On Friday, CNN commentator Jeffrey Toobin said that President Donald Trump’s latest attack on reporters all had one thing in common.
Trump has continued his attacks on reporters. On Friday, he called CNN reporter Abby Phillip’s question about the new acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker “a stupid question.”
He then called veteran White House reporter April Ryan “a loser.”
Toobin said that Trump clearly has a problem with black people since he has attacked Ryan, Phillip, and even CNN’s Don Lemon.
Toobin said that Trump has constantly attacked black people citing, LeBron James, Colin Kaepernick, and Andrew Gillum.
“There is a racial dimension to this. The idea that this was some random selection of journalists he doesn’t like is not the case. It’s always black people with this president,” he said.

Trump campaign provokes outrage with demand that media stop saying protesters were tear gassed
On Tuesday, the Trump campaign issued a statement demanding that the media "correct or retract" the reports that peaceful protesters were tear gassed in front of the White House — citing claims from the U.S. Park Police that the substance used to forcibly disperse the crowd was not tear gas.
This demand did not go over well on social media, with commenters siding with journalists over the official reports — and others asking what the point is for the White House to dispute the type of substance they sprayed at peaceful protesters.
