As might be expected, Friday morning’s panel on CNN’s New Day was all over President Donald Trump’s “racist rant” about immigrants where he referred to their home countries as “sh*tholes.”
CNN commentator Errol Lewis delivered a brutal attack on the President after New Day host Alisyn Camerota noted that Trump’s comments were so offensive that members of his own party who attended the meeting leaked them to the press, and her co-host, John Berman added, “Sh*thole in and of itself, I’m sorry, isn’t what’s offensive here. It is adding Norway is the distinction between the two that makes crystal a clear what’s going on.”
“The senators who were shocked and offended, but not enough to open their mumbling mouths at the moment of truth or to come forward and stand in front of a camera and say ‘I disassociate myself from that racist filth,'”Lewis began. “Those people people who have no courage and can’t do that, they should be where we focus our attention.”
“The president is a lost cause as far as I’m concerned,” he continued. “We have an unbroken history. You can go all the way back to housing discrimination, birtherism, Central Park Five, his history. He has told us over and over who he is, what he thinks and has brought to the Oval Office. He is who he is. The question is what are the rest of us going to do?”
“It starts with the senators who are in the room,” Lewis explained. “If you’re an elected senator, there are millions in many cases of people who elected you. If the president is going to go on a racist rampage, surely you can open your mouth and say, ‘maybe I don’t need to be in this meeting,’ or I disassociate myself from this.”
Lewis went on to add that Trump’s comments will affect ongoing negotiations with Congress.
“I don’t think Chuck Schumer (D) from New York, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), any of these folks will have any bit on of wiggle room once they hear from the Black Caucus, their pro-immigrant base in these big cities,” Lewis cautioned. “They’re not going to let them sort of look the other way and just kind of go past this. when you throw a toxic racial bile into the middle of all of this the way the president did, it makes it that much harder.”
