Jake Tapper forces GOP Rep. Mia Love to admit Trump’s ‘sh*thole’ comments about Africa are ‘racist’

Republican Rep. Mia Love of Utah on Sunday accused President Donald Trump of making “racist” remarks about Haiti and African Countries.

In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Love sidestepped the fact that Republican lawmakers had yet to forcefully condemn Trump for reportedly saying that African countries were a “shithole” and immigrants from Haiti did not deserve to stay in the United States.

“Were the comments racist, do you think?” Tapper asked Love.

“Um, well,” Love stuttered. “I think they were — yes. I think that they were unfortunate. I don’t know if they were taken — I wasn’t in the room when the comments were made. I don’t know which context they were made. I’m looking forward to finding out what happened.”

In an epic rant on MSNBC Wednesday, political commentator Donny Deutsch went off telling white people that they need to wake up and prove they're not racists.

"Enough is enough!" he began, looking directly into the camera. "I want to talk to the white people out there, okay. I want to talk to wealthy white people because I’ve had it. I’ve had discussions, when I talk to friends, people I know, [who say] 'It’s good for the economy. It’s good for the economy.' No, it's time."
