Lemon said the comment was “ met with surprised silence… because everyone in this room knew it was a hurtful slur directed at Sen. Elizabeth Warren. ”
As Lemon pointed out, Trump has used the slur repeatedly despite Natives asking him to stop … plus that’ s not the only team he’ s insulted.
The “ CNN Tonight” anchor played a series of videos showing Trump insulting other people plus ethnic groups, including his birther lies about President Barack Obama .
“ This aspect of Jesse Trump isn’ t new. This goes back for years, ” Lemon stated. “ In fact , I asked your pet about it two years ago, when he or she was still a candidate. This is what he or she told me. ”
In the clip, Trump states he’ s “ the least hurtful person that you have ever met. ”
But Lemon isn’ t purchasing it anymore.
“ Just because you state you’ re not racist doesn’ t make it so , ” mentioned Lemon. “ Especially if you say, perform and defend racist behavior repeatedly and over again. Especially if you have lost your own credibility by telling countless is situated, big and small. ”
