Muslim journalist rips Trump spokesperson for candidate's 'despicable hypocrisy' towards Islam
Journalist Dean Obeidallah and Trump spokesperson Katrina Pierson - CNN screen grab

Trump campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson and Daily Beast contributor Dean Obeidallah tore into each other Friday night on CNN over comments the candidate made saying Muslims hate America.

CNN host Erin Burnett noted the protests going on at Trump rallies before pressing Pierson on the candidate's inflammatory comments about Islam.

"What's the rationale behind that?' the Trump spokesman was asked.

Pierson defended Trump and labeled the “culture” of Islam as the problem before pointing out that polls taken in countries that are predominately Muslim show a great deal of distaste for then U.S.

Obeidallah, who is Muslim, returned fire by slamming Trump's hypocrisy in his business dealings in Muslim countries, slamming Islam on the campaign trail while making money overseas.

"Let's be honest,"Obeidallah said. "Donald Trump says here in America, Islam hates us. Then he goes in Dubai and does multi-million dollar business deals."

"Donald Trump love Muslims when he making money with them," he continued. "He loves you when he making money and demonizes you when he's getting votes. He's a despicable hypocrite. A special kind of hypocrite."
