CNN host interrupts Florida candidate Andrew Gillum eight times after he is targeted by racist robocall

CNN host Dana Bash repeatedly interrupted Democratic candidate for Florida governor Andrew Gillum during an interview on Sunday.

On CNN’s State of the Union program, Bash began her interview with Gillum by noting that President Donald Trump had attacked the candidate as a “failed socialist mayor.”

“We want access to good and affordable and accessible heath care,” Gillum explained, but Bash cut him off.

“And I want to get to a lot of those issues,” Bash said before bringing up a racist robocall that targeted Gillum.

Gillum reminded Bash that he was also the target of a racist remark by Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis, who seemed to refer to Gillum as a “monkey” in a recent Fox News interview.

“I want to make sure that we don’t racialize and, frankly, weaponize race as a part of this process,” Gillum said. “Which is why I’ve called on my opponent to really work to rise above some of these things. People are taking their cues from him, from his campaign and from Donald Trump. And we saw in Charlottesville that that could lead real dangerous outcomes.”

Speaking over Gillum again, Bash pointed out that DeSantis, who used the “monkey” slur, had condemned the racist robocall.

According to a Raw Story count, Bash interrupted Gillum during at least eight of his answers. The guest was allowed to finish answering three of Bash’s questions without interruption.

President Donald Trump cheered on his top Hispanic advisor Steve Cortez, who appeared before a New Mexico audience. Trump asked Cortez which he loved more, Hispanics or America, which prompted CNN's Ana Navarro to blast the president for racism. Meanwhile, Trump's latest CNN shill cried "political correctness."

"Look, I suspect he didn't want to offend Steve Cortez and I suspect Steve Cortez was not offended," Navarro said. "But really what a stupid thing to say. Right? To somehow ask the question about whether you love the country more than you love Hispanics -- they are one and the same."

Trump adviser ties his tongue in knots trying to explain away the president’s anti-Hispanic racism

Published

On Monday night, President Donald Trump received heavy criticism after a rally in New Mexico in which he turned to one of his Hispanic advisers, Steve Cortes, said he "looks more like a WASP than I do," and asked him "Who do you like more, the country or the Hispanics?"

Talking with CNN's Chris Cuomo on Tuesday, Cortes was completely undeterred from going to bat for Trump against accusations of racism.

"Forget about how he put what he put to you last night. He's not the greatest wordsmith. It was a little clumsy, you recognize that, none of that matters to me," said Cuomo. "Here's what matters to me. How can the Latino community believe that he loves them when he has said so many anti-Mexican and even anti-Puerto Rican things, how can he love Latinos when she's shown such animosity?"
