CNN’s Bakari Sellers on Tuesday hammered former Trump White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci for finally realizing that President Donald Trump fuels racism in the United States.
After watching a clip of Scaramucci denouncing Trump’s race baiting, Sellers said that the former White House official wasn’t saying anything that millions of black Americans had been saying for years.
“There’s an old African American… proverb that says, you know, ‘We done told you this!'” Sellers said. “These are not new issues for us!”
Sellers went on to say that while he was happy to see Scaramucci had finally seen the light about the president’s character, it should have happened a lot sooner.
“Thanks for understanding, Mooch, but I am not giving you credit for a low bar of realization!” he said.
Reporter April Ryan, however, said that Scaramucci did deserve credit for having a revelation about Trump and meeting the “moral obligation” to denounce him.
“I’ve been talking to him on email over the last couple of days, and he’s said, ‘Look, I don’t like what the president has been doing,'” she said. “He has been feeling this way for a while.”

During a panel discussion on CNN Sunday, CNN's Ryan Lizza opened by saying that Johnson is in a tight spot as he's trying to negotiate Brexit while serving as an international leader to the G-7. Johnson also needs to negotiate a trade deal with Trump, but he clearly is going about it in the worst possible way.
‘That’s total nonsense’: Bill Kristol punches Santorum right between the eyes on Trump’s failing trade policy
CNN contributor Rick Santorum said he was personally offended on Sunday after conservative writer Bill Kristol attacked President Donald Trump's trade policy.
During a segment about Trump's trade war with China, Kristol noted that the president seems "demoralized" and "depressed."
"His economists have told him privately we're slowing down and we're at some risk of toppling into a recession," Kristol explained. "His political people have told him his numbers are going down not up."
The conservative writer pointed to Trump's racist attacks on black lawmakers as one mistake he has made.
