Comedian D. L. Hughley said on Wednesday that America must first realize its racist nature before the country could evolve.

During a panel discussion on MSNBC, former RNC chairman Michael Steele argued that Donald Trump’s divisive campaign was not a harbinger of how he would govern.

“That campaign was based on hate,” Hughley interrupted. “America saw exactly who it was last night… Exactly who we are.”
