‘You have a problem’: CNN historian says Trump can only blame himself for ‘explosive’ racism debate

Published

on

Presidential historian and CNN political analyst Julian Zelizer said on Sunday that President Donald Trump’s long series of racially charged statements have left him on the back foot with critics and shows just how degraded his White House’s messaging has become.

Zelizer — who published an essay Sunday about President Barack Obama’s message for Trump — also said that he worries about the long-term damage Trump is doing to the institution of the presidency.

“Once you have that kind of debate going on, once a president has to answer this kind of question, you already have a problem,” Zelizer told anchor Ana Cabrera. “And this comes out of a long line of comments and incidents we’ve seen.”

Trump’s long history of discrimination issues dating back to long before he ever ran for president are exactly what makes this conversation “so explosive,” said Zelizer.

Again, to be clear, to disambiguate here, we are not talking about Jeffrey Epstein, seen here with the president, who is also now in custody awaiting child sex trafficking charges," Maddow explained. "No, this is a whole different guy who you can see in this picture with the president who is now in federal custody awaiting a different set of sex trafficking charges as well as serious child porn charges and not for the first time."

Published

on

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) predicted on Friday that President Donald Trump "will get worse" because of the lack of impeachment proceedings.

Waters, who chairs the House Financial Services Committee, was interviewed on MSNBC by Chris Hayes.

"I want to switch gears on the last question here, just to talk about what’s happened over the last several days with the president’s attacks on your colleagues, the chants of 'Send her Back,' which the president sort of very, very tepidly and meekly sort of disavowed yesterday, but then essentially reavowed today when given an opportunity to talk about it, he sort of reembraced his supporters who were chanting that," Hayes noted.
