CNN’s Randi Kaye asked a group of Republican women if they thought President Donald Trump’s recent tweets attacking four far-left congresswomen were racist and all eight fired back with a resounding “no.”
The segment, which aired on Tuesday night on “Anderson Cooper 360°,” featured a group of eight Trump supporters in Dallas, Texas.
One supporter, Sharon Bolan, said, “I’m a brown-skinned woman. I am a legal immigrant. I agree with him.”
Another supporter, Gina O’Briant, said, “I’m glad that the president said what he said because all they are doing is inciting hatred and division. He didn’t say anything about color.”
Not satisfied with their answers, Kaye said, “Let me just share with you the definition of ‘racism’ from Merriam Webster dictionary: ‘a belief that race is the primary determinate of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.’”
“Based on that definition, do you not think that what the president has been saying—” Kaye continued.
Kaye couldn’t even ask the question before the group of women fired back saying no.
“Do you think it’s just a coincidence that these four congresswomen that the president is going after none of them are white?” Kaye asked.
“I don’t think it matters,” Peaches McGuire Coates responded. “It’s idiotic, what they’re saying, so it doesn’t matter if they’re black or white.”
“Why haven’t they befriended one of their white female congresswoman colleagues and let her join the group?” Dena Miller asked. “They don’t like white people. C’mon, they’re racist.”
