Everyone on the CNN show was disgusted by a Trump supporter who continued to make excuses for Donald Trump’s racism. Then the Republican on the panel said he would gut him like a fish if he kept it up. The whole world has gone crazy!
On Thursday, the President of the United States once again proved what a racist he is and completely embarrassed this country on the world stage. In a White House meeting with members of Congress to talk about immigration policy, Trump asked, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?”
He went on to say that he wanted immigrants from Haiti and African nations thrown out of the U.S. He said instead he wanted more immigrants from places like Norway (white countries).
Trump’s disgusting comments didn’t sit well with much of the country. And they certainly didn’t sit well with CNN host Don Lemon.
Lemon opened his explosive show on Thursday night saying, “The President of the United States is a racist.”
Later he opened up the discussion about Trump’s shithole comments to his panel. Three of the four guests agreed that Trump never should’ve said what he did. But the one Trump supporter on the panel bent over backwards to defend the indefensible.
Trump supporter John Fredericks managed to thoroughly piss off Lemon and every guest on the panel by making excuses for Trump’s blatant racism.
Republican strategist Rick Wilson, who is also a never-Trumper, took particular offense to Fredericks’ defense of racism. At one point, he became so irate at Fredericks that he said, “If you believe that go on Amazon, order yourself a pointy white hat, head down to Home Depot, and get the wood to build a burning cross. Because that’s the kind of thing you’re talking about. That’s where your attitude leads to.”
After Fredericks responded by attacking Wilson, the Republican furiously said, “You are a weak impotent person who can’t handle the fact that there are people who don’t look like you who want to come to this country because our system is awesome. You hate that. You hate it so much because you’re weak inside.”
Fredericks again tried to attack Wilson, so he cut him off and said, “I will gut you like a fish on this show if you want to keep this up.”
Now it’s a little crazy to say you’re going to gut someone like a fish, but these are crazy times. And I have to say it was actually quite nice to see a lying Trump supporter get called out…especially by a Republican!
