Renowned author Ta-Nehisi Coates slammed President Donald Trump for his treatment of black, female journalists during a Wednesday appearance on MSNBC's "All In" with Chris Hayes.

"There's been this story about how he has treated certain journalists, particularly black women, over the last few weeks," Hayes noted. "Even by his standards, I think particularly disgusting, if I could editorialize for a moment."

Hayes played a clip of Trump lashing out at PBS "Newshour" White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor.

"What's going on there?" Hayes asked.

"Well, I mean, it combines Donald Trump's two great loves, racism and misogyny," Coates replied.

"It's typical Trump," he noted.

"For Yamiche and the other black women who have been insulted like this over the past week -- while it is, you know, completely predictable -- I still think it's absolutely outrageous and disgusting and I think that needs to be said," he added.
