On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," commentator Dana Bash laid into President Donald Trump's Twitter attack on NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace.


"Can I just add one thing, if I may?" said Bash. "We're talking right now about the Confederate flag part of the tweet. But there's something else that's really important. He went after an African-American NASCAR driver personally with a bald-faced lie, with a lie saying that he should apologize for this, quote, unquote, 'hoax.' He was the victim, he was presented with the notion that there was a noose in his stall by the head of NASCAR. He didn't do anything wrong except receive this information."

"And the fact that he picked on this driver is very telling and very unfortunate," added Bash.
