Princeton Professor: Trump Represents the 'Rot' at the Heart of the Country
MSNBC conservative host Nicolle Wallace has made a name for herself as a staunch critic of President Donald Trump. But one of her guests outpaced the host in overt criticism on Tuesday's show.
Eddie Glaude Jr., a professor of religion and African American studies at Princeton University, appeared on a panel and reacted to Trump's continued use of the term "Pocahontas" against Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and his history of racial comments.
Glaude first called the president an "exaggerated indication of the rot that’s at the heart of the country."
“Those are all dog whistles that I grew up with in the 1980s. We know exactly what that is,” Glaude said of Trump's Tuesday insults toward Democratic leadership. “To say that Doug Jones is 'soft on crime' in Alabama. He knows exactly what he’s saying to folks in Alabama, [Jones] likes black people.”
"What we need to simply say is that Donald Trump is a bigot, period,” Glaude said. “He’s a bigot and he’s governing like a bigot.”
