Stopped by a photographer from TMZ at LAX, comedian and actor D.L. Hughley had a few things to say about GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, including how his popularity can be directly attributed to his racism.
With the GOP debate this week, Hughley was asked if the GOP would try to stop the blustery businessman on the sidelines.
“I think the more racist stuff Trump says, the better he does in the polls,” the comedian said. “If he said n****r, he’d be elected tomorrow. Anybody that takes Trump — Trump being president is like Flavor Flav winning a spelling bee. I just don’t know how they take that seriously.”
Hughley also mocked the rest of the GOP field for trailing Trump in the polls.
“I think he’s turned the whole thing into a reality show,” Hughley explained. “How sorry are the other people running if Donald Trump is their best choice? How bad can your self-esteem be hurt when you’re getting your ass beat by Donald Trump in a political event.”

Here’s why Rudy Giuliani can not legitimately claim to be Donald Trump’s lawyer
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani bills himself as President Donald Trump's attorney. But one former prosecutor explained why that is not an accurate description during a Monday appearance on MSNBC.
"Meet the Press Daily" anchor Katy Tur interviewed former Southern District of New York Assistant U.S. Attorney Mimi Rocah, who is a distinguished fellow in criminal justice at Pace Law School.
"So this news that the SDNY is looking into what Rudy Giuliani was doing overseas in Ukraine, explain what they’re doing. Also, very weird since Giuliani used to run the office," Tur noted.
Intel Democrat says Trump’s Russia adviser’s testimony was ‘incredibly helpful’ for impeachment
On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) told anchor Wolf Blitzer that President Donald Trump's former Russia adviser Fiona Hill's testimony was "incredibly helpful" for the impeachment investigation.
"You were in the room for Fiona Hill's closed-door deposition today," said Blitzer. "How helpful do you believe her testimony to your investigation will be?"
"Incredibly helpful, Wolf," said Swalwell, who serves on the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees. "Also helpful that she showed up, and, like some others, has chosen to defy orders from the president and the State Department to not show up. And when witnesses actually just show up, it advances our investigation."
Trump could be an ‘unindicted co-conspirator’ in investigation into Rudy Giuliani: MSNBC panel
President Donald Trump could be an "unindicted co-conspirator in the federal investigation that has already resulted in indictments of two associates of Rudy Giuliani, the panel on MSNBC's "Deadline: White House" on Monday.
"The question today, will Trump’s conduct in the Middle East -- which has already led to one of the fastest and most dramatic political realignments in history, one that strengthens Syria’s Assad, Iran, and Russia, all American adversaries -- contribute to a political realignment here at home, wherein Republicans participate in the congressional investigation into Donald Trump's demand that a foreign leader dig up dirt on a political rival," anchor Nicolle Wallace said.
