump referred to Haiti and some African nations as “shithole” countries while attacking protections for immigrants hailing from those areas. As you’d imagine, this caused quite a reaction among the pundit class.
During a CNN discussion, legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin claimed that these comments seem to prove that POTUS is indeed a racist.
“It just shows that, you know, the president has racist views,” he stated. “I mean, you know, how long do we have to dance around that issue?”
Toobin brought up Trump’s infamous Mexican rapist remarks, repeating that the president “has racist views” while noting “that’s part of his appeal.”
“You know what, it’s a feature, not a bug,” the CNN analyst added. “There are a lot of people who like this. I mean, when are we going acknowledge that this is not — that like it’s not some mistake that he has to take back.”
