Wednesday night in Jackson, Mississippi, Donald Trump gave a speech where he flat-out called Hillary Clinton a “bigot”. The line also gave us this wonderful woman…who expresses her shock at what Trump said:
During their interview on Thursday, CNN’s Anderson Cooper gave Trump a chance to explain what he meant. While Trump had used the word “bigoted” to describe some of Clinton’s policy prescriptions in the past, this was the first time he called the candidate herself a “bigot.” Not surprisingly, he then doubled down on the charge.
“Well, she is a bigot,” Trump repeated, pointing vaguely to her treatment of inner-city African-Americans and Hispanics as well as military veterans as evidence.
“But how is she bigoted? Bigotry is having hatred towards a particular group,” Cooper replied.
Trump replied that she is “not doing anything for those communities,”
Cooper again asked, “So you’re saying she has hatred or dislike of black people?”
Trump once again called her policies “bigoted but when Cooper reminded him that he has said she’s “personally bigoted” he said, “Oh she is. Of course she is,” adding, “She’s totally bigoted there’s no question about that.”
Cooper kept at it. “But it does imply that she has antipathy, that she has hatred toward, I guess in this case you’re talking about African-Americans, but I don’t want to put words in your mouth,” he said, as Trump continued to attack Clinton’s positions on issues like poverty. “But hatred is at the core of that? Or dislike of African-Americans?” he asked.
Trump finally relented: “Or maybe she’s lazy.”
