Dem Strategist: GOP Only Cares About Lewd Trump Comments Because They’re About ‘White Women’
Democratic strategist and political commentator Hilary Rosen argued on CNN Sunday morning that Republicans were only outraged by Donald Trump‘s recently uncovered hot mic comments because they were about “white women” and not people of color.
“We’re hearing a lot from people of color over the last couple of days about how– was it acceptable to the GOP when Trump was racist against Mexicans? Was it acceptable to the GOP when he doesn’t believe the Central Park Five?” Rosen said on CNN’s Reliable Sources.
“All of a sudden now because it is white women that he is talking about, now we have to call on him to step down,” Rosen argued.
Trump never specified that his most controversial comments– about grabbing women “by the pussy” and getting away with it because of his wealth– were specifically about white women. But he can also be heard making lewd comments about anchor Nancy O’Dell and soap actress Arianne Zucker, both of whom are white.
