At this point, they’ve called Trump-supporters every name in the book.
Racist, white supremacists, xenophobes.
But you can now add a new name to the book according to one of the latest guests of The View.
She described Trump’s base as “Klan-like”, which of course was an allusion to the Klu Klux Klan.
What’s worse is that the hosts of The View didn’t object or show any opposition to her statement!
Here’s more details on the story from Fox News:
Political commentator Tiffany Cross described President Trump’s support base as “Klan-like” on “The View” Thursday, a statement that received no pushback from any of the co-hosts.
Cross was discussing Trump’s claim in an interview with CBS News earlier this week that more White people are killed by police in America than Black people.
“I wonder what would possess a president to say something like that,” she said, “and it’s really because he’s tossing red meat to his Klan-like base that he needs so desperately to win in November.”
None of the co-hosts — Whoopi Goldberg, Meghan McCain, Sunny Hostin, or Joy Behar — objected to the language she used to describe Trump voters.
On social media, Cross retweeted a post that applauded her use of the phrase “Klan-like base.”
Cross has appeared as a commentator on CNN and MSNBC, is the author of the recently published book, “Say It Louder! Black Voters, White Narratives and Saving Our Democracy.”
During a MSNBC appearance last year, Cross compared the “Make America Great Again” hat favored by Trump supporters to “the Klan hood.”
“I think that this is something that his supporters — and we have to start calling his supporters racists as well,” she said at the time.”That MAGA hat — that MAGA symbol — has come to represent something. It is the new Nazi symbol. It is the new hood, the Klan hood.”
She also mocked Trump supporters as rumors circulated that the U.S. government was interested in purchasing Greenland from Denmark.
“This is something, you know, his supporters are like just blind followers of his, and I wonder when this becomes a talking point of his on the campaign trail, can anybody at the MAGA rally point out Greenland on a map?” Cross asked.
Does this woman truly believe that half of the country is part of the KKK?
It’s truly ridiculous when you think about what those in the media say about the President and his supporters.
But then again, they can get away with it.
Check out some of the tweets on the matter:
And what's truly disturbing is that those in the media aren't the only ones that purport to think Trump supporters are completely racist.
Just last week, Senator Mazie Hirono called Trump supporters "white supremacists."
Take a look at the story from Hawaii News Now:
Congressional Republicans expressed outrage Monday after US Sen. Mazie Hirono called President Trump’s supporters “white supremacists.”
Hirono, D-Hawaii, made the comments during an interview on MSNBC in which she called for a more coordinated federal response to the pandemic and its economic fallout along with systemic racism.
“We should be dealing with economic crisis. And we should be dealing with the racism that is in our country, to which the president speaks to, because he has a base of supporters who are very anti-immigrant and white supremacist,” Hirono said.
“That’s a lot of his base and who he speaks to, so the divisiveness continues.”
Republican Party spokeswoman Elizabeth Herrington called the remarks “disgusting.”
“Democrat senator just called 63 million Americans and counting ‘white supremacists,‘” she said, on Twitter. “Smearing us as ‘irredeemable and deplorable’ just wasn’t despicable enough.”
Asked for a response, Hirono’s office said: “Their president calls white supremacists ‘very fine people’ and uses racist language to try to win an election. Their outrage is misplaced.”
